Saint Nicholas Orthodox Church has posted a new item, 'Parable! of the
Resurrection of the Son of the Widow of Nain.'
The Resurrection of the son of the widow of Nain, like most miracles in the NT,
must be read as a parable to receive the full benefit of its instruction. This
miracle is our life in microcosm. We are both the woman and the boy in the
"parable", and the words "Weep Not" do not fully apply to us now, but they will.
In our life we must weep, with purpose and hope, and also "stand still", and
only if we do this, will we receive the much anticipated words of our Savior,
"weep Not". Apologies for the sound quality. The homily was inadvertently
recorded at too low a volume, and the audio was massaged by an incompetent sound
