By: Parishioners of the Greek Archdiocese in Canada

A response to his blasphemous speech during the Sunday of Orthodoxy

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.

A Return of Evil Signs

by Archpriest Geoffrey Korz; re-post from Orthodox Reflections on October 4, 2021

I would like to speak to you about three signs: one from a hundred years ago, one from ninety years ago, and one from today. These signs are not signs of prophecy – but they are signs of the times. Evil signs.
