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

​PROPHECY ABOUT OUR DAYS & THE DAYS AHEAD

— By Elder Ephraim of Philotheou and Arizona

Introduction:

— This prophecy is now circulating widely in Greek and undoubtedly has been told to many. This was told to me by a spiritual son of the elder a day before the elder’s Funeral Service and Burial. (The spiritual son said that the elder told him this in 2008) Thus, I heard it about 3 months before the difficulties he speaks of began and the coronavirus “crisis” exploded. He...

The Bitter Truth

By Blessed Metropolitan Augustinos of Florina

My dear friends, we need to acknowledge the bitter truth: the Orthodox Christians who are struggling to uphold the faith are very few. The vast majority of the faithful are progressively distancing themselves from the Orthodox Faith. I will say something that I have never said before. You may think it egotistical, but I will give you the criterion-the scale, if you will-to weigh today’s bishops,...

Today's Slander of St. Paisios from Those in the Church

The falsehood of a supposed letter from St. Porphyrios chastising St. Paisios

Some have made mention of an alleged letter written by St. Porphyrios to St. Paisios the Athonite. In their ignorance, this non-existent “letter” is used to slander St. Paisios the Athonite. The basic accusation is that St. Paisios was not discerning of the times, but undiscerning and excessive, and even that he was influenced by Protestant publications (!) or talking points to form his teaching on...

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...

Εἰσαγωγή: Οἱ Ἀκρότητες τοῦ Διαβόλου καὶ τὸ Τέλος τους

Δοκιμασμένη καὶ σταθερὴ τακτικὴ τοῦ ἐχθροῦ τῆς ἐν Χριστῷ σωτηρίας τοῦ ἀνθρώπου εἶναι ὁ περιορισμὸς τῶν ἐπιλογῶν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου σὲ δύο μόνο ἐπιλογές, φαινομενικὰ ἀντίθετες, καὶ ὁ ἀποκλεισμὸς καὶ ἡ ἀπόκρυψη κάθε ἄλλης δυνατότητας, ἢ τοὐλάχιστον ἡ ἀπόῤῥιψή της ὡς ἀνέφικτης ἢ ἀστήρικτης. Παραδείγματος χάριν, μπορεῖ νὰ εἶναι κανεὶς...

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. These reveal, to the English-speaking world, this priest who was not known before but we now hear boldly and “as one having authority” (cf. Matthew 7:29) confessing the truth of the spiritual matters on which many...

Listening to an Ancient Faith Radio (AFR) Podcast on the Covid-19 vaccines (Part 1), an interview between Fr. John Parker and Dr. Ryan Sampson Nash, reminded me of that feeling you get when the rug is unexpectedly pulled out from under your feet, only in the...
