Awesome weekend in San Fran with my parish. Mostly for the West Coast Walk for Life, but also got to venerate St. John of Shanghai and San Francisco. And other assorted activities. Check it, if you're inclined.

Why calls for absolute openness are unchristian. #orthodox #orthodoxy #christian #christianity #god
A fundamental assumption of our modern discourse is that dialogue, openness, and a free exchange of ideas are intrinsic goods, without limit or qualification. Closed-mindedness is one of the chief sins in this milieu, and any hint requires swift correction from the appropriate gatekeepers. You even find this same basic assumption in Christian higher learning and among writers who aspire to be viewed as–or at least like to consider themselves–“enl...

What does it mean that Christ is crucified and risen "according to the Scriptures"? Probably not what you think. 

#orthodox  #bible #scripture
In the Nicene Creed, recited by the faithful at every divine liturgy, the Church confesses that Jesus Christ was crucified and rose again “according to the Scriptures.” This language is taken directly from St. Paul in 1 Cor. 15:4, and is thereafter a common expression among the apostolic fathers. Most of us today–somewhat naturally–take this to mean that Christ was crucified and rose again in accord with the account of those events as recorded in...

Superb post on the occasion of the #Dormition.

#orthodox #orthodoxy.
Before God became man, an important sign of God’s presence was the Ark of the Covenant. In the wilderness, Moses placed it in the Holy of Holies. The Israelites crossed the Jordan River with it, and they marched around Jericho with it. King David danced before it. And after King Solomon built...

Reading the Sayings of the Desert Fathers, I came across the following: A hermit saw someone laughing and said to him, ‘We have to render an account of our whole life before heaven and earth, and you can laugh?’ While this probably strikes most as curmudgeonly, for us Christians...

The street preacher may just have you pegged (even if he doesn't know himself at all.)

#orthodox #christian #repentance #humility
A man on a busy street corner holds a sign that reads “Sinners Repent!” There are other signs posted around him with longer bits of text, with messages of a similar tone, warning of the wrath of God and hellfire that awaits those who refuse to repent and believe in Jesus. To help hammer home the message of the …

'Reparative therapy' that works!

#Orthodox #orthodoxy #gay #lgbt
Directly following the astonishing revelation in the Sermon on the Mount (as recorded in St. Matthew’s Gospel, Matt. 5–7), in which Our Lord most fully taught about His Kingdom and its characteristics, He immediately begins to show us the Kingdom he spoke of in action. And what is the...

The Church is a Mystery with institutions, not an institution with Mysteries. This a phrase I once heard on a podcast by Fr. Thomas Hopko, and I can’t think of many phrases this short and as equally profound. To put it in more Western terms, the Church is a sacrament, not an institution with...
