    Long question about the Eucharist and the Lord's Supper

    Re: the following: I'm not talking about the bread and wine becoming Christ's body and blood in general or at every Eucharist. I know what the Church and what some of the Early Church Fathers teach about that. I'm specifically asking what the Church teaches about what did or did not happen to...

    Frederica on Markides GIFTS OF THE DESERT = "No Jesus"

    An excerpt: That’s why fans of “Mountain of Silence” have been looking forward to “Gifts of the Desert.” But a friend who read an early copy told me, “Somehow, it’s pretty dry.” It took me half the book to figure out what’s causing this dryness: it’s that Jesus is missing...

    One reviewer has this to say about Nicozisin's THE ORTHODOX CHURCH: A WELL-KEPT SECRET (Light + Life): "This book tries to give a bit of everything, but ends up doing nothing very well. First, the book is not very large, which is not a good sign when you are trying to cover two thousand years...

    Where did the "modify" button go? I can't edit/correct my posts anymore.

    Where did the "modify" button go? I can't edit/correct my posts anymore. Did something change? Does it go away after, e.g., 24 hours of the first posting of a message (because I do in fact now see it with this new post - but not with my posts of the last 2 days)?

    Greetings from a serious Orthodox inquirer

    Christ is born! I just discovered this forum yesterday and decided to register. By way of introduction as a potential/prospective convert to Eastern Orthodoxy, here is something I wrote a few months back about how we (my wife and I) became interested in the Orthodox church. It's sort of a...
