3 From whence comes forth the love of God, how it is expressed and what its works are --- "He who maintains in his soul even the slightest mark of hatred for any person whatsoever, on the grounds of some sort of offense, is wholly foreign to the love of God. For the love of God in no way whatever countenances hatred towards our fellow man. Our Lord Himself said: 'If you love Me, keep my commandments' (John 14:15), and 'This is My commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you' (John 15:12). Therefore, anyone who does not love his neighbor has not put into action the commandment of God; and he, once again, who does not put into action this command of God cannot even love God himself." PRAYER CORNER: Your prayers are requested for the health and well being of Florence Elenitsas, Manuel Johns, Marie Klein, James Macek and John Sfikas, Parish Shut-ins, our Armed Forces, those in Prison, who are suffering and in need, those serving the Lord from afar.

6 All Saints Philoptochos Celebrates National Wear Red Day this February with The Heart Truth! Although significant progress has been made in increasing awareness among women that heart disease is their #1 killer, most women fail to make the connection between heart disease risk factors and their personal risk of developing the disease. This disease is largely preventable, but kills more women than all forms of cancer combined. Join The Heart Truth campaign on Sunday, February 24, 2013 National Wear Red Day to help spread the message that "Heart Disease Doesn't Care What You Wear, It's the #1 Killer of Women. " The Heart Truth created and introduced the Red Dress as the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness in 2002 to deliver an urgent wake-up call to American women. The Red Dress reminds women of the need to protect their heart health, and inspires them to take action. On National Wear Red Day, wear a Red Dress, red shirt, or red tie to show your support for women and heart disease awareness. While heart disease risk begins to rise in middle age, heart disease develops over time and can start at a young age, even in the teen years. It's never too early, or too late, to take action to prevent and control the risk factors for heart disease. The Heart Truth is building awareness of women's heart disease and empowering women to reduce and prevent their risk. It is reaching women with important heart health messages in community settings through a diverse network of national and grassroots partner organizations. The Heart Truth campaign is sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in partnership with The Office on Women's Health (OWH) and other groups committed to the health and well-being of women. To find out more about women and heart disease, visit The Heart Truth Web pages at or call the NHLBI Health Information Center at
