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.
On Sunday, January 1st, the children of the parish put on a Christmas Pageant following the Divine Liturgy. Afterwards, we enjoyed hearing the youngsters sing carols and perform instrumental pieces in the hall. Christ is born! Glorify Him!
