Excerpt from "On the Law of God"

Naturally, one will love one's own family and the relatives he grew up with, most of all, and secondly, the whole country, the people to which one belongs.

This love for homeland is that Christian patriotism which cosmopolitanists so strongly...

Becoming a member of the Body before communing of the Body

+ St. Theophylact of Bulgaria

In agreement with the Patristic Patrum, St. Theophylact of Bulgaria offers us a brightly shinning spiritual gem in his sacred Commentary on the Gospel of St. John that easily refutes the modern-day innovative heresy that claims the Heterodox are members of the One Holy Catholic Apostolic Church and therefore can commune of the Divine and Life-giving Eucharist in the Orthodox Church.

The Saints of Each Generation Form a Kind of Golden Chain

St. Symeon the New Theologian

St. Symeon the New Theologian writes,

"The Saints — those who appear from generation to generation, from time to time, following the Saints who preceded them — become linked with their predecessors through obedience to the divine commandments, and endowed with divine grace, become filled with the same light.

Fr. Ioannis Drongitis on Covidism

Interview in Four Parts

If you are in Fr. Demetrios Carellas’ email group, you will have noticed a four-part presentation of interviews by Fr. Ioannis Drongitis from October 3rd to October 7th.
