Christ is risen, indeed He is risen.
Here is the selection of the week:
“Therefore, casting out of our souls all faithlessness, sloth, and hesitation, let us draw near with all our heart, with unhesitating faith and burning desire, like slaves who have been newly purchased with precious blood. In deed, with reverence for the price paid on our behalf, and with love for our Master Who paid it, and as having accepted His love for us, let us recognize that, if He had not wished to save by means of Himself us who have been purchased, He would not have come down to earth, nor would He have been slain for our sake. But, as it is written, He has done this because He wills that all should be saved. Listen to Him say it Himself: ‘I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world’ (Jn. 12:17).” St. Symeon the New Theologian.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO PRAY FOR OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS

Online giving now available for Mother Maria Ministry
CHICAGO, IL [MW Diocese Communications] —The new website for the Mother Maria of Paris Charitable Ministry is now live, thanks to the work of Fr. Joel Wilson. The website can be found at charity.domoca.org.
Perhaps the most important function of the new website is that it allows users to process online donations for the Mother Maria Ministry's fundraising campaigns. Shortly after the website went public, the Mother Maria Ministry received a $1,000 donation to match the Ministry's donation to Orthodox Detroit Outreach of the same amount. Please share the link to the Ministry's fundraising campaigns on your Facebook accounts, in emails, and on social media, to maximize its effectiveness throughout the Diocese of the Midwest.
The new website features ministries in the Diocese of the Midwest as well as in the OCA and in other jurisdictions and pan-Orthodox nonprofits. The site will be a place for parishes and individual Orthodox Christians to share ideas and learn about best practices concerning ministry work. In addition, it will also be a place to learn about the life and work of St. Maria Skobtsova, whose example this ministry seeks to imitate.
If you have any questions or would like your ministry to be highlighted on the website, contact Fr. Jonathan Lincoln at email@example.com
