JULY 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 Spiritual Children,

 

As Orthodox Christians our instruction in how we are to live our lives comes from the CHURCH and not from the fallen world. Everyday we are called to read the Spiritual councils from the HOLY FATHERS. One key or great instruction is to ‘SIMPLIFY’ our lives. The Holy Fathers say that the more we have, or own, the more complicated our lives become. The more things we own, the more we have to WORRY about their care and preservation!  All of these issues, although not sinful or wrong, are distracting and keep us from pursuing the one thing which alone is needful.  The simpler we can make our lives, the more we can lower our financial obligations the FREER we become, the fewer earthly cares we have, and the more we can pursue God undistracted!

 

 

With love in Christ,

Fr. Lev
