Archpriest Peter Heers

The Kollyvades Fathers and St. Hilarion (Troitsky)

We now come to one of the most crucial time periods and to perhaps the most important patristic interpretation as to the identity and boundaries of the Body of Christ, especially as it pertains to the present challenge to the Church posed by contemporary, syncretistic ecumenism.

In Lesson 7 we will look at the teachings of the so-called...

Orthodox Ecclesiology - Lesson 6: Ss. Gregory Palamas, Nicholas Cabasilas and Mark of Ephesus

Archpriest Peter Heers

We will narrow our examination at this point in order to properly focus and benefit from those theological and historical signposts which are more relevant and beneficial for us in our time.

To this end we have chosen to focus on the other two great “pillars of Orthodoxy,” besides St. Photios the Great (see Lesson 5), namely, St. Gregory Palamas and St. Mark of Ephesus, before we move on, next...

Those Who will Give the Testimony of our Christ will become Awesome Martyrs, Awesome Saints in the other World!

Elder Ephraim of Philotheou and Arizona

April 4, 1990

Philotheou Monastery, Mount Athos

—-

Here in Greece, and even more so abroad, there are people living far away from God, either with heresies, or with satanism, or narcotics, or crime, and what else is there that does not exist abroad. All these people are God’s creatures. All these people are God’s children. All these people need prayer, need help to be enlightened,...

An excerpt is from a book "Russia's Catacomb Saints: Lives of the New Martyrs" by Ivan Andreyev and Fr. Seraphim Rose.

“Christ is Bringing a New Crew to Lead His Ship”

- Saint Porphyrios of Kafsokalyvia

“You will see, my son, that when you pass your 50th year [the Metropolitan is now 58 years old] that God has a plan to change the ‘crew’ of the ship.”

“I said to him, what do you mean, Geronda, the “crew of the ship”?. . .”

“The ship of Christ is the One, Holy, Catholic and...

TRAITORS INSIDE THE CHURCH

~ Elder Athanasios Mytilinaios

...Then as I said, Apostle Peter asked them to be quiet. A very serious problem arises here, which has been troubling me for years now. Since you and I are inside the Church, and we are the Church, this is the problem: The secrecy of the issues of the Church by the faithful.

The Church was once a closed circle. A relic of this closed circle that has remained to this day is when...

THE TEMPTATION COMING UPON THE ENTIRE WORLD

Elder Athanasius Mitilinaios

TRANSCRIPT:

"Then we have a third and final stage of Ecumenism. We said that first is Orthodoxy, then Roman Catholicism, then Protestantism. These will associate themselves with Judaism and Mohamedanism, and all these five joined together, and we will move to the third stage, which is all of the so-called natural...

From the Website: agiapisti.blogspot.com

Should we send our kids to school if they are requiring them to wear masks?

Metropolitan Neophytos of Morphou

Question: They want our kids, from 6 years up, to wear masks in school. What should we do?

Answer: Listen, my brother Aristeides, you who ask this good question: “Our children and our eyes!” [A Greek saying meaning ‘all your attention and care on your kids!’] “Your kids and your eyes!” Both the eyes and the mouth wish for a face that will see God - without a mask. The ancient...

“They thought that by closing the churches they would stop the virus...Lord have mercy!. . .”

Metropolitan Neophytos of Morphou

“They thought that by closing the churches they would stop the virus...Lord have mercy! Is this the first outbreak of a virus? From what I know, during epidemics the churches are open day and night and the Liturgy is offered nonstop. Some have attempted to create doubt about Holy Communion, that it can impart infection. Do you know what is the Divine Liturgy? The Body and Blood of the Resurrected...
