Lent is a time of moral renewal. It is a compliment the Church pays to us every year, reminding us that we are moral beings. And the protection of the moral conscience is one of the highest responsibilities imposed upon us by the Gospel. Every age sees its attacks on the moral ideal, but ours, appears to me, is most insidious in this respect. Modern philosophy, in fact, hardly considers us subjects at all. Modern scientism, a brand-new philosophy by the way, never known before, (scientism: the endeavor to explain everything by scientific objective laws, physical laws, mathematical laws) strives for total objectivity. The conscience,…

Fr. Chad Hatfield: We are being recorded for Ancient Faith Radio, so we welcome our listeners to the podcast. I’m Fr. Chad Hatfield, one of the chancellors and CEO here at St. Vladimir’s Seminary.

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, one God. [Amen.]

I wish you all a very happy Feast of our Savior’s Meeting in the Temple and the Purification of the Virgin. Before I start my homily, brothers and sisters, I want to point out two things to you. The first is this beautiful epigonation that I’m wearing upon my knee. This shield is the sign of a priest who is a confessor, who’s given the faculties of confession by his bishop, and I’m wearing it today with many thoughts of our dear Metropolitan Paul, Metropolitan Boulos of Aleppo, who is as you know since last April 22 in captivity—we…

When I was doing a graduate degree in theology, it was not uncommon to hear discussions of what was called the “project of modernity.” It was an academic catch-phrase to describe the social-philosophical-political-religious efforts to construct the modern world. The Enlightenment, which took place in the 17th and 18th centuries describes a collection of efforts that changed how people saw the world, how they saw themselves, how they saw their faith, how they saw the state. It brought new ways of thinking into the mainstream of Western culture and newly imagined the meaning and construction of politics; it pondered and reinvented…

The belief that God became Man and dwells among us in Jesus Christ is at the very heart of Orthodox Christian life and worship. Orthodox worship, therefore, involves the whole person — heart, mind, body and soul. In our services of worship Christians pray and sing in liturgies that are not of this world.

Back in 2002 a conference on missions and evangelism with the theme The Gospel in Song: Music, Missions and Evangelism was conducted in Toledo California on August 30th through September 2nd. As a member of the Department of Missions and Evangelism for the Antiochian Archdiocese, I was asked to give a presentation on authentic…
