  • I hear there's this broadway show on Saturday Dec. 19 based on CS Lewis' "The Great Divorce". I'm not sure about all the details, but if you're in that area then, it would be a cool thing to attend.
  • Such wonderful and edifying responses! Thank you all :-)
  • This is my all-time favorite quote and it speaks an entire lifetime worth of wisdom: “To fall in love with God is the greatest romance; to seek him the greatest adventure; to find him, the greatest human achievement.” ― Augustine of Hippo
  • Does this mean we believe in theosis? I know that's generally an Eastern Orthodox concept. Is that the same thing as deification?
  • Well I assume that you want to find God because you feel a need for Him and not just to be that person who speaks about God. The first thing that I think is necessary is to feel a need. You must understand the immense emptiness and vanity of human l…
  • This is a really wonderful question. I've definitely thought about it.However, love for God can be hard to measure. Does examining my deeds provide a complete picture of my love? No. Because we can acquire a love for God, but we will nonetheless alw…
  • Neighbor, I'm glad you were edified by the wonderful responses above! Indeed this is something that I personally need to remind myself of daily.
  • Markh113, Your response was absolutely beautiful and enlightening. I did speak to my Foc, and he was of the same mindset. Oftentimes we compartmentalize our lives. But the real challenge and the real spiritual growth comes when everything becomes…
  • Firstly, I believe God has placed this flaw in you for a reason. I find that the best way to make friendships is through service. When people serve together, they're brought together by a common purpose. And the catch is that you don't get to choos…
  • Monasticsx, Thank you for your reply. But let me ask you, should we pursue our spiritual and academic lives with the same vigor?
  • Thank you for tht very insightful response. Of course,  anything that parts us from God should be cut off immediately. A sinful habit shouldn't be negotiated with- it should be cut off. But I see school as being in that gray area. We can't rule it…
  • Thank you, my friend. That means a lot.
  • Wow, this looks super cool ! I plan on keeping up with it =) God bless =)
  • Ahh yes, thank you :)
  • You are not wrong for having high standards of a friend. Not at all. You just need a spiritual friend. I think the 'intimacy' that you want is being able to talk to someone about the things that actually matter to you, like God. A spiritual friend …
  • Your desire to find a purpose in life is in itself one step closer to finding that purpose. Maybe your purpose is to find God..to find Him in such a way that will be completely satisfying and fulfilling for all your life--so that you wouldn't need t…
  • But your challenge for God is that he wouldn't give you the desire to masturbate for 1 or 2 months. The desire will always be there, although you can argue that it will eventually go away... but overnight, it won't. What God can do for you, however…
  • OMGOSH. this is the dilemma of my life. When you realize all the stress, labor, and toil you spend on supposedly meaninglesss things like school and work, it really makes you question why you do these things. You hear all the time that you should …
  • What assures me is knowing this: If God wants someone to die, He will make it happen. Not because He's a tyrant, but because this person's time has come. So trust that God is with every single person, including you and the ones you love. I'm sure …
  • That's a really good question that we never really address, lest we glorify one extreme over the other. although there are deggrees of comfortable living, living comfortably is essentially a type of luxury, since not many people can afford to do it…
  • perhaps go to the reason why you keep forgetting about God in places such as school, and on the computer. the reason God is forgotten is not because you dont have the capacity to remember him, but because the desire to sin overpowers. what is it abo…
  • [quote author=mabsoota link=topic=13495.msg157458#msg157458 date=1341780068] nice video! :) is that yr voice in the video? sounds almost british. aren't u american? i pray u have much success with the books. [/quote] this sounds like Bishop angael…
  • I'd also like to add a scientific aspect as to why God may have created the stars. Like ilovesaintmark said, all of God's creations are interconnected and serve each other in some way. stars operate by fusing elements to make even heavier elements. …
  • I tried finding a job, but it's not looking too promising since im under 18 and have no job experience. so these days, all i do is go on fb and watch tv and hang out. but i cant takee it anymoree! it's a measly and futile way of spending a summer.…

  • i hope you dont get fired in the process! LOL, i know most "corporate bullies" just want you to be robots who obey and not question. but good for you!
  • Exodus 12 is about the passover Lamb. How the angel of death would pass over any house with the blood of the Lamb on it. This is a direct relation to the eucharist because Christ said that unless you eat of His body and drink of His blood, you have …
  • well, free will. why would God create man, whom he knew would diisobey, sin, and reject Him? everyone has their own free will. with that you choose evil or good. Adam, like Satan, chose to disoobey God. but there were other angels who used their fr…
  • [quote author=Thanks be to God Always link=topic=13102.msg154142#msg154142 date=1333471090] interview with His Holiness [/quote] ahh thank youu so much..
  • have you guys heard about the 5 or so people that died while visiting H.H.'s tomb in the monastery? my parents heard of it from Christiandogma and told me. i was completely disgusted at how barbaric people can actually be. 5 lives were lost just fro…
