October 6th, 2019 – Sixteenth Sunday after Trinity

O LORD, we beseech thee, let thy continual pity cleanse and defend thy Church; and, because it cannot continue in safety without thy succour, preserve it evermore by thy help and goodness; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Habakkuk 1:1-4; 2:1-4; Psalm 37:1-9; 2 Timothy 1:1-14; Luke 17:5-10


“To have faith is to die for Christ and for His commandments; to believe that His death brings life; to regard poverty as wealth, and lowliness and humiliation as true glory; to believe that by not possessing anything, one possesses everything.”

St. Symeon the New Theologian (949-1022 A.D.)
