SCRIPTURE READINGS
Sunday, April 21, 2019

Gospel Reading 
(Mark 16:2-8)
And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb.  They had been saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?” When they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had already been rolled back.  As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man, dressed in a white robe, sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed.  But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed; you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has been raised; he is not here. Look, there is the place they laid him.  But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see him, just as he told you.”  So they went out and fled from the tomb, for terror and amazement had seized them; and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.
 
**********************************************************************
Dismissal Gospel

(John 20:19-25)
When it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and the doors of the house where the disciples had met were locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.”  After he said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.  Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”  When he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.  If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.” But Thomas (who was called the Twin), one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came.  So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands, and put my finger in the mark of the nails and my hand in his side, I will not believe.” A week later his disciples were again in the house, and Thomas was with them. Although the doors were shut, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it in my side. Do not doubt but believe.” Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!”  Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe.”

**********************************************************************

Gospel Commentary 
Christ is risen from the dead.  This reality was something that was received differently by different people.  It wasn’t that the reality was suspect.  It was that it’s effect depended on the spiritual preparedness of those receiving it.  The women embraced it immediately;  most of the disciples accepted it after dealing with their fear; Thomas doubted it until he received physical proof.  We are called not only to accept the resurrection of our Lord, but to live it.  During this week analyze where you are.   “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe.”

FAR (Fund for Armenian Relief)  FAR’s GTech Course Helps Youth Find Employment in IT

Thanks to one of FAR’s Gyumri Information Technology Center (GTech) recent projects, more promising young people have secured jobs at some of Armenia’s leading IT companies. Called “Boosting Technological Developments,” it aims to support development of the region through skills enrichment of young and vulnerable populations. About 80 students can participate at a time in the course, which has a corresponding internship. Most who complete it have already found employment. Nvard Martirosyan, 23, was studying finance when she got interested in programming and heard about a new GTech course. She interned at Chessify and now works there as an IOS programmer.

Turning Conflict Into Adventure:  by Doug Fields

Turn away from evil and do good. Search for peace, and work to maintain it.
 (Peter 3:10-11 )

Personally, I hate conflict. Even the word conflict sounds painful! It has a harsh ring to it. The etymology of the word involves the prefix con- and the suffix –flict. Con- is from the same source from which we developed the word constipation. And –flict is the origin of afflicted, as in, What a drag! I’m afflicted with constipation. (Okay, I haven’t really fact-checked all that, but that’s the image I get when I think of conflict–constipated affliction.)  I can’t stand the feeling I get when I experience tension with others. Conflict causes me more bodily stress than anything else. People think it’s stressful to speak to crowds and it can be. But, I’d rather speak to a million people than experience tension with just one–especially someone I care about. Believe it or not, conflict can actually be part of God’s strategy to transform us into the people He wants us to be. God can use the conflict in our lives for His glory. In brief, conflict can be part of God’s adventure for us. So how can relational conflict possibly be an adventure? Think of it this way: the one factor present in all adventures is conflict. In order to have an adventure, you need some sort of obstacle to overcome.  Whenever we’re involved in conflict, we’re forced to overcome an obstacle and in dealing with that obstacle, we’re invited to seek Christ more intensely. That’s when the adventure begins–when the conflict drives us to our knees. In the midst of the conflict, we encounter a situation that is so unclear, difficult and tension filled, that we need a good Guide to navigate the path. This is where Jesus comes in. Smack-dab in the middle of our battle, He joins us and offers us a clear light to the other side. Think of Jesus walking out on the water to Peter in the midst of a storm (Matthew 14:22-33). With water raging all around him, Peter is offered a new glimpse into a life of faith. He would never have received that opportunity if he had not been out in a storm.  That’s our invitation in the middle of relational conflict: to see any such struggle as an invitation to Christ’s adventure in transformation. Christ extends His hand to us and invites us to walk with Him through the storm. As we seek Him, He transforms us into deeper, richer and more meaningful people. Conflict is the catalyst that God uses to show Himself to us and to cause new growth to happen in our lives.

 

 

Scripture Readings for Sunday, January 21st..
 

Gospel Reading 
(John 6:15-21)

When Jesus realized that they were about to come and take him by force to make him king, he withdrew again to the mountain by himself.  When evening came, his disciples went down to the sea, got into a boat, and started across the sea to Capernaum. It was now dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them.  The sea became rough because a strong wind was blowing.  When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the boat, and they were terrified.  But he said to them, “It is I; do not be afraid.”  Then they wanted to take him into the boat, and      immediately the boat reached the land toward which they were going.
**********************************************************************
 
Epistle Reading
(2Timothy 2:15-26)

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved by him, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly explaining the word of truth.  Avoid profane chatter, for it will lead people into more and more impiety,  and their talk will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus,  who have swerved from the truth by   claiming that the resurrection has already taken place. They are upsetting the faith of some.  But God’s firm foundation stands, bearing this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Let everyone who calls on the name of the Lord turn away from wickedness.”  In a large house there are utensils not only of gold and silver but also of wood and clay, some for special use, some for ordinary.  All who cleanse   themselves of the things I have mentioned will become special utensils, dedicated and useful to the owner of the house, ready for every good work.  Shun youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. Have nothing to do with stupid and senseless controversies; you know that they breed quarrels.  And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but kindly to everyone, an apt teacher, patient,  correcting opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant that they will repent and come to know the truth, and that they may escape from the snare of the devil, having been held captive by him to do his will.
**********************************************************************
 
Gospel Commentary

The Galilean Jews, with their misguided messianic enthusiasm, equate Jesus with the Prophet from Deuteronomy 18:15-19, whom they expect to be an earthly, political leader who will lead them against the occupying Romans, as Moses led his people out of bondage.  Because He is not to fulfill these expectations, Jesus withdraws from the crowd.  Jesus walking on water, this the fifth of Christ’s miracles reported by John, reenacts ancient Israel’s passage through the red Sea.  Moses led the old Israelites through the sea to liberty.  Christ walks on top of the water and leads His disciples over the sea to “the land where they were going.”  Christ’s walking on the sea is a sign of  His lordship over creation.

Far Health Programs
Surgery Helps One Little Boy To Walk Properly .

 

 

Since early childhood, Mher Avetisyan’s club feet have never hindered him from running around and playing with his peers. Still, after doing so he would feel weak and tired.

A few months ago, the five-year-old underwent foot surgery with the help of FAR’s Child Poverty Reduction Program, and very soon he will be able to walk normally again. While he had clubfoot defect on both of his feet, his family of six was unable to afford the external fixator that was needed to correct his legs.

“It was a sudden surprise, I wouldn’t even believe it at first. Only now, we saw that it is possible,” said Mher’s grandmother Yeranuhi, while at the hospital awaiting her grandson’s recovery.

Mher, his older sister and brother, mother, father, and grandmother live in the village of Kosh in the Aragatsotn Province of Armenia. His mother Karmen used to work as accountant at the village’s kindergarten until it closed due to lack of funding. She is now unemployed. Mher’s father is in Russia working in construction, but has yet has to send money to his family. Right now, the family lives solely on Yeranuhi’s pension and the state poverty allowance.

“This was like a miracle sent to us from God,” Karmen said about the surgery. FAR’s heath team, which inquired about the neediest cases to Aragatsotn Province’s administration, selected Mher to receive assistance. Once they received his medical history, FAR decided to cover expenses for the external fixator, which is more expensive than the cost of surgery itself. Surgery costs were then covered by state.

In 2017, 24 children like Mher received proper health services thanks to the Child Poverty Reduction program that is sponsored by Arpine and Arda Hovnanian Fund.

Mher is now back home and will be under the guidance of his doctor for a while. Keep on smiling, Mher!

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

O Come Let Us Adore Him
Christ, The Lord!


For if  we take Christ out of Christmas we are left only with
_ _ _ _ _ _ mas. –  Merely  A  Show.

Find the Jesus within you!

 CHRISTMAS ADVENT
Western Christmas
There was a man born of Jewish parents in an obscure village.
He worked in a carpenter shop until he was thirty.
And then for three years he was an itinerant preacher.
He never wrote a book.
He never held an office.
He never owned a home.
He never had a family.
He never went to college.
He never put his foot inside a big city.
He never traveled 200 miles from the place where he was born.
He never did any of the things that usually accompany greatness.
While still a young man the tide of popular opinion turned against him.
His friends ran away from him.
He was turned over to his enemies.
He went through the mockery of a trial.
His executioners gambled for the only piece of property he had – his coat.
When he was dead he was taken down and laid in a borrowed grave.
All the armies that have ever marched.
All the navies that were ever built.
All the parliaments that ever sat.
All the kings that ever reigned – all together
Have not affected the life of man upon the earth as this
ONE SOLITARY LIFE!!!
(by Jim Bishop)
Let us take the time during this Advent  Season to truly prepare ourselves for Christ.  For if  we take Christ out of Christmas we are left only with
_ _ _ _ _ _ mas. –  Merely  A  Show.

Advent Prayer


Lord, as I travel through the days that lead to the celebration of Your birth, help me keep an eye on the real Christmas.  Behind the Christmas family photos, let me discover Your divine and holy image.  In my Christmas card list, fill my heart with the entire human family so precious to You.   Before I Christmas shop, let me give first to the poor and the needy, the lonely and the despairing.  Among the carols, let my heart fill with sincere love and praise for You.  Give me the gift, this year, dear Lord of the real Christmas.

Scripture Readings for Sunday, December 24th.

Gospel Reading 
(Luke 19:12-28)
So he said, “A nobleman went to a distant country to get royal power for himself and then return.  He summoned ten of his slaves, and gave them ten pounds, and said to them, ‘Do business with these until I come back.’  But the citizens of his country hated him and sent a delegation after him, saying, ‘We do not want this man to rule over us.’  When he returned, having received royal power, he ordered these slaves, to whom he had given the money, to be summoned so that he might find out what they had gained by trading.  The first came forward and said, ‘Lord, your pound has made ten more pounds.’  He said to him, ‘Well done, good slave! Because you have been trustworthy in a very small thing, take charge of ten cities.’  Then the second came, saying, ‘Lord, your pound has made five pounds.’  He said to him, ‘And you, rule over five cities.’  Then the other came, saying, ‘Lord, here is your pound. I wrapped it up in a piece of cloth,  for I was afraid of you, because you are a harsh man; you take what you did not deposit, and reap what you did not sow.’  He said to him, ‘I will judge you by your own words, you wicked slave! You knew, did you, that I was a harsh man, taking what I did not deposit and reaping what I did not sow?  Why then did you not put my money into the bank? Then when I returned, I could have collected it with interest.’  He said to the bystanders, ‘Take the pound from him and give it to the one who has ten pounds.’ (And they said to him, ‘Lord, he has ten pounds!’)  ‘I tell you, to all those who have, more will be given; but from those who have nothing, even what they have will be taken away.  But as for these enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them–bring them here and slaughter them in my presence.’ “

******************************************************************************
Epistle  Reading
(Hebrews 7:11-25)

Now if perfection had been attainable through the levitical priesthood–for the people received the law under this priesthood–what further need would there have been to speak of another priest arising according to the order of Melchizedek, rather than one according to the order of Aaron? For when there is a change in the priesthood, there is necessarily a change in the law as well. Now the one of whom these things are spoken belonged to another tribe, from which no one has ever served at the altar.  For it is evident that our Lord was descended from Judah, and in connection with that tribe Moses said nothing about priests.  It is even more obvious when another priest arises, resembling Melchizedek, one who has become a priest, not through a legal requirement concerning physical descent, but through the power of an indestructible life. For it is attested of him, “You are a priest forever, according to the order of Melchizedek.”  There is, on the one hand, the abrogation of an earlier commandment because it was weak and ineffectual  (for the law made nothing perfect); there is, on the other hand, the introduction of a better hope, through which we approach God.  This was confirmed with an oath; for others who became priests took their office without an oath, but this one became a priest with an oath, because of the one who said to him,  “The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind, ‘You are a priest forever’ “–accordingly Jesus has also become the guarantee of a better covenant.  Furthermore, the former priests were many in number, because they were prevented by death from continuing in office; but he holds his priesthood permanently, because he continues forever. Consequently he is able for all time to save those who approach God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them.

*********************************************************************
Gospel Commentary

A noble ruler gives the same sum of money to ten servants; only three give an accounting to him.  A pound is a measure of money equivalent to about three months salary.  Rather than waiting for the Kingdom in lazy occupation, we are to anticipate and plan for the Kingdom to come, through wise use of the King’s resources.

Parish Announcements!

News from FAR (Fund for Armenian Relief)
CASP Support Helps One Woman To Raise Her Grandchildren

Flora Yesayan is 68 years old. She is the sole caretaker of her three grandchildren, 11-year-old Narek, 17-year-old Nune, and 20-year-old Zina. Flora can’t tell the story of her family without tears that she tries to hide from young Narek. Her son died in a car crash five years ago. They then lost the children’s mother to cancer a year and a half ago. Now, the family tries to make the best of it where they live in the tiny village of Tavush, in the Berd Region.

Zina studies psychology at Yerevan State Pedagogical Institute. Nune is working on trying to finish high school with good grades and Narek is in the 6th grade. While he loves math, he hasn’t yet chosen his future specialization. This year, Narek was chosen to be a recipient of the Children of Armenia Sponsorship Program‘s (CASP) stipend. The program provides annual financial assistance through stipends to orphans and children of single mothers in Armenia and Javakhk, Georgia, until they turn 18. FAR is responsible for the distribution of scholarships in Shirak, Tavush, and Syunik provinces. This fall, FAR has distributed funds to 428 children.

Narek, like every other child of his age, loves playing and spending time with his friends. “We play football, visit each other’s homes, and play computer games. My closest friend is Mkhitar. All my friends are boys because all my female classmates live far from us. There are nine girls and six boys in the class,” said Narek.

Narek’s life is busy. He helps his grandmother grow vegetables and fruits in their garden. They consume part of the harvest during summer and preserve the rest for winter. He is also fond of making model airplanes, which he learned how to do on the Internet at school. “I also love drawing; two times a week I go to the regional center in Berd to take drawing classes at the Fine Arts School. Another two days a week I attend drawing classes at my school,” Narek said. Such classes are offered for free to children without parents and his teachers think his art is beautiful and impressive. His works are often shown at different events and exhibitions in Berd.

Narek also loves bananas. He even tries to grow bananas in the garden, but his tree never yields fruit since the climate isn’t warm enough.

The family lives in their own house. While it is old and in need of repair it is still theirs and they does everything they can to keep it in order. They have water in the house, and natural gas that they use to cook. For heating, they use firewood.

The grandmother Flora mentioned that while it is difficult, they are able to make ends meet. The state pension that the children receive ($190 a month for all of them) is hardly enough to run the household and support Zina in Yerevan. And Flora’s pension is just $90.

“I am very thankful to CASP. I am saving the stipend to accumulate enough to renovate the roof. I hope to do that next year,” Flora said.

Children of Armenia Sponsorship Program (CASP) is sponsored by the Women’s Guild Central Council of the Eastern Diocese.

THE FEAST OF PENTECOST

This Sunday,  the Armenian Church, as well as many other traditional Churches within Christendom, celebrates PENTECOST.  Pentecost is the 50th day after Easter.  In the Old Testament, the people of Israel commemorated the 50th day (which means Pentecost in Greek) after Passover as the day when God gave the Law (the Ten Commandments) to Moses on Mount Sinai.  In the New Testament, the followers of Christ were told by Jesus at His Ascension  to “… stay in the city (Jerusalem) until you are clothed with the power from on High.” (the Holy Spirit) Luke 24:49.  Ten Days after this and 50 days after Easter (the New Passover), the Apostles received the Holy Spirit and were filled with the power of God.  They were then able to go out into the world and preach the Gospel of our Lord fully.”When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place.  And suddenly a sound came from Heaven like the rush of a mighty  wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.  And there appeared to them tongues as of fire, distributed and resting on each of them.  And they were filled with the Holy Spirit…” (Acts 2:1-4).

The Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Holy Trinity.  He is God.  Through the Holy Spirit we are united with Christ.  The Holy Spirit leads us to God.  If we are to be true Christians, we, like the Apostles,  should also be “inspired” (filled with the Holy Spirit).  Our entire lives should reflect this reality in all that we do and say.

Let us pray to God that He fill us all with the precious gift of His Holy Spirit so that we may truly become His disciples in our world today.

 

 

 

Scripture Readings for Sunday, June 4h.
 

Gospel Reading
(John 14:25-31) 
“I have said these things to you while I am still with you.  But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you.  Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.  You heard me say to you, ‘I am going away, and I am coming to you.’ If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than I.  And now I have told you this before it occurs, so that when it does occur, you may believe.  I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming. He has no power over me;  but I do as the Father has commanded me, so that the world may know that I love the Father. Rise, let us be on our way.
*****************************************************************************
Epistle Reading
(Acts 2:1-21)
When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place..  And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting.  Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them.  All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability.  Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven living in Jerusalem. And at this sound the crowd gathered and was bewildered, because each one heard them speaking in the native language of each.  Amazed and astonished, they asked, “Are not all these who are speaking Galileans?  And how is it that we hear, each of us, in our own native language? Parthians, Medes, Elamites, and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia,  Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes,  Cretans and Arabs–in our own languages we hear them speaking about God’s deeds of power.”  All were amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “What does this mean?”  But others sneered and said, “They are filled with new wine.”  But Peter, standing with the eleven, raised his voice and addressed them, “Men of Judea and all who live in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and listen to what I say.  Indeed, these are not drunk, as you suppose, for it is only nine o’clock in the morning.  No, this is what was spoken through the prophet Joel:  ‘In the last days it will be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.  Even upon my slaves, both men and women, in those days I will pour out my Spirit; and they shall prophesy. And I will show portents in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood, and fire, and smoky mist.  The sun shall be turned to darkness and the moon to blood, before the coming of the Lord’s great and glorious day.  Then everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.’
**********************************************************************
 
Gospel Commentary

When we attempt to accomplish anything there is a process.  There is the attainment of knowledge which gives us the tools we need and there is the element of execution: the ability to take the knowledge received and turn it into something productive and useful.  In our spiritual life the second aspect of this process is realized through the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit give us the grace to be able to truly understand and appreciate the passive knowledge of our Faith which we receive and  turn it into action.  This week pray for the awakening of the graces you received at your Baptism through the Holy Spirit to lead you to action during your daily activities and see if it make a difference in the way you approach things.
