Holy Cross Melkite Catholic Church Bulletin. Sunday, August 5, 2018.
11th Sunday After Pentecost. The Unforgiving Servant.

August 5. Preparation of the Feast of the Transfiguration; commemoration of the Holy Martyr Eusignius. Eusignius, a general of the Roman Army, was martyred in Antioch, the town of his birth, in the year 362 under the reign of Julian the Apostate.

Thank you to all those who helped prepare for Patriarch Joseph Absi’s Visit. It took a great amount of effort and time to get our church ready for our Patriarch’s visit. We appreciate everyone working together to make this beautiful event possible. Thank you to all those who donated food, money, and their time to organize the complimentary dinner that followed the Divine Liturgy.
Congratulations to the three couples who received the Cross of Jerusalem from Patriarch Joseph for their great dedication and service to Holy Cross Church, to our Melkite Diocese in the United States, and to Catholic charities around the world. We congratulate them and ask the abundance of God’s blessings upon: Peter & Christine Gambino, Saleem & Huda Lahlouh, Simon & Pierrette Semaan, and their families.

Sunday, August 12. Falafel Luncheon. Following the 11 a.m. Divine Liturgy we will be hosting a Falafel Luncheon. Plates are $10 and come with Falafel, Hummus, Tahini Salad, Bread, Soda, and Dessert. Invite your friends and family to join in this delicious luncheon.

This year’s Vacation Bible Camp was a great success. Our theme during our Monday, July 16 – Friday, July 20, 2017 program was “Shipwrecked-Rescued by Jesus.” The children experienced God’s Word in surprising and unforgettable ways. Each day, leaders reinforced one simple Bible truth and encouraged the children to remember and apply the message to real life situations.
This year we had over 25 participants and over 40 volunteers. A special thank you to all our amazing volunteers who helped share God’s word with our children. The program took hundreds of hours to prepare and it could not have been done without your encouragement and support. We are blessed to have such a caring community. May God continue to grant our Church great spiritual growth in the years to come.
Next year’s Vacation Bible Camp theme is “Roar! Life is Wild, God is Good!” and will be filled with great programs, skits, songs, spiritual growth, and a whole lot of fun. We hope to see everyone back next year for another remarkable program.

Listen to Melkite audio links on our parish website at holycrossmelkite.org/Melkite-hymns
We uploaded many Melkite hymns for the Divine Liturgy and other important services. To practice or become more familiar with our beautiful liturgical hymns you can listen or download them by visiting the above link.

Vocation Awareness. Saint Paul realizes that in his ministry he is “sowing spiritual things” for the benefit of the faithful, and that he needs their cooperation to do his work. Jesus, in His ministry, sows the teachings about sharing God’s forgiveness and compassion with others. We still need “sowers of the good seed” as priests in our diocese. Can we, the faithful, pray for such vocations and encourage those who may have received the call?

Vocation View. Saint Paul urges Christian readers to live a life of communion, in mutual love, and in the love that God has given us. Jesus teaches us the importance and implications of that life of loving communion. Who shall preach and teach it to us today? Pray for an increase of vocations to the priesthood and monastic life and encourage possible candidates.

A Prayer for Vocations. O Lord God, in every age, You invite men and women to hear Your call to serve You and the Church. We bow before You now, asking that You call forth more persons to serve our Melkite Church in America. Give us priests, deacons, monks and nuns, who will lead and guide your holy people. By Your will, bless us with vocations so that we continue to be the church which You called us to be, centuries ago. Let all hear Your voice inviting them to care for and serve Your people. Strengthen us in being disciples of Jesus Christ, Your Only-begotten Son and fishers of men. Inspire in us the spirit and pride of Antioch, our holy heritage. We ask You, O Lover of mankind, to raise up men and women who appreciate what they have received from You and who want to be generous in their service, willing to offer their lives and all their gifts, to serve others, to give You glory, thanksgiving and worship, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and always and forever and ever. Amen.

Readings for Sunday, August 5, 2018.
Epistle: 1 Corinthians 9:2-12.
Prokimenon (Tone 2)
My strength and my courage is the Lord, and He has been my Savior.
Stichon: The Lord has chastised me through his teaching, yet He has not delivered me to death.

A Reading from the Epistle of St. Paul to the Corinthians:
Brethren, you are the seal set upon my apostleship in the Lord. My defense against those who question me is this: Have we not a right to eat and to drink? Have we not a right to take around with us a sister woman, as do the other apostles, and the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas? Or is it only Barnabas and I who have not the right of exemption from manual labor? What soldier ever serves at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard and does not eat of its fruit? Who tends the flock and does not drink of the flock’s milk? Do I speak these things on human authority? Or does not the Law also say these things? For it is written in the Law of Moses. Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treads out the grain. (Dt.25:4) Is God concerned about the oxen, or does he say this simply for our sakes? These things were written for us. For he who plows should plow in hope, and he who threshes. In the expectation of partaking of the fruit. If we have sown for you spiritual things, is such an affair if we reap from you material things? If others share in this right over you. Why should it not rather go to us? Yet, we have not used this right, but we bear all our expenses. Lest we be a hindrance to Christ’s Good News.

ALLELUIA (Tone 2)
The Lord shall hear you on the day of distress: the name of the God of Jacob shall defend you.
Stichon: O Lord, save your people and bless your inheritance.

Gospel of the Feast: Matthew 18:23-35.
The Holy Gospel According To St. Matthew the Evangelist.
The Lord told this parable: “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who desired to settle accounts with his servants. And when he had begun the settlement, one was brought to him who owed him millions. And as he had no means of paying, his master ordered him to be sold, with his wife and children and all he had, and payment to be made. But the servant fell down and begged him, saying, ‘Have patience with me and I will pay you all.’ And moved with compassion, the master of that servant released him, and forgave him the debt. But as that servant went out, he met one of his fellow-servants who owed him a small amount, and he laid hold of him and throttled him, saying, ‘Pay what you owe.’ His fellow-servant therefore fell down and began to entreat him, saying, Have patience with me and I will pay you all.’ But he would not; but went away and threw him into prison until he would pay what was due. His fellow-servants therefore, seeing what had happened, were very much saddened, and they went and informed their master of what had taken place. Then his master called him, and said to him, ‘Wicked servant, I forgave you all the debt, because you begged me. Should not you also have had pity on your fellow-servant, even as I had pity on you?’ And his master, being angry, handed him over to the torturers until he would pay all that was due to him. So also my heavenly Father will do to you, if you do not each forgive your brothers from your hearts.”
