Bulletin for June 12, 2016


Slava Isusu Christu! Slava i vo viki! + Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory for ever!

From the Fathers of the Church…
St. Irenaeus
There is no coercion with God. He has a good will toward us continually. He gives reliable counsel to humans and angels (who also are rational beings), to whom he has given the power of choice. Those who yield obedience therefore possess what is good freely and justly. It is given by God but preserved by themselves. …The human spirit is possessed of the free will from the beginning, and God is possessed of the free will, in whose likeness humanity was created. Humanity is advised to hold fast to the good and thereby be responsive to God. This refers not only to works but faith as well. God preserved the human will free and under his own self-control … as is shown in Jesus’ word to the centurion: “Go. Be it done for you as you have believed.”
