From Fr. Nick Kotsis - When we moved into our house in 2005, the west end of our backyard needed a lot of work. The area from the southwest corner toward the front was filled with the stumps of small trees and bushes of an overgrown area the previous owners had ignored for a while. It took me two years to completely clear that area. All that was left was a large maple tree about 30 feet from that southwest corner.
By Fr. Alex Radulescu – Today, we go to the book of Proverbs. This is like a “manual of life” filled with snippets of wisdom collected over the years, most of them attributed to King Solomon. I encourage you to find time and read this book. You will be surprised how universal and timeless is the advice you find there.
By Fr. Nick Kotsis - Beloved Brothers and Sisters in Christ, I hope and pray everyone is well. I was speaking with a parishioner this afternoon, and we were batting around an idea. Here we have a virus that is invisible to the naked eye (I know it is seen through electron microscopes and by seeing it through these powerful devices is how it was named, Corona) and the entire world is transfixed by the image.

By Fr. Alex Radulescu - Today, I would like to draw your attention to the story of the tower of Babel, recorded in Genesis 11. Here is the story:
Beloved Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Chronia Polla! Happy Nameday to everyone, especially those named Evangelia or Evangelos!
This Feast commemorates the announcement by the Archangel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the Son of God, would become incarnate and enter into this world through her womb.
By Fr. Alex Radulescu – One of today’s Scripture readings is taken from the Book of Isaiah 25:1-9:
By Fr. Nick Kotsis - Great Lent is the time during the year when there is an appointed schedule for readings from the Old Testament. Most of the year, readings from the Old Testament are appointed only for certain Great Vespers services (readings from the Psalms are the exception – they are offered during nearly every daily service of the Church). Most of the year, the scriptural focus is on the Gospels and the rest of the New Testament.
