Christos Anesti! Christ is Risen! Tuesday of the Third Week of Pascha: The Paradox of Christian Life »

April 24th, 2018

In Christ, our consciousness expands, our life becomes unlimited. In the commandment ‘Love thy neighbor as thyself, we must understand the words ‘as thyself in this way: every man, the ‘whole Adam’, is my being. The kingdom of Christ, writes Saint Silouan, is to bear in our heart the whole universe and God the Creator Himself. When you pray, pray for each and every one. And add: ‘By their prayers, […]

Christos Anesti! Christ is Risen! Monday of the Third Week of Pascha. Saint George and the Dragon in Iconography. »

April 23rd, 2018

The wealth of images depicted in holy icons is overwhelming, yet one thing appears to unite them all.

Through baptism, we find that our resurrection through repentance is not a denial […]

Christos Anesti! Christ is Risen! Wednesday of the Second Week of Pascha: We Should Follow Him. »

April 18th, 2018

Christ said: ‘I am the Way’. If He is the Way, we should follow Him, not outwardly, but from within. And we must remember that on Golgotha and in Gethsemane He was confronted by the hostility of everyone. Alone. There are times, when the love of Christ touches us that we feel eternity.
