Драга браћо и сестре,

У еванђељу јуче на св. Литургији чусмо о жени која је осамнаест година била држана у грчу и није могла да се усправи (Лк. 13:10-17). Када је дошла у близину Господа и када је чула Његову реч, од те близине је устала ослобођена од своје немоћи. Као што се такво чудо догодило онда тако се догађа и дан данас. Кадгод се причешћујемо ми примимо то чудесно оздрављење у души и телу који са вером прихвата, који верује као она жена, јер је и она оздравила силом Божијом, али и тако што се својом вером приближила Богу. Вера нас приближава Богу, вера отвара све просторе душе за Бога и даје му место. Зато је вера чудотворна, она смешта Бога у биће човеково.

This week:
Dear brothers and sisters,

In the Gospel we heard at Liturgy yesterday we heard about a woman who was bent over and couldn't straighten her back and she was in this condition for eighteen years (Luke 13:10-17).  When she approached the Lord and heard His Word, from that closeness and that Word she was freed of her infirmity. Just as that happened then it happens today as well. Whenever we partake of Holy Communion we receive that miraculous healing in our souls and bodies. Our souls and bodies that approach God in faith just as this woman had faith. For just as she was healed through the power of God it was also through her faith. Faith brings us closer to God. Faith opens our souls for God to enter and abide there. Thus, faith is miraculous for it places God inside of man.

A blessed week to all.
