The Second Sunday of the Great Lent (Mark 2:1-12)

The Sunday of the Paralytic

By practicing Christian virtues we are trying to have a Christ-like life and to direct ourselves to God. Above anything else, lent is an exercise in overcoming all the obstacles in order to come before the Physician of our souls and bodies – Jesus Christ. Today’s Gospel teaches directly to this important point. This Bible story is about people’s faith and their effort to cross all the barriers to be in front of Christ.

Saint Sava Church in Jackson, California, was blessed on the eve of the Sunday of Orthodoxy in the year of the Lord 2018th with new lights for its wall paintings.

This event coincided with the arrival of Mr. MilojeMilinković, iconographer. In the afternoon hours the church was packed with people eager to ask the iconographer various questions regarding his sacred artwork. Majority of those people were not members of the parish, but they had a great respect and interest in our church art.

Recommending the OrthoPrax App
Bishop Maxim of Serbian Western Diocese

Technology is so omnipresent in the 21st century that we must consider whether it has become the very reality of life itself. It is difficult and arduous to decide how best to consider it both authentically and critically. By using different apps as a tool, people believe that Orthodoxy can become ingrained in our everyday life. At the same time, we know that even the most developed mobile app can’t replace the Church. So what would be an “ideal” ecclesial mobile app? Maybe you can consider OrthoPrax.
