Великопосна Молитва св. Єфрема

 

Господи і Владико життя мого!  Духа лінивства, недбайливости, властолюб’я і пустомовства віджени від

мене.  (Доземний поклін)

 

Духа чистоти, покори, терпеливости й любови даруй мені, слузі твоєму. (Доземний поклін)

 

Так, Господи, Царю!  Дай мені бачити гріхи мої і не осуджувати брата мого, бо ти благословенний на віки вічні.   Амінь.   (Доземний поклін)

 

Great Lenten Prayer of St. Ephrem

 

O Lord and Master of my life! Dispel from me the spirit of discouragement and slothfulness, of ambition and vain talk!  (bow to the ground - poklin)

 

Instead, give me the spirit of prudence and humility, of patience and charity.   (bow to the ground - poklin)

 

Yes, my King and Lord, let me look at my own sins and refrain from judging my brother: For you are blessed unto ages of ages, amen.   (bow to the ground - poklin)

 

Якщо парафіяни мають оголошення просимо Вас передати на письмі перед початком

 Богослуженням.  Просимо не пердавати під час Служби.

 

If anyone has announcements to be made please give Father the written announcement prior to the

beginning of Liturgy.  Please do not give Father announcements during Liturgy

ANNOUNCEMENT:

 

What Does “Jubilee” Mean?

 

Jubilee years have a deep history in the Hebrew scriptures. According to Leviticus, slaves and prisoners were freed, debts forgiven, land and possessions returned to their rightful owners. Perhaps most important, during such a year the mercy of God would be manifested.

 

The word “jubilee” is based on the Hebrew “yoḇel.” The word described a “trumpet-blast of liberty" according to the Septuagint, the early translation from Hebrew into Greek.

 

Just as the ancient Hebrews forgave debts, so the Church today, in the words of Pope Francis, ”has an endless desire to show mercy.” 

The Holy Father states it clearly: “This is an opportune moment to change our lives.”

 

The custom of calling jubilee years dates back to the sixteenth century. Since then, there here have been only 26 ordinary Holy Year celebrations. So the current celebration is something extraordinary.

 

In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, the Holy Father calls on sinners to repent, reminding us that “God never tires of forgiving us; we are the ones who tire of seeking his mercy.”

 

Please say the following prayer: Dear Jesus, give me the wisdom and courage so that I may become an island of mercy in the midst of a sea of indifference.”

 

****************************

 

Christmas

 

The Old Testament book of Exodus warns us that no one can see God and live.

 

But during the celebration of the Nativity, we are mindful that in His mercy, God has, in fact, showed us His face. It is the innocent and inviting face of an infant. In Jesus, we see the face of God and we do not die, but find eternal life.

 

Francis of Assisi pointed out that, “Every day He humbles Himself just as He did when He came from His heavenly throne into the virgin's womb; every day He comes to us and lets us see Him in lowliness, when He descends from the bosom of the Father into the hands of the priest at the altar.”

 

In his book, “Jesus of Nazareth,” Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI tells us what the birth of Christ means. “He has brought God, and now we know His face. Now we know the path that we human beings have to take in this world. Jesus has brought God and with God the truth about where we are going and where we come from.”

 

Please say the following prayer: In your mercy, Eternal Father, you sent your son as the dawn from on high to shine on those who dwell in darkness. May his light shine on us and guide our way.
