A Priest's Perspective

Holy Trinity Rector, Very Reverend Marc A. Vranes, returned to Holy Trinity on Sunday, October 22, 2017. He had been absent the previous two weeks, home and rehabilitating, as a result of total right knee replacement surgery. Many thoughts go through one’s mind during this post-surgical time. Following are some thoughts shared by Fr Marc to his church community upon his return.

The Service of Love and the Love of Service
When reading the lives of the saints, it is easy to discern their love for Christ. This passion for the risen Lord led them to participate in his ministry, through acts of service, rooted in kindness. Any service to the church, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, from reading the epistle, to singing, to serving, to even vacuuming the church or lighting candles, is a active ministry, full of grace, only if it is carried out in love, sacrifice, devotion, and steadfastness.

This is the life of the saint; this is a life which is well pleasing to God. Let each one of us emulate this life.

Fr Marc Vranes
