help my unbelief. chrysostom;

The Scrip­ture shows that this man is very weak in faith. This is evident from many things: from Christ’s saying, “All things are possible to him who believes,” and from the fact that the man him­self as he approached said, “Help my unbelief.”And it is evident from Christ’s ordering the demon “never to enter him again” and from the man’s saying again to Christ, “If you can.” But you will say, “If his unbelief was the reason why the demon had not gone out of the boy, why does he blame the disciples?” To show that they can often cure the sick, even though no one brings them in with faith. For just as the faith of the one bringing in the sick was often sufficient for receiving a cure even from lesser ministers, so the virtue of the minister was also sufficient to achieve a miracle even without the faith of those bringing them in. Both of these are dem­onstrated in the Scriptures; for those around Cornelius drew to them the power of the Spirit by their faith. And in the time of Elisha, when no one believed, a dead man was raised. the gospel of Matthew, homily 57.3.

Covid Obligations – Restrictions Lifted

We have all known and felt the impact of COVID-19 in so many ways as individuals and families, among friends and at work.  It has been a time of hardship and struggle, of separation and isolation.  It has also had an impact on our lives of faith.  Now, as life returns to normalcy in so many ways, it is also time for us to return to Sunday Divine Liturgy.  In our Archeparchy, we will reinstate the obligation to attend the Divine Liturgy in person on Sundays and Holy Days beginning on Sunday, August 15, 2021, the feast of the Dormition of the Theotokos, the Mother of God.  As your Archbishop, I had dispensed you from this obligation in the Spring of 2020 as the developing coronavirus pandemic required people not to assemble in group settings.  Now, with the impact of the pandemic considerably reduced, it is again possible for the faithful to assemble for the Liturgy. 

This obligation, as is always the case, does not apply to those who are seriously ill, have a serious health risk, as well as, those who have significant fear or anxiety of being in a part of large group at this time.  Likewise, the obligation does not apply to those who care for those who cannot attend the Divine Liturgy in person. Those excused from participation in the Divine Liturgy are encouraged to spend time in prayer, meditating on the Death and Resurrection of the Lord, reading the Sacred Scriptures, and uniting themselves to Christ in his worship of the Father of us all.  Those who are legitimately excused are also encouraged to listen to the radio broadcast of the Divine Liturgy, or to participate through one of the computer or face book live stream offerings from one of our churches. The spacing restrictions and special communion practices are also discontinued as of August 15, 2021.

You give them. chrysostom:

Note carefully the Teacher’s skill. Observe with what discre­tion he draws them toward believing. Observe how deliberately this unfolds. For he did not simply say, “I will feed them.” The deeper signif­icance of that would have not been easily under­stood. So what does he say? “They need not go away; you give them something to eat,”

He did not say “I give them” but “you give them.” For at this point their regard for him was essentially as to a man. They said to him, “We have only five loaves here and two fish.” At this point Mark adds, “They did not understand the saying, for their heart was hardened.” For they were continuing to crawl like babies. the gos­pel of matthew, homily 49.

Send them away: Cyril of Alexandria:

Let us examine carefully what this sending away of the crowds is all about. Some of those who fol­lowed Christ were afflicted by evil spirits and begged to be delivered from them. Others were afflicted with various sicknesses from which they sought relief. Therefore, because the disci­ples knew that Jesus had only to consider what those who were suffering longed for and it would be accomplished, “they sent them away.” They did this not so much because they thought Jesus’ time was too valuable but because they had a love for the crowds and, as though already having an understanding of pastoral care, they began to care for the people. fragment 175.

TWO BLIND MAN

The start of this encounter is in public. There are crowds round Jesus, and the blind men are caught up in the general emotion. They shout at Jesus using a formal title, ‘Son of David,’ as though he was a powerful messianic figure dispensing health to crowds. Jesus waits until he is in the house, where he can meet the blind men in person, and question their faith.

Lord, you do not meet me as one of a multitude, but face to face, on my own, where you can test the truth of my words, free from the illusions of mass emotion.

In matters of faith, we are all blind in some way. But, if I allow Jesus to touch my heart, he will help me see more clearly the path I should follow.

The blind men had faith in Jesus’ power of healing. Do I ever experience the inner healing power of God?

The blind men remind me of the need to be persistent in my prayer. Is what I ask God for now in my mind during the day? Do I look with expectation and hope to see how God is answering me? If I don’t, what might my lack of perseverance say?

I give thanks to God for those times when my eyes have been opened and ask God to lead me to appreciate truth.

Their Sacrifice, Our Freedom

Fifty-six men signed the Declaration of Independence. Their conviction
resulted in untold sufferings for themselves and their families. Of the 56 men, five were captured by the British and tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons in the
Revolutionary Army. Another had two sons captured. Nine of the fifty-six
fought and died from wounds or hardships of the war. Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships sunk by the British navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts and died in poverty. At the battle of Yorktown, the British General Cornwallis had taken over Thomas Nelson’s home for his headquarters. Nelson quietly ordered General George Washington to open fire on the Nelson home. The home was destroyed and Nelson died bankrupt. John Hart was driven from his wife’s bedside as she was dying. Their thirteen children fled for their lives. His fields and mill were destroyed. For over a year, he lived in forest and caves, returning home only to find his wife dead and his children vanished. A few weeks later, he died from exhaustion.

Conquer Satan

Make an effort , then, to meet more frequently to celebrate God’s Eucharist
and to offer praise. For, when you meet frequently in the same place, the
forces of Satan are overthrown, and his baneful influence is neutralized by
the unanimity of your faith. Peace is a precious thing: it puts an end to
every war waged by heavenly or earthly enemies.

MOST GRACIOUS HEAVENLY FATHER, We thank you for our earthly fathers, those to whom you have entrusted the responsibility to provide loving protection of their families and guidance of their children. We thank you, also, for our priests and bishops, whose spiritual fatherhood is so vital to the faith of your people. May our earthly fathers imitate the manly courage of Abraham, Jesse, and Joseph, and all the holy fathers of the past in providing wise counsel to the children you have given to their care. And may our spiritual fathers be guided by the examples of Saints Peter and Paul, all the Apostles and their saintly successors. Give them valiant faith in the face of confusion and conflict, hope in time of trouble and sorrow, and steadfast love for you, for their families, and for all your people throughout the world. Assist all fathers of families, all spiritual fathers, and all Christian men, that through your Grace they may steadily grow in holiness and in knowledge and understanding of your Truth. May they generously impart this knowledge to those who rely on them. As you, our Heavenly Father, so loved the world, sending your only Son to be our Savior and Redeemer, we ask you to help all men to imitate His fatherly gentleness and mercy toward those who are weak; His humility, perfect obedience to your will, and fearless witness to your Truth. May their lives be examples to all of heroic faithfulness to you. We ask your blessing on all those to whom you have entrusted fatherhood. May your Holy Spirit constantly inspire them with justice and mercy, wisdom and strength, fidelity and self-giving love. May they receive your Grace abundantly in this earthly life, and may they look forward to eternal joy in your presence in the life to come. AMEN!

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.
