In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

During all of this Lent, my brothers and sisters, we’ve been, Sunday by Sunday, listening to the readings from what’s called the epistle to the Hebrews. It appears to be not so much an epistle as a substantial sermon, although the last four verses at the end seem to be a covering letter of some kind. The sermon describes itself as a logos paraklēseōs, a word of exhortation, the same word that’s used in the Acts of the Apostles when the apostles get up and speak in the synagogue. They give a logos paraklēseōs, a haggadah,…

Today’s feast of the Ascension marks the transition from Christ’s presence in a limited sense to an unlimited one.  He ascends to this universal presence on account of His being both God and man.
It is a celebration, as it was for the disciples. Parting was not a sorrow. Let us consider why.  The Apostles had been prepared by Christ’s instruction after His resurrection. As the Book of Acts records: “After His suffering, He presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that He was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God.”  (Acts 1:3).  We may reasonably…

Being slung into jail is something most of us, I hope all of us, would seek to avoid at all costs. Nonetheless, if we break the law the State has a right to punish us and imprisonment is not unjust. Consider, however, those who lose their freedom for righteousness sake and not on account of any crime. Today in the near East, imprisonment is the best one can hope for with many believers paying for their faith with their lives. The story in today’s reading from the Acts of the Apostles concerns one such unjust imprisonment.

St Paul and St Silas had been jailed on trumped up charges, namely that they had disturbed the peace through the…

Mr. Adam Lowell Roberts: Welcome to Go Forth. I am your host, Adam Lowell Roberts, and today I’m sitting at a coffee shop with the Very Rev. Chad Hatfield, [of] St. Vladimir’s Seminary, and [I’m] excited to be talking with you today.

Very Rev. Fr. Chad Hatfield: Thanks, Adam. It’s good to be here in Tennessee.

Mr. Roberts: And basically there’s so much we can talk about, so I doubt we’re going to get everything in. We do have an agenda I’m glad about, but to get started, just in case someone is new to Ancient Faith Radio, do you…

Dear friends, autocephaly, autonomy, diptychs—no, these are not obscure medical terms. In truth, these are three of the agenda items for the upcoming Great and Holy Council occurring in 2016, at least, as of now. Each involves, to some extent, the exercise of power and the pull of ecclesiastical strings with outcomes of control and dominance that loom large in the Orthodox world as a whole.

So what exactly are we talking about when we give careful consideration to the meaning of each of these terms? And why should they occupy three of the ten valuable spots on the ladder of conciliar importance? Only the last, the diptychs, can…
