Beguiling and deceptive is the life of the world, fruitless its labor, perilous its delight, poor its riches, delusive its honors, inconstant, insignificant; and woe to those who hope in its seeming goods: because of this many die without repentance. Blessed and most blessed are those who depart from the world and its desires.

Elder Nazarius

In last week’s Gospel the Lord said that it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. What does this mean? And do I have to literally give up all my possessions to enter Heaven?


Fasting is great in theory but it seems practically impossible. What kinds of food can I prepare without meat or dairy products?

On Wednesday, August 6th, the Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord, grapes and various fruits were blessed at the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy.

"The blessing of grapes, as well as other fruits and vegetables on this day is the most beautiful and adequate sign of the final transfiguration of all things in Christ. It signifies the ultimate flowering and fruitfulness of all creation in the paradise of God’s unending Kingdom of Life where all will he transformed by the glory of the Lord." (Volume II - Worship, The Church Year by Fr. Thomas Hopko)

Following the Divine Services a pool party was held for those in attendance and other guests of the church.
