Wisdom from the Holy Fathers
It is not necessary to fear weakness, for the Lord came down from Heaven for the weak. If a man recognizes his weakness and repents, the Lord in his mercy will not remember his weaknesses and sins. The most necessary things to fear are devilish pride, vainglory, hostility and condemnation, but weaknesses serve to humble our imagined piety. Don't be surprised that good people who are close to the Church and are deep believers are always heaping abuse when they are wounded. These people are superficial, they have no understanding of the one thing needful, and so outward piety does them no good.

If you are heading out on vacation please do not take a vacation from your financial support of St. Michaels. St Michaels is here even when Her parishioners are away, and She continues to count on Her people for support. If you do travel, also visit the “Orthodoxy in America” website to find an Orthodox Church wherever you are heading. All the canonical Orthodox jurisdictions (OCA, Greek, Antiochian, Serbian, etc.) are listed together on this one helpful site: www.orthodoxyinamerica.org - Check it out! Also, whichever parish you visit on vacation please remember to contact the priest ahead of time to inform him that you would like to come for Holy Communion at the Liturgy. Thank you, God bless your travels and come back safe and sound!
