Коли ж прийде Син Людський у славі Своїй, і всі Анголи з Ним, тоді Він засяде на престолі слави Своєї. І перед Ним усі народи зберуться, і Він відділить одного від одного їх, як відділяє вівчар овець від козлів. І поставить Він вівці праворуч Себе, а козлята лівору Тоді скаже Цар тим, хто праворуч Його: Прийдіть, благословенні Мого Отця, посядьте Царство, уготоване вам від закладин світу. Бо Я голодував був і ви нагодували Мене, прагнув і ви напоїли Мене, мандрівником Я був і Мене прийняли ви. Був нагий і Мене зодягли ви, слабував і Мене ви відвідали, у в’язниці Я був і прийшли ви до Мене. Тоді відповідять Йому праведні й скажуть: Господи, коли то Тебе ми голодного бачили і нагодували, або спрагненого і напоїли? Коли то Тебе мандрівником ми бачили і прийняли, чи нагим і зодягли? Коли то Тебе ми недужого бачили, чи в в’язниці і до Тебе прийшли? Цар відповість і промовить до них: Поправді кажу вам: що тільки вчинили ви одному з найменших братів Моїх цих, те Мені ви вчинили. Тоді скаже й тим, хто ліворуч: Ідіть ви від Мене, прокляті, у вічний огонь, що дияволові та його посланцям приготований. Бо Я голодував був і не нагодували Мене, прагнув і ви не напоїли Мене, мандрівником Я був і не прийняли ви Мене, був нагий і не зодягли ви Мене, слабий і в в’язниці і Мене не відвідали ви. Тоді відповідять і вони, промовляючи: Господи, коли то Тебе ми голодного бачили, або спрагненого, або мандрівником, чи нагого, чи недужого, чи в в’язниці і не послужили Тобі? Тоді Він відповість їм і скаже: Поправді кажу вам: чого тільки одному з найменших цих ви не вчинили, Мені не вчинили! І ці підуть на вічную муку, а праведники на вічне життя.

Mt 25:31-46.

The Lord said:‘When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, and he will put the sheep at his right hand and the goats at the left. Then the king will say to those at his right hand, “Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.” Then the righteous will answer him, “Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?” And the king will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” Then he will say to those at his left hand, “You that are accursed, depart from me into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not give me clothing, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.” Then they also will answer, “Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not take care of you?” Then he will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.” And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.’

From the Pastoral Letter of the 2018 Synod of Bishops on God’s Word and Catechesis.
Learn the Language of Faith.

The Apostle Paul in his letter to the Romans states that “faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ” (10,17). The “textbook” from which we learn the language of faith is
the Bible and Catechism of our Church. Therefore, we encourage you to treat the Holy Scriptures and the Catechism of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, “Christ our Pascha,” as the most important books in every family.
Our Venerable Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky teaches us how to read the Bible in the family:
“It is necessary for every Christian to clearly understand the value of reading and knowing the Bible. The Holy Gospel is what sanctifies every home and showers it with grace, for it is bestows faith and love on its inhabitants. The Gospel protect them from harm, shows them the path in life, uplifts their hearts to heaven and cleanses their souls of stain. I would not hesitate to say that it heals all wounds of their bodies. The practice of reading the Holy Scriptures every day, even briefly, ought to become the practice of every Christian family. Such reading should be seen as daily nourishment. It is a healthy, healing and strengthening food…” (On Venerating the Holy Cross)
