Re: As the Sun Turns: Solar Minimums and Maximums

Solar activity has increased. Now we have returned to B levels looking at the GOES X-Ray Flux. Below I have posted a solar image showing what appears to be the former Beta-Delta-Gamma AR2673 that harbored energy for two X-ray flares: X9.3 and X8.2 slightly more than two weeks ago. This sunspot area ...

Re: The New Atheists, by Fr. Michael Azkoul of the GOC-K

We have had serious atheists with us since the Renaissance, but this new breed is far more dangerous. Perhaps they are not a new breed, but are closeted communists. Look at what has happened in Greece back in the 1924's. There were atheists in the Greek government who conspired to persecute the True...

In what faith group were you a member before you started your journey to Orthodoxy?

I was born into a Roman Catholic family. Although my dad was agnostic for a while, he converted back to Roman Catholicism just before his death. It took me a while, many years, before I seriously looked into Holy Orthodoxy as my earlier life was totally absorbed in Roman Catholicism. We attended Sun...

Re: Old Believers and Old Calendarists

Side-note: we may want to split the above discussion about Old Calendarism in Russia into another thread. It is already too much to handle because the two topics are interwoven so often. Let it go. Besides, we have hashed this stuff before, so nothing presented here is new. Some of the Old Calendar...

Re: Old Believers and Old Calendarists

Frankly that would surprise me very much, partly because the Russian Orthodox Church is still on the Old Calendar (therefore diminishing the appeal of an Old Calendarist jurisdiction for people in Russia - Old Calendarism is primarily a phenomenon in Greece). But perhaps you're right. Do you know o...

Re: "Russia's Catacomb Saints" Reprint

Thank you, NCY. I just ordered it from Amazon.com for much less. This paperback book is huge (over 600 pages). I just hope it holds together. Oh yeah, they're selling it for $13.94! (As of right now anyway). That is much cheaper. I hope it holds together as well! Yes. I am excited about this book, ...
