Finding Comfort in Time of Sorrow
There are no words to express the depth of our sorrow when we think of the tragedy in Newtown Connecticut. Fr. Tom Soroka provides a Christian perspective on sorrow as he reminds us of our utter dependance on God.<div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.ancientfaith.com/~ff/AncientFaithCommentaries?a=Z58Trsd23FE:J7hZGBolGp4:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/AncientFaithCommentaries?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.ancientfaith.com/~ff/AncientFaithCommentaries?a=Z58Trsd23FE:J7hZGBolGp4:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/AncientFaithCommentaries?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.ancientfaith.com/~ff/AncientFaithCommentaries?a=Z58Trsd23FE:J7hZGBolGp4:B2eO5mnCXqg"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/AncientFaithCommentaries?d=B2eO5mnCXqg" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/AncientFaithCommentaries/~4/Z58Trsd23FE" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

After the Election
Fr. Philip LeMasters, Dean of the School of Social Sciences and Religion at McMurry University, argues that the primary political action of Orthodox Christians is not found in voting, carrying signs, spouting slogans, or putting bumper stickers on cars. Rather, our most fundamental political witness is to participate in the Divine Liturgy.<div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.ancientfaith.com/~ff/AncientFaithCommentaries?a=SPd_g2hTHVk:O3EKngDRK84:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/AncientFaithCommentaries?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.ancientfaith.com/~ff/AncientFaithCommentaries?a=SPd_g2hTHVk:O3EKngDRK84:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/AncientFaithCommentaries?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.ancientfaith.com/~ff/AncientFaithCommentaries?a=SPd_g2hTHVk:O3EKngDRK84:B2eO5mnCXqg"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/AncientFaithCommentaries?d=B2eO5mnCXqg" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/AncientFaithCommentaries/~4/SPd_g2hTHVk" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Asceticism
Fr.

Character
Fr. Philip LeMasters argues that if raising everyone's self-esteem by watering down substantive visions of the good life is our preferred mode of operation, then heaven help us if we want our kids to worship anything other than their own self-centered desires.<div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.ancientfaith.com/~ff/AncientFaithCommentaries?a=vHaJmBUTN0Y:nDRcgd8D81o:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/AncientFaithCommentaries?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.ancientfaith.com/~ff/AncientFaithCommentaries?a=vHaJmBUTN0Y:nDRcgd8D81o:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/AncientFaithCommentaries?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.ancientfaith.com/~ff/AncientFaithCommentaries?a=vHaJmBUTN0Y:nDRcgd8D81o:B2eO5mnCXqg"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/AncientFaithCommentaries?d=B2eO5mnCXqg" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/AncientFaithCommentaries/~4/vHaJmBUTN0Y" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
