Δεύτε λάβετε φως (Ελληνικά): Ο Ιησούς είναι ξεκάθαρος. Δεν γίνεται να εργαζόμαστε σε δύο αφέντες. Η τον Μαμωνά θα υπηρετούμε η τον Θεό. Ο Μαμωνάς έχει ένα ισχυρό όπλο, το χρήμα με το οποίο πιστεύει οτι θα πάρει με το μέρος του πολλούς. Ωστόσο οι πιστοί ξέρουν να διακρίνουν.
Vengan a Recibir la Luz (en Español): En este, el 25o episodio de Vengan a Recibir la Luz, los presentadores Padre Aristidis Arizi y Padre David Wooten abordan el tema importante de la vida espiritual de los cristianos en el mundo. ¿Por qué debemos cultivar una vida espiritual en nuestras vidas cotidianas? ¿Cómo se puede integrar una vida espiritual personal en la vida espiritual de nuestras familias? ¿Qué diferencia hace en las vidas de nuestros hijos si nos enforzamos en una vida espiritual personal? El Salmo 135 «Confesad al Señor» (el polielei), cantado por el coro de la Catedral San Jorge en la Catedral San Jorge en la Ciudad de México, sigue. Finalmente, el Padre Miguel Marcantoni lee las lecturas del episodio (Efesios 2:14-22 y Lucas 12:16-21) y da una sermoneta que se llama, «Inviertan en Ser Ricos delante de Dios».

My spouse and I were married in the Orthodox church, but we would like to do some kind of vow renewal service for our anniversary. What can we do?
