Preface to Metaphysics
-Jaques Maritain
Do you think that Maritain was a modernist whose views made Vatican II possible?
And just to be clear, I have no problem with the documents of Vaticatn II themselves, but rather with the way in which the directives wre implemented.

Prayers From the East: Traditions of Eastern Christianity, edited by Richard Marsh. From what I can tell, this book consists of prayers that come from Oriental Orthodox sources (Armenian, Coptic, etc.) I've had it since last Christmas, but am just now getting to it.

Cool. Sounds great. Please let us know how you like it as your progress. I may want to read it myself.

"Fare well to Anatolia" by Dido Sotiriou (in translation, I confess) pub. Kedros, Athens, 1991. "A tale of paradise lost and of shattered innocence: a tragic fresco of the fall of Hellensim in Asia Minor... a perennial bestseller in Greece since it first appeared in 1962."

I'll give a few excerpts and an overview once I'm finished. :)

As for new books being read, I just got these for Christmas from my Father today, and hopefully I'll be able to dig into them starting tonight after Christmas Eve service (if I can resist the temptation to spend all my time on Dragon Age: Origins!)...

Τιμόθεος, how is your parish doing?

Alveus,

    You remember!  Almost everyone is chipping in, and we had at least one month of not losing money, but our Priest is going to take up part-time secular employment and take a large pay cut.  It will not do for long term, and we will unfortunately have less services in the mean time, but it will keep us afloat.  I believe we will pull through though.  

    Thanks everyone for your prayers!

As of late, I have been reading Saint Arsenios the Cappadocian by Elder Paisios which I will probably finish tonight. Next, I'm going to read Seven Pillars of Wisdom by T.E. Lawrence (aka Lawrence of Arabia).

An Agnostic's Apology: And Other Essays by Leslie Stephen. I just got done reading the first essay tonight, An Agnostic's Apology. That's probably the fourth or fifth time I've read it. Parts of it are somewhat bland, parts of it are poorly argued, but some parts really shine. And the last few paragraphs sum up quite well how I often feel. I've never read the rest of the essays in this volume, and I'm looking forward to getting to them.
