GUARDING THAT “SECRET LUMINOUS PLACE”

October 26th, 2020|

Our Gospel reading for the 6th Sunday of St. Luke (Luke 8:26-39) faces us, once again, with the enigmatic reality of “demonic possession.” In current terms, we are talking about evil and its potentially ominous presence in the world and yes, in the human heart.  Evil, in this sense, is [...]

THE “DYNAMIC” APOSTLE OF MERCY

October 26th, 2020|

When we describe a person as ‘dynamic’ we often mean that they are “energetic, hardworking, and even forceful.” It is like they give off an “electrical charge” in their personality. The word dynamic is based on the ancient Greek word ‘dynamis’ that we use in the Divine Liturgy when the [...]

TILLING THE SOIL OF OUR HEARTS
