Monastery of the Transfiguration Aug 29, 2014

Fr. Maxym Lysack - How Many Times Should I Forgive

Fr. Lysack speaks about what it really mean to forgive seventy times seven. When Peter asks if he should forgive his brother 7 times, he is really asking, "Should I forgive him many times; should I act justly?" Christ's answer closes any book of ethics as he says that we should forgive "with infinite compassion." Is this even possible for us? What does it mean for us?

Monastery of the Transfiguration Aug 29, 2014

Fr. Maxym Lysack - The Beheading of John the Baptist

Sometimes the Gospel seems to go from tragedy to tragedy. There is great evil in the world, and the beheading of St. John is a horrific thing. We cannot deny that horrible things can happen to saintly people. However, reading other passages of the Gospel, we know that St. John gave his life for Christ. God uses the horrific act to actually limit evil.

Monastery of the Transfiguration Aug 29, 2014

Bishop Michael on the Feast of the Transfiguration

Bishop Michael compares the three disciples' experience on Mount Tabor in the New Testament with the Old Testament experiences of God on various mountains. What is the experience of Mount Tabor for Peter, James, and John? What is it for each of us? It must be more than a yearly pilgrimage to the monastery for the feast day.
