The Divine Liturgy Holds Back the Tide of Evil

Below the reader will find my translation from the Russian of sermon number 17 by St. Seraphim (Zvezdenski), On the Divine Liturgy. The preceding sermons may be found by clicking here.

On Truth and Love

Below the reader will find the work of St. Theophan the Recluse, "On Truth and Love." On some of my social media accounts, I posted the recent statement from the Synod of the OCA, "On Same-Sex Relations and Sexual Identity." In it, Glory to God, the Synod upholds Orthodox teaching.
