We were pleased to have a short visit from Fr. Juraj. He was the concelebrating priest for the Sunday Divine Liturgy, as well as a concelebrating priest for the Funeral Mass (Liturgy) of Deacon Don - Deacon Greg's father. Fr Juraj is the Chaplain and Director of Student Life at the Internal Theological Institute (ITI) in Trumau, Austria. He was visiting with his wife and two kids.

MOSAIC OF CHRIST THE TEACHER (PANTOCRATOR).  

In the ancient world, kings, emperors, judges and teachers would sit as they exercised their duties. The Scriptures, in general, see Christ as the promised successor of King David seated on his throne, and specifically, the book of Revelation sees Him and the Father as occupying thrones in heaven.

This dazzling mosaic, made of thousands of pieces of miniature glass tessera, depicts Christ in His glory blessings with His right hand, while holding an ornate Gospel Book in His left. His Holy Gospel contains His words of eternal life that he bequeaths to his Faithful with the instruction, “Go therefore into all nations baptizing them, in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.” We have been saved for a purpose: to be collaborators with our Lord Christ in the salvation of the world.
