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...

I Have Not Come To Bring Peace, But A Sword

- Archbishop Averky of Jordanville

Archbishop Averky speaks to our times in the context of a frequently neglected saying of Christ. His peace is not the peace of the world, His truth both unites and divides. As he said to His disciples after his tough sayings led many to leave Him: “Do you also want to go away?” Let us respond like the Apostle Peter, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.”

Worse to fear something more than God

Homily on Christ Walking on the Water

by Fr. Peter Heers

On the 9th Sunday after Pentecost 2021, the Holy Church of Christ commemorates the miracle of Christ walking on the water. In this homily, Fr. Peter speaks about the relationship between fear and faith, how St. Peter's example informs us today, the covidism and totalitarianism that are on the rise, and calls us to trust the Lord, the great Pedagoge, first and foremost in everything we do. So much in this...

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.

The first sign, from one hundred years ago, is a sign that was found on the doors of restaurants and stores throughout the United...

Standing in the Temple of Thy Glory, We Think Ourselves to Stand in Heaven, O Theotokos

Archbishop Averky of Jordanville

IN GREAT LENT, we often hear these very significant words in our churches, for they are read at every Matins service.

In truth the church is an earthly heaven,” our great righteous one and man of prayer, the ever-memorable pastor of Kronstadt, Father [now Saint] John emphasizes: “where God’s altar is, where the awesome Mysteries are celebrated, where the Angels minister with...
