Is Jesus Lord in your life?

The St. Mary’s Proto-Cathedral book club is now reading Everywhere Present and Filling all Things: Christianity in a One-Storey Universe. The Introduction reads, “In the ‘one-storey universe’ has become a dualistic segregation of God from human life in the ‘two storey’ model, in which God is absent from the first floor, and people begin to wonder if there is anyone home up there.” (p. 1) The secular view of reality allows God in the realm of spiritual things, but rejects him from all other things: political, scientific, historical, etc. This is problematic for the Christian worldview, not least because it keeps God away from our daily life, but also because it denies the essential Christian message, “Jesus is Lord.” Lord of what? Lord only of religion, or is Jesus Lord of all creation?

Dormition Fast

The 15-day penitential season that prepares our bodies and souls to receive and celebrate the feast of the Dormition of the Mother of God begins today, Aug. 1st.  Our bishop has not mandated any fasting regimen, but we are encouraged to intensify our prayer, fasting and almsgiving in preparation for this glorious feast!


“Nothing will be impossible for you!” Jesus taught his disciples to pray and to fast with faith. In that faith, nothing would be impossible for them. This same truth is still true today as we begin this Dormition Fast. To see this more clearly, we need men and women of faith to serve the Church as priests, deacons, subdeacons, monks and nuns. If God may be calling you to this life, contact the Vocations Office at 206-329-9219 or email:
