Green Pass to the Abyss: Mass Surveillance and Technocratic Slavery

“Everyone will now become his own prison guard,” Jacques Attali. In April of 2021, I penned an article entitled, Health Passports, Economic Coercion, and the Number of a Man. In that post, I addressed the clear and looming agenda of “health passports.” Sadly, the article is still very relevant. I wish it were not and …

Prophetic Warnings – That We Would be Saved

“In the twentieth century it is almost a joke in the Western world to use words like 'good' and 'evil.' They have become old-fashioned concepts, yet they are very real and genuine. These are concepts from a sphere which is above us. And instead of getting involved in base, petty, shortsighted political calculations and games …

The Suicide of Western Society and the Only Hope for its Resurrection

Below the reader will find an excerpt from the introduction by Fr. Seraphim (Rose) of blessed memory to The Vita Patrum, the Life of the Fathers, by St. Gregory of Tours.

The Escape from Materialism

The crisis of our day is not essentially a political one, nor is it fundamentally about a virus and its effects on the human person and surrounding society, nor the environment, or whatever else we could add to the current list.

This World is Not Our Home

“Many lose their true home because they have greater love for the road that leads them there. Let us not love the road rather than our home, in case we should lose our eternal home … Let us keep to this principle, therefore, that we should live as travelers and pilgrims on the road … …

Without Suffering there is no Faith

The only way to life is by holding fast to our Lord Jesus Christ, to Truth. I offer below words from St. John of Kronstadt on the vital topic of holding fast the faith. It is imperative that we as Orthodox Christians are striving to uphold the clear standard of faith as revealed and guarded …

The Diplomacy of Deceit

Archbishop Averky (Taushev) of blessed memory was and is a firm and unabashed patristic voice. I offer one of his works below, which was originally entitled "See that Ye Walk Circumspectly" (I changed the title for my blog. The only other change I made was to alter the British spelling of Saviour to the standard …

St. Paisios, The Apocalypse, and a Protestant Ethos

“Beforetimes, a table used to stand in the corner wherein the holy icons were. Then, however, that space will be occupied by seductive instruments for the deception of men. Many who have departed away from the Truth will say, ‘we need to watch and hear the news.’ And it is in the news that antichrist …
