Fr. Sean's Sermon for Advent IV

Excerpt: Paul urges the Phillipians in the Epistle this morning to take joy in the Lord. To be known by moderation, which in this context means gentleness and orderliness. And instead of thinking only of themselves, he reminds the Philippians to give their prayers and requests to God, turning their anxieties into thanksgivings. This is heavenly living.

Saints Bio: St. Stephen, Protomartyr

St. Stephen’s Day is a sober and timely reminder of the trials of the Christian life. Stephen is the first deacon to proclaim Christ, and also the first to be martyred for that testimony. He was one of the seven deacons appointed by the apostles in the early days of the Church, and is most likely of Hellenistic Jewish descent. Filled with the Holy Spirit and learned in the Scriptures and Jewish history, he gave an apology for the Faith in the midst of a crowd of Jews, contained in the 7th chapter of Acts of the Apostles. Moses and the prophets all pointed to the coming of Jesus Christ as the Redeemer of Israel and of mankind:

“When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth. But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God. Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord, And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man’s feet, whose name was Saul. And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.”

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