Fathers of the First Six Ecumenical Councils

Saturday, July 26, 2014

In the Ninth Article of the Nicea-Constantinople Symbol of Faith proclaimed by the holy Fathers of the First and Second Ecumenical Councils, we confess our faith in the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. By virtue of the catholic nature of the Church, an Ecumenical Council is the Church's supreme authority, and possesses the competence to resolve major questions of church life. An Ecumenical Council is comprised of archpastors and pastors of the Church, and representatives of all the local Churches, from every land of the oikumene (i.e. from all the whole inhabited world).

On Stewardship and the Orthodox Life - Part 2: Co-Workers With God

Saturday, July 26, 2014

“Honor the LORD with your substance and with the first fruits of all your produce; then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine.” (Proverbs 3:9-10 RSV) Out of His great loving kindness for humanity, our Lord and God, following the Fall of humankind, did not just remove us from the Garden and let us walk about in life on our own. Rather, God’s plan was to enlist us as His co-workers. God could have reached His object of returning sinners to the state in which they were created without our human help. Rather, He gave to each of us a part in that great work. God has given to each human being the means to become the persons we were created to be. He constantly gives us the opportunities, for example, of serving the poor and needy or of speaking out to advance the Kingdom of God in this world. Read more...
