3 Annunciation Church M onthly Bulletin M ay 2013 Page 3 FROM METROPOLITAN METHODIOS OF BOSTON Metropolitan Methodios represented the Greek Orthodox Church at the Interfaith Prayer Service following the Boston Marathon tragedy This past Monday, a day rich with symbolism, an horrific act of terrorism wounded the heart and soul of our city and our nation. Thousands from throughout the world were in Boston as participants and spectators of the marathon which, as we all know, recalls the run of Phillipides from the ancient city of Marathon to Athens to announce the victory of Greece over the forces of an empire that devalued freedom, human dignity and democracy. The Boston marathon always coincides with Patriots Day, when we commemorate the battles of Lexington and Concord, the first of the American Revolution. Sadly it was on Patriot s Day when we celebrate the values of freedom and democracy, and the fiercely independent spirit of America that evil reared its ugly head once again and countless innocent men, women and children fell victim to a senseless and unspeakable act of brutality. But we know that bombs of terrorism may kill and injure, but they cannot crush the American spirit. Today we thank Cardinal O Malley for opening the embrace of his Cathedral to all of us to President Obama, to Governor Patrick, to Mayor Menino; to all who are in the public service; to the religious leaders of the Commonwealth; to every citizen, regardless of creed. We gather as a community as brothers and sisters in the household of God to bow our heads in solemn prayer for the repose of the souls of three innocent victims whose lives were violently taken, and for the countless victims who will bare painful wounds for the rest of their lives. We come today to thank God for the police and firefighters, the National Guard, the doctors and nurses for all who responded selflessly and courageously. We pray that our gracious, loving, compassionate and merciful God, the Healer of our souls and bodies watch over us and comfort us in our hour of pain. May He who is the Prince of peace bring peace to our souls and to our community. And may almighty God bless America!
4 Page 4 M ay 2013 Annunciation Church M onthly Bulletin FROM FATHER ANTHONY The following is taken from the April 2009 edition of the Annunciation bulletin. It doesn t seem like that long ago when Easter seemed like Easter, as we know it in the Orthodox Church. What I mean by this, is that growing up in San Francisco in the 60 s, I clearly recall when Western Easter still had to do with the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. Yes, there were Easter bunnies back then, but that wasn t the central part of the celebration. A hill near our house had a cross made of lights that was lit for Western Holy Week and Easter week. On Western Palm Sunday, Holy Friday, and Easter Sunday, Christians of various denominations dressed up in their best church clothes and went to church with their families. Even though it wasn t our Holy Week, my mother would tell us that we should respect what other Christians were doing, especially on Holy Friday. I even remember television stations on Holy Friday during station identification, displaying the Cross with flowers in the background. Also during Holy Week, a variety of biblical movies where aired. Where has all that gone now? What has changed with Christians today? Are we Orthodox also affected by today s attitudes? One thing that I believe has led to the demise of a more religious celebration of Easter, is the overshadowing of the Christmas season. Even though Easter is the most important and holiest Christian holiday, Christmas has become a much more visibly recognizable and celebrated feast. Of course, we know what has also happened to the Christmas holiday season, which is an entirely separate topic! Other reasons for the loss of the spiritual significance of Easter are more complicated sociological issues which go beyond our purpose in this article. As Western Easter approaches, you begin to see familiar items appearing in the stores Easter baskets, fake grass, plastic eggs, lots of candy, and Easter bunnies. Easter eggs are a colorful and fun diversion for small children, having no real religious significance. The general focus is obviously on children, as if adults have somehow outgrown Easter. In our politically correct world, we talk about spring break, not Easter break. With many people, any discussion of Easter takes on a vague theme of renewal a safe theme that can apply to various cultures and religions. Because the Orthodox Church has maintained its clear emphasis on the preparation for, and celebration of Easter, the actual theme is not at all lost in an ambiguous cloud of empty, feel good talk. We Orthodox worship and celebrate Christ crucified and risen. This Feast of Feasts is so important in the liturgical calendar, that exactly 18 weeks are related to the celebration of Easter, or Pascha as we refer to this greatest of feasts. This includes the three week pre- Lenten period, Great Lent, Holy Week, the forty-day celebration of Pascha ending with the Ascension, the 10-day preparation for Pentecost, plus the week of celebrating Pentecost, which brings us to the Sunday of All-Saints. This equates to 4-1/2 months of the year! This amount of time in itself demonstrates the centrality of the feast of Pascha in the life of the Church, and our own spiritual lives. Beloved in Christ, let us make it a point to keep our children well connected and involved with the true, complete, and grace-filled celebration of the New Passover Pascha, which is derived from the Hebrew word Pesach, which means Passover. Let them be clear on what we celebrate as Orthodox, and why. I m not insinuating that having Easter egg hunts with multi-colored eggs, and buying a child an Easter bunny are wrong things to do. These things can be done as supplements to the Orthodox celebration of Pascha. The point is not to let the influence of a de- Christianized Easter permeate our homes and spiritual lives. A personal habit of mine is never referring to Orthodox Easter by that name. I prefer calling it Pascha, instead of a name that has nothing to do with the feast, but rather, a pagan spring festival. In addition to what we call the feast, we should always strive to keep the Orthodox celebration of Pascha unique and deeply meaningful, as it should be. Of course, if we want our children to come to love and appreciate Holy Pascha, we need to bring them to as many Holy Week services as possible. Children truly love and connect with our beautiful and meaningful rituals. The time to plant these seeds is while they are still young little spiritual sponges soaking in the grace of the Holy Spirit. Everything we Orthodox do related to the celebration of Pascha, from the Church s venerable traditions down to the symbolic traditions kept in our homes, will be in our children s hands to perpetuate throughout the coming generations. Let us all assist in preserving and passing on these venerable traditions, that have become so much a part of who we are as Orthodox Christians. In the love of the Crucified and Risen Lord, +Fr. Anthony
5 Annunciation Church M onthly Bulletin M ay 2013 Page 5 SPIRITUAL WISDOM From the Holy Fathers The following is taken from the writing of St. John of Damascus, regarding the Resurrection of Christ. The deified soul went down into hell so that, just as the Sun of Justice rose upon those on earth, so also might the light shine upon them under the earth who were sitting in darkness and the shadow of death; so that, just as He had brought the good news of peace to those on earth, so also might He bring that of deliverance to captives and that of sight to the blind And thus, having loosed them that had been bound for ages, He came back again from the dead and made the resurrection possible for us. After His resurrection from the dead He put aside all His passions, that is to say, ruin, hunger and thirst, sleep and fatigue, and the like. For even though He did taste food after His resurrection, it was not in obedience to any law of nature, because He did not feel hunger, but by way of dispensation that He might confirm the truth of the resurrection by showing that the flesh which had suffered and that which had risen were the same. Moreover, He did not put aside any of the elements of His nature, neither body nor soul, but kept possession of the body and the rational, intellectual, willing and acting soul. And thus He sits at the right hand of the Father and wills our salvation both as God and as man. And, while He acts as God by working the providence, preservation, and government of all things, He acts as man in remembering His labors on earth and in seeing and knowing that He is adored by all rational creation. Memorial Day Cemetery Visits In Appreciation From Father Since this edition is going to print prior to Holy Pascha, I would like to make the following acknowledgments in advance. My sincere gratitude goes to the many volunteers who once again, have contributed to the beautiful services and preparations during all of Great Lent, Holy Week, and Holy Pascha. This includes our chanters, choir, altar boys, readers, decorating committee, Parish Council and Philoptochos members, and the many behind the scenes dedicated individuals who continually contribute to the life of our parish. May the Crucified and Risen Lord bless all of you and your families during this most holy time of the ecclesiastical year! On Memorial Day, Monday, May 27, Fr. Anthony will be at the following cemeteries: Melrose Cemetery 10:00 am Evergreen Cemetery, Stoughton 10:45 am Knollwood Cemetery, Canton 11:30 am Canton Corner Cemetery, Canton 12:15 pm Please be ready to hand Father Anthony your list of names of your loved ones. Thank you.
6 Page 6 M ay 2013 Annunciation Church M onthly Bulletin Metropolis of Boston Clergy Brotherhood A Message from Fr. Constantine Newman Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church of Newburyport, MA The Victory of Life and Love The Services of Holy Week and Pascha in the Orthodox Church form the core of our liturgical year. Most Orthodox, even those who only attend church sporadically are familiar with the moving services of the Lamentations and the Anastasi. But the Mystery of Holy Week is so much more than that; the Church invites us to journey with our Lord from the triumph of the raising of Lazaros, through His confrontations with the religious authorities, to the cross and, finally, to the victory of the Resurrection. The services of Holy Week tell one complete story; only by following each one can we truly understand the depths of love which God has for us. The story which the services of Holy Week tells is the cosmic battle which began in the Garden in the beginning. In order to defeat death, and its agent sin, God Himself not only entered our world, but confronted death face-to-face. By journeying into the very heart of evil, He triumphed over it and destroyed it from within. The power of death which held us captive from the beginning was broken. We feel the power of this truth at midnight of Pascha as we wait in the dark, waiting for the one flame to come forth, Life coming forth from the tomb, and for this Light of Life to come to each of us, until the whole Church is aglow with the Light of the Resurrection. Then, in this celestial brightness, we can say with St. Paul, O death, where is your sting? O grave, where is your victory? (1Corinthians 15:55) But this light will be an empty experience if we have not walked the long and difficult path of the Cross. If the Resurrection is the victory of life, the Cross is the victory of love. The two form one eternal whole, inviting into the very life of the Trinity. The life of the Trinity expresses itself entirely in self-sacrificial love. Which brings us back again to the services of Holy Week. By living each service, by contemplating the meaning of each day, we are drawn ever closer to the love of God who chose to empty Himself in every way in order to love us. What better way can there be of spending our time, making the smallest effort of love on our part in response to God s infinite love for us.
