March 1, 2014 Two Things to Remember During Great Lent Print E-mail
We begin another time of fasting to prepare us for the Holy Pascha of our Lord. The guidelines of fasting are simple; we are to eat no meat or dairy products from the beginning of Great Lent on March 3rd until Great and Holy Pascha. There are other rules to the fast such as no alcohol, oil, and fish with backbone. But to be honest with you refraining from meat and dairy products is a challenge enough for us in this culture we live in today. Finally for those who are ill and have certain medical conditions that require that you not fast as strictly, then do what the doctor says. The purpose of fasting is not to make you sick and endanger your health. Most of you know this, so there is no need to dwell on the rules. However there are two things we do need to focus on as we fast that will make a difference as to whether this is a fruitful fast for us.

May 2, 2013 Some Thoughts on Pascha Print E-mail

What the Death and Resurrection of Christ Means to Me
Why I Believe in the Pascha of Our Lord


The mystery of Pascha has been, is, and will continue to be for me the awareness of a doorway into a reality of life that has no end; a new heavenly earth; a new creation.  Despite my struggles with pride and self-will; the baptismal mystery of dying to a human nature that has been corrupted by sin resulting in death, and being raised into a maturing new person, a real human being in Christ Jesus; tells me that all things are possible with God. Provided we strive to abide in the baptismal mystery of Pascha and seek its ongoing renewal in the Eucharistic life in the Church. When I am able to face those things lacking in me and continue the journey of repenting of them and turning to our Lord; I am convinced that our Lord Jesus does not abandon us. He continues His work to mold our life into one of love, peace, joy, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, self-control; and most importantly to continually draw us closer to His Father; through Himself (as the only mediator between God and Man), in the power of the Holy Spirit. It is only through this communion that we become truly human.

Understanding the Holy Baptism Print E-mail
I spent several months discussing the importance of fasting and its relationship to remembering our Lord in our preparation to receive Communion. I now want to focus on another leg of the chair that constitutes the process of preparing to receive the Holy Eucharist on Sundays. Namely how does the sacrament of Confession help us to remember our Lord Jesus Christ? This will take several months for me to answer via the newsletter as I want to build on a solid foundation; I first need to talk about the importance and meaning of Baptism. Confession is nothing more than an extension of Baptism. We will never properly understand Confession if we don't understand Baptism as the Sacrament of Repentance.

The Beginnngs of the Sacrament of Confession Print E-mail

In last month's newsletter, I mentioned that in the early church there was no sacrament of Confession as it is understood and practiced today. Holy Baptism was seen as the sacrament of repentance. By Baptism and Chrismation the one enslaved to sin and death was freed from this fallen reality and was empowered to live the Christian life.
