Entertaining Angels

Monday March 28, Fr. Michael and Mother Natalia will discuss the Ascetical practice of hospitality for God With Us Online. In the Old Testament, Abraham and Sarah served three strangers not knowing they were messengers of God, setting an icon for us to demonstrate that in serving our neighbor, we serve the one who came to save us. Join them as they explore the importance of hospitality to others in our Christian life.

Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving

Remember that prayer, fasting, and almsgiving are tools, given by Our Lord, to help us navigate this pilgrimage of life, but especially during the desert journeys of the fasts.  They make us aware of, and able to receive, the treasures that are offered, and to avoid the hazards that are placed in our path by the evil one.  The Church has reflected on these three tools over the centuries, but we find Our Lord offering them himself in the Holy Scriptures (Matthew 6:6ff). 

There are many different reasons why one may customize their fasting regimen including eating disorders and other medical realities.  

Another very important and helpful teaching is to “keep your eyes on your own plate” and resist judging the fasting rule others are following.

It is also advised to accept any food that is offered in charity, regardless of your fasting rule.  You may decide to fast more intensely the following day if you weren’t able to fast because you accepted non-fasting foods from a neighbor.

Feel free to talk to one of the priests about any questions you may have.  Blessed Fast!


“We have found the one about whom Moses wrote in the law and also the prophets.” Finding our Savior during this Great Lent, we see that our “soiled image was restored to its original form, commingled with divine beauty.” God may be helping you find that a vocation to monasticism or holy orders is the beauty meant for you.
