Orthodox Mission #32

The new summer issue of the Orthodox Mission magazine is out with news and reports from 14 missionary regions in Africa, Asia and the Pacific. Why is the Tongan...

In the Footsteps of a Saint

The natives are simple-hearted, kind people with a wide smile. They open their arms to embrace you, and you, the “muzungu”, can see straight into their heart, their pure, undefiled soul, the vast world of love, the creation of the Master Artist, the image of God...

Orthodoxy in Colombia

Our parish community lies in Cereté. We celebrate the Divine Liturgy once a month at my parents’ house, because I live in Medellín and the journey to Cereté is 10 hours long by bus. Thankfully, our community has grown a lot and I will now move to Cereté permanently with my wife and our three children...

Kenya: a Fruitful Land

Devastation in Beira

A New Diocese in the East of the Congo

The Holy Diocese of Goma is located in Eastern Congo and consists of two provinces, those of North and South Kivu. With a total area of 24,553 km2 and 12,427,000 inhabitants, Goma is the worst afflicted Congolese region with 25 years of war, illnesses such as the fatal epidemic of Ebola and a very high death toll, a region full of desperate, helpless, hopeless souls. It is in this region that the light of Orthodoxy rose with the foundation of the Diocese in order to bring hope, peace, strength and life to these humble souls...

Missionary Journey to Sierra Leone

In 1807, when the English were forced to stop slave trade after the international community’s disapproval, the ships that had already set off for the new continent returned back and freed the captive slaves, who had now gained their freedom...

The Nkayi Orthodox Brothers are Grateful

The Orthodox Mission needs the creation of churches, since the number of the Congolese who discover Orthodoxy «which has grace and power» - as they say when they first appear before us - is growing, so they need houses of prayer to worship true God, be taught the immaculate Orthodox faith and become candles of light themselves for their fellow countrymen...

Youth Gathering in Larteh

Some people argue that Orthodoxy cannot offer solutions to building a proper society, thinking that it is simply a religion, which is wrong. Orthodoxy is a communication of persons relying on the real fact of man’s search from God Himself and not on man’s attempt to create a god. A God who approaches us to heal our passions, without us attributing human weaknesses to Him...

Travel to Nowhere

I’m starting to get concerned as traveling to nowhere takes me to places that really leave me speechless. There, in those places of my pastoral exile, I reached the most forgotten poor and unprotected little children who lived in anticipation of a word and a little smile. I met them. And what do you think I saw in front of me? A structure - supposedly their school- where they attend classes daily and get educated...

Gone with the sea

Patience and perseverance were valuable allies. The contemplation of the ultimate goal gave strength. Praying and invoking the Holy Name of God overcame all kinds of difficulties. We reached the first milestone. We move on to the next one by the Grace of God Almighty. Thanks be to God...

Fr. Chrysostomos Papasarantopoulos’ Contribution to the Mission of Africa

The contribution of Fr. Chrysostomos Papasarantopoulos to the missionary effort of our Patriarchate is very important indeed. Unfortunately, a number of circles have tried, deliberately or not, to reduce, underrate, or cover...

The Truth

The Church is the natural space of love and peace, and it is wonderful when this House of God is experienced thus, and only thus. It is this God who willingly humbled...

To the Virgin Mary, Mother of God

The All-Holy Word of God ranks you first among all people. No one can travel as far as To reach the heavenly halos Holy borders of your All-Holiness on your high throne.

Greetings from Fiji islands

Pentecost in the Land of Pygmies

«...Αnd when He divided the tongues of fire, He called all men into unity; and with one accord we glorify the All‐holy Spirit.» This hymn sounds like a sweet caress that brings...

Who we are
