MAY 1: COMMEMORATION OF JEREMIAH PROPHET – DIVINE LITURGY

 MAY 1: DIVINE LITURGY (SCM) – 10:00 AM (PRIVATE).

Jeremiah, one of the four great Old Testament prophets, was called the “weeping prophet.” He authored the Book of Jeremiah, the Books of Kings and the Book of Lamentations with the aide of his scribe and disciple, Baruch ben Neriah.  The book of Jeremiah goes into detail about his life and does so more than any other prophet. In the Gospel of Matthew it is said that the betrayal of Judas was foretold by the Prophet Jeremiah, “And they took thirty pieces of silver, the price of him on whom the sons of Israel had set a price, and they gave them for the potter’s field, as the Lord directed me” (Mt. 27:9-10).
