3. Fr. GenesWeeklyReflection:  

No matter what we face…remember to Love God and Love your neighbour as yourself.  When we live by the light of the Gospel, no darkness can overpower us permanently.

 

4. Saints and Feasts:  

THE HOLY APOSTLE BARTHOLOMEW

Today commemorates the translation of the relics of St. Bartholomew, although his main feast is celebrated on June 11. When this great apostle was crucified in Albanopolis [Derbend] in Armenia, Christians removed his body and honorably buried it in a lead sarcophagus. When numerous miracles occurred over the grave of the apostle, especially healings of the sick, because of which the number of Christians increased, the pagans then took the sarcophagus containing the relics of Bartholomew and tossed it into the sea. At the same time they also threw four more sarcophagi into the sea containing the relics of four martyrs: Papian, Lucian, Gregory and Acacius. However, by God’s providence, the sarcophagi did not sink but were carried by the current and floated: Acacius to the town of Askalon, Gregory to Calabria, Lucian to Messina, Papian to the other side of Sicily and Bartholomew to the island of Lipara. By some mysterious revelation Agathon, the Bishop of Lipara, learned of the approaching relics of the holy Apostle Bartholomew to Lipara. Agathon, with the clergy and people, came to the shore to receive the sarcophagus with great joy. On that occasion, many healings of the sick occurred from the relics of the holy apostle. The relics were placed in the church of St. Bartholomew and there they reposed until the time of Theophilus the Iconoclast about the year 839 A.D. and since the Muslims threatened Lipara, the relics of the apostle were translated to Benevento. Thus, the Lord glorified His apostle by miracles both during his life and after his death.

This week’s Scripture question: (answer next week)

When the Risen Jesus appeared to his ten disciples why were the disciples meeting in a locked room?

 

This week’s Scripture fact:

Moses undertakes a very special role as mediator between God and man.  He has direct access to God and is portrayed as an obedient servant who mediates the covenant to the people.  The writer to the Hebrews understands Moses as one who foreshadows the ministry of Jesus, the mediator of the new covenant.

 

Last week’s answer:  In what memorable way did the seven people attempting the exorcism leave the house? They ran out naked and bleeding.

 

See you in Church!

Спаси Вас Господи!                                   May the Lord Save You!
