TO THOSE WORKING OUT THEIR SALVATION AT THE SPIRITUAL HOME OF HOLY TRINITY
GLORY TO JESUS CHRIST! … GLORY FOREVER!
Dear Brothers & Sisters,
Summer is upon us which brings many activities that can distract us from what we should be doing … that is constantly ’Thirsting for Christ’. The following is a quote from St. Isaac of Syria that explains why we must Thirst for Christ:
Thirst For Christ
Thirst for Jesus, so that He may inebriate you with his love.
Blind your eyes to all that is held in honor in the world, so that you may be held worthy to have the peace which comes from God reign in your heart.
Fast from the allurements that make the eyes glitter, in order that you may become worthy of spiritual joy.
Prayer accords strictly with behavior. For no one yearns for heavenly things when he is bound up in the fetters of the will concerning bodily matters; or is there anyone who will ask for things divine when he is occupied with earthly matters.
Everyone’s desire is made known by his actions, and it is for the things about which he is concerned that a person will be
anxious to ask. The person who desires the greatest things is not concerned with the lesser.
Brethren, let us enjoy our summer activities but never stop Thirsting for Christ.
With love in Christ our Lord,
Join us Sunday July 31st for our Parish Picnic!
