Updates to the Orthodox Christian Information Center
- June 21/July 4, Martyr Julian of Tarsus in Cilicia
Dear Friends of the OCIC,
Today I posted the following articles to the site. I ask for your prayers!
- On the Deadening of the Human Spirit: A Sermon on the Sunday of the Myrhh-Bearing Women, by St. Ignatius Brianchaninov.
- Excerpts from Elder Gervasios (Paraskevopoulos) of Patras, by Hierodeacon Cyril (Kostopoulos). The exemplary life and pastoral work of a parish Priest of our times.
- A Brief History of the Irish Orthodox Church, from the 2003 St. Herman Calendar.
- O Lord, I Have Loved The Beauty of Thy House: How We Should Conduct Ourselves in Church.
- Chapter One from A Tiny Step Away from Deepest Faith, by Marjorie Corbman. The author, a teenager, is a very thoughtful writer with a capability beyond her years. This profound little book describes her search for meaning, which ended with her reception into the Orthodox Church.
- Godparenting 101, from the parish newsletter of St. George Orthodox Church in Eugene, OR.
- We Were Guests at St. Seraphim's. An account of a pilgrimage to Sarov and Diveyevo, by Dr. A. P. Timofievich.
- The Da Vinci Code: Resources for a Proper Understanding.
- You may have noticed the improved "Related Articles" panel when viewing articles. To improve site performance I now pull in the top five Google search results after the page loads. For my fellow geeks out there, this is my attempt to use some of that nifty AJAX technology that is sweeping the Web (though I didn't use the ASP.NET 2.0 "Atlas Framework"I wanted to roll my own).
