Come on people! It’s a simple thing… everyone wants new icons, now you have an excuse to get new ones. Make room and help a struggling brother all at once. His request is very simple… an icon of Jesus, of the Theotokos and of the Holy Trinity…. He would also very much like an incense burner and a simple hanging vigil lamp, but the icons are the main thing to him right now. Let’s help him get more than the single paper icon he has currently (pictured is his current icon corner - would you be content with this?). Come on guys! Show this brother the kindness and brotherhood of orthodoxy! PM me.

The Communidad de San Antonio is an Eastern Orthodox church · Convent & Monastery in Mexico which aids the people of surrounding Mexican communities by teaching them trades such as sewing, as well as recycling old tires to make footwear. Most importantly however, they create solar energy devices which they use to help the impoverished by enabling them to make use of the suns energy to power electrical appliances, as well as to heat water. The community is composed of monks, many of whom are also scholars in the Aramaic and Syriac languages. Recently, expenses have exceeded their means due to a number of medical concerns that have arisen. One of the monks needs a wheelchair. One of the monks recently fell and had a stroke. Your donation of any amount whatsoever will help enable them to continue purchasing the supplies that they need for the projects that they do with the Mexicans living below the poverty line for the creation of solar systems, to purchase material for clothing etc., as well as see to the physical needs of the monks such as food, medicine and medical equipment. Every donation helps, no matter how small.
Orthodoxy is the only church and the only Truth. Her ecumenical mission cannot be anything else but the complete confession of this Truth. Western Christianity has been deluded by rationalism (Orthologismos) and it has lost the very meaning and the possession of the Divine Mystery, as well as, the full realization of Salvation. I consider this extremely important to have this Truth heard today by using all possible means, since the danger of slipping towards theories of relativism is great, even among the ranks of Orthodox theologians
From the ‘We Demand A Safe Haven To Protect Minorities In Iraq’ protest I went to on 07/09/14
For some reason certain people think that Muslims are completely quiet on what ISIS is doing in Iraq, Syria & elsewhere in the middle east. The picture was taken by the host of the protest
We need more of this.
