Memory of a Spiritual Mother
Fr John Brian gave a eulogy sermon for one of his spiritual guide - Irene Spanolios - memory eternal - passed to eternal life on January 15, 2011. Fr John Brian called her a spiritual mother in this short special memorial sermon. She was born on the Greek island of Chios and yet she committed most of her life to developing an English speaking Orthodox Christian church. She started her journey by joining a small American mission of the Russian Synod in New York City.
This sermon uses and refers to scripture readings appointed by the Syrian Malankara calendar and was given on Sunday, January 15, 2012 by Fr. John-Brian Paprock at Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Mission Chapel, Madison, Wisconsin.
"Called to Divine Nature" is the theme of an open and free mini-retreat in Madison, January 21, 2012 from 9am - 12 noon, hosted by Holy Transfiguration Mission. There is still time to pre-registration by email or voicemail.
