From the Catechetical Sermon of St. John Chrysostom

By descending into Hades, Christ made Hades captive. He enraged it when it tasted of His flesh, as Isaiah cried out when he foretold this. “Hades,” he said “was enraged when it encountered You in the netherworld.” It was enraged, for it was abolished! It was enraged, for it was mocked! It was enraged for it was slain! It was enraged for it was overthrown! It was enraged, for it was fettered in chains! It received a corpse, but encountered God! It received earth, but encountered Heaven! It received what was visible, but stumbled upon the invisible! O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?

On Friday, April 1st, after celebrating the Akathist to the Theotokos, Vicki Jones gave a presentation about the Icon of the Resurrection. We learned about the contrast between East and West in images of Christ’s Resurrection and looked in detail at all the elements in the Icon of Christ’s Descent into Hades, focusing particularly on our icon at Hoy Trinity.

Baking for Olathe Hospice House March 9, 2016

March 9th, 2016

Several parishioners gathered on March 9 to bake casseroles for the Olathe Hospice House.  These will be used to provide much needed nourishment for family members assisting their loved ones who are in hospice care.  Casseroles, cookies and homemade pita bread was made with enough to spare for a lunch together and a meal to take home.  Many thanks to Janet Keeney for organizing this event which blessed those participating and is sure to bless others in the greater Kansas City community.
