The Nicene Creed

 

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Only-begotten, Begotten of the Father before all ages. Light of Light, True God of True God, Begotten, not made; of one essence with the Father, by whom all things were made: Who for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and became man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered and was buried; and on the third day He rose, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of the Father. And He shall come again, with glory to judge the living and the dead, whose Kingdom shall have no end. And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, and Giver of Life, Who proceedeth from the Father, Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified, Who spake by the Prophets; And I believe in One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the remission of sins. I look for the Resurrection of the dead, and the life of the age to come. Amen.

Sunday Bulletin

Ignatius of Antioch the God-Bearer (December 20)

By choosing the Apostles’ way of life, thou hast succeeded to their throne. Inspired by God, thou didst find the way to divine contemplation through the practice of virtue. After teaching the Word of Truth without error, thou didst defend the Faith to the very shedding of thy blood, O Holy Martyr among bishops Ignatius. Entreat the Lord our God to save our souls. (Apolytikion in Tone 4)

Wisdom

"When we take our hidden sins to Confession, and admit each of them before God, our Lord removes these passions, little by little, so that the Light of Christ may enter in. We begin to see things as they really are. We see God in everything and everyone, and we give thanks to our Maker that He has so generously blessed us." -- His Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH
