JUNE 16: 4TH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST AND FATHER’S DAY

healing-of-the-centurions-servant  JUNE 25: CONFESSION – 08:30 AM, DIVINE LITURGY – 09:00 AM (LIVE-STREAMED); DIVINE LITURGY – 11:00 AM.

On June 16th we commemorate all our fathers (birth, adoptive, role-models, father figures). Father’s Day gives us all a chance to really think about what our own father or father figure means to us, or what being a “father” brings to our lives. May God grant them many years! Also, we commemorate all our deceased fathers. Eternal Memories!

This Sunday’s gospel reading for Divine Liturgy is The Gospel of Matthew 8:5-13, which addresses The Faith of the Centurion who asked Jesus, while he was in Capernaum, to heal his servant. Jesus marveled at the Centurion’s faith. Likewise, Jesus is calling each of us to step out of our comfort zone and live the kind of life that He is asking us to live. This is not an easy life. It was not easy for the Centurion in today’s Gospel to come forward and ask Jesus for help but he did it because he had such great faith that he knew that Jesus would grant his request. We are being asked to live an extraordinary life for Jesus. To live for someone other than ourselves. To place our life in His hands and trust in Him that all will be okay. Are you willing, today, to take that step that is necessary to live your faith and not just practice it?
