1 Archangel the Archangel Michael Orthodox Church PEACE ON EARTH BEGINS WITH YOU! In his epistle, the Apostle James offers this seemingly simple, yet sage advice, Let every man be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger, for the anger of man does not work the righteousness of God. (St. James 1:19-20) Just think of how many wars, conflicts, disagreements, and world problems could be averted or even alleviated if only people listened more, spoke less and didn t allow anger to take hold of their thoughts and actions. In essence, whenever we become angered, we re pushing God out of our heart and inviting Satan in, and when we do, we not only stand precariously close to our own spiritual demise, but to destroying our relationship with those around us as well. This is exactly what happened in the biblical account of Cain and Abel. Cain s anger became enflamed and in the heat of that moment he ruthlessly killed his brother. Eleanor Roosevelt, the wife of FDR, is quoted as saying: Anger is only one letter short of danger and on a parish level it can herald a crippling, spiritual drain. For just as quickly as anger flares, rage rears its ugly head, often dragging us down to its own level of destruction. This is why God warned Cain, Sin is couching at the door; its desire is for you, but you must master it. (Genesis 4:7) In this New Year, in a world which is so often eclipsed by darkness and evil, let us strive to follow the challenge of St. James to control our tongues, thus becoming doers of the word, and not just hearers (St. James 1:22). By resolving to listen more, talk less, and holding patience we elevate our spiritual life and truly exemplify the Gospel Teachings of Jesus Christ; fulfilling the work of God s righteousness while promoting Peace on earth and good will among men! (St. Luke 2:14) Very Rev. Fr. John Memorich Volume 16 Issue 11 January 2016 January

4 QUESTION: Why does the Psalter Book contain an additional 151 st psalm when the Bible only contains 150? ANSWER: Although this 151 st or so called last psalm is attributed to David, it has never been considered part of the body of the Psalms themselves. Not knowing the exact reason why, my best guess would be that it appears too much like a poem about David himself an autobiographical overview of his life, if you will. Therefore it stands in stark contrast to the other psalms which serve to glorify God, offer thanksgiving, or entreat His mercy. Fr. John STRANGE, BUT TRUE After the Bolshevik Revolution, a Communist patrol in the 1930 s came across a small, isolated Russian Orthodox settlement in the remote outreaches of Siberia. At that time especially, Orthodox Christians were being actively persecuted throughout the Soviet Union by Stalin and the governmental regime and these soldiers wasted no time in trying to round up these practicing Christians. In the process, they shot and killed one man who was working in the village. This prompted his brother, Karp Lykov, to flee into the forest with his wife and two young children. A sad story, perhaps, but nothing unusual until you find out that the Lykov family remained in complete isolation for 42 years! It wasn t until 1978 that surveyors in a helicopter saw in a remote area a clearing that was obviously not of natural origin. Investigation revealed that Karp and his four children (his wife died in 1961) were living in a crude log dwelling. They d had no contact with the outside world since fleeing their village in 1936, and the two youngest children who were born in that wilderness had never seen a human not related to them! Fr. John 4 The Archangel

6 HEALTH HINT 97 JANUARY 2016 Misuse of Antibiotics If you develop the flu, a cold, or a sinus infection this winter, you might be tempted to ask your doctor for an antibiotic. Almost 20% of people who received an antibiotic over the past year said they had asked their doctor for one of those drugs. Antibiotics are not always necessary. Colds and the flu are caused by viruses, and antibiotics do not work against viral infections. It will not make you feel better, and can lead to dangerous allergic reactions and side effects, and make the drugs less likely to work when you really need them. Inappropriate use of antibiotics breeds superbugs --bacteria that cannot be controlled even with multiple drugs. At least 2 million Americans are sickened each year by resistant bacteria. One common infection triggered by antibiotics is C.diff. It can lead to severe diarrhea, and about 14,000 Americans die annually as a result of it. Preventing infections is the best way to avoid antibiotics. Handwashing with soap and water is one of the best methods to stop the spread of infection. Antibacterial hand soaps and cleaners are not necessarily better, and they may promote antibiotic resistance. Also, get the recommended vaccines to protect against the flu and pneumonia as appropriate. When antibiotics are necessary, follow the directions carefully. It is important not to skip doses or stop the medication early, even if you feel better. Do not use leftover antibiotics from a previous prescription to treat a new infection. The drug may not be the right one to treat the current problem. Use creams sparingly. Even antibiotics applied to the skin can lead to resistant bacteria. Over-the-counter ointments containing bacitracin and neomycin (for example, Neosporin), should be used only if dirt remains in a wound after cleaning with soap and water. Antibiotics can save lives, but be aware of side effects that need immediate medical attention: Severe skin rash, hives, swelling of the face, throat, tongue, lips, eyes, hands, feet, ankles or lower legs; difficulty breathing or swallowing; seizures; yellowing of the skin or eyes; unusual bleeding or bruising; darkcolored urine; blisters or peeling of the skin; unusual muscle weakness. Dos and Don ts regarding antibiotics: Antibiotics usually aren t Antibiotics are usually Needed for: Needed for: -colds and runny noses - whooping cough - coughs - strep throat - sinus infections - urinary tract infections - bronchitis - flu - sore throats Happy New Year and stay healthy!!

Yet the greatest "decoration" was the amount of food we collected as part of a Food Drive for St. Herman's House of Hospitality. A literal mountain of food was collected for distribution and it took two vehicles to carry everything to St. Herman's House. This charitable work during this holiday season fullfilled what St. John Chrysostom said, "It is a greater work to feed the hungry than to raise the dead!" 8 The Archangel
