Helleniscope Is Temporarily Out of Order

Our dear friend, Nick Stamatakis, called me a little while ago.  His website —Helleniscope–is temporarily out of order.  If all goes well, it should be up and running in a day or two.  In the meantime, he wanted us to get the message out. He thanks you for your patience.  

Ukrainians MIA at Gathering of Bishops of the Ecumenical Patriarchate

Last I checked, one of the major eparchies that belong to the Ecumenical Patriarchate in the United States is the Ukrainian archdiocese.  In fact, as far as number of parishes are concerned, they have 85 second only to the GOA.  They also have two bishops, Metropolitan Anthony and Archbishop Daniel.  So why weren’t they at […]

Is There an Off-Ramp on the Horizon?

Before we answer this question, we have to answer these questions:  What exactly is “globohomo”?  And why are more and more Ukrainians not wanting to go fight and die for it?   According to those in the know, “globo-homo” has nothing (or very little) to do with forcing the homosexual agenda on foreign populations.  It’s more […]

“And the Gates of Hell Will Not Prevail Against It”

When Jesus spoke these words (Matt 16:18), I imagine that His disciples did not grasp the full import of its meaning.  After all, what was this “Church” which Jesus was speaking of?  They were just a dozen random Galileans wandering around Judea, listening to Him preach and perform an occasional miracle.  They had no idea […]

Sunday of the New Martyrs and Confessors of Russia

At church today, during his homily, our priest spoke about the martyrdom of Christians during the first three centuries of the Christian Era and how in the previous century alone –and in one country–more Christians died and suffered for the faith than those first three centuries.  Personally, I can foresee a time when in America, […]

Ivan Provorov: AXIOS!

Yes, we know a lot of you have published this story and we appreciate it, but we wanted to give our own shout out because the kid deserves it! The other day, Ivan Provorov, a player for the Philadelphia Flyers, was roundly criticized for refusing to bend the knee to the popular culture.   https://orthochristian.com/150569.html When […]

Is Schism Brewing in Cyprus? [Edited]

It would appear so.   As predicted by yours truly, the decision to “recognize” the schismatic sect in Ukraine would not be the last word.  So far, only three local Churches, Athens, Alexandria, and Cyprus, chose to do so.  The process they undertook was far from elegant –or canonical for that matter.  No formal votes were […]

The King’s Funeral

Today, His Royal Majesty, Constantine II, King of the Hellenes, was laid to rest at Tatoi, the former royal estate of his dynasty. The funeral was attended by royalty and performed at the Metropolitan Cathedral of the Annunciation, in Athens.  You can view these historic events below. Rather than comment further, and at a loss […]

Will Fort Sill Be Another Fort Sumter?

For those who may not know, the Pentagon announced the other day that up to 100 Ukrainian soldiers are going to be sent to Ft Sill, which is near Lawton, Oklahoma, for training on the Patriot missile system.   Needless to say, this isn’t setting well with many in the Sooner state.  If a stray missile […]

Dancing with the Devil

It’s bad enough that Globalist puppet and billionaire oligarch Volodomyr Zelensky is outlawing the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.  Watching the people gathered at the Kiev Caves Lavra for the last time, chanting “Christ is Risen!” filled me with profound sadness.  I imagine it did many of you as well.  (You can access this story here: https://orthochristian.com/150335.html) […]
