Fr. Mike Comer begins his next series of talks on Thursday, Jan. 20. The talks will be held in church at 10:45 am and 6:30 pm to accommodate most schedules. Father will spend 10 weeks reflecting on the Book of Revelation (also known as the Book of the Apocalypse of Saint John). The first week will serve as an introduction to the Book of Revelation, and to what is known as Apocalyptic Literature. This is a highly stylized form of resistance literature that was popular at the time of Jesus, and for a few hundred years before. The sessions are as follows:

Jan. 20   Approaching Apocalyptic Literature
Jan. 27   “Blessed are those who read, and blessed are those who listen.” Introduction and Prologue to the Book of Revelation (Rev.1: 1-20)
Feb. 24    “Whoever has ears to hear ought to hear.” Letters to the Churches (Rev.2: 1-3:22)
Mar. 3   “The Lamb who was slain but who lives.” The Heavenly Liturgy, the Scroll and the Lamb (Rev.4: 1-5:14)
Mar. 10   “Behold a pale horse, his rider was death, and hell followed.” Plagues and Trumpets and Seals (Rev. 6:1-8:13)
Mar. 17   “The abyss is opened, and smoke arose like a furnace.” Woes, Scrolls, Witnesses and Beasts (Rev 9:1-11-19)
Mar. 24   “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the Great.” The Harlot and the Beast (Rev. 17:1-20:15)
Mar. 31   “Behold, I make all things new.” A New Heavens and a New Earth (Rev. 21:1-22:21)

For those who cannot attend, the sessions will be live streamed, and will be posted on the parish website.
