Life after Death A description of the first 40 days after death A Homily by St. John Maximovitch of Shanghai and San Francisco.

Limitless and without consolation would have been our sorrow for close ones who are dying, if the Lord had not given us eternal life. Our life would be pointless if it ended with death. What benefit would there then be from virtue and good deed? Then they would be correct who say: “Let us eat…

Ἡ θέση τοῦ Ἁγίου Πορφυρίου γιά τίς ἐλεύθερες σχέσεις-The position of St. Porphyrios regarding free relations

Ο αγιότατος Όσιος γενικώς ήταν τελείως αντίθετος στις νεοορθόδοξες – νεονικολαϊτικές διδασκαλίες περί ελεύθερων σχέσεων με πρόσχημα την αγάπη. Γνώριζε ότι οι διδασκαλίες αυτές ωθούν τους ανθρώπους και μάλιστα τους νέους στον ερωτισμό, στην ελευθεριότητα, στις σαρκικές αμαρτίες και στις διαστροφές. Δυστυχώς, αυτές οι ιδέες εισβάλλουν στην Εκκλησία ως προοδευτικές, φιλελεύθερες, αντιπουριτανικές, αντιζηλωτικές και εκσυγχρονιστικές….
