Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
8/1/23, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

"This is the cause of all evils: the ignorance of the Scriptures. We go into battle without arms, and how ought we to come off safe?" -St. John Chrysostom, Homily IX on Colossians.

In order to help increase the general knowledge of scripture in our parish family we present here for your edification the scripture readings for the coming week. At least one Gospel Reading and one Epistle reading are assigned for each day of the year (although during Great Lent the readings are from the Old Testament). Hearing or reading only those readings appointed for Sunday merely scratches the surface of the great spiritual wealth that the scriptures provide us. Some of the readings are easily understandable others are less so. As Orthodox Christians we do not make private interpretation of scripture, but rather consult the fathers of the Church for their explanations to aid us in our understanding. Those wishing to have access to such explanations are asked to contact Fr. Gregory or inquire in the kiosk for further reading in this regard. Bibles may also be acquired in the kiosk.

Monday: Hebrews 11:17-23, 27-31 & Mark 10:46-52
Tuesday: Hebrews 12:25-26, 13:22-25 & Mark 11:11-23
Wednesday: James 1:1-18 & Mark 11:23-26
Thursday: James 1:19-27 & Mark 11:27-33
Friday: James 2:1-13 & Mark 12:1-12
Saturday: Colossians 2:8-12 & Luke 2:20-21, 40-52

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
8/1/23, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Without temptations, pure souls are not known, virtue does not show, patience is not discernible. Without temptations, it is impossible for the soul to become healthy. They are the cleansing fire which makes the soul pure and bright.

Teaching of the Holy Fathers

Do not plan to spend feast days in drinking wine, but in regenerating your intellect and purifying your soul. If you eat gluttonously and drink wine you will provoke anger in the person whom the feast is honoring.
