Fr. Sean's Sermon for Epiphany II



Excerpt: The Epistle readings for the first three weeks in Epiphany all come from Romans 12 and13, where Paul lays out what Christian worship or service, should look like. “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service.” (Rom 12:1 KJV) I want you to realize that this is first and foremost a deeply sacramental statement. Paul is calling us to live Eucharistic lives. Through the power of Jesus Christ, we can now offer our lives as a thankful remembrance to God–this is the type of worship that Adam lost but now we gain through Christ. Paul calls it our “reasonable service.” ...

Saints Bio: St. Agnes, V.M.

Agnes is a Christian martyr who died at Rome around 304 in the persecution of Diocletian which was the last and fiercest of the persecutions of Christianity by the Roman emperors. The anniversary of her martyrdom is observed on 21 January. Her name means “pure” in Greek and “lamb” in Latin. She is said to have been only about twelve or thirteen when she died, and her relics are in St Agnes’ Church in Rome and they back up the assertion. It is said that her execution shocked many Romans and helped bring an end to the persecutions. Some said, “It is contrary to Roman law to put a virgin to death. Our leaders say that it is necessary to kill Christians in order to preserve the old Roman ways: but they are themselves scorning those ways in the process.” Others said, “Do young girls constitute such a threat to Rome that it is necessary to kill them?” Others said, “If this religion can enable a twelve-year-old girl to meet death without fear, it is worthy of our attention.”

And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. Acts 2:42
