A Christmas Message from Archbishop Mark - 25/12/2012

A Prayer of St Olga
Translated by Marianna Redmond

A Christmas Epistle from Archbishop Mark

An Encyclical Letter from Archbishop Mark on the Subject of Love
Vladyka Mark has sent a pastoral letter to the clergy under his omphor to mark the tenth anniversary of the evil attacks and tragic events of the 11th of September, 2001.

The Lullaby
This is a lovely poem which expresses the love a father has for his son. Remarkably, Prince Konstantine has a premonition about his little son's future. Prince Ioann was to die in 1918 at the hands of the Bolsheviks at the same time as the Venerable Martyr, the Grand Duchess Elisabeth.
(translated by Marianna Redmond - Feast of the Theophany 19/01/2011)


Holy Scripture and the Church
A superb exposition of the salvific nature of the Church, explaining the place of Holy Scripture within the life of the Church rather than something with its own power to save. Sadly, many groups have lost this understanding, resulting in a perhaps unbalanced reverence for the sacred texts and a diminishing of the place of the Church.  This article sets the record straight.
St Hilarion the New Hieromartyr - 26/12/09
