Let us pray for the church in Turkey that its political leadership may be enlightened to treat the Christians and the church with a broad mind being true to history where Christianity had its roots since the first century that the rulers of the nation may desist all the policies and actions that will go against human dignity and historically rooted Christian faith. We make this prayer through the intercession of Saint Methodius who died in Istanbul, Capital of Turkey on this day in 847. Amen.
The Eucharist is the miracle in which Christ takes \"the work of human hands\" and presents it to the Father as himself. Our own little bit, our own willingness to search out what we can do, becomes part of that. God is looking for the Andrew in each of us.
