Announcements for September 26 – October 2, 2010

O Apostle of Christ,

Evangelist and divine Teacher,

you were an initiate of ineffable things.

You made teachings plain to the faithful,

as you thundered forth to us:

“In the beginning was the Word!”

Casting aside the words of heretics who said: “He was not.”

You were openly the bosom friend and beloved,

like the prophet Isaiah, and Moses, who saw God.

As you have boldness before Him,

never cease to pray for our souls!
