St. Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians 14:20-25
do not be children in your thinking;
however, in evil be babes,
but in thinking be mature.
In the law it is written,
“By men of strange tongues
and by the lips of foreigners will I speak to this people,
and even then they will not listen to me, says the Lord.”
Thus, tongues are a sign
not for believers but for unbelievers,
while prophecy is not for unbelievers but for believers.
If, therefore, the whole church assembles
and all speak in tongues,
and outsiders or unbelievers enter,
will they not say that you are mad?
But if all prophesy,
and an unbeliever or outsider enters,
he is convicted by all,
he is called to account by all,
the secrets of his heart are disclosed;
and so falling on his face,
he will worship God
and declare that God is really among you.
At that time,
Jesus was going through the grainfields,
his disciples plucked and ate some heads of grain,
rubbing them in their hands.
But some of the Pharisees said,
“Why are you doing what is not lawful to do on the sabbath?”
And Jesus answered,
“Have you not read what David did when he was hungry,
he and those who were with him:
how he entered the house of God,
and took and ate the bread of the Presence,
which it is not lawful for any but the priests to eat,
and also gave it to those with him?”
And he said to them,
“The Son of man is lord of the sabbath.”
On another sabbath,
when he entered the synagogue and taught,
a man was there whose right hand was withered.
And the scribes and the Pharisees watched him,
to see whether he would heal on the sabbath,
so that they might find an accusation against him.
But he knew their thoughts,
and he said to the man who had the withered hand,
“Come and stand here.”
And he rose and stood there.
And Jesus said to them,
“I ask you, is it lawful on the sabbath to do good
or to do harm, to save life or to destroy it?”
And he looked around on them all,
and said to him, “Stretch out your hand.”
And he did so,
and his hand was restored.
Saints & Feasts:
Venerable Euthymius the New of Thessalonica, and Monk of Mt Athos
Saint Euthymius the New of Thessalonica and Mt Athos, in the world was named Nicetas, and he was a native of the city of Ancyra in Galatia. His parents, Epiphanius and Anna, led virtuous Christian lives, and from childhood their son was meek, pious and obedient. At age seven he was left fatherless and he soon became the sole support of his mother in all matters. Having entered military service, Nicetas married, on the insistence of his mother. After the birth of a daughter, he secretly left home in order to enter a monastery. For fifteen years the venerable Euthymius lived the ascetic life on Mount Olympus, where he learned monastic deeds from the Elders.
The monk went to resettle on Mount Athos. On the way he learned that his mother and wife were in good health. He informed them that he had become a monk, and he sent them a cross, calling on them to follow his example. On Mt Athos he was tonsured into the Great Schema and lived for three years in a cave in total silence, struggling with temptations. St Euthymius also lived for a long time as a stylite, not far from Thessalonica, instructing those coming to him for advice and healing the sick.
The monk cleansed his mind and heart to such an extent that he was granted divine visions and revelations. At the command of the Lord, St Euthymius founded two monasteries in 863 on Mount Peristeros, not far from Thessalonica, which he guided for 14 years, with the rank of deacon. In one of these his wife and mother received monastic tonsure. Before his death he settled on Hiera, an island of Mt Athos, where he reposed in 898. His relics were transferred to Thessalonica. St Euthymius is called “the New” to distinguish him from St Euthymius the Great (January 20).
