love for all - the purpose of fasting
The disparity of the dates of Easter between the two calendars is more than a month in 2013 (this year). But there is a shared time of fasting nonetheless.
Fr. John Brian's sermon uses Romans Chapter 13 and 14 to bring into focus the true understanding of the fast and the purpose of our struggle with purity as well as the work of goodness. In this, we can find the fullness of love.
This sermon uses and refers to scripture readings appointed by the Syrian Malankara calendar and was given on Sunday, March 17, 2013 by Fr. John-Brian Paprock at Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Mission Chapel, Madison, Wisconsin.
Please pray for Fr. John Brian and for our mission and help us as you are able.
