Posted by Fr. Gregory


Our Guardian Angel rejoices over our good deeds and grieves when we do evil. We should try to live in such a way that the Angels may rejoice at our lives.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
17/11/19, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

"This is the cause of all evils: the ignorance of the Scriptures. We go into battle without arms, and how ought we to come off safe?" -St. John Chrysostom, Homily IX on Colossians.

In order to help increase the general knowledge of scripture in our parish family we present here for your edification the scripture readings for the coming week. At least one Gospel Reading and one Epistle reading are assigned for each day of the year (although during Great Lent the readings are from the Old Testament). Hearing or reading only those readings appointed for Sunday merely scratches the surface of the great spiritual wealth that the scriptures provide us. Some of the readings are easily understandable others are less so. As Orthodox Christians we do not make private interpretation of scripture, but rather consult the fathers of the Church for their explanations to aid us in our understanding. Those wishing to have access to such explanations are asked to contact Fr. Gregory or inquire in the kiosk for further reading in this regard. Bibles may also be acquired in the kiosk.

Monday: I Thessalonians 1:1-5 & Luke 12:13-15, 22-31
Tuesday: I Thessalonians 1:6-10 & Luke 12:42-48
Wednesday: I Thessalonians 2:1-8 & Luke 12:48-59
Thursday: I Thessalonians 2:9-14 & Luke 13:1-9
Friday: I Thessalonians 2:14-19 & Luke 13:31-35
Saturday: II Corinthians 8:1-5 & Luke 9:37-43

Please find below several very nice articles on how to read the scripture from an Orthodox point of view.

By St. Justin (Popovich):

By Bishop Kalistos (Ware):

This short article explains to us not just HOW to read the scriptures, but also what our goal should be in reading the scriptures. A short read and well worth it:

As noted in the article above we need God's help and blessing to read and understand the scriptures correctly. What better way to entreat God's help in this regard than through prayer? Please find the prayer before reading the scriptures here:

Confession & Communion at St. Vladimirs + Rule to Prepare for Communion 
15/11/19, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Confession and Communion are the two sacraments we most often partake of as Orthodox Christians and thus it behooves us to learn about these, how to prepare for these, and how to best take advantage of the Grace that our Lord freely gives us in these sacraments. At St. Vladimirs we have created a special web site for this purpose with much information in this regard. Please find the web site listed below and please contact Fr. Gregory with questions!

Synaxis of the Holy Unmercinaries is this Sunday 
15/11/19, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


This Sunday marks the annual feast of all the Holy Unmercinaries. The most famous of these is the Great Martyr Panteliemon, but there are many more saints who served humanity in the name of Christ by healing those suffering from physical (and often spiritual diseases) without accepting any remuneration for their efforts. They understood that they could heal only by the power of God, which was freely given to them. This feast day marks the patron feast of all health care workers, of which we have many in our parish. All who work in this profession are called upon to prepare themselves to partake of Holy Communion this Sunday by attending the Vigil on Saturday evening, receiving the mystery of Confession, and reading their pre-Communion prayers. More information on how to prepare for Holy Communion can be found here:

CONFESSION AND COMMUNION AT ST. VLADIMIR'S


Congratulations to all our health care workers on the feast of the patron saints of their ministry/profession!
