Gregory Palamas

What is most important about St. Gregory Palamas is not the details of his life but his clear explanation of the Faith: the teaching about God’s vision for our lives. Gregory taught that we cannot experience God through education, philosophy, intellectual discussion and debates. God is a person with whom we are to be in a relationship, not a topic to be discussed or facts to memorize. He taught that God desires us to know Him, to experience Him, to share His life, to become one with Him. Even today, there exists a tendency in some non-Catholic Churches to focus on knowing about God and these churches resemble lecture halls in which pastors deliver lengthy sermons which are the focus of the Sunday worship. The center of these churches is a man in a pulpit rather than the presence of God on the holy altar. The emphasis seems to be learning about God more than experiencing God. Gregory studied the Holy Scriptures, read the early Church Fathers and learned from his own experience on Mount Athos that it was possible to know and experience God in this life. This is what our Lord prayed for in His final prayer before His passion and death, that we share His life and become one with Him:

May they all be one, as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, so also may they be in Us. (John 17:21)

The Holy Apostle Peter says we are destined and called to “partake of the divine nature”. (2 Peter 1:4)

SANCTUARY CANDLES:

The Sanctuary candles will be lit for the entire week for your intentions. The left Sanctuary candle is for the health & well-being of Monica Matteo and the right Sanctuary candle is for the health & well-being of Pam Kerola both from Greg & Paula Slemons.

Why no ashes for us Byzantines? I’m not discussing this is in an elitist way or in a way that is critical of our Christian brethren who have the practice of spreading ashes on their heads to mark the beginning of Great Lent. The tradition of the ashes has to do with sorrow over sins, and marking ourselves as sinners. The tradition of Clean Sunday is that while we acknowledge our sinfulness, the theme of the day is the need for spiritual cleanliness.

Many people associate Great Lent strictly with fasting, in other words with deprivation of food. While fasting is part of Great Lent, Great Lent is not only about deprivation. It is about discipline and spiritual growth. The discipline to stay away from certain kinds of food will train our minds to also stay away from certain kinds of behaviors. If we tame the thing we want the most often, food, we can tame other things that we want—greed, power, ego, lust, control, anger, etc.

Lent is a time to look at our relationship with God. Does our life reflect loyalty and closeness to God our Father, or have we squandered our faith and His gifts to us in profligate living, becoming like the Prodigal Son. Lent is also a time to look at our relationship with one another. Do we love our neighbor as ourselves? Are we concerned with his welfare—with feed, clothing, visiting and helping him?

The Lenten services provide both instruction and inspiration. The Great Compline emphasizes stillness. This service is quiet and sedate. Most of the service is the reading of Psalms of repentance. The Pre-Sanctified Liturgy provides us the opportunity to receive Christ through Holy Communion in the middle of the week, as a way to strengthen and support us in our time of fasting. And of course, each Sunday provides us with the opportunity to hear the Divine Liturgy of St. Basil the Great. Even more important than giving up food, we should each give up some time each week to attend additional worship services.

Rite of blessing home on Feast of Theophany

TROPARION, Tone 1

At your baptism in the Jordan, O Lord, worship of the Trinity was revealed;
for the Father’s voice bore witness to you, calling you his beloved Son,
and the Spirit in the form of a dove confirmed the truth of these words.
O Christ God, you appeared and enlightened the world. Glory to you!

KONTAKION, Tone 4

You have shown Yourself today to the world, and Your light, 0 Lord, has shined upon those who, recognizing You, cry out to You : You have come and revealed Yourself, o inaccessible Light.

PRAYER FOR THE BLESSING OF HOMES

O God, our True Light and Savior, You have deigned to be baptized in the Jordan by John the Baptist to renew all men by the cleansing water of regeneration (Tit. 3:5) and to enter under the roof of Zacchaeus, bringing salvation to him and his house (lk. 19:9), now, You, 0 lord, protect also all those who dwell in this house from all harm and injury; grant them Jordan ‘s blessing, purification of soul and body, and good health ; and hear all their supplications, which are for their salvation and life eternal.

For blessed are You, 0 lord, together with Your Eternal Father and Holy Spirit, now and ever, and forever. Amen.

(Sprinkle Holy Water inside your house while saying:) By the sprinkling of this Holy Water may this house and all it contains be blessed and sanctified in The Name of The Father and of The Son and of The Holy Spirit. Amen.
