Are St. Gregory Palamas and Benedictus Deus necessarily in conflict? It seems that when Benedictus Deus proclaims that the blessed see the divine essence, it could very well simply mean a denial of the claim that the blessed have the vision of God mediated by a creature (which it expressly condemns right after stating the blessed see the divine essence). Now, St. Gregory Palamas's position is certainly not that the energies which the blessed see are creatures!
Also note that St. Gregory Palamas himself, in Theophanes and the 150 Chapters says that one can be fully orthodox and say that the blessed participate in the divine nature (he remarks that quite a few Fathers spoke this way); so long as by this it is meant not the divine essence without qualification, but the energies which the divine essence has by nature.

Prayer Forum / Cultural courtship problems for acquaintance

Someone I ran into currently ran into cannot marry the woman he loves due to the fact that the family of the woman does not approve of intercaste marriage (they're Indian).  Please keep them in your prayers.

Zdravo Svima
Ja sam Charlie iz California
Samo malo Srpski razumem.
Radjiom u Amerika. Moj prededa i prebaba
Doslao iz Beograd i Macva serbia pre sto godina.od amerika
Excuse my mispelling. My family left the old country over 100 years ago. Picked up a bit from my grandparents and am trying to learn the rest. But we still observe the old ways and customs Slava ect.

Dobrodošao Charlie :)
Ja bih rekla, da nije loše sa Tvojim srpskim, ako već je prošlo 100 godina od ove migracije. Ako ostaću u Poljskoj, volela bih (i bih bila iznenađena) da moji praunuci tako govore srpski ;)
Koju Slavu slaviš?

Please pray for the Dad of my sister-in-law.  He has 20% use of his heart, kidney trouble, a bleeding GI, and an infection.  It came on very fast, whatever happened.
