    Dont forget!Dont forget!Dont forget!Dont forget! Can you think of a time you left home, and your parents gave you some instructions? Maybe

    you were going off to school, and you heard your

    mother say, And dont forget to Those might

    have been the most important words she told you!

    In todays epistle reading, we hear some of the last

    words Saint Paul said to the early Christians. He was

    giving the Christians in Ephesus some last instruc-

    tions. And dont forget to Saint Paul might have

    said. But what did he tell these Christians? What was

    so important?

    Saint Paul told them, We must support the weak,

    remembering the words of the Lord Jesus, for He Himself said, It is more

    blessed to give than to receive. St. Paul tells the Christians how we must

    help others. We help poor people. We help sick people. We help lonely

    people. We help older people. We help little children. We help sad people.

    Saint Paul reminds us to help the weak, the people who need us!

    After Saint Paul said these things, he was sent off to Jerusalem, where he

    wasnt allowed to teach the new Christians anymore. So, thats why these

    were his last instructions. We are Christians too, so lets remember St.

    Pauls important words. Dont forget to help the weak, the people who

    need us!

    SAINT KALI

    HELPING THE POOR

    Sometimes we hear mes-

    sages more than once, dont we? In todays epistle reading, we hear Saint

    Paul reminding us to help the poor. This

    week we hear about a saint who spent

    her whole life helping the poor. Her life

    is a message to us, too!

    We dont know much about Saint Kali.

    We dont know if she lived 1300 years

    ago or 700 years ago. We do know that

    she lived a very holy life. She tried to be

    like the good Christians who came be-

    fore her. Kali was very rich, but she gave

    away a lot of her money to the poor. She

    invited people who didnt have homes to live in her house. She asked

    God to help her feed the hungry, and He did. When she gave away

    bread to the poor, she never ran out, no matter how much she gave

    away!

    In our Orthodox Church, we have many hymns and songs about the

    saints. The hymn to Saint Kali tells about how much she helped peo-

    ple when she was alive, and about how much she still helps people

    now that she is with Christ in heaven. The hymn tells how Saint Kali

    never gets tired of helping people. Lets ask God to be that way too!

    We celebrate St. Kali on Tuesday, May 22nd (June 4th, OC).

    Kali means good in Greek, Kali means good in Greek, Kali means good in Greek, Kali means good in Greek,

    and that is a good name for her!and that is a good name for her!and that is a good name for her!and that is a good name for her!
