August 2019 Monthly Message from Fr. Antony

In this time when the Faith is so often misrepresented by hate-filled purveyors of a Christianity utterly foreign to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, a religion tied to the craving for power and wealth, we who love Christ are called to a different way of life.   Read more »

Spiritual Quotes

A Prayer for Today
St. Isaac the Syrian (613-700 CE)

Lord Jesus Christ, King of kings,
You have power over life and death.
You know even things
that are uncertain and obscure,
and our very thoughts and feelings
are not hidden from you.
Cleanse me from my secret faults,
for I have done wrong and you saw it.
You know how weak I am,
both in soul and body.
Give me strength, O Lord, in my frailty
and sustain me in my sufferings.
Grant me a prudent judgment, dear Lord,
and let me always be mindful of Your blessings.
Let me retain until the end, Your grace that
has protected me until now. Amen

Non-Resistance

August 07, 2019 - by Fr. Antony Hughes
What about humility, long-suffering, and compassion in the face of this call to aggressiveness? Remember that when Jesus stood before Pilate falsely accused he did not speak a word in his own defense. Think of the Passion-Bearers Sts. Boris and Gleb who took the Lord’s call to non-resistance all the way to martyrdom. Read more »
 

We are Light, the World is Light

July 14, 2019 - by Fr. Antony Hughes
Today we hear more about light and Jesus puts it directly and deliberately. The truth is, we are as he is, the light of the world. The darkness in us is illusion. It does not define us, nor can it, for we are created by God as light and as St. John puts it, 'the darkness cannot overcome it.' While this is a theological and anthropological statement, modern science has, once again, born witness to this truth in part. Read more »
