Jesus Heals A Paralytic
“Which is less trouble to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or ‘Stand up and walk’?
“To help you realize that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”
He then said to the paralytic, “Stand up! Roll up your mat, and go home.”
(Matthew 9: 5-6)

This week vigil light is offered to God’s glory by Family of Waselik family for all their beloved deceased.

Every Sunday you can watch the Divine Liturgy live streamed on our parish Facebook page and parish website at 9:00 a.m. in English and 10:30 a.m. in Ukrainian.

One Pair of Hands
by Carroll Roberson

One pair of hands formed the mountains,
One pair of hands formed the sea.
One pair of hands made the sun and the moon,
Every bird, every flower, every tree.
One pair of hands formed the valleys,
The oceans, the rivers and the sand.
Those hands are so strong, so when life goes wrong,
Put your faith into one pair of hands.
One pair of hands healed the sick,
One pair of hands raised the dead.
One pair of hands calmed the raging storm,
And thousands of people were fed.
One pair of hands said “I love you”,
And those hands were nailed to a tree.
Those hands are so strong, so when life goes wrong,
Put your faith into one pair of hands.

“Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you.”
(Psalm 55: 23)
