WeeCare Outreach Collection

Apostleship of Prayer would like to extend a sincere “Thank You” to all the parishioners who so generously donated to the “Wee Care” Collection for Golisano Children's hospital. Through your generosity we were able to collect three boxes of toys, clothing and special items for the children in the care of the hospital and their families. Thank you and may God Bless all of you for your generosity! May God Grant them Many Years! Mnohaia Lita!

The Feast of the Entrance of the Mother of God into the Temple

       The feast of the Entrance of the Mother of God Into the Temple praises and glorifies God for His plan of salvation. God prepares for Himself a holy dwelling place. The Byzantine Church never tires of praising the Mother of God for Her role in our salvation. She is called the "Heavenly Tabernacle" in the Kontakion of the Feast and the "Living Tabernacle of God" in the Hirmos. She is given these titles because in Her womb the Word of God has taken flesh and dwelt among us. Her body is the living tabernacle of the Incarnate Word and, through Her, God has taken on our human nature and elevated us to become "sharers of the divine nature" (2Peter 1: 4). God, Who is beyond our reach and beyond our grasp, comes to dwell among us. This is God's plan, and in the Virgin Mary, this plan of salvation was achieved. In the Icon of the Entrance of the Mother of God, Mary is shown as a young girl being escorted to the Temple by Her parents, Joachim and Anna. She is also accompanied by the holy virgins carrying candles. In all the icons of the Presentation, the High Priest greets the holy family at the entrance of the Temple. The entrance into the temple is the main event, so the figures of the holy family and the High Priest are predominant. The Church honors the Virgin Mary as the God-bearer, (in Greek: Theotokos) the one who, in God's plan of salvation, would give birth to God the Word. In the upper corner of some icons, the Virgin Mary is seen already seated in the Temple, and being cared for by the Angels. Thus, Mary, the young girl, is not only presented but also participates in the very task of Her temple life. Through the Icon, we celebrate and share this mystery in the life of the Virgin. TROPARION – Today is the prelude of the benevolence of God and the herald of the salvation of man, for the Virgin plainly appears in the temple of God and foretells Christ to ail. Let us also with full voice cry out to Her: "Hail, Fulfillment of the Creator's Plan." (God-with-us Icon series, icon #24.) “The Way“ VOL. 79 - No. 21 November 18, 2018 English Version pg. 27
