Konevets Icon of the Mother of God

Sunday of the Fathers of the First Six Councils

Indeed heaven and the highest heavens belong to the Lord your God, also the earth with all that is in it. The Lord delighted only in your fathers, to love them; and He chose their descendants after them, you above all peoples, as it is this day... You shall fear the Lord your God; you shall serve Him, and to Him you shall hold fast, and take oaths in His name. He is your praise, and He is your God, who has done for you these great and awesome things which your eyes have seen. (Deuteronomy 14 - 21, read at Vespers)

Just as the covenant between God and the elders and leaders of Israel was meant to be renewed in each generation, so that it would be understood as always contemporary, always personally for them, both for the enjoyment of its promises and blessings, and as a reminder of their responsibilities, so too Christians must understand that the new covenant, that is, our new relationship to God in Christ, must always be renewed and re-affirmed, and not only in and by each generation, but in a constant renewal of our hearts as we pass through this life.

At the heart of this new relationship is love, the call to know and love God as revealed in Christ, a love which is meant to move our hearts and our behavior in our encounter with Him and with one another.

- Fr. Andrew
