I recently came across Paul Ladouceur’s translation of an article by Vladimir Lossky on “The Doctrine of Grace in the Orthodox Church,” published in the St Vladimir’s Theological Quarterly 58, no. 1 (2014). The whole article contains matters of interest to readers here, but I’d ... Keep Reading ›

It’s an old question: Who are funerals for — the living or the departed? If I had to give a quick answer, I would say that funerals are for all concerned, including the departed (in many Christian traditions, we are praying for the departed). But in terms of their impact ... READ MORE ›

I’m getting pretty close to done with my edits for the revised, expanded version of Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy. The final word count will be about 125,000 words, which makes it about 75% larger than the first edition (which was about 72,000 words). Now that I’m ... Keep Reading ›

Thank you, Fr. Andrew, for your meaningful and, most of the time, balanced presentation on various types of belief systems, which are both inside and outside of Christendom. I listen to your podcasts with interest, and often find things that make me think for days and weeks. Thank you for trying your best to keep the balance between presenting specifics of various communities, yet comparing them to the Orthodoxy. I think that Orthodoxy is not completely immune to the problems, which you find in other teachings, and same analysis should be applied to teachings of the Orthodox Church, even though doing so requires much humility even courage. However, I think that's a focus of your other podcast and homilies. Again, many thanks and please continue your work to clear a lot of uncertainty and confusion.

Today I ran across this fascinating piece over at First Things by Richard J. Mouw: “Mormons Approaching Orthodoxy” (“Orthodoxy” here is what we might call “small-O orthodoxy”). In this, Mouw, the former president of Fuller Theological Seminary, makes observations about his relationship with Mormons that ... Keep Reading ›

Every so often I encounter the idea that anyone who wants to be ordained a priest—or, especially, a bishop—never should be. Such a man is probably a control freak, vain, naive, etc. People like that should never be allowed anywhere near the priesthood. St. John Chrysostom’s famous flight from ordination ... READ MORE ›

Does Pascha have to fall after Passover? Is that the real difference between East and West? Nope.
