MAY 6 & 7: SUNDAY OF THE PARALYTIC MAN (4TH PASCHAL SUNDAY) & CELEBRATION POTLUCK FOR ST. S & M FEAST DAY

paralytic MAY 6: CONFESSIONS – 2:00-2:45 PM, GREAT  VESPERS – 3:00 PM; MAY 7: MATINS: 7:00 AM, DIVINE LITURGY – 10:30 AM, CELEBRATION POTLUCK FOR ST. S & M FEAST DAY – 12:00 PM, PPC MEETING – 12:30 PM.

The Gospel Reading is from John 5: 1-15 and from which this day commemorates the miracle of Christ healing a man who had been paralyzed for thirty-eight years. The readings focus on God’s power to raise up those who are unable to walk. Faced with illness and other difficulties, we often rush to intercessory prayer, urging others to join us in our intention. We should always first unite ourselves prayerfully to the Father long enough to enter into his love and peacefully come to better understand his will and what is for the greater good.
