JOURNEY TO ORTHODOXY

Fr. Phil Thompson is the author of the Silouan blog, an excellent site for information. He is also a well known iconographer in North American Orthodoxy, and this, his story, was taken from his own website http://silouanthompson.net

“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. Awe came upon every soul, because many wonders and signs were being done by the apostles. All who believed were together and had all things in common… Day by day, as they spent much time together in the temple, they broke bread at home and ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.” (Acts 2:42-47)

When I became a Christian in 1980, I was living with a Roman Catholic family and Continue reading Fr. Philip Silouan Thompson, USA: Moving East – From Roman Catholicism & Protestantism to Orthodoxy

Θά παρακολουθήσουμε τήν πορεία τοῦ Αμερικανού Matthew Gallatin πρός τήν Ὀρθοδοξία:

«Στά 23 μου χρόνια βρέθηκα νά ἐργάζωμαι, ὄντας λαϊκός, ὡς βοηθός τοῦ διευθυντή τῆς ἀντβεντιστικῆς νεολαίας τῆς εὐρύτερης περιοχῆς μίας μεγάλης πόλεως. Μέ τήν ἰδιότητα αὐτή δίδασκα στήν τάξι τῶν νέων μιᾶς ἀπ’ τίς τοπικές ἐκκλησίες κάθε Σάββατο πρωΐ.

Ἕνα Σάββατο, νωρίς τό πρωΐ, προετοίμαζα μία σέ βάθος μελέτη κάποιου δογματικοῦ ζητήματος. Καθώς μελετοῦσα προσεκτικά ἕνα θέμα προσπαθώντας νά βρῶ κάποιο τρόπο νά τό ἐξηγήσω σέ μία ὁμάδα ἐφήβων, ἕνα ἐρώτημα ξέσπασε μέσα στήν ψυχή μου. Ἀπρόβλεπτα καί τόσο εὐκρινῶς σάν κάποιος νά μοῦ μιλοῦσε, ἦλθε τό ἐρώτημα: Γνωρίζεις τί πιστεύεις;

Φυσικά! , ἀπάντησα δυνατά. Θυμᾶμαι ὅτι ταράχθηκα μ’ αὐτή μου τήν ἀντίδρασι. Αὐτή τήν ἀπάντησι ἀπαιτοῦσε πάντως τό ἐρώτημα. Ἐξίσου αἰφνιδιαστικά ἡ ἴδια φωνή μοῦ ἀποκρίθηκε: Ναί! Γνωρίζεις τί πιστεύεις. Εἶναι, ὅμως, ἡ ἀλήθεια;

Μπορῶ ἀκόμη νά θυμηθῶ πῶς ἐκεῖνα τά λόγια ἀντήχησαν στό μυαλό μου. Ἀπείρως, ὅμως, πιό δυνατή ἀπ’ τά λόγια αὐτά ἦταν ἡ ὄμορφη, ἀπό καιρό λησμονημένη παρουσία, ἡ ὁποία μέ περιέβαλε ἐκείνη τή Continue reading Η ΠΟΡΕΙΑ ΤΟΥ ΑΜΕΡΙΚΑΝΟΥ MATTHEW GALLATIN ΑΠΟ ΤΟΝ ΠΡΟΤΕΣΤΑΝΤΙΣΜΟ ΣΤΗΝ ΟΡΘΟΔΟΞΙΑ

ORTODOSSO ITALIANO DEDICO

† A. B. K.

INVECE DI PREMESSA

Nell’ottobre dell’anno scorso 1954 è sorto a Catania ed a Firenze, promosso da Italiani di puro sangue, un movimento che mira non ad un Cattolicesimo riformato, ma addirittura ad un ritorno completo e sincero alle origini, cioè alla genuina Chiesa Cristiana esistente prima del funesto grande scisma tra Oriente ed Occidente consumato dal Papa Urbano II nell’anno 1098 nel Sinodo di Bari da lui ivi convocato. I pionieri di tale movimento hanno trovato tale Chiesa primitiva nella Chiesa Ortodossa Cristiana che è infatti l’unica genuina continuatrice della Chiesa fondata da Gesù Cristo e divulgata dai SS. Apostoli.
È molto commovente il fatto che proprio in quest’anno che è il novecentesimo dagli inizi dei primi aperti contrasti ecclesiastici tra Occidente e Oriente, che condussero poi Continue reading PERCHÉ ABBANDONAI LA CHIESA CATTOLICA ROMANA – SAN PAOLO BALLESTER CONVALIER, MARTIRE IN MESSICO (+1984) – Italian
