Reflection on College Conference East 2015 - By Alex Breno

Monday, February 01, 2016

This was my second year at College Conference East and I must say that it was just as incredible, if not more, than last year. Last year, I fully immersed myself in the afterhours singing which is what I wrote about last time. I did the same thing this year and was just as moved as last year, but I was inspired by another aspect of the College Conference experience.

This year, a single event opened my eyes to, now, one of my favorite attributes about our Faith. For the past couple years, Father Mark Leasure has brought the Kardiotissa icon to the retreat, and this year was no different. Read more...

On Stewardship and the Orthodox Life - Part 80: Looking Back

Sunday, February 07, 2016

The Holy Apostle St. Matthew was a rich man. He gained his wealth by means of his work. He was a tax collector, in the employ of the Roman government. He was required to collect taxes from the people in the Roman province of Palestine. The amount of tax that was expected to be paid by the Romans was one amount – the amount of tax collected by the tax collectors was another amount. And the latter amount was higher. In other words, the tax collectors forced people to pay more tax than was required. And the tax collectors pocketed the difference. Tax collectors were cheaters and liars. Matthew the tax collector got rich on his ill-gotten gains. The Holy Apostles Andrew and Peter were brothers. Both of them worked as fishermen.
