“Return to your house and proclaim what great things God has done for you.” Our healing Lord brings redemption and breaks the chains of sin, demonic possession and anything else that may be in our way to grow in holiness. Do you have a story of salvation that can be shared with the world by responding to it by the monastic or ordained life?

 The Beauty of Your House

At the end of the Divine Liturgy, during the Ambon Prayer, the priest asks God to “sanctify those who love the beauty of your house…”.  This reference comes from Psalm 25:8 (26:8 in most bibles) which says “Lord, I love the beauty of your house, the place where your glory dwells”.  This psalm is also referenced when a priest washes his hands after vesting and right before he begins the preparation rites for the Divine Liturgy.  Thus at the very beginning of the Divine Liturgy, and near the end, we are reminded of the sacred space that is our temple, the dwelling place of God.  I would encourage everyone to call our church building the “Temple” because in the Greek it is called a “Naos” which means “house” whereas “Ecclesia”, translated “church” means “gathering”.  So we are the “church”, gathered in the “house” of God.  This is of course not a hard and fast rule, but I think it’s helpful to acknowledge the sacredness and glory of our beautiful temple.
