  • The 16th Sunday after Pentecost, at the Nativity of the Lord Cathedral in Chisinau

    24 September 2016, on the 16th Sunday after Pentecost, His Eminence Metropolitan Vladimir celebrated the Divine Liturgy in the Nativity of the Lord Cathedral in Chisinau.

    The metropolitan was assisted at the service by archpriest Vadim Cheibas, Dean of the Cathedral, and the clergy.

     This Sunday’s Gospel Reading (Matthew 25:14-30) presents the parable of the talents, inviting us to think about wise usage of the gifts granted by the Lord. Those who manage to use their gifts for the salvation of their souls and for the good of other people are called by the Lord wise and faithful servants, and are rewarded with multiplied gifts and honour. On the contrary, the servant who hides his talent in the ground is called wicked and lazy servant, and is punished by the Lord, being cast into outer darkness where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth, while his talent is given to the one who has managed to gain the best profit of his own gifts.

    This parable resembles the account of the lord with the Dreadful Judgment, while the talents are spiritual power, faith, and other gifts with which every human being is endowed to own extent. We need to use our gift in order to enrich our soul and to bring others to salvation, instead of misusing them, hiding our talent in the ground.
