How Love Dwells Within

How Love Dwells Within
Preparing for Holy Nativity
Mary Prophecy
Luke Chapter 1

Mary said, "He has filled the hungry with good things and has dismissed the rich, empty."

I John 3: "...how can the love of God dwell within him?"

The direct discussion of the problems of the rich and wealth as well as the poor and envy of wealth are discussed as a crucial part of Christian spiritual development in this commerce oriented materialistic time of year.

Fr. John Brian uses writings of St. John Chrysostom and 1 John chapter 3 to enhance gospel lessons from Luke.

This sermon uses and refers to scripture readings appointed by the Syrian Malankara calendar and was given on Sunday, December 2, 2012 by Fr. John-Brian Paprock at Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Mission
Chapel, Madison, Wisconsin.

Please pray for us and help us.
