Archpastoral Letter for the Nativity 2017/2018

Saturday, January 06, 2018

Dear Beloved Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

As we celebrate this joyous Feast of the Nativity in the flesh of our Lord, God and Saviour Jesus Christ, I wish to share with you one of my favorite Christmas homilies from the Church Fathers concerning this day. St. John Chrysostom spoke on the Incarnation with these words:

“I behold a new and wondrous mystery!

My ears resound to the shepherd’s song, piping no soft melody, but loudly chanting a heavenly hymn!

Happy New Year!

Sunday, January 14, 2018

Happy New Year! On September 1st, Orthodox Christians from around the world who follow the New Calendar ushered in the beginning of yet another ecclesiastical year, a day of joyful celebration and expectation that the Church calls the Indiction. The Indictio, as it is known in Latin, was a Roman imperial decree issued once every fifteen years, which assessed the military taxes to be collected each year during this period. Since Roman soldiers served for a period of fifteen years, after their tour of duty was over, the financial health of the Empire was evaluated and a new decree was issued with the incoming enlistment of new soldiers. Institution of this Distribution, or ??????? (as it was known in the Greek East), was believed by some to have been begun by St. Constantine the Great in the early fourth century A.D., but in all likelihood was started by Augustus Caesar in the century before the birth of Christ, as suggested by a papal bull issued in the year 781 A.D. There were three types of indictions known in the ancient world: (1) the Imperial (Constantinian or Caesarean) indiction, which began on September 24; (2) the papal indiction, which began on January 1; and (3) the Constantinopolitan, or Patriarchal, indiction, which begins on September 1. This third dating is what the Orthodox Church has been celebrating since 1453. Read more...

PANIS' CORNER


The Orthodox Clergy Wife

Wednesday, October 18, 2017

What does it mean to have a wonderful title, and no real job description? The position of the wife of a priest is exactly this. The various languages or every Orthodox country have titles of honor for the priest’s wife. Some might literally be translated as ‘priestess’, while some mean ‘wife of the priest’, and in at least one language — Russian — the priest’s wife is ‘mother’ or ‘little mother’. Read more...
