      Living Bread and Priest at the Altar

      In memory of Reverend Father James Pike, priest, who passed to the next life July 23, 2009

      "[The priest] is one who can humble himself and have compassion on those who are ignorant and go astray; for he himself also is subject to weaknesses." (Hebrews 5:2)....and an exemplar of this high standard was Fr James. Eternal memory!

      This homiletic sermon is two lessons with scripture commentary:
      1. Bread of Life as the living fruit of the Tree of Life on this side of the Garden. Gospel of John 6:47-59
      2. Priest as bridge and intercessor at the altar, inwardly and outwardly. Epistle to the Hebrews 4:14-5:5

      This sermon has a special memorial tribute to Father James Pike, a priest ofthe Mission Society of St Gregorios of India who died July 23, 2009 in Spokane, Washington.

      The sermon uses the readings from the Malankara lectionary.

      This sermon given on Sunday, July 26, 2009 by Fr John Brian Paprock at
      Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Mission Chapel, Madison, Wisconsin.
