Expectations and Just Rewards

On Theologically Thinking, Fr. Athanasios Haros of the Transfiguration Church in Florence, SC talks to us about “Expectations and Just Rewards.” We all need clear expectations in order for us to learn from our mistakes. The Parable of the Last Judgment in the Gospel of Matthew 25:31-46 outlines with clarity how the Lord will judge us. Will we be sheep or goats when the time of judgment arrives? Fortunately for us, it isn’t too late for us to learn from our past mistakes. The coming Great Lent is the perfect opportunity for us to change our ways and live up to the Lord’s expectations.

IT’S TIME TO SPEAK OUT!

Across the world, Christians are suffering for their faith. Attacked by ISIS and harangued by extremism, Christianity is in danger of being eradicated in the lands of its birth. Yet very few people in the West seem to care — or even know!

That’s why we at OCN believe it’s time to speak out. We’ve covered this issue for a long time, but want to dedicate even more resources to raising awareness and spurring action, using our massive social media following. We reach MILLIONS of people per week, and it’s time for collective action.

Please support this effort by giving to our “10 cent per day” campaign. 100% of your gift will go directly to expanding this ministry, 0% to overhead. Together, we can and will make a difference!

— Fr. Christopher T. Metropulos, OCN Executive Director
