MYSTAGOGY: Nikos Kourkoulis: Cancer and the Holy Mountain

Nikos Kourkoulis is among the most well-known and beloved musicians in Greece. On 6 December 2006 he spoke on Greek television station ANT1 of the following incident which occurred to him in 2002.

Mt. Athos: A visit to the Holy Mountain - 60 Minutes - CBS News

60 Minutes on CBS News: Mt. Athos: A visit to the Holy Mountain - "60 Minutes" gets extremely rare access to the monasteries at Mt. Athos, perhaps one of the most sacred places in Christianity

"Both in the Greek and in the Slavonic Monasteries it is customary, as a part of the investiture of the Little Habit and of the Great Habit, and after the Sandals have been put on, to give a Knotted Cord to the Monk or Nun...This Cord corresponds, though very remotely, to the Western Rosary, which originated at a much later date...The custom of reciting prayers upon a string with knots or beads thereon at regular intervals has come down from the early days of Christianity...It seems to have originated among the early Monks and Hermits, who used a piece of heavy cord with knots tied at intervals upon which they recited their shorter prayers...The Greeks call the Cord a Komvoschinion (a knot and a cord)...The Russian name for the cord is a Vervitsa and Chotki.
The modern Komvoschinion, as used by the Monks on Mount Athos, consists of 100 knots, divided into four equal parts by four large beads, with three additional knots in a pendant adorned with a small cross-shaped tassel. The Megaloschemos is expected to make daily 12 X 100 times the prostration down to the ground (metanoia), and in the evening 300 similar prostrations, accompanied with the following prayer: Lord Jesus Christ, Son and Word of the living God, through the intercessions of thine all-pure Mother and of all thy Saints, have mercy and deliver us. If, however, the prostrations, or metanoias, are imposed upon Monks as a penance, the accompanying prayer is: Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy upon me a sinner....

The Knotted Cord used by Russian Monks is the old Slavonic Vervitsa, which is made with 103 knots or beads, separated as follows by means of four larger beads: The first of the larger beads is followed by 17 small beads, the second large bead by 33 small ones, the third large bead by 40 small ones, and the fourth large bead by 12 small ones; and an additional small bead is added at the end. (The smaller for the Jesus prayer, the large to the Virgin Mary)..."

St John of Kronstadt writes:

“The Devil cunningly induces us – instead of irritating us against himself – to notice our neighbors' sins, to make us spiteful and angry with others, and to awaken our contempt towards them, thus keeping us in enmity with our neighbors, and with the Lord God Himself. Therefore, we must despise the sins, the faults themselves, and not our brother who commits them at the Devil’s instigation, through infirmity and habit; we must pity him, and gently and lovingly instruct him, as one who forgets himself, or who is sick, as a prisoner and the slave of his sin. But our animosity, our anger towards the sinner only increases his sickness, oblivion, and spiritual bondage, instead of lessening them; besides this, it make us ourselves like madmen, or sick men, the prisoners of our own passions, and of the Devil, who is the author of them” [My Life in Christ (MLC), p.166].

TWELVE Christian were murdered in Egypt. Two hundred and thirty-two people wounded. And that's just in the past few days. In the same time period, more Christians were killed in Egypt at the hands of Muslims than people killed in Syria or in Libya as a result of protests, riots and resistance.

"The International Monetary Fund’s director, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, was arrested last Sunday in New York City on the allegation of an immigrant hotel maid that he attempted to rape her in his hotel room. A New York judge has denied Strauss-Kahn bail on the grounds that he might flee to France.

President Bill Clinton survived his sexual escapades, because he was a servant to the system, not a threat. But Strauss-Kahn, like former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, was a threat to the system, and, like Eliot Spitzer, Strass-Kahn has been deleted from the power ranks. "

VISIONS OF ELDER ANTHONY
sacalos.tripod.com
In his book “Spiritual Conversations and Edifications of Elder Anthony.”, recently published in Ukraine by Orthodox clergyman Alexander Krasnov, he describes his encounters with a certain Elder by the name of Anthony. The book became a bestseller in Russia.

Christopher Herman 11:02am May 20
All of life in the last times will be one continuous sorrow and pain. And here it is not so important who is guilty of this or that, not at all. Sinful life itself--is already a catastrophe. The more "civilized" the place of habitation is, the more technical and apocalyptic natural disasters there will be. I saw contemporary Sodom--New York, in flames, the furnace of hell, ruins and countless sacrifices. But are they sacrifices?! Sacrifices are always pure, but these that perish are defiled, not having preserved their purity, having rejected the Truth and thrown themselves into the abyss of mankind, that is, demonic superstition. In trying to create a tower like the tower of Babylon for this enlightened government without God and His law, they will be its first sacrifices. The sacrifices of their own rulers even. As one of the steps toward a world-wide government, they will offer at the altar of Baal the lives of their fellow citizens.These rulers, people who believe in a judaism which has been reborn into satanism, in expectation of the false messiah, the antichrist, will do everything to bring about wars and tragedies of world-wide significance.

Elder Anthony

Christopher Herman 11:03am May 20
Now it will be worse, the whole world will be under attack. Everything will be carried out through the government, and therefore one must have as little contact with it as possible. No banking or credit accounts; all this will be controlled by one hand and one head. At closer inspection it turns out that the hand is not a hand, but a sharp-clawed paw, and the head is not just a head, but it has horns. Instead of a face it has the snout of a wild animal, with horrible bared teeth. That is why they are now getting everyone accustomed to banks-for wages, go to the bank, for the pension-to the bank. Soon they will drive everyone together into one stall. It will be a great surprise for people when it turns out that the last penny in their purse has vanished, as it is already happening in the West.

Elder Anthony

Christopher Herman 11:04am May 20
Guard thyself then, O man; thou hast the signs of Antichrist; and remember them not only thyself, but impart them also freely to all. If thou hast a child according to the flesh, admonish him of this now; if thou hast begotten one through catechizing, put him also on his guard, lest he receive the false one as the True. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work. I fear these wars of the nations; I fear the schisms of the Churches; I fear the mutual hatred of the brethren. But enough on this subject; only God forbid that it should be fulfilled in our days; nevertheless, let us be on our guard. And thus much concerning Antichrist.

Jewish Secularism’s Moment | The Jewish Week
www.thejewishweek.com
The danger” to American Jewry, said Michael Wyschogrod, assistant professor of philosophy at Hunter College, is not the threat of conversion to Christianity, but “secularism, the disappearance of the word ‘God’ from the minds and tongues of millions of Jews.”

"Two years ago, a Muslim reporter for the Malaysian magazine Al Islam attended a Catholic mass in Kuala Lumpur with a companion, surreptitiously took communion, and put the wafer in his mouth, only to spit it out later. The May 2009 issue of Al Islam featured a cover photograph of the soggy, partially-eaten wafer—to the horror of local church authorities outraged at this desecration of the sacramental host, held by Roman Catholics to be the actual trans-substantiated body of Jesus. A complaint was lodged with the police, demanding investigation and redress."

Special Instructions from apostle1.com to you the viewer:  On many of the articles and information that we post, there are links to other web sites and pages regarding News, Information, etc.  Be sure to click your "back" button in order to return to this web site... so that you can completely read the many other articles, news & information provided. 

In addition, when you have reached the end of an article, you will notice that there is much that can be viewed by clicking on an article after our "Disclaimer Notice".  We have taken the liberty to provide other information such as helps in definitions and understandings that are truly Orthodox Catholic (not of the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church)... There is much, may be (according to some) too much!  But there is never such a thing as "too much" when attempting to learn and live the life a true Christian.... For indeed if we are true Christians, we each and every one of us needs information that will enlarge , or - at least, enhance our spiritual understandings. 

We must entrust our soul into the hands of God the +Father, the +Son, and the +Holy Spirit who, as one God (the Holy Trinity) is the source of all life and abundance for us who are still in this earthly vessel.  He knows our strengths (and our weaknesses) for he gave us strength... It is our failings and sins that make us weak in spirit!  If He were to give us one dollar in conformity to our strength, we should not seek five, so as not to grow faint under the weight of having too much, so that the gift which is intended to serve to the good would not serve to the our great condemnation.  We must flee from our sinful falls not to reclusion, not to the desert, but to self reproach, to confession of our sins - to repentance! Our perplexity, our reasoning and our will - we must plunge them into the abyss of the munificence and Providence of God!

Thank You!

Even though we don't always give the credit they deserve... We want you, the viewer to know that they are a part of our life and living... They are, according to their nature & degree of ability, truly Christian in Spirit and in Truth for they have YOU, the viewer in mind as a part of their own concerns too, as we do too!

 

However... there is something else we wish to warn you about.

 

DISCLAIMER NOTICE: The views expressed at this website regarding any article not directly connected to religious content is the opinion or commentary of the author which we may not necessarily believe in, accept or support, and some religious articles we may not accept or support either. We take no responsibility or liability for the content of any news item or article presented as any information provided which you rely upon requires that you, the reader/viewer, take action to verify its worthiness on your own.  We have deduced to a minor degree, that the information provided by the author is such that warrants posting for you the viewer/reader only... and that any statements or purported facts, including any news item, is for you to verify as to its authenticity.  We take no liability and no responsibility for its accuracy whatsoever! You who are new visitors, may wish to read a very short article below entitled "The purpose for presenting our Daily News section" Sadly to say, we take no pleasure in stating that some of the items we post are not from what we would call true "Christian" organizations. But we post it because it provides another side of the proverbial story.  The Church, after all, is supposed to be a temple for sick souls (sinners) without distinction between their worse sins or otherwise, but it seems to some organizations that they say much about others, but fail and refuse to upbraid themselves and their members for their own sins...)

 

"Never, never, never let anyone tell you that, in order to be Orthodox, you must also be eastern. The West was Orthodox for a thousand years, and her venerable liturgy is far older than any of her heresies."

- Blessed St. John Maximovitch of Shanghai and San Francisco

 

The purpose for presenting this Daily News section:

Daily News is very important to those who are true Orthodox Catholic Christians.  For without knowing or gaining information for understanding about what is happening in one's local area and around the world, you could  find yourself faced with denied services in the secular area, lack of income, even (although it sounds far-fetched) ability to worship openly for the time is not far off when all will have to decide if they wish to follow the Anti-Christ through the One World Church and One World Government as prophesied by the Apocalypse, the Book of Revelation of St. John or follow the faith delivered once and for all which will cause for many to be denied the abilities to survive under those kind of conditions, causing for one to consider other options. 

 

Many of those who subscribe to, and some who have caused or are the cause for, these things to happen are involved in or with the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church (which is not the seat of all things "Catholic") as well as its protestant daughters such as the cultic Jehovah's Witnesses, the Pentecostal Churches, the Church of Latter Day Saints also known as the Mormon Church and far too many more to list. 

 

Yet, at this web site we do provide some of the reasons about why they are opined to be the harbingers of that which is prophesied in Holy Scripture for the bringing about of the End Times which we have already entered.  It is not necessarily their individual members or parishioners that should be blamed since they are only the "Sheep" and not the Shepherds... So do not think we castigate individual people of themselves as we castigate those "money changers" who Jesus Christ chased out of His Father's House as the Bible Describes; for they exist in these present times too.

 

Events are already rushing toward that time in which this is beginning to happen and will become more fully wide-spread. In these present times all you need to really do is look around both your local and larger areas as to what is really on-going through.  Things so very little or miniscule that they are barely noticeable except to the more informed observer may become apparent. 

Those little things are the laws of the land, economics, politics, the degrading and erosion of those rights and liberties afforded by the Constitution of these United States of America and many other things such as the manner with which entertainments have taken over much of the populace, entering into and becoming a major focus in worship, and more. 

We ask you, if you don't want to believe us... Have you heard, seen or found what is termed (of the many terms being used) that there are "holding areas" or "camps" or "Closed/Fenced communities" being built by GOVERNMENT? 

Here in North America, especially in the United States of America, we must admit that what Russia has come out of (a communistic, atheist country) we are entering into.  And one last thing that needs also to be understood... Something very important to those of you who are "Catholic" in the Roman sense of its jurisdiction....   And, we believe this also holds true for many who are "Orthodox" whether "Eastern" or "Western"....

[ * Non-Denominational = Synchrestic Ecumenism, Disease of Scholasticism, altering the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ to accommodate the disease of Political Correctness and CULTIC PROTESTANTISM, and the Roman Jurisdiction (Latin Church = Vatican) of the Catholic Church) breaking of - or failure and refusal to respect and abide by  - the ancient Seven Ecumenical "Do Not" Canons which leaves everything else open to God's gift of creativity... failure & refusal to abide by and have respect for those who diligently protect one of the other Pillars of the Church, the Seals of the Confessional, but "Non-Denominational" also includes worshiping Satan's religion of Muslim, Islam by praying with them and other heretics such as 'Pentecostalism,' 'Jehovah's Witnesses,' 'Mormons,' 'Church of Christ,' any so-called church with "Community Church" in their nomenclature and others who by their false and misleading dogmas and doctrines are actually against the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ upon whom and for exacting reason we are called "Christian" in both spirit and truth from which non-denominational protestant sectarian claimants have departed from as being so-called Christian] Only a skilled spiritual father can help you!

Remember: You cannot ride two horses or serve two masters for one of them will be harmed by your thoughts, your very words and your actions which is to blaspheme the Holy Ghost (Spirit) who will depart from you.  And when the Holy Spirit departs, the great deceiver (unbeknownst to you) will rush in to fill the void under disguise of being the Holy Spirit!  Testing of the Holy Spirit to insure it is the Holy Spirit does not, for many a Sectarian Protestant and Roman, work because the Great Deceiver (Satan) is most skilled in worming and snaking his charms around your mind and heart to feign being the Holy Spirit.  Remember, Satan has the same gifts similar to the Holy Spirit but Satan's gifts are UN-HOLY and lead all who accept him (unbeknownst to you) to perdition.

Missionary Conversations with Protestant Sectarians

The lives of monks consist of a podvig [(spiritual struggle) exploit] of repentance and of withdrawal from the world. They flee from judging their neighbor in his moral falls, considering themselves to be sinners and the worst of all men.

But, when it is demanded of monks and other clergy, that they remain humble and indifferent to questions of faith, then do they cast off humility and obedience. It is demanded of them, by the conscience of the Church, the faith in and for the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ that They rise up when the truth of Orthodoxy is threatened. They are supported in this by a living conscience and by a sense of responsibility for that faith for which our forebears-martyrs and confessors alike-sacrificed everything, even their very lives.  As a result we have opted to present to you the story about "Modern Day Ecumenism and its horrors" along with various links to who just a few of these Synchrestic Ecumenists are who threaten the root and branch of Christianity as exists in true Orthodox Catholic Christianity (Both Orthodox and Roman)!

The following articles and information do not necessarily reflect the attitude or beliefs of this jurisdiction or those who are with us in spirit and truth!

 

"I understand the idea of sodomy and homosexuality, but to say that homosexuality is not a sin is incorrect and not just in my mind but all of Orthodoxy and again, not just in Orthodoxy but all of Catholicism and again, not simply all of Catholicism but all of Christianity with the exception of those who have this in their personal life as sin or are very close to someone who does. Celibacy or Married Life is the ultimate ideal.  For both Homosexuality and Heterosexuality are truly sinful if... and below is the hard part of this understanding..." (Ed. Note: We have never said "homosexuality is not a sin or okay... however, there are those who, being homosexual, are that way for a variety of reasons.  Jesus Christ talked of these kinds as referring to Eunuchs.  The conversion tactics employed by many other groups, bespeaks of a "politics" that is not wholly honest either spiritually or even materially.  For, in their endeavors they have failed to show forth the truth that one is driven into a "closet" style of life.  It is better, we believe, to become wholly celibate, be it a homosexual or even heterosexual... and to learn what "celibacy" really means and requires).

 

If a man looks on a woman who is not his wife with lust, he has sinned. If he and she are married to other people he has committed adultery. If a man looks at a man with lust he has sinned the same as a man who looks at a woman. Sodomy does not have to enter into it, lust for someone is a sin by itself and must be removed. But people do this all day long to be sure but it is still a sin. To say that homosexuality and heterosexuality are not a sin due to their lusting, allows both heterosexuals and homosexuals to live in sin without repentance and this is wrong to do to them spiritually.

 

It is for the sake of their own soul that one has to recognize sin that is in them and not to excuse it regardless of the sin or the preference of the sinner. Sodomy is indeed a sin regardless of what any one may tell you, the act of attraction or the lust is a sin even without action and simply must be repented of by both heterosexuals and homosexuals. I must also add this; woe to all who misguide others into sin and especially those who are of the clergy who do this. For the sake of your own soul and others, you must recognize this and repent. I know that it is not easy to overcome and if it is never overcome then one must live a life of constant repentance, that is the only choice.
