Fr. Glenn's Sermon for Trinity XXI

Excerpt: Both the woman and the nobleman are presented to us as examples of people who believed that Jesus came to give us the happiness of God. Life bound to Christ and life bound to one another through the Incarnation; abundant life, a common life of intercession first for one another and then for the life of the whole world.

Saints Bio: Saints Crispin & Crispinian, Mm.

Saints Crispin and Crispinian are the French patron saints of cobblers, tanners, and leathers workers. Born to a noble Roman family in the 3rd Century the twin brothers fled persecution and ended up in Soissons in Northern France. There they preached Christ to the Gauls and supported themselves by making shoes at night. Their success in preaching the Gospel enraged the Roman prefect, Rictius Varus, who had them tortured and thrown into a river with millstones tied around their necks. Though they survived that ordeal, Roman authorities had them beheaded in the year 286. You may recall the name, Crispin, from the famous “St. Crispin’s Day Speech” delivered by Henry V just the before the Battle of Agincourt in Shakespeare’s The Life of Henry the Fifth.

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