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...]

On the Tragic Events at Sandy Hook Elementary School Newtown, Connecticut

From His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew (Sunday, December 16, 2012) Today, during the Divine Liturgy our heart and attention were directed in thought and prayer for those who lost their lives at Sandy Hook Elementary School, in Connecticut, USA, especially the tender children and their caring teachers. We stand in silent prayer and tears beside their siblings, parents, and extended family, as well as the community and entire American nation, as we mourn the loss of innocence and extinguishing of dreams.

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. He did not allow his episcopal rank to distance him from the faithful of his diocese,  [Read more...]

For Those Who Love The Beauty Of Thy House

A beautiful story is told of a little village Church in the Russian countryside that was reborn after 70 years of misuse as a garbage dump by the Communists. When the Bolsheviks seized power in 1918 and murdered the Royal Family of Czar Nicholas Romanov they swept through the country destroying, defacing, and -where possible- razing Orthodox Churches to the ground. In one such village, the roof of the little parish church was blown off the building as the communists attempted to destroy  [Read more...]

Was Jesus Married?

This past week, many media outlets including the New York Times, CNN, Fox News, and many others ran a story about a small, incomplete Coptic manuscript fragment, presumably from the fourth century. Much of the media hype appears to be geared to help promote the Smithsonian Channel’s special on the fragment. Unfortunately, many of the media headlines about this manuscript—including the Smithsonian’s—have said “Fragment refers to Jesus’ Wife” or some variant. We know from all the canonical Biblical Gospels, the Epistles of St.  [Read more...]

Train up a child in the way that he should go…

The well-known writer and Cistercian monastic, Fr. Thomas Merton, once wrote that the beginning of the new school year is a time when anything seems possible. The smell of new text books and school supplies is a harbinger of a shift in the season when the long and luxurious days of summer give way to the reemergence of the more structured rhythm of weekly school activities. And now that Presbytera and I no longer have any children in high school we miss the  [Read more...]
