  • God can relieve us of any suffering, illness, or hardship, if we trust and pray to Him: The 36th Sunday after Pentecost at the Metropolitan Cathedral

    3 February 2019, on the feast of Venerable Maximus the Confessor that fell on the 36th Sunday after Pentecost, Metropolitan Vladimir of Chisinau and Moldova celebrated the Divine Liturgy at the Nativity of the Lord Cathedral in Chisinau.

    Concelebrating to the first hierarch of the Moldovan Church was Bishop Abrosie of Neftekamsk and Oktyabrsk, Vicar Bishop Ioan of Soroca, archpriest Vadim Cheibas, Cathedral Dean, and other clergy.

    Today’s Gospel Reading brings us the story of the healing by Christ of a blind man in Jericho, as related by Holy Apostle Luke:

    Luke 18:35-43

    35 Then it happened, as He was coming near Jericho, that a certain blind man sat by the road begging.
    36 And hearing a multitude passing by, he asked what it meant.
    37 So they told him that Jesus of Nazareth was passing by.
    38 And he cried out, saying, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”
    39 Then those who went before warned him that he should be quiet; but he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”
    40 So Jesus stood still and commanded him to be brought to Him. And when he had come near, He asked him,
    41 saying, “What do you want Me to do for you?” He said, “Lord, that I may receive my sight.”
    42 Then Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has made you well.”
    43 And immediately he received his sight, and followed Him, glorifying God. And all the people, when they saw it, gave praise to God.

    The Gospel teaches us that one’s faith can make him well, and we may receive anything we ask God with faith, when it is useful to us.
