St. Symeon the New Theologian

St. Symeon the New Theologian writes,

In such a sequence all of them together form a kind of golden chain, each Saint being a...

Perennialism: The End of Ecumenism & The Transcendent Unity of Religions

Protopresbyter Peter Heers, D.Th, Lecturer in Ecclesiology, Holy Trinity Seminary, Jordanville, NY

Introduction: The Devil’s Dichotomies and Their End

A tried and constant tactic of the enemy of mankind’s salvation in Christ is to limit man’s choices to two options, which are seemingly opposed, and to block from view any other possibility, or rule it out as impractical or untenable. For example, one is either rational or irrational, supra-rational not being an option. Or, one...

The Spirit of Antichrist and the Forerunners of Antichrist

Archbishop Averky of Jordanville

From the second chapter of St. Paul's Second Epistle to the Thessalonians it is clear that the teaching about the Antichrist enters into the content of the earliest apostolic evangelization.

Proper Orthodox Priestly Attire and Appearance According to the Saints

"Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain..." (Prov. 31:30). "Do not be conformed to this world..." (Rom.12:2).

(The following is a conversation between St. Iakavos of Evia and his spiritual child[ren]):

St. Iakavos: "“When we put on the cassock, we begin with the goal of sanctifying our soul. Care is necessary, however. For love of the world’s honor and glory, our egotism can make us lose our soul, rather than sanctify it... Priests shouldn’t cut their hair....

"The priest's cassock is the flag of the Church of our Christ: for this reason we must try hard to honor it, we who wear it, with a holy life, so that those who don't wear it will honor and respect it." - St. Amphilochios of Patmos

— A follow up to a recent post “The Stance of St Iakovos of Euboea on the Reception of Converts and the Baptism of the Heterodox”.

“ Defying the warnings of the police, Bishop Cyril blessed the water...”

St. Cyril of Kazan

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