The Lady of Pompeii
« on: May 25, 2015, 08:09:54 AM »
What can you tell me about "Our Lady of Pompeii" and the 54 Day Rosary Novena Prayers ? I have a catholic friend who all of the sudden became very devoted to his religion and this practice and has also recommended it to me. He says he has intense feelings during this and that it is very strong.

I can tell you from a classically Orthodox PoV everything you just described sounds a little fishy.  I have not heard of this devotion but I'll look into it.  But I urge you to stick to the Jesus Prayer, your prayer book, and the advice of your father confessor above all.
Antisemitism, racism and prejudicial nationalism should have no place in Orthodoxy.  For to paraphrase  St. Paul, there is neither Jew nor Greek, neither male nor female, slave or freeman, in the Christian Church.
