The Ascension of Our Lord

The Ascension of Our Lord ~ Celebrated Wednesday June 12 @ 6PM

THE ASCENSION OF OUR LORD

We celebrate the 40th Day of Pascha – the Feast of the Ascension of our Lord – on June 13.  The Vesperal Divine Liturgy will be celebrated on Wednesday evening, June 12 at 6:00 pm.  At the Nocturnes before the Midnight Service of Holy Pascha, the Shroud of our Lord was lifted out of the Tomb and placed on the Holy Table.  Now before the Vesperal Divine Liturgy of the Ascension, the Shroud will be lifted from the Holy Table as we sing: “Be Thou exalted, O God, above the heavens, and let Thy glory over all the earth.”

 

"Oh taste and see how good the Lord is!"

That One Should Not Lie – Abba Dorotheos

I wish to remind you, O brethren, about lying, for I see that you do not strive very hard to restrain your tongues and from this we are easily drawn into much evil.  Make note my brethren that in every matter, as I constantly tell you, one may acquire a habit either for the good or for the evil; and so one needs great heedfulness so that we will not be robbed by lying, for one who lies has no union with God. Lying is foreign to God.
