OCTOBER PASTORAL ADDRESS

 

TO THOSE FAITHFUL WHO ARE WORKING OUT THEIR SALVATION

AT THE SPIRITUAL HOME OF HOLY TRINITY

 

GLORY TO JESUS CHRIST!  GLORY FOREVER!

 

Dear Brothers & Sisters, 

 

Our Lord Jesus Christ says to us in the eighth Beatitude: "Blessed are those persecuted for righteousness' sake for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven" (Matt 5:10). 

 

With these words, the Lord teaches that His Disciples are persons who will be abused because of their convictions and their actions.  Virtue in Christ will not always be honored and recognized. Just as Jesus was persecuted so will those who pick up their Cross to follow the Lord. 

 

So when difficulties and persecution come your way, for being a Christian, look at it as an opportunity to witness to Jesus as being the 'Son of God'. Allow the JOY of the Lord to radiate from you in your sufferings, being thankful that you may witness to Him.  Always keep your eye on the prize ... the Kingdom of Heaven!

 

 

With Love In Christ

Fr Lev

ADDITIONAL PRAYER DURING THIS UNCERTAIN TIME

O God Almighty, Lord of heaven and earth, and of all creation visible and invisible, in thine ineffable goodness, look down upon us, thy people gathered in thy Holy Name. Be our helper and defender in this day of affliction. Thou knowest our weakness. Thou hearest our cry in repentance and contrition of heart. O Lord who loves mankind, deliver us from this Corona Virus. Send thine angel to watch over us and protect us. Grant health and recovery to those suffering from this virus. Guide the hands of physicans, protect the caretakers, and preserve those who are healthy. Enable us to continue to serve our suffering brothers and sisters in peace that together we may glorify thy most honorable and majestic name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages.
