Listening keeps our perspective: God’s Word, our expectations
“No longer shall the dominion of death be able to hold humanity, for Christ went down shattering and destroying its powers” (Kontakion)
In his homily for last Sunday, July 31, 2022, Father François Beyrouti, Ph.D./D.Th., pastor of Holy Cross Melkite Church, entitled his remarks, “Contrast God’s Word With Your Expectations.”
We served the Liturgy for the Eighth Sunday after Pentecost. The Scripture readings:
Epistle: 1 Corinthians 1:10-17
Gospel: Matthew 14:14-22. Feeding the five thousand.
Here at St Ann’s Melkite we are doing work to appreciate on a deeper level God’s living word in our life. Coupled with what Father Dennis said, Father François, complements.
