Rev. Father Deacon Christopher Herman News (DCHN) Presentations:'s note, opinion and commentary: 

We thank Rev. Father Deacon Christopher Herman, the son of our former spiritual father, Vladyka Michael Peter Herman of reposed memory for providing us the articles and their various links.

We believe that what is presented is a step in the right direction to bring our Orthodox Faith alive to all and a means to cure some of the ills that separate our Roman faithful from the root, ground and base of all things Christian: being Orthodox Catholic Christianity that began in the A.D. 800's and culminated in the official schism of the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church from Orthodoxy in 1054 A.D. 

By presenting these articles and informational pages and subsequent, hoped for, weekly presentations, this endeavor will reach a wider audience and provide a means for dialogue.  For it is in and through the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ, our Savior, that love, compassion and understanding may come about.  In saying this truth, it also means that we make another attempt to fulfill the ideal of why we are called "Christian" ...

Orthodoxy is not a religion.  It is CHRISTIANITY itself! To a true Christian, the events taking place through out the world and locally in the USA today is important because of how it may (and in some instances has) affected our religious rights and freedoms here in the U.S.A and in some other Western World Countries already.

Initially we had begun by "Subject" but found that by "DATE" is a better format.  Thus, the former entitled "Concerning" below are a form of archival resources while the remainder is by dating. 

Please note that when you click on an article, you will be taken away from this web site and you will need to click on your "back button" or "Return Button" (sometimes an arrow signifying 'back' ...)

As Thou, Father, art in me and I in Thee; that they also may be one in Us. (John 17:21)

"He warned everyone against lack of faith not only by His words, but also by the multitude of events which amazingly proved the power of faith and the powerlessness of mistrust or doubt in God’s protection and salvation from danger.

Lack of faith comes in different forms: some people have little faith in God because He does not punish His enemies; others doubt they would be able to entreat God to grant them their desires, especially when their conscience bothers them with the thought that God will not forgive them their sins; still others fear that God will deprive them of all earthly goods and subsistence. This triple manifestation of lack of faith estranges many people from God and immerses them in various forms of perdition.

The source of our lack of faith is our excessive conceit, i.e. when we think more of ourselves than of God, rely more on our own powers than on God’s help."

"His most important work, Heliotropion, was begun by St. John while he was still a teacher in the Academy of Peter Mogila. He published it in Latin, and only later, in Tobolsk, when be had completed it in its final form, did he publish it in Slavonic. The title is the Greek word for helianthus (sunflower). The image of the sunflower, dear to the Saint even from his youth, was for him in analogy which helps to explain the agreement of the human will with the will of God. The sunflower has the particular characteristic of daily turning its face from one side to the other following the movement of the sun. Sunflowers are a common sight in the rural landscape of southern Russia, and St. John could not but be attracted by the natural symbolism they afford. The book Iliotropion, in fact, treats of the Divine and human wills:

"The only true means for attaining our happiness in this life and in the next is the constant turning of our attention within ourselves, to our own conscience, to our thoughts, words, and deeds, so as to raise them to passionlessness: this will reveal to us our mistakes in life and indicate the only path to salvation. This path is the entire devotion of our whole being, of our whole self with all the circumstances of our life, to the will of God."

Subject: In reply - Re: Prayer
Blessings to you, and those with you, including those who have had a change of heart!  I do hope and pray they have read the "Thoughts On Prayer (Monk - Peter {Sergin} Most Profound and soul shaking"? 
Yes! I believe in YOU because the Lord has indeed blessed you! 
My commentary in the "Thoughts on Prayer" are not necessarily nice... I used to be nice clergyman at one time, and to some degree, I'm told that I am still.  But, with all that is on-going through out the world these days... I cannot and will not take the soft-spoken, Mormon-type, and other denominational type of speaking as though I am a very humble non - assertive Priest.  I cannot afford to.  Especially since where I have been and seen what I have seen (which is not very much when compared to many Orthodox Clergy in other parts of the world).  While I still live and have the mental abilities to do and say, by the Grace of God and only (I hope) by the Grace of God do I speak in a manner that does anger people, especially those who are what shall I call them... hard-core anti this and anti-that and other "anti" things.  But, hopefully I speak and write with a Truth that cannot be denied as to what is being said?  It is hard for me to gauge as I'm on the inside of me!  When I feel the promptings of the Holy Spirit, and because of where I've been and what I've seen... and because of my own (and many) sins of omission and commission (Forget for a moment, intentionally that often we do and say things out of frustration, sometimes fear without thinking, and unintentional harms, even those that were done intentionally to, shall we say protect either (vanity) ourselves or others... we may not have a moment to think things through have to act and/or say whatever it is that was done)  - - - either way... in my book, for me, I have indeed sinned because of the hurt and/or damage I've brought to the scene (or proverbial table).  And while we should not dwell on our sins (omission or commission) I find myself doing just that and mentally (hesychast way) of doing the Jesus Prayer... Lord, Jesus Christ, son of God and son of man, have mercy on me miserable sinner by my thoughts, words and actions (deeds) ...
It is also one of the reasons why the "Our Father" is said differently from the normally acceptable for... Jesus did not say WE MUST PRAY exactly or we must pray this way, but "pray in like manner," which does leave open the door to creativity, and that door is where the Holy Spirit came into me and thus the prayer you've seen on-line which is similar to this:
Our Father
You Who are in Heaven
Let Your Name be hallowed
Let Your Kingdom come
Let Your Will be done here on earth
as it is in Heaven.
I/We do thank YOU from our heart/s and Soul  
for our/my material and spiritual food for this day
and ask for YOUR Forgiveness
as we forgive those who have transgressed against us,
be they of the past, or present,
of the living and the reposed,
whether it was done for right, wrong, real or imagined
we forgiven them and pray they too forgive us as we ask forgiveness from YOU, O'Lord,
Help us O'Lord, Our Father, that we be protected
from the snares, wiles and ways of the Evil One,
Bind those who would do us harms
whether we know them or not.
Help us O'Lord to not be led into further temptation
but deliver us from Evil for yours is truly
The Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory
of THEE +(sign of cross) O'Father,
and of THY SON, +(sign of cross) Jesus Christ,
and the +(sign of cross) HOLY GHOST.  Amen!  Amen! Amen!
Liturgies are important for the reasons that they were initially created.  First: A Liturgy is a semi-re-enactment of the Life and Teachings of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!  Second: A Liturgy has always been used to teach those who were (in former centuries) illiterate, as Icons also do the same.  Remember the old saying, a picture says a thousands words (or something like that).  Well, Liturgy is an Icon in itself and provides with the words (during Divine Liturgy) along with the display of icons (images) that help to teach the people.  As you may have guessed, the altar is sort of a stage... renactment of the Life and Teachings, which the Priest brings to the altar, helps the people to learn without having to resort to the manner of "school learning" (as they say).  It is a method which brings the message, the WORD to the people in speech, and in actions and in picture type icons.  As some have said, when (for the first time) they have walked into an Orthodox Church (especially if its an older one) they feel they have walked into Heaven on earth!  That is what Jesus Christ through Holy Spirit brings to you and those in attendance...
One last thing before I close.  When you write, and it is difficult for many to remember this, but we should (I SUGGEST) from here on out add the full name JESUS CHRIST when we make the sign of the cross, in our very writings and other areas, even when we actually talk to anyone and everyone... Why?  You know the answer!  Far to many use the name of "CHRIST" and there are, as you know "many christs" even though they do not call themselves "christ" or think in terms of their false and misleading doctrine and speeches on stage and off as being or having been led by the minion of an antichrist... for the true man of Sin, will be known and is referred to the ANTICHRIST!   Because of what is on-going in these present times with such false doctrines and theologies having gained far too much ground... we must, I feel (personally speaking as it is my opinion and I haven't heard anyone disagree or even agree on this) re-educate ourselves to always use the name JESUS CHRIST and no longer just CHRIST! 
Know that you are a blessing and that the Lord does bless you according to your very nature and degree of ability to do that which He desires of you... putting aside the human condition of sometimes being bullheaded (as I am)... the Lord bless you, as I also bless you, and pray not  only for you, but those who are truly with you in spirit and truth!
I am also providing this e-mail to Abouna +Gregori and my Priest in Oregon, Father Jimmy... I believe it will help either one or both and bring them up-to-date so we are all, HOPEFULLY, on the same page and partially or wholly in tune or agreement? We'll see... For what you say is important and a lesson in the travails of a Priest here in the U.S.A which is not to far different from many around the world, except their sufferings are oft times even worse than yours, Abouna +Gregori, mine, or Father Jimmy.
+Thaddeus the Most unworthy repentant one in the vineyard of this life for the very Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ!
Monk Michael's response

Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ,

You should know that you are in my constant prayers, I wanted to clarify something that I had recently written last and that is regarding the help that I have received. I want you to know that I believe in my heart that it is your prayers that have helped to open the doors where others who would not have ordinarily helped have had a change of heart and have now helped. My brother-in-law who called himself Satan on earth is now where I am living and constantly questions me on understanding Jesus Christ and seeks truth earnestly, this could only be through prayer, my son-in-law who openly despised any form of Catholicism and argued constantly against me when I first began writing in my articles about the truths that I was having placed on my heart and what I was learning by constant study of church history which ultimately led me to you and I left the Protestant worship completely has had a change of heart and is trying to keep me writing, this is due to prayer.

Your prayers are of more value than the material things that I needed but the material things are needed to reach to the world. Without your prayers these things would not be. I wanted you to know that.

In Christ,
Rev. Fr. Michael

"Brazil has significantly expanded its military power—particularly its naval power, and Rousseff has kept the pace. This will change the dynamics of the southern Atlantic significantly, creating a true Brazilian “zone of exclusion” extending deep into the ocean above the oil riches recently discovered there."

"It is time that David Cameron came to grips with the hard fact that the prime concern of his Lib Dem “partners” is to ensure that there will not be a Conservative majority after the next election, since that would leave a powerless rump of a party with neither relevance nor future. To that end, Nick Clegg seems ready even to abandon his cherished proposal to create a senate, elected by proportional representation to ensure a permanent Lib Dem blocking minority. This is the apparent price of an unspoken deal with Labour to thwart the redrawing of constituency boundaries that would equalise the electorates and remove the gross bias in favour of Labour which has grown over recent years."

"The principle that Washington will not bail out states is not part of the Constitution; it was established when Congress rejected pleas by the states in the 1840s, and nine of them subsequently defaulted on payments due on their loans. As a result of that experience, states introduced balanced-budget rules of varying effectiveness into their own constitutions. The federal government has assumed the debts of no state since then.

Is the federal government’s “no bailout” stance still credible, given its rescue of US banks and automobile companies during 2008-2009? Yes, and the reasons are instructive for the eurozone. The federal government is responsible for roughly 60 per cent of all government spending in the US and issues the lion’s share of government debt in the form of US treasury securities. These bonds serve as safe assets in the banking system and are used by the Federal Reserve in monetary policy operations. Contrast this with the European Union: its debt obligations are small relative to those of its member states, and private banks and the European Central Bank hold large amounts of national sovereign debt. If EU states default on their debt, it threatens the financial system of the monetary union as a whole. Default on state debt in the US would harm the financial portfolios of rich investors, who hold most state bonds, but affect the US financial system less than such an event in Europe."

"For Englishness is this and Jewishness is that. The two seem mutually contradictory: one all tact, reserve, meaningful silence, the other none of those things. Had we only gone en masse to Ireland, we might have fared better in a country where the English language is spoken and written with the same lost traces of a suppressed one. The greatest literary Jew and the greatest work of literary chutzpah was written out of there. As Beckett said, the Jews think too much and drink too little.

"Well, the Big Business guys are transparent about one thing: They can’t stand the idea of the public holding them to account for their attempts to buy elections and influence policy, or even that they be prevented from corrupting the government contracting process through campaign spending.

The latest: They are so terrified of having their political spending disclosed that they are pushing in Congress legislation that would prohibit the government from requiring contractors to disclose their campaign-related spending.

Senator Susan Collins, R-Maine, is carrying their water, with the Orwellian “Keeping Politics Out of Federal Contracting Act,” a bill that recently passed the Committee on Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs and may well become law unless the public demands otherwise. To take action to stop this abomination, go here.

The Collins initiative is in response to an excellent initiative floated by the Obama administration, but which the White House failed to implement. The simple idea was to require government contractors to disclose their campaign-related spending, including the kind of secret corporate campaign expenditures enabled by the Citizens United decision.

Contractor disclosure is important for two key reasons. First, virtually every major corporation enters into contracts with the government, so if contractors are required to disclose their campaign spending, that would cover most giant businesses. Second, the corrupting pall of campaign-related contributions is worst in the area of government contracting, since this is where the direct payoffs to corporations from political spending are highest. Disclosure will help mitigate the campaign-contractor corruption nexus."
The Big Business guys have been unwavering in their strident opposition to disclosure of corporate c...

"Attending Bilderberg 2012 as an 'international' participant was Bassma Kodmani.

So who is Bassma Kodmani? The answer to that question is also the answer to the question: what the hell is happening in Syria? This is where it gets interesting (and worrying) for Bilderberg followers.

Kodmani was at Bilderberg in 2008, the last time it was here in Chantilly. She is a member of the European Council on foreign relations – its parent group, the council on foreign relations, is a sort of über lobby group, a couple of rungs down from Bilderberg, but still hugely powerful.

There's a lot of CFR/Bilderberg crossover. Honorary chairman of both is David Rockefeller; co-chairman of the CFR is Robert Rubin (he was here); and on the CFR's board of directors are Fouad Ajami and Henry Kravis, both at Bilderberg 2012.

Bassma Kodmani is also the executive director of the Arab Reform Initiative. This body, set up in 2004 by the CFR, is helping to steer "a comprehensive process" of "democratic reform" in the region. In 2005, the Syrian National Council came into being. Bassma Kodmani was a founding member, and is on the executive committee. Kodmani is one of the SNC's two spokespeople, alongside Radwan Ziadeh (who has a flawless Washington pedigree – look him up). According to its website, the SNC is a non profit public policy research organization register in the District of Colombia and headquartered in Washington DC. Just up the road.

I asked Tarpley about Kodmani. He doesn't mince words. "She's a Nato agent, a destabilizer, a colour revolution queen. The fact that Kodmani was there is a scary one for Syria", says Tarpley."
To those gathered outside, at least, it looks increasingly like, at this year's Bilderberg, the war ...

"Four eyewitnesses on the hotel staff told me Willard Mitt Romney was here at Bilderberg 2012. My four eyewitnesses place him inside. That's one more than Woodward and Bernstein used. Romney's office initially refused to confirm or deny his attendance as Bilderberg is "not public". His people later said it wasn't him.
So, was he being crowned, or singing for his supper? Will Mitt Romney follow in the august footsteps of Clinton, Cameron and Blair to have attended Bilderberg and then shortly become leader? Four years ago, Senator Obama shook off his press detail and nipped (many think) into Bilderberg. This exact same hotel.
Did Romney have to get down on one knee in front of David Rockefeller? This sounds flippant, but it's a serious question: has Bilderberg switched allegiance? Are they going to toss away Obama after just one term?
I put this question to author and Bilderberg expert Webster Tarpley. Is Wall Street going to throw its chips in with Romney? "I think there's a frisson that's gone through the ruling class against Obama," he says.The leak we had from the flirty hotel staffer corroborated this. "They don't seem to like Obama very much," he said.
Tarpley's conclusion is this: "They want Romney and Mitch Daniels, who will run together as moderate rightists." Governor Daniels of Indiana was on the official list."

"The annual secretive Bilderberg Group conference, which brings together the capitalist world’s financial, political, and media kingpins in various venues, was held this year in Chantilly, Virginia, near the back gate of Washington Dulles International Airport. The Marriott Westfields resort hotel venue allowed official and unofficial guests to make their way from the airport as clandestinely as possible, thus avoiding the large number of protesters representing both the progressive “Occupy” and conservative “Tea Party” movements who gathered at the government security perimeter erected for the “private” conference.

This year’s Bilderberg conference featured three guests from Russia. However, unlike the “establishment” figures from Western nations, including the United States, Britain, Germany, France, and Canada, two of the three Russians represented the anti-Valdimir Putin opposition. Present at Bilderberg 2012 were Anatoly Chubais and Garry Kasparov, leading anti-Putin Russian politicians.

Chubais is reviled among a majority of Russians for shepherding the wholesale privatization of Soviet and Russian Federation state enterprises under the administration of President Boris Yeltsin and Prime Minister Viktor Chernomyrdin. The chief benefactors of the privatization were a handful of Russian entrepreneurs who soon became billionaire oligarchs. Many of these oligarchs soon found themselves in prison in Russia or in exile in Britain and Israel to avoid prosecution in Russia. Today, Chubais is the head of Rusnano, a leading Russian nanotechnology firm."

"Justice Secretary Ken Clarke and former business secretary Peter Mandelson weren’t the only Britons who attended the Bilderberg conference — along with leading international politicians and industrialists — in Chantilly, Virginia.

The BBC had a man there, too, at the weekend: Marcus Agius, senior independent director of the BBC’s executive board.

Agius, who is married to Katherine Rothschild and earns a £750,000 salary in his day job as chairman of Barclays Bank, is paid £47,000 by the BBC for 28 days’ work per year, principally advising the BBC Trust, which represents the interests of licence-fee payers.

This might explain why the corporation did not report on the event this year.

*BBC insiders say the much- maligned coverage of the Jubilee river pageant might have implications for the internal applicants hoping to succeed Mark Thompson as director-general. Among those whose cards may be marked are George Entwistle, the corporation’s BBC head of vision, and Helen Boaden, head of news. Which is good news for another internal candidate Caroline Thomson, the chief operating officer, who is not strictly involved with programming so is untainted by what has been dubbed “the Fearne fiasco”."

Christopher Herman 8:01am Jun 12
Those who pursue the carnal mode of life and in whom the will of the flesh is
imperious -who are, quite simply, carnal -are not able to conform to God's will
(cf. Rom. 8:8). Their judgement is eclipsed and they are totally impervious to
the rays of divine light: the engulfing clouds of the passions are like high walls
that shut out the resplendence of the Spirit and leave them without illumination.

('s Note, Commentary, opinion & Disclaimer Notice: We Have many Contributors to our DAILY NEWS SERVICE, as well as many other Updates & Information provided - We are thankful for our Desert Angels, Our Flying Foxes, Our Flying Squirrels and our many other contributors... 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.
