Bulletin for Oct. 22, 2017

O Holy Apostle Philip,
Intercede with the merciful God
That he may grant our souls forgiveness of sins.

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

From the Fathers of the Church…

He who lives only to benefit himself confers on the world a benefit when he dies.

St. Jerome

The rich man, in purple splendor, is not accused of being greedy or of carrying off the property of another, or of committing adultery, or, in fact, of any wrongdoing. The evil alone of which he is guilty is pride. Most wretched of men, you see a member of your own body lying there outside at your gate, and have you no compassion? If the laws of God mean nothing to you, at least take pity on your own situation and be in fear, for perhaps you might become like him. Give what you waste to your own member. I am not telling you to throw away your wealth. What you throw out, the crumbs from your table, offer as alms.

· Last Sunday, 74 souls came to pray at St. Philip’s, our tithes to the Lord were $, donations $, candles $, Clergy Medical $. Thank you for supporting our church, may God bless you abundantly for your generosity. Please consider making St. Philip’s parish a part of your estate planning.
