FEBRUARY PASTORAL ADDRESS

TO THOSE WORKING OUT THEIR SALVATION AT THE SPIRITUAL HOME OF HOLY TRINITY

 

GLORY TO JESUS CHRIST!  GLORY FOREVER!

 

Dear Brethren

We are deep into the winter months and most of the time the sky is overcast blocking the sun from reaching us, and many people at this time of year fall into depression. So we need to be reminded of something that will keep us going … and that something is God’s infinite MERCY for us.

St. Issac the Syrian puts it this way: 

“as a handful of sand thrown into the ocean, so are the sins of all flesh as compared with the mind and mercy of God."

 “Just as a strongly flowing fountain is not blocked up by a handful of earth, so the compassion and mercy of the Creator is not overcome by the wickedness of His creatures.” 

 So when you might fall into despair during these winter months, remind yourself of God’s Love & Mercy for you … be inspired to get up and continue to love the gift of life that the Lord has given you and then receive joy in doing His work!

 

With love in Christ,

Fr. Lev
