Prophet Elias (Elijah) the Tishbite (July 20)

O angelic of body, pillar of the prophets and their cornerstone, the second forerunner of the coming of Christ, the venerable and glorious Elias, thou didst send grace from on high to Elisha to dispel sicknesses and purify lepers.  Wherefore, he overflows with healing to those who honor him. (Apolytikion in Tone 4)

Thought for the Day

Tithing is not just for converts. It is not just for the rich. It is for all of us. It brings us peace, knowing that we have given to God what is rightfully His. It makes our parishes strong by providing the support it needs. It builds up our youth, who see our gratitude to God and are in turn grateful to their parents. Yes, if you really want your children to appreciate what you do for them, try being an example of gratitude. -- His Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH
