Source: Egypt Independent by Taha Sakr Egypt’s main Coptic Church decided on Thursday to suspend holding any conferences and organizing the church-sponsored trips to monasteries, Coptic Orthodox Church Head Bolus Hailm said. Halim told Egypt Independent that the decision came following consultations with the Interior Ministry, which recommended the suspension of the aforementioned activities until the end of the month of July. “Due to security concerns raised among churches’ officials against any gatherings of Copts in Egypt, the churches affiliated to the Coptic Orthodox Church consulted the main church to coordinate with the Interior Ministry to undertake any action,” he explained.

Source: National Geographic The manuscript was unearthed by the monastery’s monks who were conducting restorations in the centuries-old library. By Sarah Gibbens PUBLISHED JULY 11, 2017 There’s perhaps no doctor in history more famous than Hippocrates. Many medical students today still swear the ancient doctor’s oath to adhere to ethical medical principles. While the details of his life are murky (it’s even debated whether he wrote the oath or some of the other manuscripts that bear his name), Hippocrates is widely regarded as the “father of Western medicine.” Archaeologists now believe they may have found one of the ancient doctor’s medical recipes…

For the married man, he must work hard to provide the housing and food, and the concern for his children, and work through the stress that arises between husband and wife, and all at the same time,…

According to select eyewitnesses, on the evening of July 4th, 1947, dismembered alien bodies and fragments of a lightweight metallic spacecraft were discovered on…

Source: MYSTAGOGY Let us now turn our gaze from the East to the far West, i.e., to America. About 150 years ago, Orthodox people of every nationality began to come to this New World, first daring individuals, then small groups, until in our days they have reached, by immigration and by birth, a number equal at least to the number of Episcopalians in the United States. The first settlers were very simple people, hard workers, farmers. They were just the kind of people who were authentic bearers of that threefold Christian ideal, i.e., of spiritual vision, of moral discipline and…

Source: Fr Novak’s Blog Dear friends in Christ, Each year the Oxford Dictionary chooses a “Word of the Year.” Last year the Word of the Year was “Post-truth.” Ever hear of that word? I hadn’t. Yet, it was the Word of the Year. According to the folks at the Oxford Dictionary, its use increased by 2000% over the previous year.
