Sermon by Fr Chad Hatfield, president of St Vladimir's Seminary, during the Vespers for Sunday of Orthodoxy.
On the First Sunday of Great Lent, March 5, we commemorate the proper veneration of the Holy Icons, the Triumph of Orthodoxy over the iconoclasts (those who wanted to abolish veneration of the icons).
After the Divine Liturgy we will have a procession around the church with the icons. All children (18 years old and younger), who plan to attend the service, should bring icons of their patron saint or any other favorite icon (we will have extra icons for those who forget to bring their own).
Unless otherwise specified, the articles here are posted by Father Aleksey, who has no sense of humor and is extremely straight forward.
