4 ORTHODOX LIFE March 2013 Page 4 Page 21 Parish Council News Donations PRESIDENT S MESSAGE Pamela Karamas Katsiris, President The Youth are our future. That can t just be a saying, lip service, it has to be a mantra, a movement: something that drives us always to reach out to the children and young adults of our parish. We can all say that our parents dragged us to things we didn t, at first, want to attend, be it Greek School, Sunday School, Church early on a Sunday morning when we were home visiting from college, when all we wanted to do was sleep in. But, I am hoping, that most of us, when we got there, felt happier, saw a friend we hadn t seen in a while, heard a sermon that touched us or just felt better for going. Some of my best friendships in life, are those that I forged at church events; basketball, GOYA, church dances. I hear that from others as well. We want to give those wonderful experiences, shared joys and lifelong commitments to our kids. We had a chance to ask our youth about their church life and experience on March 15 th at our first Family Spaghetti dinner and Youth General Assembly. The Men s Club, who has always been a steadfast supporter of our youth programs, provided dinner, PTA supplied yummy dessert and wonderful volunteers set up and organized a great event. Members from the committee had a chance to share a casual meal and fellowship, and then we asked our kids to participate with the leaders of all the organizations that minister to the youth. We asked them for thoughtful insight on what was working and what could be improved. We asked them what they liked and what would make it easier for them to attend and to bring along more of their friends. I am happy to report that most of the comments were positive and criticisms were constructive and insightful. The children took the process seriously and spoke from the heart. We could tell they were all already committed to St Vasilios and that energized and pleased us all. The best comment at the end of the event, was from Chrysanthy Tiggas who came all the way from the Metropolis Camp in NH saying that this was the most pro-active event that she has ever seen any parish undertake. The Youth Committee still has a lot of information to digest and process and suggestions to implement, but we want our words to become works and actions. And my sincerest hope is that this event is one of many. That our children realize that we are doing what we do, for them, for their future and ours as well, and it s not just a saying, it s an action.

7 ORTHODOX LIFE March 2013 Page 18 Page 7 (Continued from page 1) Confession and Great Lent assurance of divine forgiveness, according to the words of Christ (Jn 20:23). Secondly, Holy Confession provides the opportunity to talk about one's deep concerns, to receive counsel and to be encouraged toward spiritual growth, all of which are universally recognized as extremely beneficial to personal life. Holy Confession is appropriate whenever an Orthodox Christian feels the need for it. It is also a part of our total spiritual preparation during the fast periods leading up to the great feasts of Easter, Christmas, the Falling Asleep of the Theotokos and the Feast of Twelve Apostles. However, Holy Confession is especially necessary: 1. when a serious sin has been committed; 2. when a habitual sin has overwhelmed a Christian, or 3. when a Christian has stopped growing spiritually and needs a reexamination of priorities. We confess our sins to God and the power of forgiveness is God's. However, the gift of God's forgiveness, although assured, is not magical. It does not automatically spare us from spiritual struggle - the continual vigilance against evil and the unceasing warfare against sin. Holy Confession will bear fruits in the Spirit only when the believer hates evil, utterly rejects sin and patiently cultivates positive habits of the life in Christ. "So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to Christ Jesus. Do not yield your members to sin as instruments of wickedness, but yield yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life" (Rm 6:11, 13) How can one prepare for Holy Confession? Preparation for Holy Confession is a prayerful examination of feelings, thoughts, words, acts, attitudes, habits, values, priorities, goals, direction and way of life. This prayerful self-examination includes not only the personal religious life, but also family relationships, social activities, job conduct, business dealings, political commitments and even recreational pursuits, because our entire existence should be lived in under the light of the Holy Spirit is not to condemn ourselves, but to affirm our true selves in Christ who has given us access to God's mercy and forgiveness and who has taught us to live for God's glory. Pray and think and your confession over several days. Ask God to help you perceive your sins and to make a thorough confession of them. Call the Church office and make an appointment with Father Chris to hear your confession. PRAYER OF REPENTANCE O Lord my God, I confess that I have sinned against You in thought, word and deed. I have also omitted to do what Your holy law requires of me. But now with repentance and contrition I turn again to Your love and mercy. I entreat You to forgive me all my transgression and to cleanse me from all my sins. Lord, fill my heart with the light of Your truth. Strengthen my will by Your grace. Teach me both to desire and to do only what pleases You. Amen. Now, without justification or self-pity, make a prayerful examinations of your conscience regarding all things. As a help, reflect on your life in the light of the the Beatitudes. Take pencil and paper and specify your sins so that, at the time of the sacrament, you will be able to make a thorough confession from the list, without confusion or lapse of memory. THE BEATITUDES Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Have I truly recognized my complete dependence on God? Have I been proud arrogant and self-righteous in my ways? Have I been selfish, possessive and selfseeking? Have I sought after status, power and wealth? Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Have I endured difficulties and afflictions with faith and patience? Have I felt sadness for the sufferings of the poor, the hungry, and addicted; the sick, the lonely and the sinful of the world? Have I truly been sorrowful for my sins and faults?
8 ORTHODOX LIFE March 2013 Page 8 Page 17 (Continued from page 7 Confession and Great Lent Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. Have I tried to serve or rather to dominate others at home, school, work, office, Church and elsewhere? Have I nursed anger against anyone? Have I been resentful, bitter, unforgiving or insulting and abusive to others? Have I loved my enemies? Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. Have I truly yearned for God's will to be done in all things? Have I worked for justice in my family, society and the world in ways with in my reach? Have I tried to cultivate a righteous life through prayer, fasting, worship, receiving Holy Communion and deeds of love toward others? Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. Have I shown compassion and help toward the poor, hungry, lonely and needy around me? Have I tried to understand and forgive others? Have I been indifferent judgmental or legalistic? Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Have I loved goodness, purity and holiness? Have I succumbed to evil motives and intentions? Have I given way to impure thoughts, words or deeds? Have I been guilty of bias and prejudice? Have I been hypocritical, pretentious or self-indulgent to sinful passions? Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. Do I have God's peace in my heart? Have I been unfairly angry, aggressive or impatient? Have I worked for peace at home, work, Church and in society? Have I been irritable, polemical, or divisive? Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Have I complained when persecuted for God's sake? Have I prayed for my persecutors? Have I failed to defend anyone in the truth for fear of humiliation or persecution? Have I had the courage to stand up for what is right despite criticism, ridicule or persecution? Blessed are you when they revile you and persecute you on my account; rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven Is the joy of Christ in my heart even in trying moments? Have I been pessimistic despondent or despairing? Have I truly delighted in the promise of God's treasures in heaven? + Fr.

Τά ευαγγέλια τονίζουν τή μεσσιανική ιδιότητα τού Χριστού. Πρώτη φορά ό Χριστός μπήκε στά Ιεροσόλυμα μ αυτό τόν τρόπο. Πρώτη φορά αποδέχθηκε τόν ενθουσιασμό καί τίς επευφημίες τού λαού, τή δημόσια επιδοκιμασία καί αναγνώριση. Καί αυτό γιατί γνώριζε πόσο θολά καί επιφανειακά είναι συνήθως τά αισθήματα τού κόσμου. Πόσο ασταθής καί ευμετάβλητη είναι ή ψυχολογία τής μάζας. Πόσο εύκολα στήν ιστορία τού κόσμου καί τήν προσωπική μας ζωή τό «ωσαννά, ευλογημένος ό ερχόμενος» εξελίσσεται καί μεταβάλλεται σέ «άρον άρον, σταύρωσον αυτόν» (Ιω. 19, 15). Μία χαρακτηριστική καί αντιπροσωπευτική συμπεριφορά τών περισσοτέρων ανθρώπων πού πρέπει νά μάς συνετίζει. Μέσα στή λειτουγική ζωή τής Εκκλησίας κάθε χρόνο θυμόμαστε καί γιορτάζουμε αυτό τό γεγονός. Καθώς ψάλλουμε τό «σήμερον ό Χριστός έισέρχεται είς τήν αγίαν πόλιν», συνδέουμε τό χθές τής ιστορίας πού πέρασε μέ τό σήμερα τής καθημερινότητας πού ζούμε. Επαναλαμβάνουμε τά ίδια τροπάρια καί αναγνώσματα, τίς ίδιες ακαολουθίες καί τελετές. Καί όμως τό περιεχόμενο καί τό πνευματικό τους μήνυμα μάς αγγίζει καί μάς συγκινεί πάντοτε. Έχουμε ανάγκη νά γινόμαστε μάρτυρες τής οδύνης τών παθών τού Χριστού, αλλά καί μέτοχοι τής χαράς τής Αναστάσεώς Του. Εδώ αποκαλύπτεται τό άγιο καί βαθύ μυστήριο τής έν Χριστώ σωτηρίας, πού υπερβαίνει κάθε τόπο καί χρόνο. Έξι ημέρες πρίν από τό Πάσχα ό Χριστός «επείγεται τού παθείν αγαθότητι». Σ αυτή τή πορεία μάς δείχνει πιοιά είναι ή βασιλεία Του καί μάς καλεί νά γίνουμε πολίτες της. Ό Χριστός μιλά γιά ενίσχυση καί υπομονή στίς θλίψεις, γιά ειρήνη καί ελπίδα. Μάς λέει γιά τόν αγώνα τής αγιότητας μέ τιμιότητα καί ταπείνωση, μέ κόπο καί θυσία. Απογοητεύει, βέβαια, τούς ανθρώπους τής εποχής Του καί τούς σημερινούς, πού τόν έβλεπαν καί τόν βλέπουν ωφελιμιστικά. Απογυμνώνει κάθε θρησκευτική πίστη πού στοχεύει στήν υπεροχή, τήν κοσμική δύναμη, τήν επιτυχία, τήν εκπλήρωση τών όποιων ονείρων ευτυχίας. Ή βασιλεία τού Θεού δέν έχει καμία σχέση μέ οτιδήποτε γήινο καί εγκόσμιο. Όπως τότε παρεξηγήθηκε, έτσι καί σήμερα διαστρεβλώνεται στήν εσφαλμένη σκέψη καί πρακτική κάποιων Χριστιανών. Ή βασιλεία τού Θεού έχει εγκαθιδρυθεί μυστηριακά στήν Εκκλησία, κρυμμένη στίς καρδιές τών πιστών μελών Της, πού περιμένουν τή φανέρωσή της. «... Όθεν καί ημείς ώς οί παίδες, τά τής νίκης σύμβολα φέροντες, σοί τώ νικητή τού θανάτου βοώμεν Ωσαννά έν τοίς υψίστοις, ευλογημένος ό ερχόμενος έν ονόματι Κυρίου...». Καθώς ψάλλουμε τό απολυτίκιο τής εορτής, επιβεβαιώνουμε τήν ομολογία τής πίστης μας ότι ενωμένοι μέ τόν Χριστό, έστω καί άν πεθάνουμε, δέν θά χαθούμε, αλλά θά ζήσουμε στό φώς τής Ανάστασής Του. Αναγνωρίζουμε ότι ό Σωτήρας Χριστός είναι ό Κύριος τής ζωής καί τού θανάτου. Αποδεχόμαστε ότι ό θάνατός Του είναι απόδειξη καί φανέρωση τής Κυριότητάς Του. Ό Ιερός Χριστόστομος γράφει «διά τούτο Αυτόν βασιλέα καλώ, επειδή βλέπω Αυτόν σταυρομένον βασιλέως γάρ εστίν τό υπέρ τών αρχομένων αποθνήσκειν.» Αγαπητοί μου αδελφοί, ζούμε σ έναν κόσμο πού γκρεμίζει τά χριστιανικά θεμέλια τού πολιτισμού. Μία εποχή πού προδίδει τίς χριστιανικές ρίζες καί αρχές. Κυβερνήσεις, πολιτικοοικονομικά συστήματα καί μέσα ενημέρωσης στή θρησκευτική τους αδιαφορία καί ουδετερότητα θέλουν τήν αποχριστιανοποίηση τής κοινωνίας. Αγωνίζονται γιά νά διατηρήσουν τήν εξουσία τους. Ανταγωνίζονται γιά νά αυξήσουν τήν επιρροή τους. Συγκρούονται σφοδρά γιά νά προωθήσουν τά συμφέροντά τους. Ή πίστη αμφισβητείται, εμπαίζεται καί παραμερίζεται. Αυτό δέν είναι σημείο τών καιρών μας, πού μπορεί νά μάς φοβίζει καί νά μάς απογοητεύει. Είναι βαθειά κατανόηση τής φύσης τών πραγμάτων τού κόσμου σέ σχέση μέ τόν διαχρονικό αγώνα τής πίστης. Οί πανίσχυρες καί διαπλεκόμενες «βασιλείες τού κόσμου» δέν άφηναν ποτέ καί δέν αφήνουν καί σήμερα τόπο γιά τή βασιλεία τού Θεού. Καί όμως ό Θεός έχει τόν δικό Του παράδοξο καί μυστηριώδη τρόπο νά ενεργεί στίς ψυχές τών ανθρώπων. Ανυποψίαστος ό σημερινός κόσμος δέν μπορεί νά καταλάβει τούς πιστούς πού καί σήμερα διακηρύττουν στίς κάθε είδους βασιλείες τής εποχής μας «ωσαννά, ζεί ή βασιλεία τού Θεού στίς καρδιές μας.» Αμήν. Εύχομαι, έκ βάθους καρδίας, σέ σάς καί όλα τά μέλη τής οικογένείας σας, νά διέλθετε τήν Μεγάλη Εβδομάδα πνευματικά ανυψωμένα καί ΚΑΛΗ ΑΝΑΣΤΑΣΗ! Μετ αγάπης πολλής έν Κυρίω, + π. Κυριάκος Β.

11 ORTHODOX LIFE March 2013 HEALTHBEAT Page 14 Page 11 The clergy brotherhood is submitting to each parish an article each month to be included in the the Monthly bulletin. This month s message is from Fr. Cleopas Strongylis Having already entered Great Lent, the Church once again asks us to rededicate ourselves to meet the challenges of this life, striving for the heavenly and incorruptible crown of virtue, which our Lord will grant us. Christ Himself cleared the path towards our deification by taking on human nature though His ineffable mercy, although He Himself was God! This good news serves as the basis of the Gospel, and finds completion in our Lord s triumphant Resurrection. Amidst this month s many holy services, there shines a truly special holiday that marks our faith and the history of the Greek people. On March 25th, the Christian world celebrates the Annunciation of the Theotokos, and the Greek nation celebrates its independence from four centuries under the Ottoman yolk. This double holiday affords us the opportunity to consider the meaning and concept of Freedom. The words of the hymnographer Wherever God wills, the order of nature is defeated attempt to illustrate the important role of freedom in our faith. The search for this very freedom has heavily colored Greek history and culture from its inception. The message of the Archangel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary may have appeared irrational to human ears, but it became and remains good tidings for all mankind. This news was crucial and decisive especially for the ever uneasy Greek people. God Himself accepts to take on the nature of his creation, for the sole sake of his manic love for the human race. This ecstatic love will lead Him to accept the most disgraceful of deaths, in order to ensure freedom (which through Christ was bestowed upon human nature) from the laws of nature and biological order of life, through Hi life-giving Resurrection! With this in mind let us complete the feast of Great Lent all together, so we can reach the joy of the Resurrection. In our common struggle, let us all place the changing of our mode of existence from the individual to the personal as our chief goal! Fr.
