Fr. John came as visiting priest to celebrate the Liturgy on Mothers Day. His sermon addressed the implications of the Gospel of John, chapter 9 in the OCA designated scripture for the day, regarding Jesus healing the man born blind on the Sabbath. The conflict between Jesus and the ecclesiastical leaders bound by tradition and legalism is a constant theme throughout the Gospels. Spirit versus Letter of the Law: what an absurd conflict!!
