Troisième dimanche après la Pentecôte
ВІРИТИ ЗНАЧИТЬ БАЧИТИ
Св. Матвій, у сьогоднішній Євангелії, ось так передає нам слова Господа Ісуса: «Око то світильник для тіла. Тож як око твоє буде здорове, то й усе тіло твоє буде світле. А коли б твоє око лихе було, то й усе тіло твоє буде темне. Отож, коли світло, що в тобі, є темрява, то яка ж то велика та темрява!» (6:22-23).
BELIEVING IS SEEING
St. Matthew, in today’s Gospel, gives us Jesus’ words thus: “The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!” (6:22-23).
CROIRE, С’EST VOIR
Saint Matthieu, dans l'Évangile d'aujourd'hui, nous donne les paroles de Jésus ainsi: «L'œil est la lampe du corps. Si ton œil est en bon état, tout ton corps sera éclairé; mais si ton œil est en mauvais état, tout ton corps sera dans les ténèbres. Si donc la lumière qui est en toi est ténèbres, combien seront grandes ces ténèbres!» (6:22-23).

Слава Ісусу Христу!
Glory Be to Jesus Christ!
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

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
