Matrona of Moscow: Distraction from the REAL Saints

This engineered 'saint' Matrona of Moscow is an obvious fake. I skimmed through some of her "Life" and stopped right here : "When St. Matrona was still young, God granted her a chance to be a pilgrim. The daughter of a local estate owner, a devout kind girl, Lydia Yankova, took Matro...

Re: Nun Dosifea, Mysterious Recluse

Well, another year has rolled around and it's Nun Dosifea's repose day tomorrow. This will be her 208th anniversary. I located a different version of the same paragraph above which gives a glimpse of the reverence she had for Elder Philaret of Novospassky. The details differ slightly, but the tale ...

Avoiding PMS, Menopause & Perimenopause

This will not be a fully detailed reply, but aim at sketching an outline of what a woman can do to quell those problems. It is in reply to Maria's mention in the Modest and Immodest Dress thread above. Immediately, one must skip any idea whatsoever of that horrific "replacement therapy". ...

Re: Struggling with Fanaticism

You sound highly normal, Justice. Don't worry, Don't fret, Don't let anxieties bother you. Always it is better to express them and get the feedback of others. That gives balance. ... No one comes to True Orthodoxy without some upheaval or wondering or thinking deeply. So don't single yourself out fo...

Re: Blue Blood [Aristocratic !?] Super Moon Jan 31 2018

Thanks for fixing that, Maria. Here is a nice image from a Boise, Idaho photographer not of this recent moon configuration, but a previous supermoon from June 22, 2013. Let's call that, then, a plebeian super moon perhaps... http://www.idahostatesman.com/news/local/x35xc5/picture184020311/alternate...

Re: Aliens and UFOs Will be Declared Real by World Authorities

Today, certainly. But 40 years ago, people were so much better educated [ overall ]. Many more would recognize such terms used in common discussions. However, these days, people stare blankly when one includes anything like this, don't you agree ?

Re: Modest versus Immodest clothing. What to wear to Church?

Yes, I remember the Daughters of Mercy headdresses which were designed by St Vincent de Paul probably. He wanted healthy, hearty, strong French peasant girls to form the backbone of this new order, he stated. Thus the style chosen was that of a French peasant girl from that era.
