Great Vespers for Sunday Divine Liturgy.  "Who is unaware that prayer is a primordial necessity for every soul, wherever that soul may be in our world?  It is a tree of life that nourishes man and makes him incorruptible, because it brings him into communion with the eternal and incorruptible God.  Just as there is no such thing as a human being without a soul, in the same way it is impossible to imagine that one could live in Christ without prayer."  - Elder Aemilianos, The Living EWiness of the Holy Mountain

Sunday Divine Liturgy - The Holy Gospel According to St. Matthew. (Chapter 14:22-34) At that time Jesus made His disciples get into the boat and cross the sea ahead of Him, while He dismissed the crowd. And when He had dismissed the crowd, He went up the mountain alone to pray. And when it was late, He was there alone, but the boat was in the midst of the sea, buffeted by the waves, for the wind was against them. But in the fourth watch of the night Jesus came to them, walking upon the sea. And the disciples, seeing Him walk upon the sea, were greatly alarmed, and exclaimed, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out for fear. Then Jesus immediately spoke to them, saying, “Take courage; it is I, do not be afraid.” But Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is you, order me to come to you over the water.” And He said, “Come.” Then Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water to come to Jesus. But when he saw the strong wind, he was afraid; and as he began to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!” And Jesus at once stretched out His hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” And when they got into the boat, the wind fell. But those who were in the boat came and worshipped Him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.” And crossing over, they came to the land of Gennesaret.
