I would like to take this opportunity to welcome the newest addition to our Moderator Team



Upon username!'s retirement, ANTONIS, has kindly accepted the responsibility of moderating the Orthodox-Catholic Forum.

May the Lord bless our new moderator..and may all of you treat him well.

AXIOS!  AXIOS!   AXIOS!

May God grant him many years (of service in His vineyard)!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

I would like to express my full confidence in my beloved spiritual son Antonis.  May he smite our enemies on the cheek. 
Please don't project meta-debates onto me.

Thank you, everyone!
Somewhere on Athos, Antonis groans, and the skulls of the holy brethren with him!

I'm with the camp of 13 million Americans that believe politicians are, or are controlled by, Reptilians. I think only monks can solve this problem. It doesn't seem right that they prefer to ignore it.

"Mouth make trouble, mouth make no trouble." - Sun Tzu

"Guard your steps as you go to the house of God and draw near to listen rather than to offer the sacrifice of fools; for they do not know they are doing evil. Do not be hasty in word or impulsive in thought to bring up a matter in the presence of God. For God is in heaven and you are on the earth; therefore let your words be few." - Ecclesiastes (NASB)

"Horses are animals." - Gebre Menfes Kidus
