Dean's Message


Church Etiquette 

 Over the past few months I have had several conversations with members of our St Nicholas Cathedral family about the state of our church etiquette. I have heard comments ranging from “They shouldn’t be dressed like that,” to “The children are distracting.” It can be difficult attending divine worship in a Cathedral filled with so many faithful. With each member of our Church, standards on these issues vary, and sometimes they vary drastically. To help us ‘get on the same page’ when it comes to church etiquette, I offer the following thoughts.

 Proper Dress - When it comes to how we dress for church, some prefer formal suits and dresses, while others see nothing wrong with shorts and t-shirts. Neither is ‘right vs wrong’ per se. Some cultures even have ‘designated attire’ for attending Church. We do not have designated outfits nor do we expect everyone to own, let alone wear, a formal suit. What is important for us to always remember is that we must dress modestly in life. The idea of modesty should not be limited to attending church services. That is where I think I noticed the biggest difference in the past few decades. Our society has lost the idea of modesty, and that has affected the way many of us dress for church. PROPER DRESS FOR CHURCH SHOULD BE MODEST. I will purposely not define modest, except to say, our clothing should never be a distraction to others. Our common faith and spiritual unity should inspire us not to be a scandal or a distraction to other members of our Church family. So, when you attend Church services please think of those around you when you choose your clothing, and avoid being the focus of attention.

 Proper Timing - We have developed a very bad habit of arriving late for Church and leaving early. The Church fathers established the services of the Church to help us grow closer to God, and when we miss the beginning and end, we actually degrade our relationship with Him.  The prayers flow from beginning to end, especially in the Divine Liturgy. When we arrive late and leave early, our prayers are incomplete. Speaking of Divine Liturgy specifically, we must remember the entire Divine Liturgy is prayer, and we show disrespect to God when we arrive ‘just in time’ for Holy Communion, and then make it worse when we leave ‘right after’ before the prayers of thanksgiving. When you come to Church PLAN TO ARRIVE AT THE BEGINNING AND REMAIN UNTIL THE END of any service. I know some services are longer and others, but we also remember time spent in the Church services is time spent with God, which is always a blessing.

 Proper Behavior - I am sorry to say, there are many times during the services that, from the Holy Altar, I can hear conversations that are taking place in the Narthex. Attending Church is a communal experience, but that should not mean we enter the Narthex and begin chatting like we are in the kafeneion. The Narthex is the beginning of our prayer for any service we are attending. We should enter quietly, make our offering to the Church, light our candles and venerate the Holy Icons. None of these behaviors require chatting about the most recent sports game etc. We are here to worship God, not gossip. Unfortunately, many times this chatting continues as we enter the Cathedral and lasts throughout the divine services. This is not only disrespectful to God, it is a distraction to others in the Church. If we want to say anything while we are in Church, then we should say/sing the hymns. When we are in the Church WE MUST BE REVERENT AND PARTICIPATE in the prayers and hymns of the services.

 Children in the Church - For me, this is the most important thought about our church etiquette. Our children watch our every behavior. If we are chatting and not engaging in the services, they will chat and not engage. If we arrive late and leave early, they will do the same, or often worse. OUR CHILDREN MUST FEEL WELCOME AT ALL TIMES. Sometimes that means we will hear some crying and see some fidgeting. That’s what kids do, and so long as our children are behaving ‘age appropriately’ they should never be taken outside. Together we will teach our children to love being in Church.

 I share these thoughts with you not to scold you, but to encourage you to a deeper appreciation of our Orthodox Christian worship. Being in Church is at the core of our spirituality, because being in Church is being with God. Church etiquette isn't about the law, it is about helping each other spend the proper time in prayer with each other and God.



Fr Theofanis


Ο Ευαγγελιστής Ματθαίος αναφέρει στην ευαγγελική περικοπή τη συνάντηση του Ιησού με κάποιο Ρωμαίο στρατιωτικό και το θαύμα της θεραπείας του δούλου του εκατόνταρχου. Το θαύμα αυτό της θεραπείας του δούλου του εκατόνταρχου, έγινε αμέσως μετά την επί του όρους ομιλία. Αξιοσημείωτο στο θαύμα αυτό του Ιησού Χριστού, είναι ότι αυτό έγινε χάρη στη θαυμαστή πίστη ενός ειδωλολάτρη αξιωματικού του ρωμαϊκού στρατού, ο οποίος έδειξε μεγάλο ενδιαφέρον για τη θεραπεία του δούλου του. Το αξιοσημείωτο είναι, ότι δεν ενδιαφέρθηκε για τη θεραπεία ενός συγγενικού του προσώπου, αλλά για το δούλο του. Είναι μάλιστα άξιο αναφοράς ότι την εποχή εκείνη οι δούλοι δεν είχαν καμιά αξία.

Ας σταθούμε στο σχολιασμό αυτό σε δύο χαρακτηριστικά για τα οποία επαινείται ο εκατόνταρχος από τον Χριστό. Ο εκατόνταρχος της ευαγγελικής περικοπής, διακατέχεται από δύο σημαντικές αρετές που πρέπει να χαρακτηρίζουν κάθε άνθρωπο, την ταπείνωση και την πίστη. Έτσι, έκανε πράξη αυτό που γράφει ο απόστολος Ιάκωβος: «Δείξε μου την πίστη σου από τα έργα σου» 

Ο εκατόνταρχος έχοντας μεγάλη πίστη ζητά από το Χριστό με ένα του λόγο, ο οποίος είναι αρκετός για να θεραπευθεί ο δούλος του. Για τη βεβαιότητά του αυτή, ότι ένας λόγος είναι αρκετός το δικαιολογεί με ένα απλό και αναντίρρητο τρόπο, όπως οι στρατιώτες υπακούουν στις εντολές του αξιωματικού και σπεύδουν να τις εκτελέσουν, πόσο μάλλον θα υπακούσει η ίδια η φύση στο θέλημα του Δεσπότη και Δημιουργού της. Ο εκατόνταρχος χρησιμοποιεί μία εικόνα του επαγγέλματός του, την υπακοή των κατώτερων στρατιωτικών στους ανώτερους, για να καταλήξει στο συμπέρασμα ότι το ίδιο ισχύει και πρέπει να εφαρμόζεται στις σχέσεις Θεού και ανθρώπων. Οι άνθρωποι πρέπει να υπακούουν στο θέλημα του Θεού. Ο Κύριος αποκαλύπτοντας την πραγματική πίστη που είχε ο εκατόνταρχος, του αναγγέλλει ότι θα έρθει στο σπίτι του. Ο Ρωμαίος αξιωματικός αναγνωρίζοντας την αναξιότητά του να δεχθεί το Σωτήρα του κόσμου στην οικία του, ομολογεί: «Ουκ ειμί ικανός, ίνα μου υπό την στέγην εισέλθεις». Παρόλο που είναι άνθρωπος διακεκριμένος ανάμεσα στο ρωμαϊκό στρατό, αναγνωρίζει ότι και ο ίδιος ενώπιον του Θεού είναι μικρός και ασήμαντος, ανάξιος, όπως ομολογεί, για να τον επισκεφθεί ο Υιός του Θεού.Η ταπείνωση του είναι τόσο μεγάλη, γιατί, αν και ειδωλολάτρης, που ήταν και δεν μεγάλωσε με τις παραδόσεις και τις διδαχές της αληθινής πίστεως στον ένα Θεό, όπως ένας Ισραηλίτης της εποχής εκείνης, εν τούτοις, έχει επίγνωση της αμαρτωλότητάς του θεωρεί ανάξιο τον εαυτό του ώστε να δεχθεί τον Κύριο στο σπίτι του. 

Το σημερινό μας Ευαγγέλιο μας διδάσκει πως η ταπείνωση στον άνθρωπο πρέπει να είναι ειλικρινής και αυθεντική και όχι επίπλαστη και υποκριτική. Η ταπείνωση βρίσκεται στην απλότητα. Ο Χριστός είχε αυτή την απλότητα όπως και πολλοί Άγιοι. Η ερωτηση προς τον εαυτό μας είναι μια : Εχουμε την ίδια απλότητα ώστε να δεχόμαστε τους γύρω μας όπως είναι, με τα πάθη τους τις αδυναμίες τους ?  Μόνον με την απλότητα που γεννιέται από τη ταπείνωση μας ο Θεός με τη σειρά του θα μας δεχτεί στην αγκαλιά του με όλα μας τα αμαρτήματα ,τα λάθη μας και μόνο τότε θα επισκεφτεί το σπίτι μας οπως του εκατόνταρχου, χαρίζοντας μας ευλογίες.  Αμην

Greetings in Christ,

Continuing the thread of updates following my meeting with the ministries leaders. Within the last two weeks I’ve met with the Preschool staff, and toured the historic building from which it is run. It is a great blessing for this community to provide a safe and clean environment, Orthodox in faith and practice, wholesome in value, supporting the creation and propagation of foundational learning in the early formative years of the children under our hospice and care. 

The Greek School meeting was very informative to the role it has played throughout many years to support and sustain the study of our spoken and written Hellenic language in the youth of the community. I hope to see growth in a continued, healthy interest in learning our cultural and ancestral language. I went to the Soup Kitchen and was happy to see so many volunteers preparing food for those in need. I went with them to the Shepherd Center where I was able to see the whole facility, and learn of its place as a support to the greater Tarpon Springs community.  After seeing the bookstore I was Impressed with the variety and selection of Items which are made available to the community and travelers alike. I met with the committee members and learned about how it runs through a core group of volunteers. I met with Philoptochos and learned about the ways that they are serving the Orthodox and local community through their ministry. The Ladies gave me a brief history of their work, including the building of the local GreenHouse, and support program. My meeting with the Little Lambs organizers was a great introduction to the ministry. I visited with them at their next gathering, where I met the group of mothers and their children. I was happy to learn of their dedication in offering social and educational opportunities for young mothers like themselves. Finally, I met with our Byzantine Chanter to learn about the lesson opportunities provided for those interested in the traditional musical practice of our Church. In the near future, I look forward to my introduction with the Choir and Sunday School whom I have yet to meet with.

On the Fifteenth of July, the Boy Scouts are having a Camp In event at the Father Tryphon Hall Which I will be Attending.

Righteous Father Anthony of the Kiev Caves

Saint Anthony, who was born in the province of Chernigov, was tonsured in the Monastery of Esphigmenou on the Holy Mountain, Athos, from whence he was sent by his abbot to Kiev to plant the monastic life in 1013, two years before the death of Saint Vladimir, Great Prince of Kiev. Dwelling at first as a hermit, the Saint gradually drew to himself others wishing to emulate his way of life. When the number of the brethren grew, a wooden church in honour of the Dormition of the Theotokos was built, thus laying the foundation of what was to become the renowned Kiev Caves Lavra. Refusing the abbotship, Saint Anthony entrusted this to his disciples, first to the blessed Barlaam, then to Saint Theodosius (See May 3), and his whole life struggled as a cave-dwelling hermit. He reposed in peace in 1073 at the age of ninety.

Deposition of the Precious Robe of Our Lord Jesus Christ in Moscow

After the Crucifixion of our Lord, His most precious robe was obtained by lot by a certain Elioz, a Georgian soldier who took part in the execution. He in turn brought it to Georgia where it remained until that land was overrun by the Persians. Shah Abbas, seeking to establish good relations with Tsar Michael Feodorovich, sent the Robe to Moscow as a gift for the Tsar and Patriarch Philaret. This took place in March of 1625, and was appointed to be celebrated on this day in July.

Hymns of the Day

Resurrectional Apolytikion in the 3rd Mode

Let the heavens rejoice; let the earth be glad, for the Lord has shown the mighty power of His arm. He trampled down death by death and became the firstborn of the dead. From the depths of Hades, He delivered us and granted to the world great mercy.
Εὐφραινέσθω τὰ οὐράνια, ἀγαλλιάσθω τὰ ἐπίγεια, ὅτι ἐποίησε κράτος, ἐν βραχίονι αὐτοῦ, ὁ Κύριος, ἐπάτησε τῷ θανάτῳ τὸν θάνατον, πρωτότοκος τῶν νεκρῶν ἐγένετο, ἐκ κοιλίας ᾅδου ἐρρύσατο ἡμᾶς, καὶ παρέσχε τῷ κόσμῳ τὸ μέγα ἔλεος.

Seasonal Kontakion in the 2nd Mode

The protection of Christians unshameable, intercessor to our Holy Maker, unwavering, do not turn from the prayerful cries of those who are in sin; instead, come to us, for you are good; your loving help bring unto us, who are crying in faith to you: Hasten to intercession and speed now to supplication as a protection for all time, Theotokos, for those who honor you.
Προστασία τῶν Χριστιανῶν ἀκαταίσχυντε, μεσιτεία πρὸς τὸν Ποιητὴν ἀμετάθετε. Μὴ παρίδῃς ἁμαρτωλῶν δεήσεων φωνάς, ἀλλὰ πρόφθασον, ὡς ἀγαθή, εἰς τὴν βοήθειαν ἡμῶν, τῶν πιστῶς κραυγαζόντων σοι· Τάχυνον εἰς πρεσβείαν, καὶ σπεῦσον εἰς ἱκεσίαν, ἡ προστατεύουσα ἀεί, Θεοτόκε, τῶν τιμώντων σε.

Gospel and Epistle Readings

Epistle Reading

4th Sunday of Matthew
The Reading is from St. Paul's Letter to the Romans 6:18-23

Brethren, having been set free from sin, you have become slaves of righteousness. I am speaking in human terms, because of your natural limitations. For just as you once yielded your members to impurity and to greater and greater iniquity, so now yield your members to righteousness for sanctification.

When you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. But then what return did you get from the things of which you are now ashamed? The end of those things is death. But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the return you get is sanctification and its end, eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

4th Sunday of Matthew
Πρὸς ῾Ρωμαίους 6:18-23

Ἀδελφοί, ἐλευθερωθέντες δὲ ἀπὸ τῆς ἁμαρτίας, ἐδουλώθητε τῇ δικαιοσύνῃ. Ἀνθρώπινον λέγω διὰ τὴν ἀσθένειαν τῆς σαρκὸς ὑμῶν· ὥσπερ γὰρ παρεστήσατε τὰ μέλη ὑμῶν δοῦλα τῇ ἀκαθαρσίᾳ καὶ τῇ ἀνομίᾳ εἰς τὴν ἀνομίαν, οὕτως νῦν παραστήσατε τὰ μέλη ὑμῶν δοῦλα τῇ δικαιοσύνῃ εἰς ἁγιασμόν. Ὅτε γὰρ δοῦλοι ἦτε τῆς ἁμαρτίας, ἐλεύθεροι ἦτε τῇ δικαιοσύνῃ. Τίνα οὖν καρπὸν εἴχετε τότε ἐφʼ οἷς νῦν ἐπαισχύνεσθε; Τὸ γὰρ τέλος ἐκείνων θάνατος. Νυνὶ δὲ ἐλευθερωθέντες ἀπὸ τῆς ἁμαρτίας, δουλωθέντες δὲ τῷ θεῷ, ἔχετε τὸν καρπὸν ὑμῶν εἰς ἁγιασμόν, τὸ δὲ τέλος ζωὴν αἰώνιον. Τὰ γὰρ ὀψώνια τῆς ἁμαρτίας θάνατος, τὸ δὲ χάρισμα τοῦ θεοῦ ζωὴ αἰώνιος ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ τῷ κυρίῳ ἡμῶν.

Gospel Reading

4th Sunday of Matthew
The Reading is from Matthew 8:5-13

At that time, as Jesus entered Capernaum, a centurion came forward to him, beseeching him and saying, "Lord, my servant is lying paralyzed at home, in terrible distress." And he said to him, "I will come and heal him." But the centurion answered him, "Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof; but only say the word, and my servant will be healed. For I am a man under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to one, 'Go,' and he goes, and to another, 'Come,' and he comes, and to my slave, 'Do this,' and he does it." When Jesus heard him, he marveled, and said to those who followed him, "Truly, I say to you, not even in Israel have I found such faith. I tell you, many will come from east and west and sit at table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven, while the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness; there men will weep and gnash their teeth." And to the centurion Jesus said, "Go; be it done for you as you have believed." And the servant was healed at that very moment.

4th Sunday of Matthew
Κατὰ Ματθαῖον 8:5-13

Τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ, εἰσελθόντι δὲ αὐτῷ εἰς Καπερναοὺμ προσῆλθεν αὐτῷ ἑκατόνταρχος παρακαλῶν αὐτὸν καὶ λέγων· Κύριε, ὁ παῖς μου βέβληται ἐν τῇ οἰκίᾳ παραλυτικός, δεινῶς βασανιζόμενος. καὶ λέγει αὐτῷ ὁ ᾿Ιησοῦς· ἐγὼ ἐλθὼν θεραπεύσω αὐτόν. καὶ ἀποκριθεὶς ὁ ἑκατόνταρχος ἔφη· Κύριε, οὐκ εἰμὶ ἱκανὸς ἵνα μου ὑπὸ τὴν στέγην εἰσέλθῃς· ἀλλὰ μόνον εἰπὲ λόγῳ, καὶ ἰαθήσεται ὁ παῖς μου. καὶ γὰρ ἐγὼ ἄνθρωπός εἰμι ὑπὸ ἐξουσίαν, ἔχων ὑπ᾿ ἐμαυτὸν στρατιώτας, καὶ λέγω τούτῳ, πορεύθητι, καὶ πορεύεται, καὶ ἄλλῳ, ἔρχου, καὶ ἔρχεται, καὶ τῷ δούλῳ μου, ποίησον τοῦτο, καὶ ποιεῖ. ἀκούσας δὲ ὁ ᾿Ιησοῦς ἐθαύμασε καὶ εἶπε τοῖς ἀκολουθοῦσιν· ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, οὐδὲ ἐν τῷ ᾿Ισραὴλ τοσαύτην πίστιν εὗρον. λέγω δὲ ὑμῖν ὅτι πολλοὶ ἀπὸ ἀνατολῶν καὶ δυσμῶν ἥξουσι καὶ ἀνακλιθήσονται μετὰ ᾿Αβραὰμ καὶ ᾿Ισαὰκ καὶ ᾿Ιακὼβ ἐν τῇ βασιλείᾳ τῶν οὐρανῶν, οἱ δὲ υἱοὶ τῆς βασιλείας ἐκβληθήσονται εἰς τὸ σκότος τὸ ἐξώτερον· ἐκεῖ ἔσται ὁ κλαυθμὸς καὶ ὁ βρυγμὸς τῶν ὀδόντων. καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ᾿Ιησοῦς τῷ ἑκατοντάρχῳ· ὕπαγε, καὶ ὡς ἐπίστευσας γενηθήτω σοι. καὶ ἰάθη ὁ παῖς αὐτοῦ ἐν τῇ ὥρᾳ ἐκείνῃ.


Wisdom of the Fathers

Let us hearken, as many as are to receive Christ: for it is possible to receive Him even now. Let us hearken, and emulate, and receive Him with as great zeal; for indeed, when you receive a poor man who is hungry and naked, you have received and cherished Him.
St. John Chrysostom
Homily 26 on Matthew 8, 4th Century
