I'm interested in the ministry of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:18)

I'm an Orthodox Christian who has found a lovely, sparsely populated corner of the internet where Catholics and Orthodox can discuss the apostolic witness in a way befitting a Christian.

Together we'll share ideas, study a variety of things (patristics, Scripture, saints, books, etc.), and pray with/for one another.

Healing has to take place when brokenhearted, separated people spend time together.

HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT 📣 🥳💥🚨

You won’t believe what just happened!

Heading to a Damascus Catholic men’s retreat for the weekend wearing my ADOT hoodie. Let me know if you have any prayer requests or if you’d rather I shoot anyone with paintballs in your honor instead. @Kyle_Whittington apparently in the evenings the priests are known to break out quite the bourbon selection!

To shamelessly rip off Trent Horn, I'll be doing Ben's Free-For-All-Friday! Where I share an interesting, insightful, useful, or worthy of discussion video I found while meandering through Youtube or Ye Olde Podcatcher! Today's is dedicated to our great, magnanimous patron! It's a bishop teaching his altar boys how to properly play their cymbals for Liturgy!

Thoughts on the Neeson/Hallow debacle.

One of my favorite movies, The Scarlet and the Black, starred Gregory Peck. Gregory Peck was nominally Catholic, but disagreed with the Church on contraception, abortion, and women’s ordination. As far as I’m concerned, his political ideas died with him, but the work still stands.

Becket, starring Richard Burton, is also really good. Burton himself admitted that his own life was the furthest from saintly, the work still stands even though Burton is dead.

Then there’s the myriad of Renaissance artists who were rumored to be sodomites that created many beautiful works. The work still stands, and barely anyone cares about who the artist even was.

Now, if you want boycott Hallow, this is not an attempt to stop you. By all marks, boycotting Hallow for this is a noble and respectable practice. However, your cooperation with evil in this matter is so remote that it is not required at all to boycott the show.

Should the Christian West Restore Its Original Approach to Fasting? Part 3
Why Fasting is an Essential of Mark of Christian Discipleship, the Catholic Church, & the Orthodox Faith

Kyle from Barrel Aged Faith is back again to wrap up our series on fasting! I think he's saved the best for last on this one as we look at the role fasting has played in the ongoing division between East & West, as well as the role it can play in fostering unity.

Should the Christian West Restore Its Original Approach to Fasting? Part 2
Why Fasting is an Essential of Mark of Christian Discipleship, the Catholic Church, & the Orthodox Faith

In an effort to spice things up and keep fresh content rolling, I asked my friend Kyle from Barrel Aged Faith to share some wisdom with us on the conversation between East & West. Kyle masterfully crafts thought-provoking conversations focusing on the fullness of ancient Christianity in four areas: Evangelical, Charismatic, Orthodox, & Catholic. Last week, Kyle shared the story of how he first discovered fasting as a serious Christian discipline, and how he entered more deeply into that tradition through engaging the more ancient practices. This week, we'll be examining the historical practice of fasting in the Christian West. 

My prayer is that articles such as these will be edifying to your spirit and will cause you to examine your own disciplines, perhaps move you to discuss them with your spiritual father/spiritual director. I also hope that this will shed some light and understanding on the different practices across the great Christian Tradition.

Kyle masterfully crafts thought-provoking conversations focusing on the fullness of ancient Christianity in four areas: Evangelical, Charismatic, Orthodox, & Catholic. Here, in this series, he'll unpack the discipline of fasting - what are the ancient roots of the practice? What caused the divergence in practice between the Catholic and Orthodox traditions? Is this difference an obstacle to unity? 

My prayer is that articles such as these will be edifying to your spirit and will cause you to examine your own disciplines, perhaps move you to discuss them with your spiritual father/spiritual director. I also hope that this will shed some light and understanding on the different practices across the great Christian Tradition.
