Removing Masks

Removing Masks

On the day after Halloween in America, the masks and costumes are removed, this sermon uses the secular and popular as metaphor for a deeply Christian message.

"Lay aside all malice and all guile and hypocrisies and envies and evil accusations." 1 Peter 2:1

"Far be it from you, my Lord, that this should happen to you. But Jesus turned and said to Peter, Get behind me, Satan... for you are not thinking of the things of God, but of men." Matthew 16:22-23

The sermon uses the scripture readings from the Malankara lectionary.

This sermon given on Sunday, November 1, 2009 by Fr John Brian Paprock at Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Mission Chapel, Madison, Wisconsin.
