- GLORY TO JESUS CHRIST - GLORY TO HIM FOREVER
Thank you for the wonderful posting. He could have written that yesterday. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Again, thanks for the words of wisdom.
Love in Christ,
I have no idea what I shall say to you today. I see that since the feast of
Pentecost the attendance at Divine Services has fallen off, the Prophets
are neglected, the Apostles are little valued, the Fathers are set aside?.
There is divine service once a week, and even this day you cannot spend
without the cares of business. As a matter of fact, the whole city is at
the circus. No poverty stands in the way there, no urgent work, no illness,
no weakness of the feet, nothing of all these is able to hold back the
unruly passion. The old men run with the youths to the betting and expose
their gray hairs to shame and ridicule. And if they occasionally come here
to church, they experience seizures, and listening to sermons gives them
-St. John Chrysostom
