    Greek-English prayer book

    Hello everyone, Are you aware of a bilingual prayer book which uses traditional (Elizabethan-style) English as well as Greek please? I know that Fr Ephrem Lash produced one, but it uses modern English. I would be very interested in one that uses more traditional English than that. Thanks

    Archbishop Demetrios Resigned?

    I wonder if they had inside knowledge? If so, it'll be the first time I start taking that website seriously: its normal modus operandi is spending a totally disproportionate amount of energy chronicling the comings and goings of jurisdictions led by vagante bishops, self-appointed patriarchs and...

    His Holiness Patriarch Kirill met with His Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew today at the Phanar in Istanbul to discuss various issues including the ongoing situation in Ukraine. Sources are stating that Pat. Bartholomew notified Pat. Kirill that he was going to press ahead with the granting of...

    Memory Eternal to Kevin Allen of Ancient Faith Radio

    Memory Eternal! His radio programmes, The Illumined Heart and Ancient Faith Today were a big influence in my journey from evangelicalism to Orthodoxy :)

    In the Tomb for 3 days and 3 nights?

    One explanation I have heard is that this makes sense from a Jewish perspective, since they count days from sunset to sunset "and there was evening and there was morning, the first day..." etc. We believe that Christ died on the Friday afternoon, the first day. He was then buried and was in the...

    I became Orthodox this weekend

    Grateful to be able to say that I was received into the Church this weekend, via baptism. The baptism took place on Saturday in the sea, with another catechumen who had also been inquiring for a similar length of time (approx. 1 year) being baptised at the same time. I received my first...

    Eastern Orthodox perspective on "Felix Culpa" - the 'happy fault' of the Fall

    Just to be clear, I wasn't saying that this particular carol is the best example of this idea, but rather that listening to it was what prompted me to start looking into it. The words "blessed be the time that apple was taken" are quite shocking to a former evangelical who is still in the...

    Eastern Orthodox perspective on "Felix Culpa" - the 'happy fault' of the Fall

    What is the Orthodox perspective on Felix Culpa, the idea that the Fall had some redeemable or fortunate consequences? I was recently reminded of this when I cam across the Christmas carol Adam Lay Ybounden, whose words are: The carol contains the idea that the Theotokos would not have been...

    Orthodox Liturgists Issue a Statement of Support for the Revival of Deaconess

    In a Western context, this has far more to do with feminism than any realistic need.

    Orthodox Liturgists Issue a Statement of Support for the Revival of Deaconess

    Also worth noting that most of the advocates for this are not clergy but lay Orthodox "theologians". From my admittedly limited knowledge of Orthodoxy, there are actually only 3 saints who were given such a sacred title. Finally, just to clarify my earlier post, I do not think the Patriarch of...

    Orthodox Liturgists Issue a Statement of Support for the Revival of Deaconess

    Absolutely no need for it in the West, except to appease secular feminism. There is no pastoral need. If this happens, I expect schism. The liberal schismatics will go the same way as the Anglicans if they don't repent.

    School, health and behavior suffer when children have TV, video games in bedroom

    I wasn't talking about news content for children, I meant that there was a set of cultural values (i.e. liberal, anti-Christian ones) that finds its way into most BBC programming - children's as well as everything else. Thankfully I don't watch live TV whatsoever so have happily unplugged from...

    School, health and behavior suffer when children have TV, video games in bedroom

    :P Well the "BBC Worldview" is present in pretty much of all of the broadcasting, rather than just the news, but yes the news is the most obvious example of their bias
