Sunday 24 after Pentecost

Luke 8:26-38

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, AMEN.

In today’s Gospel reading, Saint Luke tells us that the man possessed by demons had demons for a long time, and had been sick for many years, and therefore had become well known in the whole region. This madman lived in the tombs, wandering in the wilderness, terrorizing the people in the fields and on the roads.

Sunday of Orthodoxy

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ: By God’s grace, we have ended a week of intensified prayer and ascetical repentance. Now, today, the Holy Church wishes to comfort us, and has given us a great spiritual celebration in this first Sunday of Lent – the Triumph of Holy Orthodoxy. His Holiness Patriarch Methodius first performed this celebration in the year 842 in Constantinople in the presence of the Blessed Empress Theodora in memory of the overthrow of the heresy of iconoclasm.
