Keynote Address of Metropolitan Kallistos at HCHC

His Eminence elaborated on how this “image” is in the image of Christ, the Logos of God, and simultaneously in the image of the Holy Trinity.

Perhaps video will become available later.

Something else with Metropolitan Kallistos:

Does God suffer when we suffer? This is a must listen!

Pre-Communion Prayer

I've never come across it before, not in any of the Slavic churches I've visited. The prayer was composed by St. John Chrysostom.

Lord have mercy!

Fr. Nicholas Asks a Question

Nicholas Denysenko: Mary as the Healer of Schism

His talents could be put to better use at a blog other than Pray Tell, but what other blogs about liturgy are there, other than Latin traditionalists ones? There is nothing in the middle, something in the middle that can acknowledge the Latin traditionalists and yet uphold the vision of the best of the 20th century Roman-rite liturgical movement. (Pray Tell is not "centrist.")

Never Thought I'd Post Something from Commonweal

With approval... there may be something worthy from time to time but it's just not worth the effort to scout it out. Slap Them Sooner: Confirmation & First Communion, Together by Rita Ferrone (via Pray Tell)

Because of two recent posts, both by Thomas Berg, I've removed Mirror of Justice from my blog list that is to the side. I may check on it from time to time for legal commentary and announcements and such, but because of the heterodoxy and liberalism of at least one contributor, and the tacit approval of the others, it no longer deserves an endorsement here. It warrants no more attention or consideration based on authority than any popular heterodox or poorly-reasoned Roman Catholic blogs and websites. The sooner the internet goes away, the better.

Synod. Cold Shower for the Innovators
The preparatory document for the October session puts the brakes on communion for the divorced and remarried and on homosexual unions. New voices from Africa and Latin America. All in support of perennial doctrine

With Cuba, Ukraine, China he is realistic in the extreme, even at the cost of afflicting the faithful. But then he challenges Muslim countries on religious freedom. And at the UN he is fighting hard against abortion and “gender” ideology
