Asking for your prayers,Patrick Barnes
February 22/March 6, Opening of the Relics of Holy Martyrs at the gate of Eugenius at Constantinople.
- Feasts and Holidays. An Excerpt from With Pain and Love for Contemporary Man, by Blessed Elder Paisios the Athonite (+1994).
- "Liturgy and Spirituality", by Hieromonk [now Bishop] Athanasije JEVTI´C. Chapter 8 from Christ: The Alpha and Omega.
- Theosis: The True Purpose of Human Life, by Archimandrite George, Abbot of the Holy Monastery of St. Gregorios of Mount Athos. Available in nine Languages!
- The Rule of Fasting in the Orthodox Church, by Father Seraphim (Rose) of Platina.
- A Study of English Orthodox Theological Terms Compared to the Original Greek, by the Holy Monastery of St. Gregoriou, Mount Athos.
- Saint Seraphim of Viritsa's Spiritual Testament: "This Was From Me", by Metropolitan Manuel Lemeshevsky. An edifying message for handling trials and temptations.
- Photos from My Recent Pilgrimage to Greece and Romania, by Patrick Barnes. Enjoy hundreds of new photos from Greece and Romania in the newly overhauled OrthodoxInfo Photo Albums on Picasa. Prints of select photos are available for sale. Please inquire if interested.
- Lenten Resources, a superb collection from Monachos.net.
- Letter from Metropolitan Seraphim of Piraeus (Church of Greece) to the Papist Bishop of Syros Island. Translated from the Greek newspaper Orthodox Press, November, 2007. In these confusing times of "ecumenical dialog," thank God for Orthodox Hierarchs who clearly state the Church's position viz-a-viz Roman Catholicism. This Bishop knows and acts upon what another Bishop recently and so eloquently stated: "True love for a Christian is to secure eternal life for one's neighbor, which means you straightforwardly say he is in error, and try to return him to the truth, directing him onto the path of salvation."
- Postcards from Greece, a podcast by Fr. Peter Heers. I highly recommend this superb new podcast on Ancient Faith Radio.
- Ora et Labora. This is the best blog I've seen on Orthodox Christianity. The blogger, a Russian Orthodox clergyman who wishes to remain anonymous, posts frequently and with considerable insight and erudition.
