MISSION DAYS

Beginning on the feast of the Ascension May 13th to Pentecost, May 23rd we will once again pray that the Lord might renew our life through the Holy Spirit. Throughout these ten Mission Days let us pray for our own parish, mission parishes in St. Josaphat Eparchy and our beloved Church in Ukraine. By taking an active role in the spiritual efforts of these ten Mission Days, we are called to better understand that, by their very nature, our parish communities and families (domestic churches) have a missionary character. This missionary spirit is a consequence of the gift of our Baptism, by virtue of which we, as Christians, take upon ourselves the responsibility to believe, live, serve, and share the witness of our faith in Christ, not just among our family members, but with our neighbors, wherever we may live. Thus, the mission of our parish community is to allow our Lord to enter more deeply into our lives, and to carry the Good News beyond our own community, inviting others to partake in the Kingdom of God and praying for them if they do not respond to our invitation.

Sunday of the Samaritan Woman

The fifth Sunday of Pascha is observed in our tradition as the Sunday of the Samaritan Woman. On this day we commemorate the encounter of Jesus with a Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well. The biblical story of this event and the dialogue between Jesus and the woman is found in the Gospel according to St. John. During their exchange Jesus offered the Samaritan woman living water that would forever quench her thirst. This simple and sinful woman accepted the precious gift offered her and came to believe that Jesus was the Christ, the Son of God who was to come. She left her jar at the well and ran to the city, to tell others about her encounter with Jesus. Because of her testimony, many people came to the well to see this possible Messiah. After listening to Jesus they came to believe in him. Like that Samaritan women, all of us Christians, must bring others to Christ. We are called to strive to live out our lives according to the teachings of the Gospel, so that not only by our words, but mainly by our example of life, others may come to know Christ and His Gospel. We are called to share with the world this fountain of living water, which is Christ, and help to quench the thirst of the world
