  • I do not know anything specific about Theresa of Calcutta, only that she doesn't belong depicted ikonographically in an Orthodox Church. I was just trying to set a time frame for the age of the artwork in contrast to the "orthodox" history of the monastery - to explain a bit "the frescos they have". Fr.

  • The frescos were completed in the last FIVE YEARS, please explain that. Theresa of Calcutta wasn't dead more than five years ago.It has not been a Franciscan monastery for oh, let's say almost 20 years. This is just a sampling of the bizarre things that are allowed in the OCA.,,,,and some people think this is normal Orthodoxy, and we should be more involved with them. Fr. Basil...

  • Just for your information; the ikons of non-Orthodox personages at New Skete were painted / added to the sanctuary in the last five years, and were written by a ROCOR ikonographer who should have known better - and refused. I'm not saying that all OCA parishes are tainted, or all their clergy are new agers, but many are - and they have always been vocal about their disdain for...

  • I advise you to visit more OCA churches, not just one in upstate NY (which wouldn't happen to be Herkimer, would it). My family was OCA, I went to St. Tikhon's and served 17 years in the New England diocese of the OCA, plus had firsthand knowledge of Eastern Pa, SVS (during its Schmemmanary days) and many parishes in the NY/NJ diocese. I know of what I speak. You have no idea the...

  • I like that last part, become irrelevant. Interesting words. The fact of the matter is there are two OCA's. In the Western diocese you have many people who came out of Russia and settled the west coast much like you do in ROCOR. The OCA on the west coast has kept its Russian roots but then interjected the English language without any great losses of Tradition or compromise of...

  • Yes, the name still applies, as we remain the Synod of Bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church outside Russia, Moscow Patriarchate. The Holy Synod functions as such and is part of the Russian Orthodox Church, and its Holy Synod. Our chief hierarch is the patriarch, and our local chief hierarch is Metropolitan Laurus. Fr.

  • Dear brothers in service to Our Lord Jesus Christ, brothers and sisters in Christ, Please forgive me this intrusion as we conclude the Great Fast and prepare for Great and Holy Week. I returned from Russia last week and obtained a few church items which we are reselling to help support our parish. I do not have a full list of everything at this time, but only wanted to post this...
