Велика Субота -Great Saturday

GREAT SATURDAY.
THERE IS A GREAT SILENCE
ON EARTH TODAY,
A GREAT SILENCE AND STILLNESS,
SILENCE BECAUSE THE KING IS ASLEEP.
GOD HAS DIED IN THE FLESH
AND HELL TREMBLES
WITH FEAR

Today a tomb holds Him who holds the creation in the hollow of His hand; a stone covers Him who covered the heavens with glory. Life sleeps and hell trembles; and Adam is set free from his bonds. Glory to Thy dispensation, whereby Thou hast accom;ished all things, granting us an eternal Sabbath, Thy most holy Resurrection from the dead. Greek Hymn from Holy Saturday Morning Vigil.

Matthew 27:39-54

Now from the sixth hour until the ninth hour there was darkness over all the land. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”
Some of those who stood there, when they heard that, said, “This Man is calling for Elijah!” Immediately one of them ran and took a sponge, filled it with sour wine and put it on a reed, and offered it to Him to drink.
The rest said, “Let Him alone; let us see if Elijah will come to save Him.”And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit. Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.
So when the centurion and those with him, who were guarding Jesus, saw the earthquake and the things that had happened, they feared greatly, saying, “Truly this was the Son of God!”

Matthew 27:45-50 – Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” And some of the bystanders, hearing it, said, “This man is calling Elijah.” And one of them at once ran and took a sponge, filled it with sour wine, and put it on a reed and gave it to him to drink. But the others said, “Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to save him.” And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit.

“It is hard for us to see in the accidents and trails of life, in sickness, in bereavement, in financial loss, in cancerous bodies and leprous limbs, any Divine Purpose. That is why our blessed Lord had to take suffering upon Himself, in order to show us that it is the Father’s Cup. Every tear, disappointment and grieved heart is a blank check. If we write our name on it, it is worthless. If we sign it with Christ’s name, it is infinite in its value. In prosperity, Christ gives you His gifts; in suffering with faith, He gives you Himself.”

~Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen (Lenten & Easter Inspirations)

Prepare your soul to receive the boundless mercy of God.

Posted on March 22, 2018

Our Parish Lenten Mission will take place Saturday, March 24. This evening we welcome Fr. Mychajlo Bundz, priest at St.Volodymyr Church in Utica.NY. He will be having the homily on Saturday Liturgy at 5:00 pm and he will be able to hear our confessions at 4:15 pm before and after Divine Liturgy.
The Church teaches that every Catholic is to receive the Mysteries of Repentance and Eucharist at least once a year, during the Lenten/Easter season.The Church also encourages to have Repentance before holidays (Easter,Christmas,others).
Let us remember that Holy Confession is a spiritual cleansing and an inventory of our posture before Almighty God. Please prepare before confession using the booklet “Going to Confession?” which you can find near the bulletin.

What is repentance? Repentance is the act of turning from one’s sin and reorienting one’s entire life toward God. The aspects of repentance are three: contrition, confession, and satisfaction. Contrition is sorrow and perfect grief of the heart, which comes about in a person who, on account of the sins committed, disappointed God and transgressed His divine Law. Related to contrition is affliction, which is also a sorrow and imperfect grief of the heart, which comes about, not because a person disappointed God by his sins, but because that person was deprived of divine grace, lost Paradise, and gained hell.
