Christian in a one-day-sale society

Christian in a one-day-sale society

In Holy Orthodoxy, our festivals are never "only one day." Fr John Brian gives one explanation of our practices, reminding us it is better to be Christian that to make sure everyone else is Christian.

Fr John Brian uses a passage from the Gospel of Luke to remind us of Christ's presence in our lives and how to properly prepare for the visitation of the Holy Spirit.

This is another inspirational message of Orthodox Christian practical spirituality.

O Lord, help us to pace ourselves according to Thy kingdom to come and stay in the peace, love and awesomeness long after the festival has subsided.

Please pray for Fr. John Brian who continues to encourage us in the continuing development of Christian spirituality.

This sermon uses and refers to scripture readings appointed by the Syrian Malankara calendar and was given on Sunday, June 9, 2013 by Fr. John-Brian Paprock at Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Mission Chapel, Madison, Wisconsin.

Please pray for our mission and help us as you are able.
