5th Sunday of Luke

Masters, Fathers, Mothers, Brothers, and Sisters, Bless!

This Sunday we are reading our Lord's Parable of Lazarus and the Rich Man. I'd like to share this true and terrible corollary from St. Ephrem the Syrian (Commentary of Tatian's Diatessarion 15:12-13) to help us broaden our Lord's teaching to encompass more than than just physical alms.

"We can not hope for pardon at the end unless the fruit of pardon can be seen in us."
- St. Ephrem the Syrian

In Christ,
+ Fr. Noah
