2 PARISH LIFE
3 PASTORAL MESSAGE Dear Parishioners of our Beloved Assumption, When Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and she exclaimed with a loud cry, "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! This testament from the Gospel of Luke shows us that before St. John the Baptist s birth, he was already preparing the way of the Lord. Before he was taken from the womb, the womb became a place of worship for in the womb he bowed to the Lord. This witness was a proclamation for his mother that compelled her to recognize the Λόγος, Christ the Word, being brought before her. This moment was not only a moment of revelation of Christ in her womb, but a moment in which the Virgin Mary became the mother to Elizabeth, who raised the Virgin Mary when she lived in the temple, and in fact the mother of all. Mary, the betrothed one, who dedicated her life to virginity, through whose virgin womb brought forth the Savior, stood before the one whose womb was opened after 50 years of marriage to bring forth the forerunner, John the Baptist! Thus it is with this understanding that we proclaim the Apolytikion of the Dormition: In birth, you preserved your virginity; in death, you did not abandon the world, O Theotokos. As mother of life, you departed to the source of life, delivering our souls from death by your intercessions. This is the proclamation of our Blessed Feastday celebrated just 2 weeks ago. Let it continue to live in our hearts as we enter this new ecclesiastical year. Thanking the Lord for His Blessings on us, I remain, in His Service, Rev. Father Jon Boukis PROISTAMENOS

5 HOSPITAL VISITATION Hospital Visitation is a ministry that we as Orthodox take very seriously, because it is at times when our fallen humanity is failing that we often times also experience spiritual weakness. Just a reminder, hospital visitations and visitation to our homebound parishioners are of utmost importance, but will only occur when the request comes from the family directly. Please respect this policy and also the Church and the Clergy. With pastoral love, Rev. Father Jon S. Boukis PROISTAMENOS Fr.

6 HOW OLD IS THE ORTHODOX CHURCH? By Rev. Dr. Miltiades Efthimiou If you are a Lutheran, your religion was founded by Martin Luther, an exmonk of the Catholic Church, in the year If you belong to the church of England, your religion was founded by King Henry VIII in the year 1534 because the Pope would not grant him a divorce with the right to re-marry. If you are Presbyterian, your religion was founded by John Knox in Scotland in the year If you are a Congregationalist, your religion was originated by Robert Brown in Holland in If you are a Protestant Episcopalian, your religion was an offshoot of the Church of England, founded by Samuel Senbury in the American Colonies in the 17th century. If you are Baptist, you owe the tenets of your religion to John Smyth, who launched it in Amsterdam in If you are of the Dutch Reform Church, you recognize Michelis Jones as founder because he originated your religion in New York in If you are Methodist, your religion was founded by John and Charles Wesley in England in If you are Mormon (Latter Day Saints), Joseph Smith started your religion in Palmyra, New York in If you worship with the Salvation Army, your sect began with William Booth in London in If you are Christian Scientist, you look to 1879 as the year which your religion was born and to Mary Baker Eddy as the founder. If you belong to one of the religious organizations known as Church of the Nazarene, Pentecostal Gospel, Holiness Church or Jehovah s Witnesses, your religion is one of hundreds of new sects founded by men within the past hundred years. If you are Roman Catholic, your church shared the same rich apostolic and doctrinal heritage as the Orthodox Church for the first thousand years of its history since during the first millennium they were one and the same Church. Lamentably, in 1054, the Pope of Rome broke away from the other four Apostolic Patriarchates (which included Constantinople, Alexandria, Antioch and Jerusalem), by tampering with the Original Creed of the Church, and considering himself to be infallible. Thus your church is 1,000 years old. If you are Orthodox Christian, your religion was founded in the year 33 by Jesus Christ the Son of God. It has not changed since that time. Our church is now almost 2,000 years old. And it is for this reason, that Orthodoxy, the Church of the Apostles and the Fathers is considered the true one Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. This is the greatest legacy that we can pass on to the young people of the new millennium!

8 EXALTATION OF THE HOLY CROSS The Elevation of the Venerable and Life- Creating Cross of the Lord: The pagan Roman emperors tried to completely eradicate from human memory the holy places where our Lord Jesus Christ suffered and was resurrected for mankind. The Emperor Hadrian ( ) gave orders to cover over the ground of Golgotha and the Sepulchre of the Lord, and to build a temple of the pagan goddess Venus and a statue of Jupiter. Pagans gathered at this place and offered sacrifice to idols there. Eventually after 300 years, by Divine Providence, the great Christian sacred remains, the Sepulchre of the Lord and the Life-Creating Cross were again discovered and opened for veneration. This took place under the Emperor Constantine the Great ( ). In 313 he had issued the Edict of Milan, by which the Christian religion was legalized and the persecutions against Christians in the Western half of the empire were stopped. The ruler Licinius, although he had signed the Edict of Milan to oblige Constantine, still fanatically continued the persecutions against Christians. Only after his conclusive defeat did the 313 Edict of toleration extend also to the Eastern part of the empire. The Holy Equal of the Apostles Emperor Constantine, having gained victory over his enemies in three wars with God's assistance, had seen in the heavens the Sign of the Cross, and written beneath: "By this you shall conquer." Ardently desiring to find the Cross on which our Lord Jesus Christ was crucified, St Constantine sent his mother, the pious Empress Helen (May 21), to Jerusalem, providing her with a letter to St Macarius, Patriarch of Jerusalem. Although the holy empress Helen was already in her declining years, she set about completing the task with enthusiasm. The empress gave orders to destroy the pagan temple and the statues in Jerusalem. Searching for the Life- Creating Cross, she made inquiry of Christians and Jews, but for a long time her search remained unsuccessful. Finally, they directed her to a certain elderly Hebrew by the name of Jude who stated that the Cross was buried where the temple of Venus stood. They demolished the pagan temple and, after praying, they began to excavate the ground. Soon the Tomb of the Lord was uncovered. Not far from it were three crosses, a board with the inscription ordered by Pilate, and four nails which had pierced the Lord's Body (March 6).
9 CELEBRATED SEPTEMBER 14 TH To discern on which of the three crosses Christ was crucified, Patriarch Macarius alternately touched the crosses to a corpse. When the Cross of the Lord touched the dead one, he came to life. Having beheld the raising of the dead man, everyone was convinced that the Life-Creating Cross was found. During the discovery of the Life-Creating Cross another miracle took place: a grievously sick woman, beneath the shadow of the Holy Cross, was healed instantly. The elder Jude and other Jews there believed in Christ and accepted Holy Baptism. Jude received the name Cyriacus and afterwards was consecrated Bishop of Jerusalem. The holy empress Helen journeyed to the holy places connected with the earthly life of the Savior, building more than 80 churches, at Bethlehem the birthplace of Christ, and on the Mount of Olives where the Lord ascended to Heaven, and at Gethsemane where the Savior prayed before His sufferings and where the Mother of God was buried after her death. St Helen took part of the Life-Creating Wood and nails with her to Constantinople. The holy emperor Constantine gave orders to build at Jerusalem a majestic and spacious church in honor of the Resurrection of Christ, also including under its roof the Life-Giving Tomb of the Lord and Golgotha. The temple was constructed in about ten years. St Helen did not survive until the dedication of the temple, she died in the year 327. The church was consecrated on September 13, 335. On the following day, September 14, the festal celebration of the Exaltation of the Venerable and Life-Creating Cross was established. During the reign of the Byzantine emperor Phocas ( ) the Persians defeated the Greek army, plundered Jerusalem and captured both the Life- Creating Cross of the Lord and the Holy Patriarch Zachariah ( ). The Cross remained in Persia for fourteen years and only under the emperor Heraclius ( ), who with the help of God defeated Khozroes and concluded peace with his successor and son Syroes, was the Cross of the Lord returned to the Christians. With great solemnity the Life-creating Cross was transferred to Jerusalem. Emperor Heraclius in imperial crown and royal purple carried the Cross of Christ into the temple of the Resurrection. With the emperor went Patriarch Zacharios. At the gates by which they ascended Golgotha, the emperor suddenly stopped and was not able to proceed farther. The holy Patriarch explained to the emperor that an angel of the Lord was blocking his way. The emperor was told to remove his royal trappings and to walk barefoot, since He Who bore the Cross for the salvation of the world from sin had made His way to Golgotha in all humility. Then Heraclius donned plain garb, and without further hindrance, carried the Cross of Christ into the church.

14 Γενέθλιον τῆς Θεοτόκου 8 Σεπτεμβρίου "Αποκάλυψον προς Κύριον την οδόν σου και έλπισον επ αυτόν, και αυτός ποιήσει". Φανέρωσε στον Κύριο με εμπιστοσύνη το δρόμο και τις επιδιώξεις και τις ανάγκες της ζωής σου και έλπισε σ Αυτόν και Αυτός θα κάνει εκείνα που ζητάς και χρειάζεσαι. Μ αυτή την εμπιστοσύνη και ελπίδα, ο Ιωακείμ και η Άννα ικέτευαν προσευχόμενοι το Θεό να τους χαρίσει παιδί, να το έχουν γλυκειά παρηγορία στα γεράματά τους. Και την ελπίδα τους ο Θεός έκανε πραγματικότητα. Τους χάρισε την Παρθένο Μαριάμ, που ήταν ορισμένη να γεννήσει το Σωτήρα του κόσμου και να λάμψει σαν η πιό ευλογημένη μεταξύ των γυναικών. Ήταν εκείνη, από την οποία έμελλε να προέλθει Αυτός που θα συνέτριβε την κεφαλή του νοητού όφεως. Στην Παλαιά Διαθήκη δόθηκαν πολλές προτυπώσεις της Υπεραγίας Θεοτόκου. Μία είναι και η βάτος στο Σίνα, την οποία ενώ είχαν περιζώσει φλόγες φωτιάς, αυτή δεν καιγόταν. Ήταν απεικόνιση της Παρθένου, που θα γεννούσε το Σωτήρα Χριστό και συγχρόνως θα διατηρούσε την παρθενία της. Έτσι, η Άννα και ο Ιωακείμ, που ήταν από το γένος του Δαβίδ, με την κραταιά ελπίδα που είχαν στο Θεό απέκτησαν απ Αυτόν το επιθυμητό δώρο, που θα συντροφεύει τον κόσμο μέχρι συντελείας αιώνων.
15 Ἡ Ὓψωσίς τοῦ Τιμίου Σταυροῦ 14 Σεπτεμβρίου Το έτος 326 η Αγία Ελένη πήγε σ τ η ν Ιερουσαλήμ γ ι α να προσκυνήσει τους Αγίους Τόπους και να ευχαριστήσει το Θεό για τους θριάμβους του γιού της Μ. Κωνσταντίνου. Ο Θείος ζήλος, όμως, έκανε την Αγία Ελήνη να αρχίσει έρευνες για την ανεύρεση του Τιμίου Σταυρού. Επάνω στο Γολγοθά υπήρχε ειδωλολατρικός ναός της θεάς Αφροδίτης, τον οποίο γκρέμισε και άρχισε τις ανασκαφές. Σε κάποιο σημείο, βρέθηκαν τρείς σταυροί. Η συγκίνηση υπήρξε μεγάλη, αλλά ποιός από τους τρείς ήταν του Κυρίου; Τότε ο επίσκοπος Ιεροσολύμων Μακάριος με αρκετούς ιερείς, αφού έκανε δέηση, άγγιξε στους σταυρούς το σώμα μιάς ευσεβεστάτης κυρίας που είχε πεθάνει. Όταν ήλθε η σειρά και άγγιξε τον τρίτο σταυρό, που ήταν πραγματικά του Κυρίου, η γυναίκα αμέσως αναστήθηκε. Η είδηση διαδόθηκε σαν αστραπή σε όλα τα μέρη της Ιερουσαλήμ. Πλήθη πιστών άρχισαν να συρρέουν για να αγγίξουν το τίμιο ξύλο. Επειδή, όμως, συνέβησαν πολλά δυστυχήματα από το συνωστισμό, ύψωσαν τον Τίμιο Σταυρό μέσα στο ναό σε μέρος υψηλό, για να μπορέσουν να τον δούν και να τον προσκυνήσουν όλοι. Αυτή, λοιπόν, την ύψωση καθιέρωσαν οι άγιοι Πατέρες, να γιορτάζουμε στις 14 Σεπτεμβρίου, για να μπορέσουμε κι εμέις να υψώσουμε μέσα στις ψυχές μας το Σταυρό του Κυρίου μας, που αποτελεί το κατ εξοχήν "όπλον κατά του διαβόλου".
