February 20th Update on Fr. John's Health
Fr. John was seen by Dr. Kinsella yesterday. She explained the CAT-scan results. Fr. John has 3 fractures of the right radius. Depending on x-ray results next Monday, it will be determined whether wrist surgery will be needed. A new hard cast was applied till next Monday's appointment.
Pray that the fractures will heal without surgery.
Our Archimandrite, Fr. John, is battling several health issues. You can imagine how difficult it will be for a priest not being able to use his right hand for an extensive amount of time.
Please pray for Fr. John. He has been a priest for more than 45 years, and has worked tirelessly for Christ’s holy Church. Show him your kindness and concern, for he has no family but all of you.
Services at Resurrection Church and Skete continue as scheduled, including liturgies on Sundays at 9 am.
One of the most well known psalms is the 90th, beginning with, “He that dwelleth in the help of the Most High”. We read it during the sixth hour,1 at Pannikhidas [services for the dead], and burials. We also read it when we want to protect ourselves with divine help in complex or even dangerous situations. It is used in a similar way in the Judaic tradition. It was read at burials, during the morning prayers, and the Sabbath prayers. This also meant that this psalm was very well known to all the sons of Israel. The psalm is composed in such a way that the words in it come from the instructor, who enumerates to the one he is instructing all the various good things that proceed from hope in God. And the psalm ends with three lines now pronounced by God Himself. The last line sounds like this: “With length of days will I satisfy him, and I will show him My salvation.”
