구복단 – 산상 설교 (마태복음 5:1-12)

The Beatitudes (Matthew 5:1-12)

1예수님은 많은 사람들이 모여드는 것을 보시고 산에 올라가 앉으셨다. 그러자 제자들이 그분에게 나아왔다.
2그래서 예수님은 그들에게 이렇게 가르치셨다.
3“마음이 가난한 사람들은 행복하다. 하늘 나라가 그들의 것이다.
4슬퍼하는 사람들은 행복하다. 그들은 위로를 받을 것이다.
5유순한 사람들은 행복하다. 그들은 땅을 물려받을 것이다.
6의를 위해 굶주리고 목마른 사람들은 행복하다. 그들은 원하는 것을 다 얻을 것이다.
7남을 불쌍히 여기는 사람들은 행복하다. 하나님도 그들을 불쌍히 여기실 것이다.
8마음이 깨끗한 사람들은 행복하다. 그들은 하나님을 볼 것이다.
9화평을 이루는 사람들은 행복하다. 그들은 하나님의 아들이라 불릴 것이다.
10의를 위해 핍박을 받는 사람들은 행복하다. 하늘 나라가 그들의 것이다.
11“나 때문에 사람들이 너희를 욕하고 핍박하고 거짓말로 온갖 악담을 할 때에 너희는 행복하다.
12하늘에서 큰 상이 너희를 기다리고 있다. 기뻐하고 즐거워하여라. 이전의 예언자들도 이런 핍박을 받았다.

Ο Θεός περιμένει την κατάλληλη στιγμή – Γέροντας Αιμιλιανός Σιμωνοπετρίτης (+2019)

Ο Θεός περιμένει την κατάλληλη στιγμή

Γέροντας Αιμιλιανός Σιμωνοπετρίτης (+2019):

«Ο Θεός περιμένει την κατάλληλη στιγμή, για να έρθει να σου φωτίσει την διάνοια, να σου χαρίσει όλο τον Παράδεισο. Αυτό που νοσταλγούσες ένα, δύο, τρία, πέντε, είκοσι, πενήντα χρόνια, θα το πάρεις σε μια στιγμή! Η μετάνοια δεν πάει ποτέ χαμένη και δεν χάνεις τίποτε, όταν την ασκείς».

PROTESTANTS MET ORTHODOXY

Has the Church ever apostatized?

Because of the sudden appearance of Protestantism during the 16th century, there arose an inner need to prove that it has a place in the history of the Church, and also that Protestantism belongs to the Church. Hence they created a theory, which claimed that the Church supposedly apostatized after the demise of the Apostles, and hence, for centuries did not exist in any organized form.

Because of the sudden appearance of Protestantism during the 16th century, there arose an inner need to prove that it has a place in the history of the Church, and also that Protestantism belongs to the Church. Hence they created a theory, which claimed that the Church supposedly apostatized after the demise of the Apostles, and hence, for centuries did not exist in any organized form.

Other groups claim that the Church apostatized during the 4th century, others during the 3rd, others during the 2nd, and others even claim it happened during the 1st century (!), depending on each group’s benefits. They use the scandals that occasionally appear in the Orthodox Church as their excuse, in order to validate their assertion that “the Church has apostatized, because it has a large proportion of unworthy presbyters and faithless people.”

This is the topic that we shall deal with here. Can the Church have unclean Elders?

Proportional Judgment?

Someone might say: “Alright, perhaps people are indifferent, so we can expect a large proportion to be unclean and perhaps every now and then a presbyter may behave disrespectfully, but, when there is a huge proportion of scandals – and especially in the topmost “leadership” of the Church – God cannot accept worship from a religion that allows the continuation of scandals!”

The proportion of scandals is of course not as large as the other religions would have liked it Continue reading “Has the Church ever apostatized?”

The Life of Fr. John Maitland Moir

JOURNEY TO ORTHODOXY

Below is his official obituary. Our prayers go to all who knew and loved him, and for the repose of his holy soul.

* * *

Father John Maitland Moir, Priest of the Orthodox Church of St Andrew in Edinburgh, founder of many smaller Orthodox communities throughout Scotland and Orthodox Chaplain to the University of Edinburgh, died peacefully in Edinburgh Royal Infirmary on the 17th April 2013.

A man of profound holiness and bedazzling eccentricity, of boundless compassion and canny wisdom, utterly selfless and stubbornly self-willed, serenely prayerful and fiercely self-disciplined, Father John will surely earn a place as a unique and outstanding figure in the ecclesiastical annals of Scotland. He was born in 1924 in the village of Currie where his father was the local doctor; his fondness for his mother was always mingled with quiet pride in the fact that she was a member of the lesser aristocracy. The privileged but somewhat severe upbringing of an only child in this household together with a chronic weakness in his knees kept him apart from the hurly-burly of boyhood and directed him from an early age to more spiritual and intellectual pursuits. After his schooling at Edinburgh Academy, he went on to study Classics at Edinburgh University during the war years, his never robust health precluding any active military service. After the war, and a short spell as Classics Master at Cargilfield School in Perthshire, he moved to Oxford to continue classical studies at Christ Church and theological studies at Cuddesdon Theological College.

His interest in Eastern Christendom was awakened in Oxford and he eagerly seized the opportunity to study at the famous Halki Theological Academy in Istanbul in 1950-51. During this year he also travelled in the Holy Land and Middle East and forged friendships in the Continue reading “The Life of Fr. John Maitland Moir, Scotland (1924-2013)”
