A Reflection for the Passing of Time

There are few experiences more breathtaking to me than show-shoeing under a full moon. I discovered snow-shoeing only a few years ago as I began to realize that my aging joints could no longer withstand the daily pounding of running and the ski slopes filled up with tykes on rocket-powered snow-boards. And so it was in late December three years ago that I found myself slooshing through the field behind our home in Parker, CO across a foot of freshly fallen and untrodden  [Read more...]

The Life of Saint Spyridon, Wonder Worker and Bishop of Tremithus

Translated and adapted (with additional information added) by Mother Cassiana. Saint Spyridon has remained one of the most beloved saints in the Orthodox Church throughout the centuries. Clergy and laity alike can identify with this holy bishop. He was compassionate, but firm and loving; a humble shepherd, bishop, confessor of the faith during times of persecution, and an outstanding teacher of Orthodoxy at the Council of Nicaea.

In one such village, the roof of the little parish church was blown off the building as the communists attempted to destroy  [Read more...]
