Thoughts for Great Saturday: the Holy Fire

Holy FireToday is Great Saturday for Orthodox Christians.
NB: my apology, I scheduled this post many months ahead, and made a mistake: this year, Great Saturday is on April 27 for us Orthodox Christians.
However, the content is still relevant.

A good opportunity to revisit the book by Skarlakidi
on the topic of the Holy Fire in Jerusalem,
on that day for thirteen centuries

Thoughts for your weekend: “Heaven is not just the sky over our heads”

Father Christophe_LevaloisOn the occasion of the recent publication of his book Le christianisme orthodoxe face aux défis de la société occidentale [Orthodox Christianity and the Challenges of Western Society] (Cerf, 2018) Father Christophe Levalois gave a fascinating interview to a French periodical.

It is entitled

“Heaven is not just the sky over our heads”.

The journalist and the author dialogue on the challenges Orthodox believers face today in our Western society.
