Жінки Мироносиці

The Myrrhbearing Women

Les Femmes Myrrhophores

Жінки Мироносиці
На Tретю Неділю після Великодня Церква згадує ранкову подорож Жінок Мироносиць до гробу Господнього. Ми, що три рази ходимо навколо церкви в ніч на Великдень, представляємо тих блаженних Жінок - а вони представляють Церкву, яка постійно шукає присутності Господа і завжди виходить із темряви у славне світло та радощі!
The Myrrhbearing Women
On the Third Sunday after Pascha the Church remembers the early-morning journey of the Myrrhbearing Women to the tomb of Our Lord. We who walk thrice around the Church on the night of Pascha represent those blessed Women – and they represent the Church which continually seeks the Presence of the Lord and always emerges from darkness into glorious light and joy!
Les Femmes Myrrhophores
Le Troisième Dimanche après Pâques, l'Église nous fait nous souvenir du voyage matinal des Femmes Myrrhophores au tombeau de notre Seigneur. Nous qui faisons trois fois le tour de l'Église dans la nuit de Pâques, nous représentons ces Femmes bénies - et elles représentent l'Église qui cherche constamment la présence du Seigneur et se dégage toujours des ténèbres vers la lumière glorieuse et la joie !

Chancellor's Corner

April 16, 2017

Our Lord has assured us - His people in numerous ways throughout the history of the world that He is with us always ... to the very close of the age! Our Holy Church has instilled in every one of us the conviction that following the ultimate pain and sacrifice of Holy Friday, we are called to enter into the joy not of this world in Our Lord's Glorious Resurrection. I begin with this thought because I / we really need to get this Paschal issue of the Visnyk off to press, and from the office where I now minister ... "we" are most certainly in the world, and are encountering the all too numerous "ways of the world," to which your Office of the Consistory is called to respond in ways that are prudent, "good governance," "best practices," and above all else - God-pleasing and Holy and most beneficial to the whole of the UOCC. As a result, though - the following message will be an only slightly edited and revised message of the "chancellor's" message of Pascha 2016... Read More

March 9, 2017

It is the morning of March 9 as I seek to gather (once again, as quickly as possible,) these too few words so that our (already-delayed,) "double issue" of the current Visnyk can be sent off to the printers, and in turn be sent out to you, the membership / readership, and more significantly, the friends, and supporters and indeed to the "to whom it DOES concern," that there be a Visnyk, and indeed that there be a church, and that there be a "Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Canada," about to celebrate her 100 years of missionary efforts in Canada.

I believe it was Benjamin Franklin, (one of the "founding fathers" of the United States of America,) to whom the following quote has been credited - "I have way too many things to do, and am therefore too busy NOT to pray." (I, tu, am prepared to stand corrected, if this is not right - I don't have the time at this moment to research this, but I invite any readers so inclined to either confirm this, or correct me, please.) In any event, I believe that our beloved UOCC, and especially now, into the Great and Holy Fast ("Velikiy Pist,") collectively has way too much to do, to NOT spend time praying. Indeed, the Great and Holy Fast is a perfect time for us to do this... Read More
