Sunday of The Holy Fathers Of The 7th Ecumenical Council.

Posted on October 15, 2016


Gospel: (John 17:1-13) (Fathers): At the time the Jesus, looked up to heaven and said, ‘Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son so that the Son may glorify you, since you have given him authority over all people, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him. And this is eternal life, that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. I glorified you on earth by finishing the work that you gave me to do. So now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had in your presence before the world existed. ‘I have made your name known to those whom you gave me from the world. They were yours, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word. Now they know that everything you have given me is from you; for the words that you gave to me I have given to them, and they have received them and know in truth that I came from you; and they have believed that you sent me. I am asking on their behalf; I am not asking on behalf of the world, but on behalf of those whom you gave me, because they are yours. All mine are yours, and yours are mine; and I have been glorified in them. And now I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one, as we are one. While I was with them, I protected them in your name that you have given me. I guarded them, and not one of them was lost except the one destined to be lost, so that the scripture might be fulfilled. But now I am coming to you, and I speak these things in the world so that they may have my joy made complete in themselves.

(Ів 17,1-13) В той час Ісус, підвівши очі свої до неба, проказав: «Отче, прийшла година! Прослав свого Сина, щоб Син твій тебе прославив, згідно з владою, що її ти дав йому над усяким тілом: дарувати життя вічне тим, яких ти передав йому. А вічне життя у тому, щоб вони спізнали тебе, єдиного, істинного Бога, і тобою посланого – Ісуса Христа. Я тебе на землі прославив, виконавши те діло, яке ти дав мені до виконання. Тепер же прослав мене, Отче, у себе – славою тією, що її я мав у тебе перед тим, як постав світ! Я об’явив твоє ім’я людям, яких ти від світу передав мені. Вони були твої, ти ж передав мені їх, і зберегли вони слово твоє. Нині збагнули вони, що все, тобою дане мені – від тебе; слова бо, тобою мені дані, я їм дав, і сприйняли вони їх, і справді збагнули, що від тебе я вийшов, і увірували, що ти мене послав. Молю ж за них: не за світ молю, лише за тих, яких ти передав мені, бо вони – твої. І все моє – твоє, твоє ж – моє, і в них я прославився. Я вже більш не у світі, а вони у світі, і я до тебе йду. Отче Святий! Заради імени твого бережи їх, тих, що їх ти мені передав, щоб були одно, як ми! Бувши з ними у світі, я беріг їх у твоє ім’я; тих, яких ти передав мені, я їх стеріг, і ніхто з них не пропав, лише син загибелі, щоб збулося Писання. Тепер же іду до тебе, і кажу те, у світі бувши, щоб вони радощів моїх мали у собі вщерть.

Gospel (Lk 7: 11-16) :
At that time Jesus went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a large crowd went with him. As he approached the gate of the town, a man who had died was being carried out. He was his mother’s only son, and she was a widow; and with her was a large crowd from the town. When the Lord saw her, he had compassion for her and said to her, ‘Do not weep.’ Then he came forward and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still. And he said, ‘Young man, I say to you, rise!’ The dead man sat up and began to speak, and Jesus gave him to his mother. Fear seized all of them; and they glorified God, saying, ‘A great prophet has risen among us!’ and ‘God has looked favourably on his people!’

Євангеліє: (Лк 7,11-16) В той час пішов Ісус у місто, що зветься Наїн, а з ним ішли його учні й сила народу. Коли ж вони наблизились до міської брами, якраз виносили мертвого сина, єдиного в матері своєї, що була вдовою; і було з нею досить людей з міста. Побачивши її, Господь зглянувся над нею і сказав до неї: “Не плач.” І приступивши, доторкнувсь до мар, і ті, що несли, зупинились. Тоді Ісус сказав: “Юначе, кажу тобі, встань!” І мертвий підвівся і почав говорити. І він віддав його матері. Страх огорнув усіх, і вони прославляли Бога та й говорили: “Великий пророк устав між нами”, і: “Бог навідався до народу свого.”

Luke 10:38-42 -
Now as they went on their way, [Jesus] entered a village; and a woman named Martha received him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his teaching. But Martha was distracted with much serving; and she went to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things; one thing is needful. Mary has chosen the good portion, which shall not be taken away from her.

Gospel: (Mk 8:34-9:1): The Lord said, ‘If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it. For what will it profit them to gain the whole world and forfeit their life? Indeed, what can they give in return for their life? Those who are ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of them the Son of Man will also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.’ And he said to them, ‘Truly I tell you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see that the kingdom of God has come with power.’

Євангеліє: (Мр8,34-9,1):Сказав Господь: “Коли хтось хоче йти за мною, хай зречеться себе самого, візьме на себе хрест свій і йде слідом за мною . Бо хто хоче спасти свою душу, той її погубить ; а хто погубить свою душу мене ради таЄвангелії, той її спасе. Бо яка користь людині здобути,світу весь , а занапастити свою душу? Що бо людина може дати взамін за власну душу ? Хто , отже , буде соромитися ,мене й моїх слів перед цим родом перелюбним та грішним , того посоромиться і Син Чоловічий , коли прийде у славі Отця свого з святими ангелами .” І сказав їм :” Істинно кажу вам: Є деякі з отут присутніх, що незазнають смерти , аж поки не вздріють Царства Божого , що прийде у могутності.”

Parish Meeting Update: Thank you to all who attended the parish meeting. Last month the light at the church hall broke and fell. We discussed this issue and will need to update the lights in the parish hall. We are also continuing to explore options regarding the sale of the church hall. Stamford has requested a thorough analysis of the cost of maintaining the hall versus the benefit of selling the hall. We are working on the response to Stamford.
The Post Synodal Conference for Western NY parishes is coming to Rochester on October 29th, at St. Josaphat’s Ukrainian Catholic Church; it will go from 9 to 4 PM. The cost for the conference is $25. The same conference will take place in Stamford on October 8, for our others deanery parishes.
We need to be represented at this conference. The deadline to RSVP is September 15. Please let me know if you would like to attend before September 15.

Євангеліє: (Мт 22,1-14): Сказав Господь притчу оцю:“Царство Небесне схоже на царя, що справив своєму синові весілля. Він послав своїх слуг кликати запрошених на весілля, але вони не хотіли прийти. Тоді він знову послав інших слуг, кажучи: Скажіть запрошеним: Ось я зготував обід мій, зарізано волів та годовану худобу, все готове, ідіть на весілля. Та вони ним знехтували і пішли геть, хто на власне поле, хто до свого крамарства; інші ж, схопивши слуг, знущалися з них і вбили. Розгнівався цар і вислав військо, яке вигубило тих убивців, і їхнє місто спалило. Тоді він мовив своїм слугам: Обід готовий, але запрошені були негідні. Підіть, отже, на роздоріжжя і, кого лише здибаєте, кличте на весілля. Вийшли ці слуги на дороги і зібрали всіх, кого тільки спіткали, і злих і добрих, так що весільна світлиця була повна гостей. Якже ввійшов цар, щоб подивитися на гостей, побачив там чоловіка, що не був убраний у весільну одіж, і сказав до нього: Як ти ввійшов сюди, друже, не маючи весільної одежі? Той мовчав. Тоді цар промовив до слуг: Зв’яжіть йому ноги й руки і киньте геть у темряву кромішню. Там буде плач і скрегіт зубів. Багато бо покликаних, але мало вибраних.”
Gospel: Matthew 22:1-14: The Lord said this parable: “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a wedding banquet for his son. He sent his slaves to call those who had been invited to the wedding banquet, but they would not come. Again he sent other slaves, saying, ‘Tell those who have been invited: Look, I have prepared my dinner, my oxen and my fat calves have been slaughtered, and everything is ready; come to the wedding banquet.’ But they made light of it and went away, one to his farm, another to his business, while the rest seized his slaves, mistreated them, and killed them. The king was enraged. He sent his troops, destroyed those murderers, and burned their city. Then he said to his slaves, ‘The wedding is ready, but those invited were not worthy. Go therefore into the main streets, and invite everyone you find to the wedding banquet.’ Those slaves went out into the streets and gathered all whom they found, both good and bad; so the wedding hall was filled with guests. “But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing a wedding robe, and he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding robe?’ And he was speechless. Then the king said to the attendants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, and throw him into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ For many are called, but few are chosen.”
