“COME AND SEE” (John 1:46)

Some have asked, why is it so important to bring a guest to Ministry Sunday? The answer is simple. It is a vital part of our Church’s mission of salvation.  Saint John Chrysostom stressed the importance of Church attendance in the late fourth century when he said:

Nothing contributes to a virtuous and moral way of life as does the time you spend here in church.  Nothing can set your lives straight and make them exactly right so much as can your constant attendance at church and your eager attention in listening to what is said here. 

What food is to the body, the teaching of God’s word is to the soul. I beg and entreat you, let us not take such poor care of ourselves; let us prefer the time we spend here in church to any occupation and concern. Even if our earthly blessing be many in number and flow to us from every side, they do not go with us to the life hereafter.”

– St. John Chrysostom
