    Message 1 of 1502 , May 11, 2003
      Christ Is Risen! Truly He Is Risen!

      "Self-knowledge is needful; this is the knowledge of oneself and especially
      of the limitation of one's talents, one's failings, and lack of skill. From
      this it should result that we consider ourselves unworthy of any kind of
      position, and therefore that we do not desire any special positions, but
      rather accept what is placed upon us with fear and humility. He who knows
      himself pays no heed to the sins of others, but looks to his own and is
      always repenting over them; he reflects concerning himself, and condemns
      himself, and does not interfere in anything apart from his own position."

      Abbot Nazarius.


      "This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him, And saved him out of all
      his troubles." Psalm 34:6


      The Bible reading for the 4th of Bashans, May 12th, is:
      39 But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would
      receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet
      glorified. 40 Therefore many from the crowd, when they heard this saying,
      said, "Truly this is the Prophet." 41 Others said, "This is the Christ." But
      some said, "Will the Christ come out of Galilee? 42 Has not the Scripture
      said that the Christ comes from the seed of David and from the town of
      Bethlehem, where David was?" (John 7:39-42)

      The Bible reading for the 5th of Bashans, May 13th, is: John 8:12-16
