Gloria 2015...Orthodox Convention at Pune


“I am not sitting, I am on a journey”.

One of the best known of the Desert Fathers of 4rth century, travelled once on pilgrimage to Rome. Here he was told of a celebrated recluse, a woman who lived always in one small room, never going out. Skeptical about her way of life- for he was himself a great wanderer- called her and asked “Why are you sitting here? To this she replied: “I am not sitting, I am on a journey”.

I am not sitting, I am on a journey. Every Christian may apply these words to himself or herself. To be a Christian is to be a traveler, our situation, say the Desert Fathers, is like that of the Israelite people in the desert of Sinai: we live in tents, not houses, for spiritually we are always on the move. We are on a journey through the inward space of the heart, a journey not measured by the hours of our watch or the days of the calendar, for it is journey out of time into eternity”. (Kallistos Ware in the Orthodox Way)

Wife of Egyptian Christian Martyr in Libya Speaks Out

+++ AMEN+++


Wife of Egyptian Christian Martyr in Libya Speaks Out
Mariam Farhat, the wife of Malak Ibrahim Senyot, one of the Egyptian Christians martyred in Libya, told ICC, “I’m very happy that my husband went to Heaven, He is with Jesus now. He kept the faith, and was martyred in the Name of Jesus Christ. His faith was very strong, I’m proud of him. He has raised our head to heaven and honored us and all Christians. We are very happy for him. We are sure that he is in a very wonderful place with the Christ, Martyrs and Saints in Heaven now, and that has comforted us. I hope that the faith of my son (Phelobatir, age 2) be like the faith of his father.” Mariam is 27 years old.
