The Life of a Saint: Saint Charalambos

Saint Charalambos
Feast Day: February 10

Charalambos was a priest who suffered inhuman tortures and martyrdom at the hands of pagan tormentors, greater than any other martyr. Despite possessing divine courage and steadfastness of faith, placing him among the Saints, he was still human; the sharpness of pain that he felt, was the same as that of an ordinary man. We venerate him as a Saint in the highest tradition of a martyr for his steadfast refusal to renounce the Lord.

Growing up in the town of Magnesia, Asia Minor, during the second century, Charalambos was ordained a priest at an early age. He served his home town in a province fiercely hostile to Christians. Thanks to his reputation as a preacher and man of God, he was placed as a leader of the tiny Christian body that grew steadily, despite the odds. He brought the light of the Lord's love to everyone in the community, subsequently bringing upon himself the envy and wrath of those in power.

The Mystery of Art: Becoming an Artist in the Image of God
by Jonathan Jackson

Emmy Award-winning actor and musician Jonathan Jackson explores the profound implications of human creativity in the image of God, along with the process of becoming an artist (of any sort) dedicated to practicing his or her art from the context of a deep relationship with God. The true Christian artist is not necessarily one who treats religious themes, but one who creates through the power of the Holy Spirit to the glory of God.

Endorsement:
With the lyrical immediacy that narrates his own path as a Christian and an artist, Jonathan Jackson draws on both his own experience and the richness of the theological tradition of the Orthodox Church to present not only intelligent thinking on aesthetics nor his contemplations on spiritual matters, but a fresh and genuine spiritual path for all artists and indeed for all persons. A delight to read, this book is not merely written—it sings.
—Fr. Andrew Stephen Damick, Author of Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy and An Introduction to God

My Journey to Crete 2014

John Zeakis who is a Reader/ Chanter at the Church of “The Annunciation of Our Lady - Evangelismos” recently travelled to Crete in June/July of 2014. He has written the following informative article on his experiences together with some interesting facts about the island.

We welcome other readers to contribute their stories.

 

Crete, the largest of the Greek islands, is home to great monastic heritage where the monastic life is still pursued. Hundreds of monasteries and convents exist around Crete, with their doors always open to visitors. It is not uncommon to be greeted with a drink of fresh water and some Loukoumia. While many monasteries have become desolate and are mainly used as museums, the monastic life is still enduring. It is even common for people, as they pass by a Church or monastery, to make the sign of the Cross. It is refreshing how the inhabitants still embrace their faith and keep it as part of their culture. Not all people are like this and many have lost their way but with God's help, we hope that they will be led back.
