Message From Fr. Timothy - July/August 2019

The Book of Acts [2:1-11] recounts the dramatic outpouring of the Holy Spirit on a tiny group of Christ’s followers gathered in an upper room in Jerusalem. The Holy Spirit came as wind and tongs of fire. The illustration is a painting of Pentecost by El Greco that captures the wonder of the moment. On that day, the Holy Spirit gave the followers of Christ words that moved the hearts of thousands of pilgrims to Jerusalem who came “from every nation under heaven”. Imagine, these pilgrims hearing the message of the Apostles in their own native languages; Greek, Latin, Coptic, Syriac, Arabian, Geez, Armenian and so many other tongues.

 

Saint of the Month - July/August 2019 - Blessed Photis Kontoglou the Iconographer

He is called "Blessed Photis" but has not yet been officially glorified as a saint of the Church. In the twentieth century, he almost singlehandedly restored the practice of true Byzantine icon painting to the Church. He was born on 8 November 1895 at Kydoniai (modern day Ayvalık, Turkey) one of the many Greek villages of Asia Minor.
