Daily Thoughts
00000

"From God comes grace, but from us comes labor. Therefore, let no one even think that the holy apostles relied solely on the God-given grace, or that it was easy for them, or that performed their great work in the world without effort. Gathering his last strength the Holy Apostle James raised himeslf to his knees, stretched forth his hands towards heaven and fervently prayed to God saying: 'Lord, forgive them this sin, for they know not what they are doing.' While he was praying thus, wicked men struck him with stones from all sides...killing the saint of God." St. Nicholas of Zica

What is Orthodoxy?

"Sometimes called the Eastern Orthodox Church, the Orthodox Church is the first Christian Church, the Church founded by the Lord Jesus Christ and described in the pages of the New Testament.  Her history can be traced in unbroken continuity all the way back to Christ and His Twelve Apostles.  For twenty centuries, she has continued in her undiminished and unaltered faith and practice.  Today her apostolic doctrine, worship, and structure remain intact.  The Orthodox Church maintains that the Church is the living Body of Jesus Christ."
