The Great Fast: While fasting from food is important, many things in our ever challenging world can become damaging to the soul.  Whatever we deem to be more important than our relationship with the Triune God puts our salvation at risk.  Some examples might be:  money, therefore we should tithe properly or give alms; cell phones, TV, computers, video games, sports etc. might be another competitor from which we might fast.  We should make a greater effort to attend and participate in the Friday evening Presanctified Liturgies and to spend more time in prayer, so that our relationship with God might be healed or improved.   “O my soul, devote yourself to repentance and unite yourself to Christ in mind.  Cry out and groan, Pardon my terrible deeds that I may receive from you, who alone are good, forgiveness and eternal life.”  May you have a great and joyful fast!

 

February Birthdays: Max Beaver, Cyndi Huff, Nicholas Kupec, and Stephanie Suvak. God grant them many years!
