Sunday Services: the Sunday of the Rich Young Man

23 Nov

PorphyriosSunday, November 29th, is the Sunday of the Rich Young Man (13th Sunday of Luke).  Father Eugen Pentiuc is the presiding priest.  Orthros begins at 9 AM, followed by an Akathist Hymn to our Sweetest Lord Jesus Christ at 9:30 AM, and Divine Liturgy at 10 AM.

After services, Fellowship Hour will be held in the Hellenic Hall.  It is potluck, so please bring a dish to share (a fasting dish, without meat or dairy, as the Nativity Fast is currently being observed).

The Gospel reading is from Luke (18:18-27)

At that time, a ruler came to Jesus and asked him, “Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. You know the commandments: ‘Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honor your father and mother.” And he said, “All these I have observed from my youth.” And when Jesus heard it, he said to him, “One thing you still lack. Sell all that you have and distribute it to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” But when he heard this he became sad, for he was very rich. Jesus looking at him said, “How hard it is for those who have riches to enter the kingdom of God! For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” Those who heard it said, “Then who can be saved?” But he said, “What is impossible with men is possible with God.”
