Most people go through life wishing
their lives were better in one way or
another. When nothing changes,
they decide life is hard, and success
comes from luck, or connections.
Worship and Community
The loss of faith in God and decline in worship results in
weakening of the social fabric and manifests in broken communities. Children are
born out of wedlock without benefit of a loving family. There is no pride in
work and it is a spiral down. Good luck trying to arrest that causal chain
through rituals without God!
America, Keep Rewarding Your Dissidents
This is the greatness of America and why this
country leads the world: Disagreement and debate are cherished.
Challenging the norms, thinking outside the box, and questioning those

prominence and respect you are given. Society's heroes aren't merely
revolutionaries or political figures, but opinionated, non-conformist
entrepreneurs like Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg. ...

A Visit to

My brother is a Roman Catholic seminarian, and I visited him at Mount

It is our central act of worship and sacrament of
sacraments. It is the perfection of all other sacraments. St
James, half-brother of our Lord and the first bishop of
Jerusalem, was the first to conduct it and form a written
liturgy in AD 37. Syrian Orthodox Church has a wealth of about
80 liturgies. All the liturgies are based on St James liturgy
but nevertheless St James liturgy is the finest, the first and
the most important of all.
Orthodox Christian Life
The spiritual teachings of Eastern Christianity, the rituals and the
traditions of the Orthodox Church, have a transformative power. They
have been repeated on every continent, every year for centuries.

The Message of The Cross
From Jesus' birth and youth, the cross cast its shadow ahead of Him.
The cross is inextricably tied to the Person and the work of the
Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus + Nothing =
Christ offers forgiveness full and free from both our self-righteous
goodness and our unrighteous badness. This is the hardest thing for
us to believe as Christians. We think it's a mark of spiritual
maturity to hang onto our guilt and shame.
The New Year: The Mystery of Time
On New Year's Eve we feel the mystery of time more powerfully than at any other
time. We feel, in other words, that its flow " in which we live and in which
everything constantly vanishes as the 'past' and constantly places us face to
face with the unknown future " essentially contains within itself the main
question that everyone is called to answer with their lives.
Christianity: The Lasting Solution
Christianity is not a quick fix; it's a gradual step-by-step growth.
This is hard for many to accept, including myself. We fall into the
trap of those who claim otherwise.
Everyone faces suffering at different points in their life. The more
important question is how we will react to our sufferings. The
prayers of the Orthodox Church offer answers to this question.
