Triumph over Hatred by Love

Has your brother been an occasion of trial for you? Has your annoyance led you to hatred? Do not let yourself be defeated, but triumph over hatred by love. This is the way to do it: by praying to God sincerely for him; by accepting the excuses others make for him or by constituting yourself his defender; by taking responsibility for your trial on yourself and bearing it with courage until the cloud has lifted. Be careful, if you were praising the goodness and proclaiming the virtue of someone yesterday, not to disparage him today as wicked and perverse, just because your affection has turned to aversion. Do not seek by blaming your brother to justify your culpable aversion, but continue faithfully praising him, even if you are overcome with annoyance, and you will soon return to a wholesome charity. Never wound your brother with ambiguous words lest he pay you back in your own coin, and both of you depart from sentiments of charity. But with the frankness of friendship go and reprimand him, and with the causes of trouble removed, you will both be delivered from distress and bitterness. A soul that nourishes hatred against anyone cannot be at peace with God…‘If you do not forgive people their trespasses,’ he says, ‘neither will your Father forgive your trespasses’ (Matthew 6.14). If the other will not make peace with you, you at least for your part must guard yourself from hating him, and pray for him sincerely without speaking ill of him to anyone. The whole purpose of our Lord’s commandments is to rescue the spirit from chaos and hatred and lead it to love of him and love of one’s neighbor. From this springs forth, like a flash of lightning, holy knowledge.


~ Maximus the Confessor Centuries on Charity, IV,22,27,32,35,56


SERVICE SCHEDULE

At the direction of the Archbishop, and following the policies of the State of Minnesota and the Cities of Minneapolis and St. Anthony, it is strongly recommended, whether or vaccinated or not vaccinated, to wear masks at the Cathedral or the Annunciation Chapel. The use of hand sanitizers and social distancing are still considered to be helpful. We are very grateful - before God and to our parish community - for our overall safety and stability through these long, difficult months! We look forward to seeing you!

Activities at the parish center are canceled until further notice, and the parish center is closed. 

Bear one another's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.  (Galatians 6:2)
