All Saints Sunday 2017

For the one who had achieved theosis, they knew the only true joy on earth, and the only way to enter into a deeper relationship with God, was to escape from the prison that was their own false self. Theirs was the way of the cross, and a life of self-denial.

Kneeling Prayers of Holy Pentecost

At the end of the Divine Liturgy, we will pray the Kneeling Vespers of Pentecost.

Before each Kneeling Prayer, the priest will say, "On bended knee let us pray to the Lord." What will we be asking from God in these three prayers?

Prayer #1: We ask God to 1) hear us, 2) accept us, 3) forget our sins, 4) purge our sinful thoughts, 4) entrust us to guardian angel, 5) grant us forgiveness; and 6) cleanse us by the Holy Spirit.

Prayer #2: We ask God to teach us how to pray, and what to pray for.

Prayer #3: For our departed loved ones,in which we ask God to: 1) give rest to their souls, 2) place their names in the Book of Life, and 3) forgive their sins.

-Fr Marc Vranes
