Full english translation expected 2023, Uncut Mountain Press

Although St. Porphyrios recommended that I should go to Elder Iakovos because I was in a rush to solve the problem of not having a confessor, I went to another man of God, Elder Evmenios Saridakis the Leper (1931-1999) from Ethia in Monofatios, Heraklion, Crete. Elder Evmenios, who himself was a leper, served at the leper colony of...

The Inseparable Union of Dogma and Ethos & How Christianity is a Kingdom and Not a Religion

Elder Athanasios Mitilinaios, Excerpt from Lesson 7 on Revelation

When we talk about theosis, being God-like, becoming one with Christ, it means that we enter the life of God which is the very desire of the Creator before all ages. That is why there is a vast difference between Christianity and the average religion. Unfortunately, today most of us live Christianity as a religion and not as a kingdom, and this presents a number of problematic consequences,...

How God makes Contagious Objects Harmless

By: St. John of Kronstadt

The following divinely-inspired words of wisdom from St. John of Kronstadt bear witness to the devout stance of pious and God-loving Christians who have remained steadfast in defending the Holy Things that have been slandered by the ecclesiastical rationalists of our day for the past two years. As we see from these teachings, it would be utterly inconceivable in the mind of St. John to imagine the...

By: Parishioners of the Greek Archdiocese in Canada

A response to his blasphemous speech during the Sunday of Orthodoxy

Patriotism & War - Metropolitan Philaret of New York

Excerpt from "On the Law of God"

One is tied to this people both by state and civil obligations and by culture and customs. One is bound to one's people, to one's own homeland, and one loves them. This love for homeland is that Christian patriotism which cosmopolitanists so strongly...

Τι μου έκανε εντύπωση στον Γέροντα Εφραίμ Αριζόνας - π. Πέτρος Χιρς

Translation: What Made An Impression On Me In Elder Ephraim of Arizona - Fr. Peter Heers

Μου έκανε εντύπωση πως μιλούσε, πως προσευχόταν... Η αγιότητα του φαινόταν στην κάθε κίνηση του.

Είδα έναν άνθρωπο που είχε κυριέψει τα πάθη του, έναν άνθρωπο ελεύθερο εν Χριστώ.

Ένας άνθρωπος που ήταν μέσα στην χαρά της Αναστάσεως, μέσα στην αιώνια Αγάπη του Θεού. π.

Πέτρος Χιρς για τον Μακαριστό Γέροντα Εφραίμ Αριζόνας
