The Transfiguration of Our Lord
His face shone like the sun, and His garments became white as snow. A bright cloud overshadowed them and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my Beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to Him." When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces with awe. But Jesus came and touched them saying, "rise, and have no fear." (Matthew 17)

  Pastoral Message  

Dear Friends,

As we begin the Lenten season we do well to ask ourselves what Lent should mean to us, what effect it should have in our lives, both individually and as a church community. Much of what we hope to achieve is summed up in the words of Ephrem's prayer.

How our community would change if we refused to judge one another and concentrated on recognizing and overcoming our own sins. Imagine what would happen in our lives and the life of our mission if this Lenten season were characterized by an all-out effort to overcome sloth, despair, lust, the love of power and idle talk. Just think of what would happen if we actively showed chastity, humility, patience and love to everyone around us.

This is certainly asking a lot. Yet it is our prayer. May God grant each one of us peace and strength as we seek to learn and live out the petitions of this prayer!

Fr. Edward

The Prayer of St. Ephrem

O Lord and Master of my life! Take from me the spirit of sloth, despair, lust, and love of power and idle talk. But give rather the spirit of chastity, humility, patience and love to Thy Servant. Yea, O Lord and King! Grant me to see my own transgressions and not to judge my brother, for blessed art Thou, unto ages of ages.
