New Orthodox website www.theartoforthodoxy.com
« on: March 05, 2019, 09:40:37 PM »
Hi guys. I am a fervent Coptic Orthodox Christian from Australia.

Just wanted to let you guys know that I started a new website found at www.theartoforthodoxy.com. You can also follow me on facebook https://www.facebook.com/theartoforthodoxy/ and on instagram https://www.instagram.com/theartoforthodoxy/.

My resources are based heavily on the writings and the lives of Orthodox saints and holy men and women - mainly Russian, Greek and Coptic. I have some great resources about various topics - suffering, humility, prayer, the Jesus prayer, music, saints, martyrs, fasting, psychology - from all those Orthodox families. And there are sermons, videos, articles and posters.

Here are some snippets. Check out the above links out when you have time!

This looks superb.  I would urge you to add in some Romanian and Georgian saints, and from our OO side of things, some Syriac, Armenian and Ethiopian saints (I would suggest from among the latter group you look at the poetry of St. Jacob of Sarugh and St. Gregory of Narek, the writings of Sts. Severus and Gregorios Bar Hebraeus, and the commentaries of St. Dionysius bar Salibi).  There is also the material of St. Isaac the Syrian, who has long been venerated by both the OO and EO, although we now know St. Isaac was a member of the Church of the East, interestingly enough.

I recently purchased a volume of the liturgical poetry of St. Gregory of Narek and was blown away by how good it was.

Yeah i have Romanian and Georgian things too. I dont know much about Syriac, Aremenian and Ethiopian saints. I think the Ethopians might have a lot of great things as I saw links to a few things before. Ill hopefully check out those names u told me.

Yes I have heaps of St Isaac the Syrian things. But to be honest my absolutely favorite Orthodox sources in the world, having > 4 years of experience in very deep and careful studying of Orthodox texts (almost daily), are St Theophan the Recluse, St Ignatius Brianchaninov and the lives of the saints. Most especially St Ignatius Brianchaninov. I honestly don't think there is any other saint in the church who explained the spiritual life better than him.

Even other Russian saints speak about him in tremendously great admiration. Check from "As is well known, the oral and written accounts of him by all" at http://oprelesti.ru/index.php/what-is-spiritual-delusion/253-danger-of-delusion-when-practicing-the-jesus-prayer for proof of this. I have some of his things on my website.

I liked your website, thank you. I am so glad you linked up, http://www.pravmir.com/ I could not remember the name of it. Someone forwarded to me one of the most helpful articles in my life when I was coming to Orthodoxy and had it saved on a computer that crashed. I could not recover the article and couldn't remember the website. When I saw the link on your page, it jogged my memory it was there. Then I could only remember one tidbit of the article, searched on those few words and found it! I share it here:

Great resources thanks. Yes, orthodoxinfo.com was instrumental in my formative years when learning about Orthodoxy and coming out of Protestantism.

The article, Luther Had His Chance, spoke to me immensely when I first read it: http://orthodoxinfo.com/inquirers/tca_luther.aspx

I split off some posts that I deemed sufficiently off-topic and sent them to a more appropriate section.  In this thread, please stick to the topic in the OP.

Ooooooow yes www.orthochristian.com is my absolute absolute favourite. If someone wants to remember only one wesbite to learn about Orthodoxy, I thoroughly recommend www.orthochristian.com.

They have extremely high quality and well written articles about almost every topic as well as beautiful beautiful accounts of 100s of modern day eastern Orthodox saints which I absolutely love to read. I've printed out articles from that site and from some of the others, and put them on a large rack that I personally bought - in the front entrance of my Church.

Jesse Dominick one of the admins for the site does incredibly well in his job. Very zealous man. God bless his efforts!!

Although the majority of the Russian websites I quote are anti-Coptic, but I don't let that bother me. If I was born Catholic or Protestant nd I discovered Orthodoxy, then I'd become Russian Orthodox. But being Coptic Orthodox, I believe there really isn't that much of a difference between Copts and Russians. We have spectacular saints and ascetics that live till now huddled up in monasteries in Egypt. I've met a few.

Oh Noah you were talking about www.orthodoxinfo.com. Yeah that one is good too. But i just think the tone Patrick takes in some article are quite provocative to others. He could explain his perspective in a more loving way.

Yes, I've heard others complain about his tone. But you have to understand for protestants, it is the correct tone (if they're willing to listen.)
