Journey of Lent 2: Ready for the End of the World

Journey of Lent - Ready for the End of the World

This week, Fr John Brian acknowledges the tremendous tragedy of Japan's earthquake and speaks to those who are anxious about the signals of the "end times." He also speaks to the problems of dark and troubled times and likens them to the flower bulb that spend winter in the dark, yet breaks through the dirt to reach toward the light.

The Lenten Journey is a journey to the cross, but this week we may have lost sight of it under the rubble of the concerns of this world. Fr John Brian asks if you can tell if you are ready for the end. Are you? How can you tell?

This sermon lesson uses the readings and services appointed from the Malankara Syrian lectionary and was given on Sunday, March 13, 2011 by Fr. John Brian Paprock at Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Mission Chapel, Madison, Wisconsin.

"We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency may be of the power of God and not of us." 2 Corinthians 4:7.
