From Matins for the Meeting of the Lord in the Temple (February 2)

Let us run to the Theotokos in our desire to behold her Son being brought to Simeon. The bodiless powers, looking at Him from on high, were filled with amazement, saying: Now we see wonderful and marvelous things, past all understanding and telling! The One who created Adam is carried as an infant! He who cannot be contained is embraced by the arms of the Elder. He who rests uncircumscribed in the bosom of His Father, is voluntarily circumscribed in flesh, but not in divinity, as the only Lover of mankind!

Fulfilling the written law, the Lover of man is now brought into the Temple! And Simeon receives Him in his ages arms crying aloud: Now let me depart into the blessedness of the world to come, for I have seen today wrapped in mortal flesh, the One who is Lord of Life and Master of death.

Christmas Gifts for the Needy

  • Reconciliation Services is in need of Christmas presents to give to those less fortunate. This year we are helping the women in the SNAP Therapy group. Here is a list of items that you can pick and choose from up to $25.00. You do not need to purchase all items listed.  Please select from these items only: lotion, bath gel, body spray, scarf, Christmas candy, or something encouraging (devotional book, journal, bookmark). ALSO please include a Christmas card in the wrapped box. If you would like to give a gift please take an ornament off of the tree in the social hall. Please return the items by no later than December 13.  RS has asked that we provide 30 wrapped gifts this year. Individual items from the lists can be donated and placed in the marked box if needed, however, a completed package is most helpful and preferred. Your help in making Christmas special for all of these ladies is greatly appreciated!  Any questions, please contact Donna Sheffer at dcssheffer@yahoo.com
