ICU – At the Border between Life and Death [3]

Bioethics - 19 August 2017

D. Findings-Conclusions 1) Life and death transcend us as an instant, as a process and as events. 2) The closer we get to actually creating life purely through artificial means, the easier it makes it for us to take it away, to decide its end. We consider it our own responsibility. 3) In the en...

The Grandeur of the Mother of God

Celebratory speeches - Theotokos (Mother of God) - 19 August 2017

When the most glorious and richest kings on earth have in mind to build their throne and their royal palace as a whole, they don’t leave a stone unturned until they find the most precious material that nature is able to offer, so that the palace won’t lack the slightest thing in terms of luxury good...

We pay attention to the doctor but not to Christ

Words of Life - 18 August 2017

If a doctor gives us a diet, for the good of our health, we follow it religiously. What’s a diet? It’s fasting, or abstention from various foods. But we don’t follow the diet set by God. We listen to the doctor, but not to Christ. The doctor’s more important to us than Christ!...

Don’t pamper your body

Words of Life - 17 August 2017

Don’t take undue care of your body. Don’t spoil it and give it pride of place over the spirit. Otherwise, when you want to do spiritual work, such as prayer, for example, you’ll see that the flesh has become dominant over the spirit and has it bound hand and foot. It won’t set it free to regain it...

The foolish philosopher

Words of Life - 16 August 2017

Callous people are foolish philosophers. They explain the will of God to others, to their own condemnation. They’re blind and tell others how to see. They praise silence and laud it with verbosity. They teach meekness and are often angry while doing so. They praise prayer and avoid it like the pla...

The Dormition of the Mother of God – Transition to Life

Theotokos (Mother of God) - 16 August 2017

Every time we celebrate the Dormition of the Mother of God it’s as though we have Easter again. The summer Easter. Our Lady the Mother of God prepares Easter for us. A glorious crossing ‘from death to life’. A second Easter, holy, spotless, giving life to the human race, because today, in truth ‘ th...
