AUG 12 & 13: 10TH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST

healdemonicboy AUG 12: DIVINE LITURGY – 4:00 PM (ST. N), CONFESSIONS – 5:15 PM;  AUG 13: DIVINE LITURGY – 10:30 AM.

Today’s gospel – Matthew 17:14-23, recounts Jesus’ Healing a Demon-Possessed Boy. The story of Jesus healing a demon-possessed boy teaches us a lot about having faith in Him. Having faith in Jesus means entrusting everything to Him and His power. Having faith is believing that when all else fails, Jesus won’t. Pause for a while and think of a time when things seemed so hopeless and you couldn’t do anything to change the situation. When the worst is far from over, we tend to doubt Jesus’ power to overturn the situation. Having faith means fixing our eyes on Jesus alone.
