WHEN UNDERSTANDING IS QUENCHED.

John CHRYSOSTOM: If your eyes were completely blind, would you choose to wear gold and silk? Wouldn’t you consider your sound health to be more desirable than mere externals? For if you should lose your health or waste it, all the rest of your life would be unhappily affected. For just as when the eyes are blinded, some of the ability of the other members is diminished, their light being quenched, so also when the mind is depraved, your life will be filled with countless evils. As therefore in the body it is our aim to keep the eye sound, so also it should be our aim to keep the mind sound in relation to the soul. But if we destroy this, which ought to give light to the rest, by what means are we to see clearly any more? For as he who destroys the spring may also dry up the river, so he who has quenched the understanding may have con-founded all his actions in this life. So it is said, “If the light that is in you be darkness, how great is the darkness?” For when the pilot is drowned, when the candle is put out, when the general is taken prisoner, what sort of hope will remain for those that are under his command?

‘They immediately left the ship and their Father”

The second Sunday after Pentecost shows us the practical application of the great call to renunciation formulated by Jesus in the gospel for the first Sunday. The gospel read today at the liturgy (Matt. 4:18-23) tells of the calling of the first apostles. On the shore of Lake Galilee, Jesus sees Simon and Andrew fishing. He says to them: ‘Follow me’. He wants to make them fishers of men. ‘And they straightway left their nets, and followed him’. Further on Jesus meets James and John, also fishermen, in the company of their father, Zebedee. Jesus calls them. ‘They immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.’ The new disciples abandoned their nets and their ships: ‘Jesus sometimes asks us to renounce our profession, our instruments of work, whatever we possess. But some sons, at the call of Jesus, abandon their father too: sometimes he wants us to abandon family affections, human friendships, created love. This is not a purely negative attitude. Jesus’ call has a very positive aspect: one must follow the Master. But the first apostles could not have followed the Master if they had not first of all left their ships, and their nets, and their father. And what have I abandoned in order to follow Jesus? What does he want me to leave?

PETROVKA:

By Fr. Basil Shereghy

ST. PETER’S FAST is the most recent of our four yearly fasts. It was probably introduced by monks within the last few centuries in memory of the fact that these two

apostles strengthened themselves spiritually by fasting. The Church, using the example of these two illustrious saints, prescribes a period of fast immediately before their feasts.

The so-called Peter’s Fast begins on Monday after the Sunday of All Saints and ends on

the 28th of June. Because, however, the Sunday of All Saints does not fall every year on

the same day, this fast may last anywhere from eight days to six weeks.

According to the tradition of our Archeparchy, faithful are to abstain from meat products on Wednesdays and Fridays during Peter’s fast.

Descent of The Holy Spirit

Regarding the manner in which the Holy Spirit descended upon the disciples, Saint Symeon the New Theologian makes a remark that is most helpful for properly understanding this event. He says that this mode of acting of the Holy Spirit – by means of a loud noise as of a rushing mighty wind, and with tongues of fire – was something unique. The Holy Spirit, he observes, comes very calmly, in the form of spiritual light, and evokes joy. The passage in which he touches upon this point is this:

The power of the Holy Spirit, which is bestowed upon him who loves God and keeps His commandments, does not appear visibly in the form of fire, nor does it come with a loud sound like a violent wind – for this happened only in the time of the Apostles for the sake of the unbelievers. Instead, it is seen spiritually in the form of spiritual light, and comes with all calm and joy. Guide to Byzantine Iconography, Vol. 1, by Constantine Cavarnos

Our high priest prays as God and man.

Cyril of Alexandria:

Christ, who manifested himself in the last times above the types and figures of the Law, at once our high priest and mediator, prays for us as man. And at the same time he is ever ready to cooperate with God the Father, who distributes good gifts to those who are worthy. Paul showed us this most plainly in the words “grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” Christ, then, prays for us as man and also unites in distributing good gifts to us as God. For he, being a holy high priest, blameless and undefiled, offered himself— not for his own weakness, as was the custom of those to whom was allotted the duty of sacrificing according to the Law, but rather for the salvation of our souls.

A Mother’s Daily Prayer

Dear Lord, it’s such a hectic day,

With little time to stop and pray,

For life’s been anything but calm,

Since you called me to be a mom…

Running errands, matching socks,

Building dreams with matching blocks,

Cooking, cleaning, and finding shoes

And all those things that young ones lose,

Fitting lids on bottled bugs,

Wiping tears and giving hugs,

A stack of last week’s mail to read,

So where’s the quiet time I need?

Yet as I go to bed each night,

My heart is filled with true love’s light.

As I take one last peek, I see

This treasure you have given me,

God’s own sweet blessing sleeping there,

The answer to a Mother’s Prayer.Here is a bit of advice to father’s on Mother’s Day:

Legally, a husband is the head of the house and a pedestrian has the right
of way. Both are perfectly safe and within their rights as long as they do
not try to confirm it!

The Samaritan Woman

Before You preach, leave your water jar. Augustine: Having heard, “I that speak with you am he,” and having received Christ the Lord into her heart, what could she do now but leave her water jar and run to preach the gospel? She cast out lust and hurried to proclaim the truth. Let those who would preach the gospel learn: let them throw away their water jar at the well. You remember what I said before of the water jar. It was a vessel with which the water was drawn, called hydra, from its Greek name, because water is hydor in Greek; just as if it were called aquarium, from the Latin. She threw away her water jar then, which was no longer of use but a burden to her, such was her eagerness to be satisfied with that water. Throwing her burden away to make Christ known, “she ran to the city and says to those men, ‘Come, and see a man who told me everything I ever did.”‘ Tractates on the Gospel of John 15.30.

Bishop Fulton J. Sheen:There is something good in everything. Evil has no capital of its own; it lives in goodness as a parasite. But loving the partial goodness in others we bring them more quickly to the circle of Goodness which is God. This was the tactic of Our Lord when He spoke to an adulteress at the well. There was nothing in common between His Divine Goodness and her sinful life, except a love of a drink of cold water. So He started there…and led her on to a declaration that He was Love and Savior of the world.

Inner meaning

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.

JOSEPH OF ARIMATHEA:

Little did Joseph know that his own tomb would become the Holy Sepulchre. Joseph not only buried Jesus in his tomb, he later became a missionary to England. He was a member of the Sanhedrin, which was the highest court of the Jewish nation, as well as their supreme religious council. This group voted to put Jesus to death. Joseph, however, abstained from voting. He was chained and imprisoned for burying Jesus. However, Jesus appeared to him after His burial, and so Joseph believed. He was released from prison and exiled from Jeruselem. He traveled with the Apostle Philip and many other apostles to England, winning converts along the way. They were all thrown into prison by the chief, who would only release them if they remained in one area, a reservation, of his choosing. It was swampland, which the Christians all drained and made habitable. The area is now known as Glastonbury. They built a chapel to the Archangel Gabriel, and Joseph is buried in Avlon.

A MEANS TO AN END

As precious as it is, faith is but the means to an end. For the soul, faith is the seed — spiritual life is the fruit. Life is the natural result of faith. Every person’s life is affected by what each believes. A person’s belief forms the principles of conduct in life. Faith in Christ is the means to a spiritual life with Him. “These are recorded so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that, believing this, you may have life through His name” (John 20:31). Jesus came that we might have life, and that we have it more abundantly.

We can, therefore, conclude that faith is more than doctrine and rules. It is a profound commitment which confers on us the ability to live a new life in Christ. Faith is –God’s gift to us. It cannot be merited. It is given to us because God loves us. We are asked to respond to God’s loving initiative. Since we have a free will, we can fail to respond (as did many who saw Jesus) and even refuse God’s free gift of faith. “Wherever your treasure lies, there your heart will be also.” (Lk. 12:34)
