Brothers and sisters, I beg your forgiveness in that I should have written this letter a long time ago. There is “nothing new under the sun”[i] as the teacher of wisdom tells us. Nevertheless, I have felt an urgency for some time, and it seems that now is the precise time to tell you. I do not seek to rouse in you a sense of fear or anxiety, but rather to contemplate these words and with prayer and fasting decide your role, not only in the future but the now.
The last couple of years have revealed to us that the world and those who are of it have are lovers of self, “covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of…

The opposition we face today comes through open hostility increasingly from without and from within our Church, but more deadly it comes from within ourselves in the form of materialistic so-called comforts and a drugging of our souls in consumer pleasures and fun –those “guilty pleasures” we all tell ourselves we’re entitled to…the ones that draw us into a life of “lies.” The “lies” that the LGBTQ promotors spread through their control over Hollywood and film production; the “lies” these production companies smears across the screen with their new “normalcy.” We watch and are sucked in—consumed –making ourselves “at home” in the world and more excuses for our “passions” and their fulfillment.
Bl. Seraphim counseled against this “hypocrisy” as well. You cannot separate your spiritual life from your life “in the world” he would say. “We don’t fit in with the ways of this world; if we do, in today’s world, we aren’t serious Christians.

Through Blessed Father Seraphim’s prayers, may God grant us mercy, life and peace. You are in my prayers. Please pray for me.
Doxa to Theo, John D.
