16 April 2017. It’s Holy Easter… URA! Attend to St Chrysostom… He NEVER Loses His Relevance


Христосъ воскресе!

Воистинну воскресе!

My good wishes to all of you on Easter, the centre of the Christian Year, and, indeed, of the very Christian life itself. Feast, feast, feast… for the Lord commands it. My love for all of you… “Christian” is something special, and “Orthodox Christian” even more so. Spread the love n’ joy… we’re Christians; that’s what we do!

17 April 2016. The Judgement… In a Paragraph

00 Ilya Glazunov. The Return of the Prodigal Son. 1977

The Return of the Prodigal Son

Ilya Glazunov



Judgement is coming face-to-face with God… nothing else. We decide whether to stay in His Presence… but no one can escape the Love of God. St John Chrysostom taught that… it’s good enough for me. I need no Toll-House fairy tales or notional Fires of Hell… God’s Love is inescapable, warming the believer and burning the unbeliever. God’s Salvation is a Gift… but it’s a gift that we can refuse… but we can’t escape God’s Love even if we refuse His Salvation. God’s Love is both beautiful and terrible… think on it…
