New Canonical Western Orthodox Monastery
« on: August 03, 2015, 08:14:41 PM »
Great news out of the Priory of St. Laurence & Our Lady of Glastonbury!

"On the evening of July 16, 2015, we received word from His Grace Bishop John that His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph has granted full recognition to our monastic community and designated us as a Monastery in the Western Rite Vicariate, under the guidance of Bishop John.

We give thanks to God, to Our Lady of Glastonbury, and to our Hierarchs for this great blessing and ask their continued mercy upon our humble efforts to embrace, live, and share the Orthodox Faith through the ancient, Orthodox way of St. Benedict of Nursia and the liturgical traditions of Western Orthodoxy."

May the Lord bless their holy work.

I've heard her name on the radio many times, because the College of St. Scholastica has (or at least used to have) a catchy advertising jingle.

I'm not going to be posting as much on OC.Net as before. I might stop in once in a while though. But I've come to realize that real life is more important.

Thanks be to God.
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.

So, how come Antiochians can get monasteries, even WR monasteries, in other countries except for this one?  That can't be solely because of the late Met. PHILIP, can it?

Holy Monastery of Our Lady and Saint Laurence Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America, Western Rite Vicariate

From the site:

Quote
During 2008 - 2010, Father spent time at two small Orthodox monasteries (one Eastern, one Western). Then, in early 2010, he accepted an invitation to move to Ohio and pursue his vocation there in a Greek Orthodox monastery whose observance was modeled on the Rule of St Benedict.

So a Byzantibe rite Benedictine monastery? What would that be?

the people on this forum have to stop taking themselves so seriously. None of us are some modern-day Athanasius, we all just have nothing better to do.

I believe they're talking about St. Theodore's House in Galion, Ohio. I know they were doing something Benedictine-oriented (an acquaintance lived there, at least briefly), but I don't know what the details were, whether they were Byzantine Rite living somewhat under the Rule or using Benedictine Use liturgics or what.

Glory to God! Many Years!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
