Feast Day of Saint Arsenios the Cappadocian

Today was the feast day, among others, of Saint Arsenios the Cappadocian, the God-parent of Saint Paisios.

A portion of the relics were brought to Australia by St Paisios and can be found at Evangelismos.

For this special feast day, these relics were made available for venerating, along with his icon, and at the end of the service, Father anointed all the faithful with oil from the Saint's lamp.

 

Apolytikion of St. Arsenios of Cappadocia. Third Tone.

You strived to live a life truly inspired by God,
you became a holy vessel of the Paraclete,
bearer of God, Arsenios,
and you were given the grace to perform miracles,
offering to everyone your quick help,
our holy Father, we plead you,
pray to Jesus Christ our Lord to grant us His grand mercy.

Beautiful Things: An Orthodox Colouring Book for Children
illustrated by Megan Elizabeth Gilbert

The Orthodox Christian experience is infused with beauty. God calls to us through the presence of beautiful things—from the elegant chalice that houses Christ's very body to the icons of beloved saints hanging in our homes. Beautiful Things is a 64-page coloring and activity book for our littlest believers. As they color the Good Shepherd or the Jesus Prayer, they are cultivating their own sensibility to beauty while learning to recognize some of the meaningful symbols, elements, and motifs of the Church.

For ages 3 to 6

Visitors to Perth 1909

We are fortunate in Perth to regularly receive visits from speakers, foreign dignitaries and scholars who address the local Greek community about issues and topics pertaining to Greece – modern and ancient. In the last few months a few such presentations have been delivered. Most recently, Professor Andrew M Chugg delivered an informative and well attended lecture at Leederville TAFE about the death of Alexander the Great. (Professor Chugg’s visit, hosted by the Hellenic Community of WA, the Hellenic Council of WA and the Pan-Macedonian Association of WA, was highlighted in the HCWA e-News.) Such visitations were rare in the pre-1970s era, but not unheard of. Here is an example of an early (maybe earliest) presentation by a visiting academic to the local Greek community.

During May and June 1909 Professor Darnley Naylor of Adelaide University visited Perth and Kalgoorlie for a series of lectures. He was principally here to advocate for the WA University Movement prosecuting their case for a university to be established in Perth. Professor Naylor would appear before a State Royal Commission advocating for a local university. He was lecturer and tutor at Ormond College University of Melbourne, from 1895 to 1906, and was appointed to the Chair of Classics at Adelaide University in February 1907. While here, Professor Naylor presented several public lectures about ancient Greece and Rome. One of these lectures involved a reception organised for him by the local Greek community. The June 12, 1909, Western Mail newspaper article below further explains the event.

Beyond All Ages, Times and Places

In this disposable age there is an obsession for labelling everything 'new.' The word 'new' has become synonymous with the words 'different', 'better' and 'improved.' But the meaning given to the word 'new' equally and correspondingly devalues what is 'old'. Old is rendered redundant because its commercial opportunity has been exhausted.

'New' is the driving force behind fashion which is forever changing so that people remain dissatisfied with what they have.

It is important to remember however, that what the marketplace appears to be dictating merely mirrors the 'wants' and 'wishes' of the people all be it with strong elements of persuasion and manipulation. We contribute to the madness that is out there because of the values we uphold. Human nature is known for its weaknesses and these are exploited to the limit for monetary gain.

A characteristic of 'new' is the strong held view that we must have it 'now'. An integral part of having what is 'new' is the mentality of having it 'now'. The belief that we should have things now encourages impulsive behaviour which is closely related to greed.

The Barn & the Book
by Melinda Johnson

Sam wants to know if animals (especially Saucer!) can speak at midnight on Christmas Eve. Grace and Macrina are competing to write a story, and Elias is losing his patience. Meanwhile, Sister Anna hopes God will rescue her from teaching Sunday school. Christmas is coming, but hearts are full of secrets and frustrations. The Barn and the Book is a story about the traps we build when we try to see in the dark. We tumble into trouble and confusion on our own, but God can steer us clear of our traps and shine His kindly light into our darkness. [Ages 7-12, independent readers; read-aloud ready for all ages!]

 

Shepherding Sam
by Melinda Johnson

Sam’s Aunt Eva says he’s like a tornado—he causes a ruckus everywhere he goes. But Aunt Eva won’t give up on Sam, and neither will Saucer, the monastery’s corgi puppy. Saucer lives at the monastery, but he dreams of herding sheep. With no sheep in his life, Saucer tries to herd everyone else—farm animals, nuns, and especially Sam. Sam doesn’t want to follow anyone, not even a funny puppy. But Saucer knows that if he just keeps trying, he can bring this lonely boy back to the flock.
