Source: The National Herald By Dennis Menos The fact that the Orthodox Church is fragmented and operates without centralized control is well known. The Holy and Great Pan-Orthodox Council held last year in Crete provided ample proof. The Orthodox Church is a consortium of 14 Autocephalous (self- governing) Churches. Each operates independently of the others, but remains in full communion with them on matters of faith, sacraments, and canonical discipline. Governance in each case is by a Primate, selected by the Church’s Synod of Bishops. There is no “head” as such of the Orthodox Church to whom he and the…

Source: OINOSConsulting.com by Frank Marangos D.Min., Ed.D. “I am the Lord your God, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt. Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.” Psalms 81:10 Last week, Christians throughout the globe began their respective Paschal journeys. While Catholics marked the official start of their Lenten pilgrimage on Ash Wednesday, Orthodox Christians inaugurated their 40-day preparation for Easter on Clean Monday – a day set aside for “cleaning out” (eliminating) unhealthy food, thoughts, resentments, and habits from their homes, minds, bodies, and souls.  Apart from inviting the faithful to a period of fasting, repentance,…

Source: New Ostrog by Archbishop Lazar Puhalo Today, the Sunday of Orthodoxy, we celebrate more than the “Triumph of the Sacred Icons.” We rejoice in the  redemption of the whole cosmos. We fill our hearts with love and hope in our Saviour Who has restored our wholeness of being, and brought us back to the destiny for which we were created. At the heart of the struggle to restore the use of icons in the Church, after the long and brutal period of iconoclasm (the battle against sacred icons), is the truth of the Incarnation of God the Word, and…

Source: The National Herald Theodoros Kalmoukos There are two types of clergy pastoring at the parishes of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America and as a matter of fact in the parishes of the Orthodox Church throughout the world, the married priests with a wife and children and the celibate priests who usually are holders of the officio of Archimandrite. Let me explain that the Archimandrite is basically the priest monk, in other words the monk who has been ordained a priest, who lives and acts in the world and not in the monastery where he actually belongs. The phenomenon…

Source: Acton Institute by REV. BEN JOHNSON Leaders from the world’s two largest churches say that Christians in the West are facing “unprecedented” hurdles to living out their vocation according to their conscience. A statement from Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Christians says that as traditional Western culture – liberally influenced by Christianity – is replaced with relativistic secularism and radicalized Islam, Christians are facing new barriers to entering whole sectors of the workplace, as well as other forms of hard and soft persecution. A misunderstanding of human dignity, they say, lies at the heart of it all. “In the…

Source: StarTribune.com It comes from the depths of hell to destroy their characters before they can grow into a healthy sense of who they are.  By Johannes L. Jacobse I am old enough to remember the sexual revolution and its dubious promises that once moral restraints on sexual behavior were removed, a new golden era would dawn in which everyone would live happily, carefree and satisfied. It didn’t turn out that way. Today I deal with the destruction that revolution caused and try to bring healing to men damaged by it. I mentor young men, and I see how the…
