Eparchial Appeal

The Annual Eparchial Appeal is underway!  You should have received a letter and donation instructions from Bishop Olmsted and the Eparchy of Phoenix.  You can use the instructions you received from the bishop, or you can visit our parish’s donation page here:  https://ephx.org/st-marys-eparchial-appeal/

We are working to support our Eparchy as a community, so please prayerfully discern what you can give, and I know we will meet and exceed our goal (we get a large percentage back) if we have full participation. Thank you for your generosity!

Thank you to those who have contributed: Clemens, Crans, Michnya, Patzwahl, Theisen, P. Zimmerman, and W. Zimmerman

Healing of the Paralytic

After Jesus healed the paralytic, he said these words, “See, you have been made well! Do not sin anymore, so that nothing worse happens to you.” We often forget that God is sovereign. That means he is in control of everything, down to the smallest detail of our life. We also forget that our discipline is allowed or given for our good. St. Maximos the Confessor invites us to consider our afflictions and ask the reason why. He says that if we have any “passion” (sinful inclinations) we should not be surprised that we have difficulties. If we ignore this reality then we may always go around thinking, “woe is me, what a bad lot I have.” A mind full of faith will learn to patiently indoor hard-ships because we will believe God is in control and wants to heal us from our sin. When the Lord is ready, or rather when we are ready, he will say, “Get up and walk,” either in this life, or in the one to come.

 

“Take up your mat and walk.” Our Lord can make us well, and it is always His will that we are able to walk, spiritually speaking. When we unite ourselves to His will we can bring healing to this world. Is He calling you to do so by a vocation to the monastic life, the diaconate in Christ or the priesthood?
