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
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
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

"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
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
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
"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:
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
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:
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
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
from the snares, wiles and ways of the
Bind those who would do us harms
whether we know them or not.
Help us O'Lord to not be led into
but deliver us from Evil for yours is
The Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory

and of THY SON, +(sign of cross) Jesus
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
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
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
+Thaddeus the Most unworthy repentant

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.

expanded its military power—particularly its naval power, and Rousseff

"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."

"Berman noted in his
Nation column that Romney's famed "etch-a-sketch" lack of principle may
be the key war-mongering neoconservatives need to get back into power in
the executive branch of the federal government. “Romney’s malleability
is an advantage for his neocon advisers, giving them an opportunity to
shape his worldview, as they did with Bush after 9/11.”"

"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
"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. It is for me a more
attractive fusion than the puritanical soul of England."

"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
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
"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
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
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."

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
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
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

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.
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?
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"....
altering the Life and Teachings of
to accommodate the disease of Political
Jurisdiction (Latin Church = Vatican) of the Catholic Church)
breaking of - or failure and refusal to respect and abide by - the ancient
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
but "Non-Denominational" also includes worshiping Satan's religion of
Islam by praying with them and other
such as 'Pentecostalism,'
any so-called church with "Community
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
skilled spiritual father can help 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.
