On The Holy Cross - By St. John Chrysostom

Sunday, September 27, 2015

“The Cross of the Lord is unpleasant and sorrowful to the ear, but it consists of joy and gladness. It is the originator not so much of suffering as much as of passionlessness. For Jews the Cross is temptation, for pagans it is madness, but for us believers it reminds us of our salvation. When in church one reads about the Cross and one is reminded of the sufferings on the Cross, the faithful are indignant at the Cross and let out a plaintive wail Read more...

Latest Episode (9/25/15)
#80-  Why Relics?  Why are relics so important in the Church? Saints are sanctified in both body and soul, and in Scripture we see how their bodies continue to be temples of the Holy Spirit even after death. The relics of the martyrs are especially important, from early liturgies in the catacombs to their place in altars today.

On Stewardship and the Orthodox Life - Part 62: No Other Gods

Sunday, October 04, 2015

The Ten Commandments are often the center of controversy in our American society. Due to their nature perceived of as “religious” rules, they are banned from public life: for example, they cannot be displayed in public buildings or on public grounds. This even in a society that proclaims religious freedom. Such publication of the Ten Commandments in public places is outlawed because doing so (according to the lawyers) would “establish” religion and violate the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America. After all, we Americans are free to choose our own religion, or to have no religion at all, or even to speak badly of the religion of someone else without reprisal. But what has been the effect of reducing religion to just another freedom we can choose to exercise or not? These Ten Commandments were given by God to Moses for the purpose of defining the relationship between God and His people (His people meaning everyone; for everyone is created in the image and likeness of God!). Those who choose to live with no relationship with God Read more...
