After the Ascension of the Lord, the Mother of God remained in the care of the Apostle John the Theologian, and during his journeys She lived at the home of his parents, near the Mount of Olives. She was a source of consolation and edification both for the Apostles and for all the believers.

The Raising of Lazarus (Lazarus Saturday) - 04/24/21

Last updated: 2021-04-24 13:45:01

....In a carefully detailed narrative the Gospel relates how Christ, six days before His own death, and with particular mindfulness of the people “standing by, that they may believe that thou didst send me” (John 11:42), went to His dead friend Lazarus at Bethany outside of Jerusalem. He was aware of the approaching death of Lazarus but deliberately delayed His coming, saying to His disciples at the news of His friend’s death: “For your sake I am glad that I was not there, so that you may believe” (John 11:14).

The Nativity of our Lord God & Savior Jesus Christ - 12/25/20
Category: Recent Events
Last updated: 2020-12-26 13:06:52

Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world, was born of the Most Holy Virgin Mary in the city of Bethlehem during the reign of the emperor Augustus (Octavian). Caesar Augustus decreed that a universal census be made throughout his Empire, which then also included Palestinian Israel. The Jews were accustomed to be counted in the city from where their family came. The Most Holy Virgin and the Righteous Joseph, since they were descended from the house and lineage of King David, had to go to Bethlehem to be counted and taxed.

Saint Irene Chrysovolantou and Blessing of Apples - 07/27/20
Category: Recent Events
Last updated: 2020-08-09 13:23:06

Although Saint Irene performed many miracles during her life, let us mention only one. On great Feasts it was her habit to keep vigil in the monastery courtyard under the starry skies. Once, a nun who was unable to sleep left her cell and went into the courtyard. There she saw Abbess Irene levitating a few feet above the ground, completely absorbed in prayer. The astonished nun also noticed that two cypress trees had bowed their heads to the ground, as if in homage. When she finished praying, Irene blessed the trees and they returned to their upright position.

Paschal Matins - 05/28/20
Category: Recent Events
Last updated: 2020-05-28 17:28:19

On Wednesday of the sixth week of Pascha, we celebrate the Leavetaking of the Feast. While most Feasts have their Leavetaking on the eighth day, Pascha, the Feast of Feasts, has its Leavetaking on the thirty-ninth day. The fortieth day is the Feast of the Lord’s Ascension, which marks the end of the Lord’s physical presence on earth. He does not abandon us, however. He has promised to be with us always, even until the end of the age (MT 20:28). As we sing in the Kontakion for Ascension, “Thou didst ascend in glory, O Christ our God, not being parted from those who love Thee, but remaining with them and crying: I am with you and no one will be against you.” There is a similar thought expressed in the Troparion for the Dormition: “In falling asleep, you did not forsake the world, O Theotokos.”

"On the Necessity of Guarding our Thoughts - the First Step in Spiritual Action and of Spiritual Defense."  The Holy Saints teach us that our contribution to our salvation is to a large extent dependent upon the thoughts we hold to.  The modern day Elder, St. Paisios of Athos (+1994) remarks that "the entire spiritual life depends on our thoughts."  There are all kinds of thoughts, simple and composite; good and bad, from God and from the demons, as well as from our own conjuring.  We will examine the positive and negative charcter of thoughts and what the Fathers recommend us to rightly think.

Now the comforting Spirit has been poured out on all flesh, beginning with the choir of the apostles.  He has spread His grace, communicating it to all the faithful, He gives proof of His mighty descent by distributing the fiery tongues to the disciples for the praise and glory of God.  So now that our hearts have been spiritually enlightened, strengthened in faith by the Holy Spirit, let us pray that our souls may be saved!

Last updated: 2017-07-01 21:25:35

The receiving of the Holy Gifts at a Sunday Divine Liturgy at Ss. Peter & Paul Church.  When we partake of the Holy Gifts we are united to them and become more grafted onto the Mystical Body of Christ, which is His Church. While we approach for Holy Communion, the people sing this hymn: “Receive the Body of Christ, taste the Fountain of Immortality.”  The priest says to the person receiving the Holy Gifts: “The Precious Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ is given unto the servant of God (name) for the remission of sins and to life everlasting.”

Pre-Sanctified with Archbishop Michael - 04/20/16
Category: Recent Events
Last updated: 2017-07-01 21:25:35

The Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts is an evening service. It is the solemn lenten Vespers with the administration of Holy Communion added to it. There is no consecration of the eucharistic gifts at the presanctified liturgy. Holy Communion is given from the eucharistic gifts sanctified on the previous Sunday at the celebration of the Divine Liturgy, unless, of course, the feast of the Annunciation should intervene; hence its name of “presanctified.”

Pentecost with Kneeling Vesper - 05/31/15
Category: Recent Events
Last updated: 2017-07-01 21:25:35

In the Church’s annual liturgical cycle, Pentecost is “the last and great day.” It is the celebration by the Church of the coming of the Holy Spirit as the end—the achievement and fulfillment—of the entire history of salvation. For the same reason, however, it is also the celebration of the beginning: it is the “birthday” of the Church as the presence among us of the Holy Spirit, of the new life in Christ, of grace, knowledge, adoption to God and holiness.

On Bright Monday the Church commemorates the Sweet-Kissing (Glykophilousa) Icon of the Most Holy Theotokos.  Like the Iveron Icon (March 31), the Sweet-Kissing Icon was also saved from the iconoclasts by a pious woman in the ninth century. It also traveled miraculously upon the sea, arriving at Mt. Athos, the “Garden of the Theotokos,” where it was honored by the monks.

Palm Sunday: The Feast Of The Entrance Of Our Lord Jesus Christ Into Jerusalem - On the Sunday before the Feast of Great and Holy Pascha and at the beginning of Holy Week, the Orthodox Church celebrates one of its most joyous feasts of the year. Palm Sunday is the commemoration of the Entrance of our Lord into Jerusalem following His glorious miracle of raising Lazarus from the dead. Having anticipated His arrival and having heard of the miracle, the people when out to meet the Lord and welcomed Him with displays of honor and shouts of praise. On this day, we receive and worship Christ in this same manner, acknowledging Him as our King and Lord.

Holy Unction-Unction of the Sick

Christ came to the world to “bear the infirmities” of men. One of the signs of his divine messiahship was to heal the sick. The power of healing remains in the Church since Christ himself remains in the Church through the Holy Spirit.  The sacrament of the unction of the sick is the Church’s specific prayer for healing. If the faith of the believers is strong enough, and if it is the will of God, there is every reason to believe that the Lord can heal those who are diseased.  http://oca.org/orthodoxy/the-orthodox-faith/worship/the-sacraments/holy-unction

Veneration of the Cross (also Council Induction) - 03/15/15
Category: Recent Events
Last updated: 2017-07-01 21:25:35

The Third Sunday of Lent is that of the Veneration of the Cross. The cross stands in the midst of the church in the middle of the lenten season not merely to remind men of Christ’s redemption and to keep before them the goal of their efforts, but also to be venerated as that reality by which man must live to be saved. “He who does not take up his cross and follow me is not worthy of me” (Mt.10:38). For in the Cross of Christ Crucified lies both “the power of God and the wisdom of God” for those being saved (1 Cor.1:24).

Last updated: 2017-07-01 21:25:35

On Sunday evening, March 1, 2015 — the first Sunday of Great Lent — Orthodox Christians will gather in churches around the world to commemorate the restoration of icons to their proper use in the Church on March 11, 843 AD, thereby ending the 100-plus year iconoclast controversy.  The spiritual theme of the day is first of all the victory of the True Faith.  “This is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith” [1 John 5:4].  Secondly, the icons of the saints bear witness that man, “created in the image and likeness of God” [Genesis 1:26], becomes holy and godlike through the purification of himself as God’s living image.

Theophany is the Feast which reveals the Most Holy Trinity to the world through the Baptism of the Lord (Mt.3:13-17; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 3:21-22). God the Father spoke from Heaven about the Son, the Son was baptized by the St John the Forerunner, and the Holy Spirit descended upon the Son in the form of a dove. From ancient times this Feast was called the Day of Illumination and the Feast of Lights, since God is Light and has appeared to illumine “those who sat in darkness,” and “in the region of the shadow of death” (Mt.4:16), and to save the fallen race of mankind by grace.

St Basil Bread - 12/31/14
Category: Recent Events
Last updated: 2017-07-01 21:25:35

For centuries upon centuries, parents, grandparents and godparents have related the following to Orthodox children about St. Basil and the Vasilopita. One year, during a time of terrible famine, the emperor levied a sinfully excessive tax upon the people of Caesarea. The tax was such a heavy burden upon the already impoverished people that to avoid debtors' prison each family had to relinquish its few remaining coins and pieces of jewelry, including precious family heirlooms. Learning of this injustice upon his flock, St. Basil the Great, the archbishop of Caesarea, took up his bishop's staff and the book of the holy Gospels and came to his people's defense by fearlessly calling the emperor to repentance. By God's grace, the emperor did repent! He canceled the tax and instructed his tax collectors to turn over to St. Basil all of the chests containing the coins and jewelry which had been paid as taxes by the people of Caesarea. But now St. Basil was faced with the daunting and impossible task of returning these thousands of coins and pieces of jewelry to their rightful owners. After praying for a long time before the icons of our Master Christ and His All-Holy Mother, St. Basil had all the treasures baked into one huge pita. He then called all the townspeople to prayer at the cathedral, and, after Divine Liturgy, he blessed and cut the pita, giving a piece to each person. Miraculously, each owner received in his piece of Vasilopita his own valuables. They all joyfully returned home, giving thanks to God who had delivered them from abject poverty and to their good and holy bishop St. Basil the Great! In remembrance of that miracle wrought by God as a result of St. Basil's love and defense of his people, Orthodox Christians have observed the tradition of the Vasilopita each year on January 1st-- the date on which St. Basil reposed in the Lord in the year 379.

The Nativity of Christ has long been counted as one of the Twelve Great Feasts. It is one of the greatest, most joyful and wondrous events in the history of the world. The angel said to the shepherds, “Behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, Who is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you: you shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. Then suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly hosts, glorifying God and saying: Glory to God in the Highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” Those who heard these things were astonished at what the shepherds told them concerning the Child. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen” (Luke 2:10-20).

Last updated: 2017-07-01 21:25:35

The feast of the Dormition or Falling-asleep of the Theotokos is celebrated on the fifteenth of August, preceded by a two-week fast. This feast, which is also sometimes called the Assumption, commemorates the death, resurrection and glorification of Christ’s mother. It proclaims that Mary has been “assumed” by God into the heavenly kingdom of Christ in the fullness of her spiritual and bodily existence.

As with the nativity of the Virgin and the feast of her entrance to the temple, there are no biblical or historical sources for this feast. The Tradition of the Church is that Mary died as all people die, not “voluntarily” as her Son, but by the necessity of her mortal human nature which is indivisibly bound up with the corruption of this world.

The Orthodox Church teaches that Mary is without personal sins. In the Gospel of the feast, however, in the liturgical services and in the Dormition icon, the Church proclaims as well that Mary truly needed to be saved by Christ as all human persons are saved from the trials, sufferings and death of this world; and that having truly died, she was raised up by her Son as the Mother of Life and participates already in the eternal life of paradise which is prepared and promised to all who “hear the word of God and keep it.” (Luke 11:27-28)

Pictures from Holy Thursday Vespers and Divine Liturgy - 04/17/14
Category: Recent Events
Last updated: 2017-07-01 21:25:35

Two events shape the liturgy of Great and Holy Thursday: the Last Supper of Christ with His disciples, and the betrayal of Judas. The meaning of both is in love. The Last Supper is the ultimate revelation of God’s redeeming love for man, of love as the very essence of salvation. And the betrayal of Judas reveals that sin, death and self-destruction are also due to love, but to deviated and distorted love, love directed at that which does not deserve love. Here is the mystery of this unique day, and its liturgy, where light and darkness, joy and sorrow are so strangely mixed, challenges us with the choice on which depends the eternal destiny of each one of us. “Now before the feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that His hour was come... having loved His own which were in the world, He loved them unto the end...” (John 13:1). To understand the meaning of the Last Supper we must see it as the very end of the great movement of Divine Love which began with the creation of the world and is now to be consummated in the death and resurrection of Christ.

MANVILLE: Children lead effort in caring
They organize food, monetary donations for Caritas

   Children from three Manville churches and the Catholic elementary school led efforts to collect food and gift cards for families assisted through the Caritas organization, which is headed by borough resident Barbara Demchak through Christ the Redeemer Parish. 

   Caritas is the Latin word for "caring and sharing" and the children worked together to collect 32 large deliveries of food, Easter treats and more than $1,300 in grocery gift cards to be distributed this week through Caritas.

After the Divine Liturgy, a "blessing of things mobile" took place in the parking lot. Autos, bikes, baby strollers, and boogie boards were also blessed. It is normal for us to bless things that we use - for transportation and even recreation. The blessing is for their safe usage as well as a reminder that whatever we do, wherever we are at, be it work or play, we should do the will of the Lord and remember His Holy Name.

Category: Recent Events
Last updated: 2017-07-01 21:25:35

On September 18th, our parish sponsored a bus trip for a one day pilgrimage to the Monastery of St. Tikhon, in South Canaan, Pa.  The monastery is over a hundred years old and six of the twelve cannonized saints of America have had an association with the monastery. We were blessed to visit this holy monastery and venerate the many relics of the saints.  The day was spent in prayer, fellowship, visits to the bookstore and museum, the cemetery, and the various shrines on the grounds. We are appreciative that Bishop Tikhon broke bread with us at the luncheon and spoke with us about the nature of the monastic life.  The Abbot, St. Sergius, also gave us a warm welcome and Monk Nicodemus provided us with a tour of the Monastery and conversed with us about spiritual persons associated with the history of the monastery.  We returned home with a sense of spiritual joy and strength.  Glory to God!
