And they say this, even in light of the fact that Christ is &ldquo;preaching the gospel of the Kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.&rdquo; Now, they obviously can&rsquo;t find fault with the actions that He is taking, or their results- curing the blind, healing the sick, and the rest, so what is it, exactly, about Jesus that so makes them want to attack Him? Don&rsquo;t they get it? How can they not see Him for Who He is? How can they possibly be so far off the mark? How can these Pharisees possibly be so&hellip;evil?</p></div> Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA http://www.uocofusa.org/news_150714_1.html All Saints of Ukraine http://www.uocofusa.org/news_120614_1.html Mon, 15 Jun 2015 00:00:00 -0400 <div><img border="0" hspace="5" vspace="0" align="left" src="http://www.uocofusa.org/display_image.php?ext=jpg&relativeimage=images/icons/All-Saints-of-Pechersk-small.jpg&archive=0&final_h=114&final_w=90&percent=100"><div style="text-align: justify;">One day a Sunday school class was discussing the topics of sainthood and saints. The children were riveted to the teacher&rsquo;s presentation, as they listened to the wondrous miracles and acts of personal sacrifice which were associated with the saints. As the presentation ended, it was time for the children to ask questions. All but one child asked a question and received their answer from the teacher.</div></div> Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA http://www.uocofusa.org/news_120614_1.html Шукайте Царства Небесного http://www.uocofusa.org/news_110704_6.html Fri, 19 Jun 2015 00:00:00 -0400 <div><img border="0" hspace="5" vspace="0" align="left" src="http://www.uocofusa.org/display_image.php?ext=gif&relativeimage=images/icons/all-saints-icon.gif&archive=0&final_h=127&final_w=90&percent=100"><p lang="uk-UA" style="text-indent: 0.5in; margin-bottom: 0in;" align="justify"><span style="font-size: small;">Епіцентром сьогоднішньої Євангелії є людська проникливість базована на розум. Євангелія починається словами: <em>&ldquo;Око то світильник для тіла&rdquo;</em>. Тут не йдеться про наше фізичне око, а про духовне око, яке називається <em>&ldquo;ноус&rdquo;</em> (з грецької мови) або мудрість душі. Іоан Дамаскин говорить, що &ldquo;ноус&rdquo; не є предмет який існує окремо від душі, тому що є найсвітла/чистіша частина душі. Ця свята мудрість народжує важливий елемент людського існування, а саме відповідальність. Іншими словами відповідальність є результат здорової душі. Що це означає?</span></p></div> Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA http://www.uocofusa.org/news_110704_6.html
