First Sunday of Lent. Sunday of Orthodoxy.

March 1. Commemoration of the Holy Woman Martyr Eudocia. Eudocia a nun, lived under Emperor Trajan (98-117) and was martyred at Heliopolis, Lebanon.

Sunday of Orthodoxy. First Sunday of Lent. Sixth Sunday before Easter. The Church proposes on this day that we venerate the holy icons of Christ and of the saints and that we commemorate the Second Ecumenical Council of Nicea (787) which defined the proper doctrine concerning the veneration of images and relics; a veneration that must be clearly distinguished from adoration offered to God alone. Since the days of Constantine the Great, faithful Christians have rendered honor to icons, statues, or images representing Christ, His Mother, or the saints. However, such practices encountered heavy oppisition, particularly on the part of the Jews and Moslems. The Jews regarded them as a grave infraction against the Law of Moses (cf. Exodus 20:4) and the Moslems referred to the Koran, which forbids any representation of God or even of any living creature.
Some misguided people claimed that the veneration of images was a return to paganism. Under the influence of such ideas, Emperor Leo III the Isaurian decreed in the year 726 that the veneration of images be forbidden and ordered all icons destroyed. He was thus called the “iconoclast” or “destroyer of images.” It is only after raging battles between supporters of images and their opponents that in the year 787, the Second Council of Nicea clearly established the distinction between the veneration of images as such and the veneration of the persons they represented. The conflict, however, ended only in 842, under Empress Theodora.
In 843, the Synod of Constantinople instituted for the first Sunday of Lent a special celebration to commemorate the triumph of the Church and called this day the “Sunday of Orthodoxy” or the “Sunday of the True Faith.” Later, and particularly at the Council of Blachernes in 1166, the feast was extended to include the celebration of the triumph of the True Faith over all heresies of the past.
In his writings against those who attack icons, Saint John of Damascus said: “In former times God, who is without form or body, could never be depicted. But now when God is seen in the flesh conversing with men (Baruch 3:38). I make an image of the God whom I see. I do not worship matter; I worship the Creator of matter who became matter for my sake, who willed to take his abode in matter; who worked out my salvation through matter.”

The Bishop’s Appeal will conclude at the end of March. The annual Bishop’s Appeal is an essential way in which our parish fulfills its duty to our larger Melkite family throughout the U.S. Our Father and Shepherd, Bishop Nicholas asks every Melkite household in the U.S. to give at least $100-$200 each year to support our Eparchy in America. By contributing to the Appeal, each of us responds to Christ’s call to support our Church and helps to fund its vital works, such as publishing SOPHIA magazine, supporting our seminarians for the Priesthood and Diaconate, providing for our elderly priests, teaching the Faith to our children and young adults, and establishing and supporting new missions and outreaches. Those who give a gift of $1000 or more will be automatically enrolled in the Order of Saint Nicholas, the charitable society of our Eparchy.
Our goal is 100% participation for our parish. Please send your gift today. May God bless you for your generosity. So far 16 families have donated $14,000 of our $19,000 goal. If you did not receive a letter you may send a check to: Melkite Eparchy of Newton 802 Riffle Camp Road, Woodland Park, NJ 02132 or donate online at: Melkite.org

Hymns: (See our Church’s website for Audio Recordings: holycrossmelkite.org/Melkite-hymns)
Troparion of the resurrection (Tone 5). Let us, O faithful, praise and worship the word, coeternal with the Father and the Spirit, born of the Virgin for our Salvation, for He was pleased to be lifted in the flesh upon the cross, and to endure death, and to raise the dead by His glorious resurrection.
Troparion of the Holy Cross (Tone 4). O Lord, save your people and bless your inheritance. Strengthen our Public Authorities in every good deed and protect your nation with your Cross.
Kondakion of Annunciation (Tone 8). Triumphant leader to you belongs our prize of victory! And since you saved us from adversity, we offer you our thanks. We are your people O mother of God! So, as you have that invincible power, continue to deliver us from danger that we may cry out to you Hail, O Virgin and bride ever pure.

“Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, [2] looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:1-2).

“Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, ‘Follow me.’ [44] Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. [45] Philip found Nathanael, and said to him, ‘We have found him of whom Moses in the law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph’ ” (John 1:43-45).

Holy Cross Melkite Catholic Church Choir. “Sing to the LORD, bless his name; tell of his salvation from day to day” (Psalm 96:2). The choir has a very important role in helping the community lift their hearts up to the Lord during the Sunday Divine Liturgy and other services.
If you would like to stand with the choir on Sunday you must attend the rehearsal at 10:15 a.m. in the children’s room at the back of the Church. When the choir members are not prepared this causes confusion and too many varying voices. Only those who attend the rehearsal will be able to stand and sing with the choir. Everyone is welcome.

“Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain” (Psalm 127:1).

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. In today’s Divine Liturgy the readings speak of the need for turning toward God and for coming together as a community to grow in our Christian life. The Gospel suggests practical tools to do so. The service of Forgiveness Vespers on Monday evening unites us to begin our Lenten efforts as a united family. More priests are needed as shepherds in our parishes to facilitate this growth. Have you noticed any potential candidates for that ministry in your parish? Will you encourage them by prayer and suggestion?

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 men and women to serve our Melkite Catholic 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.

Thomas Aquinas College Summer High School Program for those going into their senior year. Full scholarship available. Sunday, July 12 to Saturday, July 25, 2020 at the Santa Paula campus, 70 miles north of Los Angeles. A full scholarship is available to any Holy Cross parishioner going into their senior High School year. This $975 scholarship covers tuition, housing, meals, books, and organized off campus activities.
The pursuit of wisdom begins with wonder — wonder about the causes and principles of man and nature, and wonder about God, who is the first cause and principle of all things. For two weeks, students from around the country and abroad will delight in spirited conversation, engaging firsthand some of the best works of the past 2,500 years. They will read and discuss texts selected from the masters of the Western intellectual tradition. The program will be centered around the College’s unique Great Books program of Catholic education. The High School Summer Program is a time for forging new friendships, for enjoying the give and take of rational argument, and for pursuing the truth, which civilizes, ennobles, and liberates.
Classes are conducted, like all classes at Thomas Aquinas College, using the Discussion Method, guided by members of the teaching faculty. Class size is limited to 17 students in order to allow each student the opportunity to contribute to the discussions. The location is ideal for recreation of all sorts. In addition to daily sports, occasional movies, and hiking, the program includes excursions to local attractions. Students will visit the Getty Museum, take in a concert at the Hollywood Bowl, and head to Santa Barbara for volleyball on the beach and an exploration of the historic city.
Thomas Aquinas College is genuinely Catholic and has a rich sacramental life. During the Summer Program, Mass will be offered daily and a chaplain will be available on campus at all times. For further information contact Holy Cross Church and review these links:

Epistle of the 1st Sunday of Lent. Hebrews 11:24-26; 32-40; 12:1-2.
Prokimenon (Tone 4): Blessed are you, O Lord, God of our fathers, and your name is worthy of praise and glorious forever.
Stichon: For you are just in all you have done to us, and all your works are true and your ways right.

Reading from the Epistle of St. Paul to the Hebrews.
Brethren, by faith Moses, when he was grown up, denied he was a son of Pharaoh’s daughter choosing to be afflicted with God’s people rather than to have the enjoyment of sin for a time, estimating the indignities suffered by Christ to be of greater value than the Egyptians’ treasures for he was considering the reward. By faith he left Egypt not fearing the king’s wrath: for he persevered as if he were seeing the One who cannot be seen. By faith, he celebrated the Passover and the sprinkling of blood, so that the one who destroyed the first-born might not touch these. By faith, they passed through the Red Sea, as through dry land ― whereas the Egyptians attempting it were swallowed up. By faith, the walls of Jericho fell after people had gone around them for seven days. By faith, Rahab the prostitute who had received the spies in peace did not perish with the unbelievers. And what more shall I say? For time will be too short to speak of Gideon, of Barac, of Samson, of Jephthe, of David and of Samuel and the prophets, who by faith conquered kingdoms, wrought justice, obtained the fulfillment of promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, recovered strength from weakness, became valiant in battle routed foreign armies.
Women had their dead restored to them through resurrection. Others were tortured, refusing to yield for their release, in order to obtain a better resurrection. Others again suffered mockery and blows, even chains and jailing. They were stoned, cut to pieces, put to the question, killed by the sword. They went about in sheepskins and goatskins, destitute, distressed, afflicted (of whom the world was not worthy), wandering in deserts, mountains, caves and holes in the ground. And none of these, despite the positive witnessing of faith, received what was promised, for God had something better in store for us, so that they were not to reach their final perfection without us.

Alleluia (Tone 4): Moses and Aaron were among his priests and Samuel among those who called upon his name.
Stichon: They called upon the Lord, and he answered them; from the pillar of cloud he spoke to them.

Gospel of the 1st Sunday of Lent, John 1:43-51 (Call of Nathanael)
At that time Jesus was about to leave for Galilee, and he found Philip. And Jesus said to him, “Follow me.” Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the town of Andrew and Peter. Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found the one of whom Moses in the Law and the Prophets wrote, Jesus the son of Joseph of Nazareth.” And Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.” Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him and said of him, “Look, a true Israelite in whom there is no guile!” Nathanael said to him, “Where do you know me from?” Jesus answered him and said to him, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.” Nathanael answered him and said, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God, you are King of Israel.” Answering, Jesus said to him, “Because I said to you that I saw you under the fig tree, you believe. Greater things than these shall you see.” And he said to him, “Amen, amen, I say to you, you shall see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.”
