Polamalu was born in Garden Grove, California. He is of Samoan descent.

Troy Aumua Polamalu (born Troy Aumua on April 19, 1981), is a former American football strong safety who played his entire twelve-year career for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for the University of Southern California (USC), and earned consensus All-American honors. He was chosen by the Steelers in the first round of the 2003 NFL Draft. He was a member of two of the Steelers’ Super Bowl championship teams, and was the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2010.

Polamalu is married to Theodora Holmes and has two sons: Paisios, born on October 31, 2008, and Ephraim, born September 16, 2010. Theodora is the sister of NFL player and USC Trojans alumnus Alex Holmes.  He resides with his family in Pittsburgh during the football season and San Diego, California during the off-season.

Polamalu is well read in the history and theology of early Christianity, which ultimately led both him and his wife to convert to Orthodox Christianity in 2007. He makes the Sign of the Cross after every play. Among his spiritual activities was a 2007 pilgrimage to Orthodox Christian sites in Greece and Asia Minor. He seldom gives interviews, but when he does, he often speaks of the role his spirituality plays in his life. Polamalu has said that he tries to separate himself from his profession as much as possible, including not watching football games at home. He prays after each play and on the sidelines. His sons are both named after after Saint Paisios of Mt. Athos, Greece (+1994) and his Spiritual Father, Fr. Ephraim of Arizona.

JOURNEY TO ORTHODOXY

On this sunny So-Cal day, Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu graciously postpones his morning workout to ruminate about not just football – but life and what’s most important in it. I narrow our chat to three topics.

By Gina Mazza

Pittsburgh Magazine, August 2009

Football is a given: How was this year’s Super Bowl experience versus XL? Tomlin versus Cowher? Goals for the coming season?
Fatherhood is new in Polamalu’s life since the birth of his son, Paisios, named after a beloved contemporary Greek Orthodox monastic, Elder Paisios, on Oct. 31, 2008. Has daddy-dom been life-changing? Will he encourage his son to play professional sports? How’s that
beautiful new mom doing?

And last but not least: Faith. In order to properly meet Polamalu where he lives, this is the requisite, the grounding force that gives meaning to everything he does, every play he makes. Polamalu’s evident gratitude to the one who made him Continue reading THE MANE MAN – AN INTERVIEW WITH TROY POLAMALU OF PITTSBURGH STEELERS TEAM, SAMOA & USA – JOURNEY TO ORTHODOXY

π. Ἰωάννης Κωστώφ:

Μέχρι τή συντέλεια τῶν αἰώνων ὁ Χριστός θά εἶναι ἕνας περιπατητής τῶν καρδιῶν τῶν ἀνθρώπων. Ἔτσι ὅπως ἔκανε καί στήν περίπτωσι τοῦ Ἀσώτου Υἱοῦ: Θά τρέχη νά τόν προϋπαντήση. Θά ἐπιζητῆ νά πλησιάση, νά φωτίση, νά θεραπεύση, νά θρέψη τίς πεινασμένες καρδιές τῶν πλανεμένων. Νά τίς καταστήση στύλους στόν ἐπουράνιο Ναό Του (Ἀπκ 3, 12), νά τίς ἐγγράψη ἀνεξίτηλα στή Βίβλο τῆς Ζωῆς (Ἀπκ 3, 5). Θά προσκαλῆ συνεχῶς: «Δεῦτε (: ἐλᾶτε) πρός με πάντες οἱ κοπιῶντες καί πεφορτισμένοι (: φορτωμένοι ἀπό πλάνες καί ἁμαρτίες), κἀγώ ἀναπαύσω ὑμᾶς»(Μθ 11, 28). Ἔργο δικό μας, ἡμῶν πού εἴμασθε Ὀρθόδοξοι, κατέχουμε δηλ. τό 100% τῆς ἀληθείας, εἶναι νά ἐξομαλύνουμε τό δρόμο τῆς ἐπιστροφῆς πρός τό Χριστό τῶν πλανεμένων ἀδελφῶν μας: «Ἑτοιμάσατε τήν ὁδόν Κυρίου, εὐθείας ποιεῖτε τάς τρίβους αὐτοῦ»(Μθ 3, 3). Εἴθε νά τό ἐνστερνισθοῦμε.

Orthodox priest survives

tropical hell of Papua New Guinea

http://lettersfromanex2x2.blogspot.com

LETTERS FROM AN EX 2X2

Archpriest Nikolai Nesprava is known in as “extreme father.” In the summer of this year, he traveled to the jungle of Papua New Guinea. The priest wanted to get acquainted with the life of aboriginal people, who live under the laws of the Stone Age and practice cannibalism. Pravda.Ru interviewed the priest upon his return home.

“How were you welcomed by the tribes of Papua New Guinea?” 

“The communication with the Papuans was an amazing experience of communication with the people, whose language we don’t know. There is a gap of thousands of years between us, because they still live in the Stone Age. But the people could understand me. There is a language that is understandable to all humans. This is the language of sincerity, mercy and love. Those people could understand this language very well.

“Warriors are always armed there. When we were trying to approach them we could see the muscles of their arms and chests pulsating. They are very cautious, and they are ready to respond to attacks any moment. Then we started communicating with them, and they put down their bows and arrows. I can’t say that I was happy with everything. On the one hand, I returned alive and practically healthy. On the other hand, when I was looking at the photos that we had taken, I realized that I had not photographed many remarkable moments. I had to throw myself on the ground to take amazing photos.”

“You wrote that the first several days in Papua New Guinea were like hell to you.”

“By the first night of my stay there, the soles of my shoes were deformed, and my legs were aching terribly. I used to serve in special forces and I always thought of myself as a physically prepared man. The jungle was extremely hard for me, though, to my own surprise.””The jungle is usually referred to as “tropical paradise.” As a matter of fact, this is real tropical hell. A local tribe builds homes on pales, up to 30 meters high, and they do it to save themselves from the water that always falls down on their heads from above. The people live in those homes together with their pigs and dogs. During two weeks of our stay there, we saw sunlight for about an hour and that was it. If we had to walk through the jungle, we would be walking through water. We could hardly catch up with the people walking in front of us. Those Continue reading ORTHODOX PRIEST SURVIVES TROPICAL HELL OF PAPUA NEW GUINEA
