3 Dear Parishioners of our Beloved Assumption, It is a necessity of the Church that we celebrate feasts on a cyclical calendar, so that as the Body of Christ we may commemorate the feasts of the church, but for the individual, each and every day we must commemorate His crucifixion and celebrate His resurrection. The hymns of Pascha are not chanted in the church, but must always resonate in our hearts. One of the most challenging disciplines for us as Christians is to develop a prayer rule that consistently reminds us of His sacrifice and subsequent great gift to us. So what should we do? Each day, at 9 a.m. (for His crucifixion), 12 Noon (for His surrender of His spirit) and 3 p.m. (for His removal from the Cross), remember to recite the Jesus prayer silently wherever you may be (start with 3 times and progress to 33 times) and end with the Lord s Prayer. Begin each day with a prayer thanking God for keeping you through the night and end each day asking him to keep you and your loved ones safe. Always bless your food and yourself before and after meals. Just a few moments of everyday to remember His awesome presence in our lives. Worshipping His Crucifixion and 3 rd Day Blessed Resurrection daily, I remain, In His Service, Rev. Father Jon Boukis PROISTAMENOS

6 Celebrated June 8 th Such, therefore, are the reasons for the feast of Pentecost: the coming of the All-holy Spirit into the world, the completion of the Lord Jesus Christ's promise, and the fulfillment of the hope of the sacred disciples, which we celebrate today. This is the final feast of the great mystery and dispensation of God's incarnation. On this last, and great, and saving day of Pentecost, the Apostles of the Savior, who were unlearned fishermen, made wise now of a sudden by the Holy Spirit, clearly and with divine authority spoke the heavenly doctrines. They became heralds of the truth and teachers of the whole world. On this day they were ordained and began their apostleship, of which the salvation of those three thousand souls in one day was the comely and marvelous first fruit. That which came to pass at Pentecost, then, was the ordination of the Apostles, the commencement of the apostolic preaching to the nations, and the inauguration of the priesthood of the new Israel. Therefore, together with the baptism of the Holy Spirit which came upon them who were present in the upper chamber, which the Lord had foretold as recorded in the Acts, "ye shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days hence" (Acts 1:5), the Apostles were also appointed and raised to the high priestly rank, according to Saint John Chrysostom. On this day commenced the celebration of the Holy Eucharist by which we become "partakers of the Divine Nature" (II Peter 1:4). For before Pentecost, it is said of the Apostles and disciples only that they abode in "prayer and supplication" (Acts 1:14); it is only after the coming of the Holy Spirit that they persevered in the "breaking of bread," that is, the communion of the Holy Mysteries- "and in prayer" (Acts 2:42).
7 Celebrated June 29 th Paul, the chosen vessel of Christ, the glory of the Church, the Apostle of the Nations and teacher of the whole world, was a Jew by race, of the tribe of Benjamin, having Tarsus as his homeland. He was a Roman citizen, fluent in the Greek language, an expert in knowledge of the Law. For this cause, from the beginning, Paul was a most fervent zealot for the traditions of the Jews and a great persecutor of the Church of Christ; at that time, his name was Saul. In his great passion of rage and fury against the disciples of the Lord, he went to Damascus bearing letters of introduction from the high priest. His intention was to bring the disciples of Christ back to Jerusalem in bonds. As he was approaching Damascus, about midday there suddenly shone upon him a light from Heaven. Falling on the earth, he heard a voice saying to him, "Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou Me?" And he asked, "Who art Thou, Lord?" And the Lord said, "I am Jesus Whom thou persecutest; it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks." And that heavenly voice and brilliance made him tremble, and he was blinded for a time. He was led by the hand into the city, and on account of a divine revelation to the Apostle Ananias, he was baptized by him, and both his bodily and spiritual eyes were opened to the knowledge of the Sun of Righteousness. And straightway- O wondrous transformation! - beyond all expectation, he spoke with boldness in the synagogues, proclaiming that "Christ is the Son of God" (Acts 9:1-21). As for his zeal in preaching the Gospel after these things had come to pass, as for his unabating labors and afflictions of diverse kinds, the wounds, the prisons, the bonds, the beatings, the stonings, the shipwrecks, the journeys, the perils on land, on sea, in cities, in wildernesses, the continual vigils, the daily fasting, the hunger, the thirst, the nakedness, and all those other things that he endured for the Name of Christ, and which he underwent before nations and kings and the Israelites, and above all, his care for all the churches, his fiery longing for the salvation of all, whereby he became all things to all men, that he might save them all if possible, and because of which, with his heart aflame, he continuously traveled throughout all parts, visiting them all, and like a bird of heaven flying from Asia and Europe, the West and East, neither staying nor abiding in any one place - all these things are related in the Book of the Acts, and as he himself tells them in his Epistles. Having completed the work of his ministry, he likewise ended his life in martyrdom when he was beheaded in Rome during the reign of Nero, at the same time, some say, when Peter was crucified.

12 Κυριακή της Αγίας Πεντηκοστής 8 Ιουνίου Μετά την Ανάληψη του Κυρίου στους ουρανούς, οι Απόστολοι και οι υπόλοιποι μαθητές του, καθώς και οι γυναίκες που απο την αρχή τον είχαν ακολουθήσει, η Παναγία Παρθένος Μαρία η Μητέρα του και τα αδέλφια του, περίπου όλοι μαζί 120 άτομα, γύρισαν απο το όρος των Ελαιών στην Ιερουσαλήμ και, μπαίνοντας στο σπίτι όπου έμεναν, ανέβηκαν στο υπερώο, δηλαδή στον πάνω όροφο του σπιτιού και εκεί, περίμεναν με προσευχή την επιφοίτηση του Αγίου Πνεύματος, σύμφωνα με την υπόσχεση του Σωτήρα Χριστού. Στο μεταξή εκεί, εξέλεξαν και τον Ματθία και τον συναρίθμησαν με τους ένδεκα Αποστόλους. Κυριακή των Άγιων Πάντων 30 Ιουνίου Τον κάθε ένα απο τους γνωστούς Αγίους, τιμούμε ειδικά σε κάποια μέρα του χρόνου. Επειδή όμως πολλοί μας είναι άγνωστοι και ο αριθμός τους πολλαπλασιάστηκε κατά καιρούς, γι αυτό η Εκκλησία όρισε, μια συγκεκριμένη γιορτή. Έτσι λοιπόν την ημέρα αυτή, τιμάμε με ευλάβεια όλους τους Δικαίους, Προφήτες, Όσιους, άνδρες και γυναίκες μαζί, γνωστούς και άγνωστους, όσους απο τον Αδάμ μέχρι τώρα απεβίωσαν με ευσέβεις και με τα καλά τους έργα δόξασαν τον Θεό. Αυτούς όλους και αυτές επίσης τις στρατιές των Αγγέλων, πρίν απ αυτούς δε και μαζί με όλους την Παναγία Θεοτόκο και αειπάρθενο Μαρία, τιμάμε σήμερα με την παρούσα γιορτή, προβάλλοντας τη ζωή της σαν παράδειγμα αρετής. Και παρακαλούμε όλους αυτούς τους Αγίους να πρεσβεύουν στον Θεό για μας προκειμένου η χάρη και το άπειρο έλεός Του να είναι μαζί με όλους μας.
13 Αποστόλοι Πέτρος και Παύλος Οι Πρωτοκορυφαίοι Απόστολοι ΠΕΤΡΟΣ και ΠΑΥΛΟΣ 29 Ιουνίου Ο Πέτρος καταγόταν απο τη Βηθσαϊδά της Γαλιλαίας και ήταν γιός του Ιωνά, αδελφός του αποστόλου Ανδρέα του Πρωτοκλήτου και ήταν ψαράδες στη λίμνη Γεννησαρέτ. Είχε νυμφευθεί στην Καπερναούμ, όπου έμενε οικογενειακά, μαζί με την πεθερά του. Ψαράς στο επάγγελμα, ήταν τύπος αυθόρμητος, ορμητικός, και η ζωή του κοντά στο Χριστό τη μαθαίνουμε απο τα τέσσερα Ευαγγέλια, ενώ την αποστολική του δράση, απο τις Πράξεις τών Αποστόλων. Έγραψε και δύο Καθολικές Επιστολές, μέσα στις οποίες, να τί προτρέπει στους χριστιανούς: "Νήψατε, γρηγορήσατε, ο αντίδικος υμών διάβολος ώς λέων ωμυόμενος περιπατεί ζητών τίνα καταπίη". Δηλαδή εγκρατευθείτε, γίνετε άγρυπνοι και προσεκτικοί. Διότι ο αντίπαλος και κατήγοράς σας διάβολος, σαν λιοντάρι που βρυχάται, περιπατεί με μανία και ζητάει ποιόν να τραβήξει μακριά απο την πίστη για να τον καταπιεί. Μετά την Ανάληψη του Κυρίου, ο Πέτρος, δίδαξε το Ευαγγέλιο στην Ιουδαία, στην Αντιόχεια, στον Πόντο, στην Γαλατία, στην Καππαδοκία, στην Ασία και τη Βιθυνία. Κατά την παράδοση (που σημαίνει ότι δεν είναι απόλυτα ιστορικά διασταυρωμένο) έφτασε μέχρι τη Ρώμη, όπου επί Νέρωνος (54-68) υπέστη μαρτυρικό θάνατο, αφού τον σταύρωσαν χιαστί, με το κεφάλι προς τα κάτω. Ο δε Παύλος γεννήθηκε στην Ταρσό της Κιλικίας και στην αρχή ήταν σκληρός διώκτης του χριστιανισμού. Όμως, με θαύμα γνώρισε το Χριστό και έγινε ο μεγαλύτερος κήρυκας του Ευαγγελίου, θυσιάζοντας μάλιστα και τη ζωή του γι αυτό. Ονομάστηκε Απόστολος τών Εθνών, και τη ζωή με τις περιπέτειες του θα τα δεί κανείς, άν μελετήσει τις Πράξεις τών Αποστόλων, αλλά και τις 14 Επιστολές του στην Καινή Διαθήκη. Ο Παύλος θέλει κάθε χριστιανός, όπως και ο ίδιος, να αισθάνεται και να λέει: "ζώ δε ουκέτι εγώ, ζή δε εν εμοί Χριστός".Δηλαδή, δε ζώ πλέον εγώ, ο παλαιός άνθρωπος, αλλά ζεί μέσα μου ο Χριστός. Και ακόμα, "τα πάντα και εν πάσι Χριστός". Να διευθύνει, δηλαδή, όλες τις εκδηλώσεις της ανθρώπινης ζωής μας ο Χριστός. Ο απόστολος Παύλος υπέστη μαρτυρικό θάνατο (χωρίς αυτό να είναι απόλυτα διασταυρωμένο) δι αποκεφαλισμού στη Ρώμη.
