SPIRITUAL READING

The Chinese Martyrs

Thursday, October 12, 2017

It was June 10, 1900, dozens of Chinese Orthodox Christians had fled for their lives and hid in the home of their priest, Father Mitrophan Tsi-Chung. (who was ordained by St. Nicholas of Japan) A rebellion had broken out in China known as the Boxer Rebellion, an uprising against foreign influence which targeted all foreigners and Chinese converts to Christianity. Armed bands roamed the streets searching for foreigners to kill with the tacit approval of the imperial government. The group surrounded the home of Father Mitrophan and while some Orthodox Christians managed to escape, most of them, including the priest, were stabbed or burned alive. His body was found in his yard under a date tree. Father Mitrophan’s family shared in his witness for Christ: his son Isaiah was beheaded, his wife Matushka Tatiana initially managed to escape but was captured and beheaded on June 12 along with nineteen other Christians. The priest’s eight year old son John was brutally mutilated: his ears, nose and toes were cut off but he survived this ghastly attack. He was seen the next day begging for water. Passersby mocked him and called him a follower of devils. When asked if he was in pain he replied “It does not hurt to suffer for Christ”. The Boxers returned for him and finished him off.

An Orthodox Christian woman named Ia Wang, the head teacher at the Orthodox Mission School, was also taken prisoner on June 10 and was stabbed, beaten and buried alive. A sympathetic neighbor picked up her tortured body and took her to his home where he nursed her back to health. Read more...

On Stewardship and the Orthodox Life - Part 152: Bad Excuses (6/25/17)

Sunday, June 25, 2017

"Honor the Lord with your substances 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)

We tend to shy away from a discussion involving money when it comes to stewardship. The reason lies in the fact that the Western church has put such an emphasis on it in America that even the Orthodox Church has adopted the “westernization of stewardship.” We have tried very hard to present the true biblical connotation of stewardship through the Diocesan Stewardship Commission. Stewardship of your treasure/wealth is an important factor in the church. Without it, the church cannot pay the mortgage, priest salary, utilities and most importantly, outreach efforts.
