God's creation is unexplainable to me.

I don't understand how everything exists, it is a marvelous wonder.

Just look at the glorious heavens!

http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/

We're so honored to have been created as human beings

Gen. 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

St Dorotheos interprets the hymn of St Gregory in his book 'Practical Teachings of the Christian Life, he says:

'Let us realize that we have been made in the image of God who created us, let us honor the archetype, let us not insult the image of God according to which we have been created.

Which of those who want to create a picture of the king, do not use good colors, and so dishonors the king, and is thus punished?

On the contrary, he uses all the precious and bright colors, worthy of the image of the king.

Sometimes he also uses gold leaf on the picture of the king, and tries to show all the robes, so that the royal image should have all the royal characteristics, and each person, seeing the picture, will think that he sees the king himself, the prototype itself.

Therefore the image is very bright and glorious, we, also, let us not dishonor our archetype.

We have been crated according to the image of God, let us make our image clean and honest, worthy of the archetype.

Since, the person who makes an image of the visible king, is punished when he dishonors him, what will we suffer if we despise the image of
God, which is inside us, and as the saint says, 'If we do not offer the image of God as clean as its original glory'.

Let us therefore honor the archetype.'


Gen. 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

This book is so great, a must read for all christians.

http://www.philokalia.org/abba_dorotheos.htm

Listen to what he says in the first chapter.

You can buy the whole book, with the narration of it, online.

The person recorded the whole book on a cd, I own it, and its really, really, good.

The philokalia is a book written for, ready by, quoted by, monastics and those who are heavily into the spiritual life, having spend much time and study about prayer, fasting and the monastic life in general.  If you read the text "Art of Prayer" you will have a great introduction as to what i'm talking about:   http://www.amazon.com/Art-Prayer-Orthodox-Anthology/dp/0571191657

The website is about the philokalia, it is a website, if you don't know the difference philokalia is greek for Gk. φιλοκαλία, "love of the beautiful"

Its a website with lectures and other great audio recordings on it.

I think the philokalia should be read by all Orthodox christians, not just monastics.

Every Orthodox christian should at least read St Maximos the Confessor. philokalia vol. 2

How does one pray for telemarketers and meter-maids.
Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

This shows how much the demons hate us.

They don't like us to pray very much.

They really, really, hated these men.

Evagrios the Solitary
On Prayer:
One Hundred and Fifty-Three Texts


Philokalia book 1

106. We have heard that the evil one attacked a certain saint so fiercely as he prayed that, when the saint lifted up his hands, the evil one changed himself into a lion and raising his front legs fixed his claws into the saint's thighs; and he kept them there until the saint lowered his hands, which was only when he had come to the end of his usual prayers.
107. There is too the case of that great monk, John the Small. He lived the hesychastic life in a pit, and his
communion with God was not interrupted even when a demon in the form of a serpent wound itself round him,
chewed his flesh and spat it out into his face.
108. You have surely read the lives of the monks of Tabennesis. When Abba Theodore was preaching to the
brethren, two vipers crawled under his feet; but he calmly made an arch of his feet and let them stay there until
he had finished his sermon. Then he showed the vipers to the brethren and told them what had happened.
109. We read how, when another spiritual brother was praying, a viper came and wound itself round his leg. But he
did not lower his hands until he had finished all his usual prayers; and because he loved God more than himself,
he was not harmed at all.
110. Do not let your eyes be distracted during prayer, but detach yourself from concern with body and soul, and give all your attention to the intellect.
111. Another saint living the hesychastic life in the desert was attacked, as he was praying, by demons who for two
weeks tossed him like a ball in the air, catching him in his rush-mat. They were completely unsuccessful in
distracting his mind from fiery prayer.

112. When another monk was practicing inner prayer as he journeyed in the desert, two angels came and walked on either side of him. But he paid no heed to them, for he did not wish to lose what was better. He remembered the
words of the Apostle: 'Neither angels, nor principalities, nor powers . . . shall be able to separate us from the
love of Christ* (Rom. 8: 38-39).
“The testimonies of the western teachers I neither recognize or accept. I surmise that they are corrupted.

Haha, excellent!

I never had standard Fosters, just the bitter. That was bad enough, I can't imagine the horror that is the lager.
No one in Australia actually drinks Fosters. Its a joke we've played on the world and you all fell for it.
And yet, it's head and shoulders above our own practical joke, Bud Light.

How does one pray for telemarketers and meter-maids.
I guess the way that Jewish Rabbi in Fiddler on the Roof prayed for the Tsar:  "May God bless and keep the Tsar...  far away from us!" :laugh:

This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. (1 John 1:5-7)
Holy Mary, You are the ladder of life. St. Yared
My sons/daughters, come and I will teach you the fear of God. Christ is light.
He watches everything high; He is the king  even over those in the water. Eyob 41:25

IIRC Fosters isn't even brewed in Australia.

According to their own website, www.fostersbeer.com, it's brewed in the US in Fort Worth, Texas, by Oil Can Breweries, using a licence from Foster's International. Hmm, Oil Can....sounds about like it tastes.

They should call it Tin Man.  I don't think it would sell as well, though (so much for truth in advertising).

Too true; Budweiser, Coors, Busch, etc ... It should be illegal to label this fermented goat urine as beer.  :)

Ahh, how good it is to live in Beervana! ;D  I believe we have more microbreweries here in western Oregon than anywhere else in the U.S.

Are EO allowed to drink beer during Lent? We're not.
