Sunday before Theophany

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

Christ is born! Glorify Him!

St. Nicholai, in his Homily on the Sunday before Theophany (Homilies, vol I, page 71), speaks of Jesus Christ and John the Baptist as examples of humility and obedience and then leaves us with this simple spiritual algorithm.

In Christ,
+ Fr Noah

Men who have no humility or obedience, have no wisdom or love. And he who does not have these does not have God. And he who does not have God does not have himself, but is as if he did not exist, being in darkness and the shadow of death.
-St Nicholai of South Canaan
