This icon is venerated in the first three days of Holy Week- it’s called the bridegroom
Raising of Lazarus- happy feast day!
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
Do not leave the will of God so you can fulfill the will of the people.
Venerable Anthony the Great
Our youth director is visiting a Serbian women’s Monastery in America. He is going to interview some nuns. What questions would you like him to ask. The questions must be asked by tomorrow morning.
Keep calm and say Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on me a sinner!
"How beautiful, then, the marriage of two Christians, two who are one in hope, one in desire, one in the way of life they follow, one in the religion they practice. They are as brother and sister, both servants of the same Master. Nothing divides them, either in flesh or in spirit. They are, in very truth, two in one flesh; and where there is but one flesh there is also but one spirit. They pray together, they worship together, they fast together; instructing one another, encouraging one another, strengthening one another. Side by side they visit God’s church and partake of God’s Banquet; side by side they face difficulties and persecution, share their consolations. Psalms and hymns they sing to one another, striving to see which one of them will chant more beautifully the praises of their Lord. Hearing and seeing this, Christ rejoices. To such as these He gives His peace. Where there are two together, there also He is present; and where He is, there evil is not." #wedding #orthodox #christian #twobecome one
