As a phenomenon

29 November 2021

On the one hand there is the secularization which is threatening the Church, external, moralistic  and Puritan paradigms which are making Orthodoxy a religion. One the other there are the cerebral models and flimsy intellectual constructs, as a phenomenon of our post-Modern era, or post-Christian, as many people would have it. These can be combatted only through empirical theology, through actual communion with the Uncreated, through the discovery of the real person.
