The Inseparable Union of Dogma and Ethos & How Christianity is a Kingdom and Not a Religion

Elder Athanasios Mitilinaios, Excerpt from Lesson 7 on Revelation

Τι μου έκανε εντύπωση στον Γέροντα Εφραίμ Αριζόνας - π. Πέτρος Χιρς

Translation: What Made An Impression On Me In Elder Ephraim of Arizona - Fr. Peter Heers

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