MESSAGE FROM FR. MARK

April 8, 2020 

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
To the left are the latest directives from our Metropolitan Tikhon regarding the services of Holy Week and Pascha.  As you will read, the Metropolitan put a lot of prayer and thought into his directives.  Basically, the Churches of the diocese will remain closed for the rest of April.  Metropolitan Tikhon reminds us that we must, out of Christian love, do our part to control the spread of illness.  This is a sacrifice of love that we are called upon to make for the sake of all.
I am sorry we will not be able to serve the Holy Week and Paschal services together this year.  I know it is a heart-felt loss for you also.  Please know that we continue to be together in prayer in oneness with our Lord.  Hopefully it will not be long before we can resume our parish life.
Asking God’s blessing for each of you,
Fr. Mark

 

 

A PRAYER FOR OUR TIME

 

 

 

 

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.   O God Almighty, Lord of heaven and earth, and of all creation visible and invisible, in your ineffable goodness, look down upon us, your people gathered in your Holy Name.  Be our helper and defender in this day of affliction. You know our weakness.  You hear our cry in repentance and contrition of heart.  O Lord, who loves humankind, deliver us from the impending threat of the Corona Virus. Send your angel to watch over us and protect us. Grant health and recovery to those suffering from the virus. Guide the hands of physicians, and preserve those who are healthy.  Enable us to continue to serve our suffering brothers and sisters in peace, that together we may glorify your most honorable and majestic name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages.

Amen.

 

St. Jacob Netsvetov   1802 – 1864

St. Mary of Egypt

 

5 April

 

The image of God was truly preserved in you, mother, / for you took up the Cross and followed Christ. / By so doing, you taught us to disregard the flesh, for it passes away, / but to care instead for the soul, since it is immortal. / Therefore your spirit, holy mother Mary, Rejoices with the angels!
