Helping Hands Day is sponsored by GCU Lodge 442. The Spring clean up and landscaping project will be held on Saturday May 8, 2021 from 9:00 am -12:00 (noon) at Infant Jesus Church grounds in Boardman.
On Saturday, May 22, 2021 from 10:00am-12:00 (noon) helping hands will be at St. Nicholas Byzantine Cemetery on Hyatt Street in Campbell.
All parishioners, friends, and families are invited to join for this project. The more volunteer “helping hands” we have, the more we can do to beautify our church grounds and St. Nicholas Cemetery for the Spring and Summer seasons.
There will be a light lunch provided at Infant Jesus and beverages and snacks at St. Nicholas Byzantine Cemetery.
The Sanctuary candles will be lit for the entire week for your intentions. For the week of April 18-24, the right Sanctuary candle was for special intentions of Tillie Chachko. It was inadvertently omitted. The left Sanctuary candle this week is for +Monica Matteo from Greg and Paula Slemons.
John 5:1-9 (continued) certain scholars think this passage is an allegory. The man stands for the people of Israel. The five porches stand for the five books of the law. In the porches the people lay ill. The law could show a man his sin, but could never mend it; the law could uncover a man’s weakness, but could never cure it. The law, like the porches, sheltered the sick soul but could never heal it. The thirty-eight years stand for the thirty- eight years in which the Jews wandered in the desert before they entered the promised land; or for the number of the centuries men had been waiting for the Messiah. The stirring of the waters stands for baptism. In point of fact in early Christian art a man is often depicted as rising from the baptismal waters carrying a bed upon his back. It may well be that it is now possible to read all these meanings into this story; but it is highly unlikely that John wrote it as an allegory. It has the vivid stamp of factual truth. But we do well to remember that any Bible story has in it far more than fact. There are always deeper truths below the surface and even the simple stories are meant to leave us face to face with eternal things.
