We continue now our reflections on bishops and church structural organization in Orthodox Church history. I want to deal today with the 19th century, and particularly today with the Orthodox Churches in the Ottoman Empire, because this century witnessed the decomposition of the Ottoman Empire, and ultimately its total demise that would be coming up in the Balkan wars and the beginning of the 20th century. But already in the 19th century there were many events that are crucially important in Orthodox Church history, and especially important for us Orthodox today in the 21st century because we’re still dealing…

Fr. John Behr: Your Beatitude, your Grace, reverend Fathers, brothers and sisters: It is my pleasure to welcome everyone to St. Vladimir’s Seminary this evening. For several decades, we have marked the beginning of our spring semester and our patronal feast of the Three Hierarchs with the Annual Father Alexander Schmemann Memorial Lecture. And now for the second time at the beginning of the fall semester and with the feast of the Exaltation of the Cross, we have a lecture in honor of our former Dean, Fr. John Meyendorff. And I guess now that it is a second lecture, it is actually an annual lecture series.

Fr. John…

Megan Martha Carlisle: Hello. I’ll try and keep the welcomes as brief as possible so we can get to the main event. My name is Megan Martha Carlisle, and I am the former president—because we haven’t elected a new one yet—of the St. Herman’s Society for Orthodox Ecology, and I am very pleased that Dr. Elizabeth Theokritoff has agreed to come and speak with us. This is the second time we’ve done this, and we’re hoping to make it a tradition just like the blessing of the tree and the akathist we just saw. So, to give the formal introduction, I’d like to introduce Dr. Peter Bouteneff,…

In the Gospel reading which we’ve just heard, Christ prayed, “Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.” (John 17:11) What does it mean for Christians to be “one”, and what, exactly, was Christ praying for?

The Fathers tell us that this refers to the one-ness of mind and the union of purpose, and the bond of mutual love that we, as believers, are to have, and that includes a unity in communion. In other words, we share the same sacrament, we share the same faith, we share the same goals. Now, to the extent that we are truly part of the…
