from Magnificat vol 3, n1
Once again we come round to those days when the Church rivets our attention with stark and grueling detail on the events which gave birth to our faith.
We recall Jesus' entry into Jerusalem to the cheers of the happy crowd. With them we sing, "Hosanna to the Son of David." But we know that soon we will join them in shouting: "Crucify Him!"(Read the rest of the article Days of Glory).

Glory to Jesus Christ!
We are a Catholic Monastery of the Byzantine rite, under the jurisdiction of The Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of St. Nicholas in Chicago, and belonging to the Ukrainian Metropoly in the United States of America, which is in union with the Pope of Rome, supreme pastor of the universal Church. We embrace evangelical poverty, chastity, obedience, and stability of life, according to the Rule of Saint Benedict and the traditions of the Christian East.
In our skete at Jacob's Falls, on the shore of Lake Superior in Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula, we devote ourselves to a common life of prayer and work for the praise, love, and service of God and for the upbuilding of His Kingdom through the Arts.
Tropar of the Holy Transfiguration
Holy Transfiguration of Our Lord
You were transfigured on the mountain,
O Christ our God,
revealing as much of your glory to your disciples
as they could behold.
Through the prayers of the Mother of God,
let your everlasting light also shine upon us sinners.
O Giver of Light, glory be to You!
The nations all encompassed me; in the Lord's name I crushed them.
They compassed me, compassed me about; in the Lord's name I crushed them.
They compassed me about like bees; they blazed like a fire among thorns. In the Lord's name I crushed them.
Psalm 117(118) vv. 10-12.
We celebrate in English, using music traditional to the Ukrainian Catholic Church. Weekend services are also open to the public. Please us if you are interested in attending services at other times.
