минуле і сьогодення час

Святий Албан († 22 червня, 209) — перший англійський мученик, язичницький солдат, який захистив християнського священика і ним же був навернений. Після того, як він виявив це римській владі, його бичували і обезголовили на місці, що згодом було йому присвячене як Абатство Святого Албана (монастир).

Церква вшановує його пам’ять 22 або 17 червня і його символом є олень.

JOURNEY TO ORTHODOXY

Mother Thekla, who died on Aug. 7, 2011 at aged 93, was the last surviving nun to have occupied the enclosed Orthodox Monastery of the Assumption in North Yorkshire, but became better known to the wider world as the spiritual muse of the composer Sir John Tavener. Mother Thekla wrote the following letter in 2009, when she was 91 years old. You can read more about her here.

╰⊰¸¸.•¨*

Dear “John”,

I understand that you are on the way to becoming Orthodox. I know nothing about you, beyond the fact that you are English.

Before we go any further, there is one point I should make clear. I have not been told why you are about to convert, but I assure you there is no point whatsoever if it is for negative reasons. You will find as much “wrong” (if not more) in Orthodoxy as in the Anglican or Roman Churches.

So – the first point is, are you prepared to face lies, hypocrisy, evil and all the rest, just as much in Orthodoxy as in any other religion or denomination?

Are you expecting a kind of earthly paradise with plenty of incense and the Continue reading “A letter to a new convert by Mother Thekla, Abbess of  Orthodox Monastery of the Assumpion in North Yorkshire, England”

Saint Elfleda (Ælfflæd), Abbess of Whitby, England (+714) – February 8

Saint Elfleda (Ælfflæd), Abbess of Whitby, England (+714)

February 8

Saint Ælfflæd (654–714) was the daughter of King Oswiu of Northumbria and Eanflæd. She was abbess of Whitby Abbey, an abbey of nuns that were known for their skills in medicine, from the death of her kinswoman Hilda in 680, first jointly with her mother, then alone. Ælfflæd was particularly known for her skills in surgery and her personal attention to patients, as was Hilda, who was known for her personalized medical care.

Most of Ælfflæd’s life was spent as a nun. When she was about a year old, her father, King Oswiu of Northumbria, in thanksgiving for his victory over Penda of Mercia at the Battle of the Winwæd, handed her over to abbess Hilda to be brought up at Hartlepool Abbey. When Hilda left to found Whitby Abbey in Continue reading “Saint Elfleda (Ælfflæd), Abbess of Whitby, England (+714) – February 8”

JOURNEY TO ORTHODOXY

A team of 120 members of the London Robbery Squad arrested me, my builder and electrician in Devon on 17th April 1991. I had to strip, put on white paper suit and wait in a cold empty cell for 3 days and then I was charged with various conspiracy offenses and remanded in custody at Exeter Prison. I had often driven past the prison and had never considered that one day I might be a guest of Her Majesty!

As an ex-policeman, I was warned to ask for the ’43’s’ by the escorting officer, but I really hadn’t understood what that meant. A mistake had been made and I felt sure that it was Continue reading “The Father Of Lights – By Constantine Georgiades, England – Journey to Orthodoxy”

Saint Richard the Pilgrim, the King of Wessex, England (+720) – February 7

Saint Richard the Pilgrim, the King of Wessex, England (+720)

February 7

Saint Richard the Pilgrim (also known as St. Richard of Wessex,[1] St. Richard the King, St. Richard the Saxon, St. Richard of Swabia. St. Ricarius) is a saint of England.

It is believed that Saint Richard was born in Wessex, England and his real name is uncertain.[1] He was the brother-in-law of Saint Boniface (Archbishop of Mainz) and father of Saint Willibald (Bishop of Eichstätt), Saint Winnebald or Winibald (Abbot of Heidenheim) and Saint Walburga (Abbess of Heidenheim). Richard is depicted with Wuna, who is reputed to have been his wife and their three children at St. Walburga’s shrine in Eichstätt.

Richard is said to have aided his gravely ill three-year-old son, Willibald, to recover through prayer.

Richard renounced his royal estate and set sail with his two sons from Hamblehaven near Southampton circa 721 A.D. They landed in France and temporarily stayed in Rouen. From there, they set off on the pilgrimage route to Italy, where they prayed at shrines situated along the way.

He died unexpectedly after developing a fever in Lucca, Tuscany, where he was buried in the Church of San Frediano (founded by the Irish monk Frigidian). Miracles were reported to have occurred by his tomb and a veneration cult emerged. The people of Lucca embellished their accounts of his life, describing him as an English prince.

Richard’s niece, a nun called Hugeburc or Huneburc (Huneburc of Heidenheim), wrote an account of the pilgrimage, entitled “Hodoeporicon”, which Willibald, his son, continued during his journey to the Holy Land. Historians date the text between 761 and 786.

Some of Richard’s relics were transported to Eichstätt, where Willibald eventually became Bishop.

Richard’s feast day is 7 February.
