Because *Grace* came from God. You're falling under ecumenistic thoughts when you think like that. Reconsider what you have written." He was responding to Fr John Shaw who'd written: < > Sigh.

  • We never do anyone any good by watering down the Truth -- that's the route (so avidly embraced, it would seem, by at least a few of our clergy) to Episcopalianism or worse. I've never served a "mixed-marriage," so thank God I'm not implicated in the above remark. :) However, it does seem a disservice to the participants of this list to even hint that a few of "our" clergy are...

  • Luke wrote: "I have heard of cases where presbyters wanted to (re)baptise those coming from other jurisdictions into the ROCOR communion. Assuming this is true, is there ever any justification for it?" If a layman wants to become *really* Orthodox -- and by that I mean REALLY Orthodox -- he can probably, no doubt, find a priest who REALLY IS Orthodox to confer this august status...

  • Reader John Qualls: Would you please elaborate on your last paragraph: Me: "Finally, I get the impression that *most* of the clergy, especially those of Russian descent, do not participate in these discussion lists. Yet in my dealings with them, there seems to be an openness that is hard for a Convert to understand." Me too: I'm often prone to reactionary tendencies. Most cradle...

  • Dear Theodora, I was not trying to score. Rather, I was addressing a few points that the Reader had made. Perhaps it is bad manners or laziness on my part, but I do not *always* address Readers & Subdeacons with their "title" even within my own parish. I meant no disrespect and am certainly not interested in points. Be that as it may, I stand duly corrected. BTW, did you get snow...

  • Squalid curiosity tempted me to go to post #6481 and read the responses as John Qualls had suggested. Though there're many and multiple responses, some ubiquitous posters are probably not even members or friends of the ROCOR. There are 525 members of the Synod list and not all of these members (even Clergy in good standing) are allowed to post messages to the Synod list. I imagine...

  • Vladimir Kozyreff wrote: "The disagreement is about whether or not to unite with the MP before it has renounced sergianism (the belief that lies must save the Church in extreme circumstances) and ecumenism (union for the sake of union, the expense of the truth)." A bit of a leap there, Vladimir. I think the issue is over dialogue. There are those who believe that the time has come...

  • Could someone answer a couple questions: when was St. Nektarios glorified ? how long was it after his repose that he was glorified? and, was he glorified by the Greek church? --------------------- From the Preface of _Saint Nektarios - The Saint for Our Century_ by Sotos Chondropoulos: "Saint Nektarios ... was born in Silyvria of Thrace on the 1st of October 1846 ... and gave up...
