Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
1/8/22, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Many storms and hurricanes disturb the atmosphere and cause various kinds of destruction, but for all this, King David elicits the praise of God. And the actions of evil spirits, like the storms, disturb the hearts and souls of people on earth. What is there for us, who are infirm, to do? One of the nearest and surest means of help is raising our hands to the Lord God, like Moses in the desert, where the enemy forces of Amalik attacked him. Through the All-Highest God we will surmount the wall of temptations. God is with us. And we must not be overly afraid.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
31/7/22, 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 Corinthians 9:13-18 & Matthew 16:1-6
Tuesday: I Corinthians 10:5-12 & Matthew 16:6-12
Wednesday: I Corinthians 10:12-22 & Matthew 16:20-24
Thursday: I Corinthians 10:28-11:7 & Matthew 16:24-28
Friday: I Corinthians 11:8-22 & Matthew 17:10-18
Saturday: Romans 13:1-10 & Matthew 12:30-37

: I . 9:13-18 16:1-6
: I . 10:5-12 16:6-12
: I . 10:12-22 16:20-24
: I . 10:28-11:7 16:24-28
: I . 11:8-22 17:10-18
: . 13:1-10 12:30-37

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

Confession & Communion at St. Vladimirs + Rule to Prepare for Communion 
31/7/22, 06:00 AM
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!
