The Lord Tests the Heart
March 23, 2020
“The crucible is for silver, and the furnace is for gold, but the Lord tests the heart.” As we get tested by the crucible we all face today in the coronavirus, let us take an honest look at ourselves and repent, turning away from all that we have embraced that is superficial and meaningless, and turning toward the Way of the Cross, the Path of Sacrificial Love which leads us to Holy Wisdom.

Seeing the Beauty in Others - The Prodigal Son
February 16, 2020
Unless we look at a person and see the beauty there is in this person, we can contribute nothing to him. One does not help a person by discerning what is wrong, what is ugly, what is distorted. Christ looked at everyone he met and saw the beauty hidden there. Read more »

The Danger of Judging Others
February 09, 2020

Waiting for the Lord
February 02, 2020
We celebrate in the Church today one of the great Feasts of the Church calendar – the feast when the Virgin Mary and Joseph bring the 40-day old infant Jesus into the Temple of Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord.

Stories of the Good and Faithful Steward Challenge
January 26, 2020
The Worcester Telegram and Gazette wrote about our Church, “When it comes to the adage ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive,’ Saints Constantine and Helen Church practices what it preaches.” We put into practice the JOY OF GIVING! We have learned the understanding that WE ARE BLESSED SO THAT WE BLESS OTHERS, so that we share our blessings with others less fortunate! This is the spirit of our Church and we want to cultivate this in all our members. Read more »

Attitude of Gratitude
December 01, 2019
How beautiful it is to live with an attitude of gratitude. If we can maintain such a spirit, it transforms our whole perspective on life. We won’t focus on what we don’t have, or on what others have. Instead, we thank God for each and every blessing, and strive to help those who don’t have what we have! Read more »
