Wisdom of the Church Fathers and the Monastic Life

Elder Ieronymos of AeginaElder Ieronymos of Aegina The evil one cannot comprehend the joy we receive from the spiritual life; for this reason he is jealous of us, he envies us and sets traps for us, and we become grieved and fall. We must struggle, because without struggles we do not obtain virtues.

Elder Ieronymos
of Aegina

Orthodox Tidbits — August: The Month of Mary

August: Month of Mary August is the month when the Orthodox Church celebrates the Feast of the Dormition, which, of course, is the name day of our parish. Our website will honor this occasion by devoting our Orthodox Tidbit section to the Theotokos for the entire month of August, featuring different writings about her each week.

Orthodox Christians honor Mary in many ways, first of all in the variety of ways in which we refer to her. Theototoks literally means "God-bearer" and that Mary is the Mother of our Lord, Jesus Christ. She is also referred to by the Orthodox Church as Aiparthenos or "Ever-virgin" and Panagia or "all holy."
