Holy Prophet Elijah – Feast day July 20 

Elijah accomplished many great and wonderful works.He prophesied a draught (1 Kings 17:1) then ended it(1 Kings 18:45).He gave life (1 Kings 17:22) and took it (1 Kings 18:19).He parted the Jordan River (2 Kings 2:8) and was taken to heaven in a fiery chariot (2 Kings 2:11).And yet, among all these great works, the deed that foreshadowed his appearance with Christ the Messiah on Mt. Tabor was his perception of the presence of God in the “still small voice”, rather than the raging wind, earthquake and fire (1 Kings 19:12).As we commemorate Elijah this week, let’s prepare to participate in the great and wonderful works of God (yet with more mercy and less “excessive zeal” –Ephrem the Syrian) by finding Him first in the still small voice of our daily lives and by loving those closest to us.  



Vocations Reflection

“Son, be of good cheer! Your sins are forgiven!” The faith of the friends of the paralytic brought healing and forgiveness. All of us can do the same in our own lives. Priests, deacons, monks and nuns are especially called to do this in the Church for the life of the world. If this may be something God is calling you to consider, contact the Vocations Office at 206-329-9219 or email:
