What you really need is a woman.

O fleece bedewed with every grace, O Virgin Queen and Mother
Rejoice, O unwedded Bride!

You can't give this up, can you? No matter how sophistical and regrettable the posts you must craft to pursue it.

Mor is enjoying holding up a mirror for me to recognize myself in.
"Love ... is an abyss of illumination, a mountain of fire ... . It is the condition of angels, the progress of eternity" (Climacus).

Quote from: Seekingtrue
Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy

Fr Seraphim Rose would disagree with you on that.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 19:34

I've split off the side conversation about Fr. Seraphim Rose into a new thread here:

http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,69506.0.html

Let's try to keep this thread quotable, my dears.

Having read a fair amount of Abbot Tryphon statements over the years, I do feel that the frequent contact with the public has an overall harmful effect, in that it creates an image of monasticism as a factory for inspirational quotes and cat pictures.

Regardless, it is part of Orthodoxy to believe in the ecumenical truth of the three (or seven, or eight) Ecumenical Councils,

Sorry, but everything doesn't come down to Jews and Nazis.

Even though, many of them  and many others on here think it does.

If you are always certain in your heart that God created everything about 6000~ to 7000~ years ago, then you will have no doubts whatsoever.

Back to Jainism, Rishabhanatha is said to have lived for 84 lakh purva (or 592.704 x 10^18 years). That's over a thousand times the half-life of thorium-232.

For anyone who has gone through the same circumstances tell me your experiences with dating as an Orthodox in a culture dominated by the non Orthodox.
When dating Roman Catholics I've found it can be awkward deciding whether to have the first date in the midst of created or uncreated purgatorial fire. You don't want to pressure her, but at the same time you don't want to compromise.

But it had not been in Tess's power - nor is it in anybody's power - to feel the whole truth of golden opinions while it is possible to profit by them. She - and how many more - might have ironically said to God with Saint Augustine, "Thou hast counselled a better course than thou hast permitted."
