Багатий юнак - 08/29/14

Сьогоднішнє Євангельське читання має справу з одним з найбільш чутливих, делікатних і в той самий час, з одним з найважливіших питань пов'язаних з духовним життям кожної віручої людини. Це питання - є питанням нашого ставлення до земних багатств. Правильне розуміння та належне відношення до земних багатств має настільки важливе духовне значення, що одна шоста всіх Христових повчань, та третина всіх Його притч пов'язана з цим питанням.


Reflection on Dormition of the Most Holy Theotokos - 08/28/14

Why the Holy Church gives such unprecedented attention to the Dormition of the Most Holy Theotokos and ever-virgin Mary? But it is not only Dormition church always glorifying her in a way as no other righteous person or saint. Without any doubt it is because she is Mother of our God and Savior Jesus Christ. This is why throughout the life of the Theotokos we are witnessing constant heavenly presence; her earthly life was directed to heavenly life. As a child she went to the temple, heaven on earth, she also was visited by Angel. Her knowledge of God and His Kingdom made it possible for her to accept words of an Angel and act according to God’s will. And as she was carrying in her womb Son of God she herself became part of Heaven and Heavenly Kingdom. And from that time on all her thoughts and all her existence was surrounded only by Heavenly presence. She knew her Son only as she could, and no one else. It was given to her to be Living Altar of the Son of God.
