  • Sounds a great idea Khas. Are you willing to help set it up. Some of us need more prayer and the motivation to do so.
  • We try to live a liturgical life Mike. What we have is not ours, but God's. So what we have is a gift from God and we make offerings and worship Him. That life is not only in the church, but it is what we take outside of the church. I think Fr Pet…

  • Can the typo be changed to Bishop Suriel please.
  • Thanks Mina The very sad and horrific news of the people killed in St Peters Church calls us to pray for the repose of those matyrs and that those closely effected keep their peace in our Lord Jesus Christ. Our Bishop Surely has gone to suppor…
  • You are welcome and you are needed. We are corrected all day long and must submit to this correction and to let the Holy Spirit help us by Jesus Christ's word. The Father sends you the help in Jesus Christ's name. John 14:26 But the helper, the …
  • My brother Mike. You repented and I pray you see things more clearly and we are not a judge of the law but a doer of the law. But speak to abouna when you have clearly identified the problem and try to submit without complaint and I'm sure he will…
  • if you believe the truth in Jesus Christ, then the paths leading to His Kingdom are without sin and you would not accept the sin of this world by comparison to His truth. How do you get on the path? He teaches you? When we read Psalm 25: 4-5 S…
  • It is hard to accept rejection even when we feel it is right, but we still live the Orthodox way in Christ in submission because Jesus Christ is the way and the truth and the live in which our saints and matyrs lived. Confession is a submission to C…
  • My prayers for you Theblessedone. Forgive me but I think the question of why is always framed as a doubting question and as such puts someone on the defensive. God loves His creation and calls us all but it isn't all that listen. I pray for the …
  • That's ok love you brother and if it wasn't for our Lord Christ we would never of known each other or shared our lifes. Keep me in your prayers and I will certainly pray for you tonight. God bless
  • I wish to repent if I have in any way lead astray. The why question is one that asks for defense and so my defence in Christ Jesus is 1 Peter 3:8-22.
  • Oh and independence is a form of separation so it would be great if you evangelized a protest to the Orthodox faith Mike. Remember commonlaity and work through that in the hope they see something higher than their own independent interpretations.
  • You are very right Mike and I do think a lot, but we are given as much as we are able to cope with. I read your other post and I was thinking abouna didn't let you proceed because he felt you might end up disappointed and not able to cope. When we…
  • I believe in God because I understood a relationship and experiance that has a profound meaning in my life that I need to follow. and that God always offers His salvation and I know when I missed the target and that He is always there to correct me.…
  • Stay positive and not to let their worries that have turned to doubt let you have the same.
  • What I mean by power struggle is complaints and criticism. Not to buy into it.
  • In times of when some feels threatened, the response can be fight or flight; they either resist or leave. I'm praying you are positive know what you're about and dispite someone else's meddling in your affairs, that you stay because you are there fo…
  • Hi Mina You are quite right about loving humankind, however, even though they use love as we do, it is rights by law that influance morals that I was concerned about. If we don't repect their rights then we don't repect the law. I respect their huma…
  • To have a certain regard or consideration for their rights in society. The problem with politics is some groups are normalizing questionable moral behavour and this creates the lessening of societies conscience which in turn effects the moral standi…
  • You are there for Christ's salvation Love_21. His love for us is by far more important, more personal, and rewarding than any tribulations that you or I face. It is a perfect love, a Holy love. One that is unblemished by sin and those tribulations …
  • Hi Love_21 Sorry to hear that you are having a bit of a rough time at the moment. Friendship can be hard to keep, especially when others seek to destroy a good relation that we are trying to develop.    Did you go to the church for the culture? Beca…
  • You are a politican venadoazul?        Well, I guess that's one of getting caught up in this world. I went to school with someone who wanted to be Primeminister of our country, and now he is. He wanted to be Primeminister since he was ten years old …
  • Hi ThanksBeToGod You could try talking to abouna at church. Maybe God wants it discussed in His territory (church). Matters of the heart maybe better served in the sanctuary of God's temple. The guy sounds really good, encouraging, nice, shari…
  • Hello Michele,      Wecome to this site and I'm sorry that response has been slow. God bless you for coming here and I pray you find what it is that you look for in your journey and fulfillment in our Lord Jesus Christ. Where ever you go He is alway…

  • Hi Bishop, There are many problems stated here and I wish I could solve them. I can't admittedly, and I do believe God can. All I could do is say that we search for virtues and in this way God gives gives us value not only to ourselves but to …
  • I liked the old one too where I could edit. Pray for me.
  • Even pray for those in our church who are fallen and cover their sin for the sake of God's love and mercy.
  • The whole world is polarized by this protection of dignity when we need to esteem ourself in Christ Jesus. For in Him we have true peace.e My only advice if it is any good is if you are in doubt about if you are in sin Mike is to go to confession a…
  • What made the prodigal son go on the journey back to his father? It was the realization of his fallen state. Many do not have this realization of the fallen state myself included many times when we protect our dignity. The more we protect it the m…
  • The truth is a journey Mike in which we close separation from God by our love for Him and neighbors and brothers and the poor, and at the same time, getting rid of sin.
