On Friday, February 24, at 6:00 p.m. we will have a service of prayer (Moleben to the Mother of God and Panachyda) commemorating the Ukrainian War. Our Patriarch, His Beatitude, Sviatoslav declared February 24 as Day of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. It is important we gather in prayer for those who have sacrificed their lives and those who experience the negative and disastrous effects of the War: physical, psychological and spiritual wounds, poverty, hunger, homelessness.

Today, several of our parishioners –with many others from around CT– made the journey to The Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes in Litchfield to join Bishop Paul and several of the clergy to pray for peace in Ukraine.
Here are some action photos.
We can never underestimate prayer wrapped in community.
O Lord our God, look down with mercy on the Ukrainian people. Protect and save them from the unjust aggressors who seek to subdue them. Grant them steadfast trust in your mercy and protection.
O Mother of God, who gave us your miraculous icon at Zarvanytsia, intercede for the Ukrainian people, who run to the shelter of your mercy in their times of need.
O Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us. Grant peace and protection to the people of Ukraine. Give them strength and courage to defend what is good, right, and holy. Keep them safe from harm and provide for all their needs, both temporal and spiritual.
Hear our prayers, O Lord, and deliver us from distress, for You are merciful and compassionate and love mankind.
To You we give glory: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, now and forever and ever. Amen.
The prayer intention of Pope Francis for the month of July:
We pray that today’s families may be accompanied with love, respect and guidance.
May the Holy Family intercede for us.
His Excellency, Bishop Paul Chomnycky, OSBM writes to ask for prayers for Evelyn Moreno
Please be informed that as a result of a very unfortunate accident after a grease fire in the kitchen, Mrs. Evelyn Moreno, wife of Fr. Robert Moreno, sustained severe burns on 40 % of her body. She is presently being taken care of in a special burnt unit in a PA hospital.
We ask for your fervent prayers for Evelyn during this very stressful and painful time, asking that the good Lord keep her in the palm of His hand and the Blessed Mother wrap in her merciful omophor, as she slowly recovers. Please also pray for Fr. Robert and their children in this, their severe family trauma.
До оо. Душпастирів Стемфордської Єпархії
Від Владики Павла Хомницького, ЧСВВ
Повідомляємо, що внаслідок жирового огню в кухні, постраждала поважним попаренням – на 40 % тіла – пані їмость Евелин Моріно, дружина Вс. о. Роберта Моріно. Знаходиться пані їмость тепер у лікарні яка спеціялізується у лікуванні пацієнтів з поважними опіками.
Просимо Ваших молитов за здоров’я пані їмость Евелин, щоб ласкавий Господь тримав її делікатно у своїх обiймах, а Божа Ненька пригортала святим омофором, під час цього дуже тяжкого пережиття. Молімось теж за о. Роберта та їхніх дітей, бо переживають болючу родинну травму.

Are you familiar (at the deepest possible level as able) with sacred Scripture? Daily, it is recommended, to spend time doing lectio divina.
While John Paul is addressing members in consecrated life, the teaching is fitting and prudent for the laity, too.
“As the church’s spiritual tradition teaches, meditation on God’s word, and on the mysteries of Christ in particular, gives rise to fervor in contemplation and the ardor of apostolic activity. Both in contemplative and active religious life, it has always been men and women of prayer, those who truly interpret and put into practice the will of God, who do great works.
“From familiarity with God’s word they draw the light needed for that individual and communal discernment which helps them to seek the ways of the Lord in the signs of the times. In this way they acquire a kind of supernatural intuition which allows them to avoid being conformed to the mentality of this world, but rather to be renewed in their own mind, in order to discern God’s will about what is good, perfect, and pleasing to him (see Romans 12:2).
