Finally some fair and balanced news reporting.  If you live in and around San Antonio, Texas, Orthodoxy and monasticism means "weird, pedophile scam artists" to the average local who pays 50 cents for a paper.  During the last 6 weeks, the San Antonio Express News has run several large front page articles on the latest Christ of the Hills monastery scandal.  They also had some big spreads back in the late 90's during the first round of crimes.  COTH's problems have given Orthodoxy nothing but bad press for years in this area.   It's a shame the godly monks of Holy Archangels have been misassociated at all with them.

Follow the link below to a good article on the beautiful monastery of Elder Ephraim, Holy Archangels Monastery.  Click on the slide show with the photo of Father Dositheos and you get nice audio interviews with the photos.

(Forgive me if you have any problems with the address below - I'm an idiot when it comes to this kind of stuff and couldn't get an automatic link to the website.  Can anybody offer me any tips?)

On the spiritual path somewhere between the Simpsons and St. Theophan the Recluse, but I still can't see the Springfield city limits sign yet.

I was thrilled to see the piece about Holy Archangels in the news this morning, especially with all the garbage going on up in Blanco.  It's about time we had some favorable light in the SA press!

And what a wonderful monastery it is.  That article is right on.
