feyandfiery: Wasn't my favorite actually. But I have for a long time even dreamed about this guy. After the first dream I woke up and actually Googled, learned he was real. I used to be s voracious reader so maybe I was exposed to him and just didn't remember, but I read odd quotes from him at times when they matter.
Orthodoxy as a book though seemed rather disorganized to me. I think I should read it again. Actually I listened to it. Maybe I wasn't focused. But I have any of his books waiting to be read. I feel I should know this person.
When You descended unto death, O Lord who yourself are immortal Life, then did You mortify Hades by the lightning flash of Your Divinity. Also when You raised the dead from the netherworld, all the Powers of the heavens were crying out: O Giver of life, Christ our God, glory be to You. -Resurrectional Apolytikion
On Holy Friday evening we remember Christ's descent into Hades during which the Gospel of repentance and reconciliation with God is shared with those who died before Christ's saving dispensation in the flesh. Death is about to be conquered and faithfulness rewarded. https://www.goarch.org/holysaturday
On the same day, O Lord, You granted the Robber Paradise. Now by the wood of the Cross, illumine me and save me. -Exapostelarion for Holy Friday
Today, we are once again reverent witnesses to the undeserved suffering of Christ, to his terrible passion and death. What is remembered in a special way through liturgical commemoration and procession, is the faithfulness and love of Joseph of Arimathea who tenderly removed Christ's body from the cross, wrapped it in clean linen, and carried it to his own unused tomb for burial. https://www.goarch.org/holyfriday
Branko Malic: “You don’t have to be religious … it’s just common sense” – one often sees this kind of preface to arguments against practices sometimes branded as fruits of what is sometimes called “culture of death”. But is this so? Compromise is unavoidable in political struggle, but can there be a compromise between mind and reality? In this two parts essay we’ll argue in favor of the negative answer. We take an example of the most consequent form of advocating for equality of death and life – the advocacy for the institutionalized euthanasia – and attempt to show how it runs directly contrary to primary act of knowledge – that most obvious, yet rarely examined, state of mind we call “being in touch with reality”.
A Touch of Reality - Part 1
"Because all their kings had mostly been unjust and covetous and subjected them to wars ... he said to them, 'Trust me, I am not like them. I am gentle and mild.' He demonstrated this by the manner of his entrance, not entering at the head of an army but simply riding on a donkey." - St. John Chrysostom, Homilies on the Gospel of John
On Palm Sunday, we celebrate the entry of our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ into Jerusalem. Palm Sunday is the commemoration of the Entrance of our Lord into Jerusalem following His glorious miracle of raising Lazarus from the dead. Having anticipated His arrival and having heard of the miracle, the people went out to meet the Lord and welcomed Him with displays of honor and shouts of praise. On this day, we receive and worship Christ in this same manner, acknowledging Him as our King and Lord.
The biblical story of Palm Sunday is recorded in all four of the Gospels (Matthew 21:1-11; Mark 11:1-10; Luke 19:28-38; and John 12:12-18). https://www.goarch.org/palmsunday
Kali Tribune podcast series: Conspiracy of Enlightenment 👇
We hereby present first in the series of podcasts devoted to arguably the first conspiracy theory, expounded by French secularized Jesuit Augustin Barruel in his voluminous work Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism.
To this day, Barruel’s book remains one of the prime sources for dangerous and troublesome research of occult history of modern world. It is usually, and quite improperly, dubbed the first anti-masonic conspiracy book. In reality, Memoirs presents us with the thesis that real agents behind Novus Ordo Seculorum, surging into light of day in the form of French Revolution of 1789., were not primarily Freemasons but people who called themselves “philosophers” – the members of the intellectual movement now celebrated under the moniker of French Enlightenment.
Conspiracy of Enlightenment - Part 1
We continue with the introduction to Augustin Barruel’s "Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism", a veritable historical nucleus of modern conspiracy theory. In this episode we deal with what Barruel calls “Anti-Christian conspiracy”, i.e. a push to abolish both political and epistemological domination of religion and metaphysics, embodied in Catholic Church.
We proceed to depict his thesis that the inciters of this subversive movement were followers of Enlightenment led by Voltaire and how it plays out into idea that what we today consider to be mainstream world-view was once a subversive movement. This episodes concludes with remarks on seeming paradox of congeniality of Enlightenment style rationalism and occultism. In the third episode we’ll dwell some more on this historical fact made manifest by collaboration with- or subversion of Freemasonry by Enlightenment philosophists.
Conspiracy of Enlightenment- Part 2
In the third episode of our series on first real conspiracy theory we come to the moment you all have been waiting for: occult lodges of Freemasonry and their role in the French Revolution, as depicted by Barruel.
Conspiracy of Enlightenment - Part 3
During his 2013 Australia Speaking Tour, Dr William Lane Craig spoke at Saint Barnabas Anglican Church Broadway. Afterward, there was a lengthy Q&A time for people to text in their questions for Dr Craig to answer. In this clip, Dr Craig answers a question concerning the laws of nature. Did the laws of nature come into being at the beginning of the universe? What are the laws of nature?

Jay Dyer: Today I am finally getting around to doing a stream I've intended to do for a long time: replying to the standard fare top 10 arguments you hear from atheists, Muslims, Arians, etc., on why the Triad isn't true. Fundamental to this question will be the place of revelation in our theology, the harmonization of revelation in our hermeneutic, the proper and improper use of philosophy and its concepts in theology, how Orthodoxy alone retains this, etc.
