Guria, Shamuna & Habib, Martyrs & Confessors of Edessa

Of these Martyrs of the city of Edessa in Syria, Guria and Shamuna contested in 288; after many tortures, they were cast into prison, then beheaded. Saint Habib, a deacon, contested in 316, and was burned alive; he was buried with Saints Guria and Shamuna. The three have one common feast. On account of a miracle they worked, they are invoked for help in marital difficulties. A Goth had come with the Roman army to Edessa and was quartered in the house of a pious widow, Sophia. The Goth asked Sophia for the hand of her daughter, Euphemia; after resisting for a long time, Sophia agreed. When it was time for the army to return home, Sophia made the Goth vow by the power in the holy Martyrs Shamuna, Guria, and Habib, to keep Euphemia as the apple of his eye. However, the man revealed to Euphemia that he already had a wife. Euphemia was compelled to serve the Goths wife, who dealt with her mercilessly. After extreme sufferings, including being sealed alive in a tomb and left there to die, Euphemia was miraculously conveyed to Edessa, to the shrine of the holy Martyrs whose surety they had taken, and was reunited with her mother through their holy prayers.

Weekly Sunday Bulletin – St. Mary of Egypt

St. Mary of EgyptMarch 29, 2015

O Christ, the power of your Cross has worked wonders for Mary of Egypt; she had been a harlot and has now become an example and ideal of ascetic life. Casting off the weakness of nature, she has bravely fought Satan. Now, as a saint in heaven, she has obtained the prize of victory and intercedes for our souls. Amen.

GOYA Saturday of Lazarus Retreat

1:00pm-3:00pm on Saturday April 4th, 2015

“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And
whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe?” – John 11:25-26
This years GOYA Saturday of Lazarus Retreat will be one of the most interactive! We will be playing
a life-size version of the Game of Life, or rather the Orthodox Game of Life. As we know: We are
born. We live. We die. But within our lives, we have important decisions to make. Do we just want to
live to die? Or do we want to live to never die? That decision is up to us!

Sunday of St. John ClimacusMarch 22, 2015

O John our father, saint of God, you were revealed as a citizen of the desert, as an angel in a body and a worker of miracles. Through fasting, prayer and vigils you have received heavenly gifts of grace, and have healed the sick and the souls of those who turn to you with faith. Glory be to Him who gave you strength; glory to Him who crowned you; glory be to Him who through you grants to all men healing.

Publican and  PhariseeFebruary 1, 2015

Publican and the Pharisee

Let us flee from the boasting of the Pharisee and learn through our own sighs of sorrow the humility of the Publican. Let us cry out to the Savior, “Have mercy on us, for through You alone are we reconciled.”

The Lenten spring has come!

the light of repentance;

Let us, brothers, cleanse ourselves from all evil,

crying out to the Giver of Light:

Glory to Thee, O Lover of man.
