Mentoring the...

The Whole World Cries Out: Christ is Risen! Truly He is Risen!

The Church of Guatemala participated in Holy Week with reverence and faith. Many people came to receive Holy Unction at the Cathedral of the Annunciation in Aguacate.

This Lent You have the Opportunity to Give...The Opportunity to Transform Lives Through Orthodox Missions
This Lent You have the Opportunity to Give...The Opportunity to Transform Lives Through Orthodox Missions

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,As a priest in the mission field, I have been blessed to perform over 1,000 baptisms. I have held the hand of an old man and cradled the head of an infant as they immerged from the baptismal waters, born anew in Christ. Is there anything more beautiful than knowing that this journey to rebirth has unfolded billions of times over the centuries? By the time this letter reaches you, we will be preparing for Holy Week....

Prayer for Missions

God of truth and love: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Hear our prayer for those who do not know You. That they may come to a saving knowledge of the truth, and that Your Name may be praised among all peoples of the world. Sustain, inspire, and enlighten Your servants who bring them the Gospel. Bring fresh vigor to wavering faith; sustain our faith when it is still fragile. Continually renew missionary zeal in ourselves and in the Church, and raise up new missionaries who will follow You to the ends of the world. Make us witnesses to Your goodness full of love, full of strength, and full of faith for Your glory and the salvation of the entire world. Through the prayers of all the missionary saints, Have mercy on us and save us. Amen.
