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 …

The Emerging World Order and a Throne of Power

The Antichrist will take the throne of health. A certain flu (virus) will appear, it will be like the flu. But this is an invented disease. It is recommended to avoid all types of vaccination. And those who are not vaccinated will be isolated" Elder Savvas (Achilleos). It is indisputable that there is a large …

The Talisman Mask

It seems that various places are once again promoting the mask talisman as a protection against viruses. Wearing a mask does not protect other people from a virus. Wearing ones does not protect you from a virus. I'm not making a political statement, I'm making a statement based on research into the matter. It should …

Just Follow the Science

“The whole clue of all this liberation is in the plot against Christ, and not at all in making human life better and more prosperous for the sake of changing one social system for another. Thus it behooves us to carefully preserve, and boldly and firmly stand up for, anything that can safeguard the sacred …

The Medicine of Knowledge

“Apart from Me, you are not able to do anything,” John 15:5. Is true knowledge able to be separated from God? Is there some earthly knowledge that is outside the sphere of Faith? At current, even Christians can be heard making claims regarding current events, such as, “this is a medical/scientific question, not a spiritual …

Instructions on the Path of Virtue, by St. Dimitry of Rostov

Over the past years I have shared a few pieces, translated from Russian, by St. Dimitry of Rostov. A number of years ago I translated a collection of his works. I attempted to publish it via a self-publishing site, but I've never been very proficient in promotion. So not much came of it. Over the …

Purifying Fire: Sermon of St. Seraphim (Zvezdinski) on the Divine Liturgy

“You shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you” Deut. 6:14. Since the time of Seth, the Lord has set apart unto Himself those who will abide in the true worship of Him. The guarding of true worship is an inextricable vocation of those who worship …

The Temple of the Living God

My dear readers, below you will find a translation of a sermon by the New Hieromartyr Seraphim (Zvezdinski). It is the first of twenty two sermons specifically on the subject of the Divine Liturgy. It is, as far as I know, the first time it appears in English. As with all the holy newmartyrs of …

The Temple of Pharmakon

“By seeking to sever the connection of the sciences with any higher principle, under the pretext of assuring their independence, the modern conception robs them of all deeper meaning and even of all real interest from the point of view of knowledge; it can only lead them down a blind alley,” Rene Guenon. A Christian …
