St John the Forerunner Monastery is having its annual fundraising dinner:
Celebration of Wine
The 11th annual Celebration of Wine is kicking off at Holy Trinity’s Parish Center on Sunday Sept. 24 with the Wine Appreciation Class, 2-6 pm, taught by Fr. Russell Radoicich. For only $5 anyone can come for the fun tidbits of information and essential methods to test your palate, eyes and nose in appreciating all varieties of wine. Fr. Russell was raised on a California vineyard, is an enologist of 35+ years and loves to impart his knowledge to willing listeners (over 21 years of age, of course).
Then all that new found knowledge can be put to the test on Thursday Oct. 5, 6-9 pm at the Parish Center at the 11th Annual Wine Tasting. $45 tickets bought previously or at the door lets you taste up to 50 different bottles of various types of wine, from champagne to merlot to port, and many others. Plus lots of foods spread throughout the room, from top sirloin bites, a fruit and cheese table, ahi-ahi tuna seared as you wait, cocktail pasties, and more stick-to-your-ribs appetizers, to a fabulous dessert table. It is a jovial evening to meet friends while partaking of good food and even better drinks.
Raffle tickets with two winners each taking home 25 bottles of wine will be offered again, for $25 each. And only 100 tickets will be sold, so the odds are 50 to 1! Winning tickets will be drawn on Sunday Nov. 19 after the Church coffee hour, and winners need not be present to win. Just be sure you phone number is legible on that ticket stub!
Call the Church at (406) 723-7889 if you need tickets and are not already on the wine mailing list. Presales are preferred for planning purposes, but tickets will also be sold at the door on Sunday Sept. 24 ($5) and Thursday Oct. 5 ($45). Raffle tickets ($25) will be sold at both events and until the drawing on Nov. 19.

O Mother who gave Life to us,
petition on our behalf
the Son who appeared from you:
may he remove from us the blows of punishment,
and keep away divisions and disputes.
May he lead us in the path of life in which we journey
at all times.
On your memorial day,
we sing praise to your only Son.Alleluia!
Blessed are you, O Mary,
for God, who feeds all creatures,
was nourished by you
and rested on your breast.
The Son of God was nourished
by a human creature!
He assumed what is ours
and gave us what is his.
On his mother’s memorial let us proclaim:
Glory to you, O Lord.
As dew was falling gently
over the city of Ephesus
Saint John wrote to its people.
He instructed them to celebrate
the memory of the Blessed Mary,
three times each year:
In January, during the time of planting of the seeds;
in May, during the time of harvest;
and in August, during the time of the grapes.
For the mysteries of life are prefigured in these months.
On your memorial day, O Blessed Mary,
angels and mortals are overwhelmed with joy.
The dead rejoice in their tombs
because of the glory in creation.
God will bless
those who celebrate your memory with faith
and pour his mercy upon them.
Who is to see a new ship
sustaining the One who is mighty;
the One who sustains and rules all creation.
Mary bore him, yet he bears all creation.
He nourishes all living creatures,
yet she nourished him with her milk.
He is the Maker of all infants,
yet he dwelt, as an infant, in her womb.
The fiery beings in the heights
sing hymns of praise to him!
(From the Maronite Catholic: Qolo (Hymn) of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Qurbono, The Book of Offering, Maronite Catholic Church | English rendering 1994 | Ancient Maronite )
Shudder, O ye heavens! and, O earth, give ear unto these words: God descended once before for our sake; He descends again today for His Mother.
–from The Lamentations at the Bier of the Mother of God, Tone 5
O thou most Holy Virgin, who knew not wedlock, the heavens rejoice in thy glorious falling asleep, the hosts of angels are glad, and the whole earth crieth out in joy, singing to thee the funeral song, O Mother of the Lord of all, thou who hast delivered human kind from its ancestral condemnation.
–Orthros of the Feast, Tone 4
Thou wast transfigured on the mountain, O Christ God,/ Who didst show Thy glory unto Thy disciples as far as they could bear it,/ May Thine ever-existing light shine forth also upon us sinners/ through the prayers of the Theotokos.// O Bestower of light, glory be to Thee!
Kontakion, idiomelon, in Tone VII —
On the mountain wast Thou transfigured,/ and Thy disciples beheld Thy glory as far as they could bear it, O Christ God;/ that when they would see Thee crucified,/ they would comprehend that Thy suffering was voluntary,// and proclaim to the world that Thou art of a truth the Effulgence of the Father.
Преобразился еси на горе, Христе Боже, показавый учеником Твоим славу Твою, якоже можаху, да возсияет и нам, грешным, Свет Твой присносущный молитвами Богородицы, Светодавче, слава Тебе
Cuando Te transfiguraste, Oh Cristo Dios, en la montaña; Revelaste Tu Gloria a los discípulos según ellos pudieron contemplar. Haz resplandecer Tu Luz Eterna sobre nosotros pecadores; Por las intercesiones de la Madre de Dios; ¡Tú que otorgas la luz, gloria a ti!
ما تجلّيت أيها المسيح الإله في الجبل، أظهرتَ مجدك للتلاميذ حسبما استطاعوا، فأشرق لنا نحن الخطأة نورك الأزلي، بشفاعات والدة الإله، يا مانح النور المجد لك.
Przemieniłeś się na górze Chryste Boże,
ukazując chwałę swoją Twoim uczniom, na ile ujrzeć mogli.
Niech zajaśnieje i nam grzesznym Twoja światłość Wiekuista;
przez modlitwy Bogurodzicy, Światłości dawco, chwała Tobie.
When, O Christ our God, Thou wast transfigured on the mountain, Thou didst reveal Thy glory to Thy Disciples in proportion as they could bear it. Let Thine everlasting light also enlighten us sinners, through the intercessions of the Theotokos, O God Thou Bestower of light, glory to Thee.
Schimbatu-te-ai la faţă în munte, Hristoase Dumnezeule, arătându-le ucenicilor Tăi slava Ta, pe cât li se putea. Srăluceşte şi nouă, păcătoşilor, lumina Ta cea pururea fiitoare, pentru rugăciunile Născătoarei de Dumnezeu, Dătătorule de lumină, slavă Ţie
Μετεμορφώθης ἐν τῷ ὄρει Χριστὲ ὁ Θεός, δείξας τοῖς Μαθηταῖς σου τὴν δόξαν σου, καθὼς ἠδυναντο. Λάμψον καὶ ἡμῖν τοῖς ἁμαρτωλοῖς, τὸ φῶς σου τὸ ἀΐδιον, πρεσβείαις τῆς Θεοτόκου, φωτοδότα δόξα σοι
Preobraziłsia jesi na hore, Christie Boże,
pokazawyj uczenikom Twoim sławu Twoju jakoże możachu:
da wozsijajet i nam hresznym swiet Twoj prisnosuszcznyj,
molitwami Bohorodicy, Swietodawcze, sława Tiebie
