Weekly Sunday Bulletin – All Saints Sunday

Picture1June 7, 2015

When God brings His hidden saints to light, it is in   order that some may emulate them and others be without excuse. Those who wish to remain amid distractions as well as those who live a worthy life in communities, in mountains and in caverns (Heb.11:38) are saved, and God bestows on them great blessings solely because they have faith in Him.

Sunday of the MyrrhbearersApril 26, 2015

When You descended to death, O Immortal Life, then, the light of Your divinity destroyed Hades. When You raised the dead from the depths of darkness, all the   heavenly powers cried out, “Glory to You our Christ, the   Giver of Life.” Lowering Your pure body from the Cross, Joseph wrapped it in clean muslin with fragrant spices and laid it in a new tomb. Standing by the tomb the angel said to the Myrrh-bearing women:

“Myrrh is for the dead; but Christ has shown Himself stranger to death.”
