SUNDAY OF THE JUDGE
 
The fifth Sunday of Great Lent is called the Sunday of the Judge. The message of the day comes from the parable of the widow and the judge. The parable is mentioned in the Gospel of St. Luke (18:1-8) and tells the story of a widow who repeatedly came to a judge who neither feared God nor respected man to plead for her rights. For a long period of time the judge refused to act, but fearing that the woman would continue to return indefinitely, the judge finally granted her request. Thus, he put an end to her continuous appeals and was rid of her. After telling this parable, the Lord assured everyone that if a man as corrupt and unfair as this judge acted in favor of the widow, then God surely would judge in favor of His people and grant the requests of all those who submit to Him through prayer.

This parable exhorts us to always and continually pray as prayer symbolizes the soul’s eternal striving and thirst for God. The parable also contains an appeal from Christ. After telling the parable, Christ says: “But will the Son of Man find faith on earth when He comes?” In His words, Jesus gives a reference to the Second Coming, and sadness and anguish are felt in the Lord’s remark. It is truly painful for the Savior that many people may be subject to a just though cruel judgment instead of becoming the inheritors of the Kingdom of God.

OUTREACH

HELP NEEDED

An elderly parishioner, recovering from heart surgery, is in need of a caregiver in the Lisle/Naperville area. The parishioner is searching for someone who can drive and preferable work full-time. The caregiver may be live-in or live nearby. If you are interested, please contact Linda Althoff, lealthoff@aol.com.

OUTREACH COMMITTEE SUGGESTION
 

Have you ever had a desire to make an impact on others, but weren’t sure how?  Have you ever thought about hosting a Sunday Fellowship Table following a hokehankisd, but didn’t want to do all the preparation? 

The St. James Outreach Committee would like to suggest that you make a $100 donation to FAR.  That $100 would be used to serve a madagh (sacrificial) meal at the soup kitchen for underprivileged Armenians in Armenia. 

If you have questions or need more information, please contact Der Hovhan or check out   www.farusa.org  or www.weareayo.org.
