Always

Armodoxy for Today
Always

The Evangelist St. Luke records a most remarkable parable of our Lord Jesus Christ, popularly known as “The Prodigal Son.” You may read the story in its entirety in the 15th chapter of the Gospel of St. Luke.  At the end of the story, the father, in justifying his action to love, says, “Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours.” (Luke 15:31)

Part of the process of self-improvement and the process of introspection is to inventory our assets against our liabilities. Liabilities sometimes overwhelm us to the point that we fail to properly access the assets that we have. One of the greatest discoveries that we can make in our lives is the knowledge that we are always in God’s care and always live in God’s grace. Once this discovery is made, the knowledge of always must be assigned to the top position on the asset column of our life-inventory.

The Psalmist writes today’s prayer, “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? One thing have I asked of the Lord, that I will seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple.” (27)

Unique in Every Way

The War on Terror – does Armenian Orthodoxy have something to offer this war, or is it just about the battles? A look at building a mosque at Ground Zero and Mayor Bloomberg’s comments, “No neighborhood in his city is off limits to God’s love.” Where have we heard that before? Looking at the unique and miraculous events of our life – “The Badarak is a ballet danced with God,” says Fr. Vazken as he focuses on the uniqueness inherent in each person and in our God-relation. “No one has ever gone into heaven” says Jesus and the priest responds, “No one is worthy…” to bring balance to ballet of the Passion Play. St. Mary shares her unique role in history with us.
