While we approach for Holy Communion, the people sing this hymn: &ldquo;Receive the Body of Christ, taste the Fountain of Immortality.&rdquo;&nbsp; The priest says to the person receiving the Holy Gifts: &ldquo;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.&rdquo; <br /></span></p> Ss.

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.</p></div> Ss.

It is one of the greatest, most joyful and wondrous events in the history of the world. The angel said to the shepherds, &ldquo;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.&rdquo; 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&rdquo; (Luke 2:10-20).</p></div> Ss.

This feast, which is also sometimes called the&nbsp;<strong>Assumption</strong>, commemorates the death, resurrection and glorification of Christ&rsquo;s mother. It proclaims that Mary has been &ldquo;assumed&rdquo; by God into the heavenly kingdom of Christ in the fullness of her spiritual and bodily existence.</p> <p>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 &ldquo;voluntarily&rdquo; as her Son, but by the necessity of her mortal human nature which is indivisibly bound up with the corruption of this world.</p> <p>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&nbsp;<strong>Mother of Life</strong>&nbsp;and participates already in the eternal life of paradise which is prepared and promised to all who &ldquo;<strong>hear the word of God and keep it.</strong>&rdquo; (<em>Luke 11:27-28</em>)</p> <p>You can read the full description at <a href="http://oca.org/orthodoxy/the-orthodox-faith/worship/the-church-year/dormition-of-the-theotokos">oca.org</a></p></div> Ss.

The meaning of both is in love. The Last Supper is the ultimate revelation of God&rsquo;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. &ldquo;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...&rdquo; (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.</p> <p><a href="http://oca.org/saints/lives/2014/04/17/24-great-and-holy-thursday">More</a> can be read at oca.org</p></div> Ss.

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!</div> Ss.

We come before Thee in humility and ask that Thy peace which surpasses all understanding will descend upon all people around the world, especially those currently in conflict and war. Increase understanding and forgiveness among nations. Awaken the longing for a peaceful life in all those who are filled with hatred for their neighbor. &nbsp;Extinguish every dispute and banish all temptations and disagreements. Grant wisdom to civil authorities. Send Thy Guardian Angels to safeguard both civilians and the military; as well as cities and nations. &nbsp;Free those held captive, protect those in danger, and comfort those who are suffering and displaced. &nbsp;Implant in all of us reverence for Thee, and confirm us in love for one another. &nbsp;Make us worthy to celebrate the Feast of Thy Holy Nativity and to join with the angels in singing: "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will towards men." &nbsp;For Thou art the King of Peace and the Saviour of our souls and to Thee do we send up glory, together with Thy Father Who is from everlasting and Thy Most Holy Good and Life-Creating Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages.
