"Prejudice Makes Prisoners of the Hated and the Hater"



A CONFESSION OF FAITH AND MORE! Regarding the End Times, when they come, and more especially these present times!



Webmaster Note:


    In 2007 we stopped providing these Quotes from our Vladyka +Thaddeus as he concentrated his efforts more on those with HIV/AIDS and the Daily News Section.  Recently, July 2011, we were asked if we would resume these "quotes".  Vladyka +Thaddeus, reluctantly, does so with fear and trembling for reasons that will become more clear in his quotes which are nothing more than what the patristic fathers have often said. The following is a reply from a viewer and those with him in spirit and in truth:


    "There are those, over the year or two that the "Quotes from Thaddeus" have been up, who take issue because they feel that a monk, be he Bishop, Metropolitan or Archbishop, or priest, should say little to nothing but let silence be the teacher.  If this was a perfect world, that might be the best approach. 


    In prayer, a group of us who are Orthodox Benedictine (OSB) and Thaddean Fathers (SSJt.) from mainline and non-mainline Orthodox jurisdictions have sought answers to questions and find that His Eminence's "Quotes" page is become necessary especially for those who are not strugglers on the path of "Orthodox Catholic Christianity".  Many who say that he should say nothing are more involved with self-interests and 'politics'. 


    Some of us are not even associated with the Jurisdiction under His Eminence but belong to a large prayer group across the North American Continent.  We have unanimously agreed that much that could be posted by His Eminence, has not been posted, even such as we have suggested because we find that he is less imbued with 'politics' and being a Metropolitan Archbishop as he is with prayer and being a spiritual father to many of us who have called on him for guidance.  Thank you!"



    Quotes from Father Thaddeus was originally a series of questions and answers placed in a "Basic Theme" format.  The questions and answers were based on real events, actual happenings, news, letters and information garnered from throughout the world and questions posed. 


Some questions were under the "Basic Theme" approach but, with revamping, may not necessarily reflect on the theme itself, but have (as a side issue) some relevance. Before you ask a question, we suggest you visit two important pages that may contain the answer to your question(s). First: Pascha Page - Second: Our Vladyka's "Message From the Primate" and even our "Orthodox Information" pages.   Questions come from real people around the world.  You may wish to send us your question by clicking on the following image scroll:

July 27, 2011 - Wednesday

    I am a man of this world and not enough of the other. 


    Yet I have more to apprehend of this spiritual struggle while in this life for the life to come..


    Pray with sincerity of heart, mind and soul for the patience, humility and obedience which can only come from and through Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit here below...


July 26, 2011 - Tuesday


     It is a sad commentary on the United States of America when organizations such as Patriot Action Network and other such groups for protecting and upholding the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights; are either incapable or unable to stand firm in their so-called beliefs for which they claim existence. 


    And, all those who are for FREEDOMS, RIGHTS, even the Gun Rights groups; do not stand strong for their beliefs by taking more formidable action to maintain them in both the halls of Congress as well as in the various States of the USA.  Frankly speaking, it is our opinion that this is but one of those groups... Always wanting more donations to support themselves, but what are they really supporting?  Talk, talk, and more talk... NO ACTION!  WOW! Isn't that a sad commentary?  And, they are not making progress from where we stand. The old adage of, "If you are not part of the solution, then you are a part of the problem" holds true today as it did in yesteryear!


    Such actions to participate in and with those groups in maintaining to that which established these United States of America, is a GOD GIVEN right which has become a destructive force against the very root, ground and base of all things CHRISTIAN, that is solidly planted in Orthodox Catholic Christianity from which the Roman Jurisdiction did, in fact, schism from in 1054 A.D.  And, from which came the various Protestant denominations. 





    Orthodoxy is more than a religion.  Regardless of the nationalistic name; It is CHRISTIANITY at its roots! To live, breathe and be ONE in spirit and in truth is a Struggle out of pain of heart for the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ and His Holy Apostles.

A General Confession:


    The following comes to us from a General Confession which the Mother Superior uses for all the sisters at Midnight Services.  I feel such is good for us to learn something important from this for the same may be applied to our own daily prayers for which we seek Forgiveness from the Lord our God who is the Source of all life and abundance.


    O my Savior!  I have promised to devote my whole life to Thee, to fill my whole soul with love for Thee alone!  I examine my heart and find myself guilty.


    I have sinned thorugh lack of faith, spiritual indifference, feebleness in fasting and prayer, irreverence before holy things, the lack of fear of God....


    I do not want anyone or anything to stand in the way of my movement toward Thee, O Jesus Christ!  Now I ask myself is this so?  And, I find that many things have prevailed over me: food, clothing, warmth, the comforts of life, attachments, and every kind of passion...


    In loving Thee, O Lord, I wanted to have holy love for my neighbor, but look upon myself and see how I am proud, self-loving, easily offended, envious, jealous, irritable and so on... (here one could name other sins).  And how much ocmplaining, impatience, judging, and every kind of ill will toward others I find in myself.


    Forgive, O God, all my sins, enlighten my mind with the light of Thine understanding, strengthen my sluggish, weak soul, which always inclines my will toward evil; cleanse my passionate heart and breathe into it a striving for purity, chastity, humility, meekness, calmness, mildness, simplicity, and, more importantly, love for Thee, O my Most Sweet Jesus, so that I might be with Thee forever.  Amen!


    While the service does not end here: the sisters then ask forgiveness of one another, prostrating themselves at each other's feet and being reconciled.  Then, after singing the touching hymn, "O Most Sweet and Most Generous Jesus!" they silently go their own cells.


    What do you think?  Would not such nocturnal prayer and Christian forgiveness form a bright paradise in the souls of the sisters?  Yes, undoubtedly it would. 


    May it be suggested that you use the same prayer, with modification for your own needs, so that you may gain a spiritual feeling for the Love God has for you?  Such beauty and simplicity in speaking to God, asking Him who is the Source of all life and Abundance, not respond in due time?  Yes, I believe He would when such prayer comes from the depth of one's own heart and soul with such sincerity of desire and purpose to do His Will and not one's own. 


    What a terrible contrast that exists in the outside world away from the sisters.  A world outside that is lying in evil.  There, the people are pleasing Satan, with dancing, screaming, drinking, drugging, and all manner of impurity - - - but in such a little corner of the world for those sisters, a humble service to the Lord is conducted, with spiritual singing, tears of repentance, and purity of soul.  There, in the outside amid the merriment and revelry in seemingly friendly company, simmer mutual enmity, hostility, envy, and hatred in people's hears.  But, in the grace-filled assembly of the sisters, in a sacred prayerful unity, the opposite takes place - - - all evil feelings fade away and are destroyed. 


    After the Midnight Service, the dismissal, the sisters come together in front of the revered icon of the Savior, and here they deeply repent of all their weaknesses and sins according to the general confession that is above.

Who is a Christian?

What is "Catholic" and what is the Church?


    On talking with someone recently who said, "I'm Just a 'Christian; because I don't belong to any religion of man" 


    I told her that Christianity is the religion... which comes from the root ground and base of all things handed down through time and history by Jesus Christ and His Holy Apostles. The Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church schismed (split) from Orthodoxy in 1054 A.D. because Cardinal Humbert trampled the Holiest of Holies in St. Sophia's, even while on horse back riding into and beyond the iconostasis which is a desecration and an automatic anathema ... whereon he threw down the Bull of excommunication from the Bishop of Rome (then Pope).  However, the Bishop of Rome had died and the Bull of excommunication was invalid as a result thereof. 


    However, the Orthodox ( Catholic ) Bishops excommunicated the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church due to its renovation and invention of teachings that were never a part of the root, ground and base of all things Christian.  Thus Protestantism numerous cults and sects are the daughters of the Roman Jurisdiction... further schisms...  These facts are proof and evidence that what is termed and called the ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH is not the root of all that is Catholic neither in spirit nor in truth!  Orthodoxy was never, ever subject to the Bishop of Rome whatsoever and is not now!


    Further, I told her, the very word "Religion" comes from the Latin root word Religare which means (definition): "To unite with God".  Therefore what we say, what we do, even what we think is uniting with God on a daily basis and there is no escaping that fact! 



    Material or Spiritual wealth?


         For myself I don't want worldly wealth or glory or riches.  Neither for you or me do we need those things because I know that from them come other troublesome things.  If you have, by the Grace of God, Love and holy desire, then there, beyond the grave, will our future be. 


        And, doing God's Will, you will have much gain here in this life as well as beyond the grave where eternal blessedness unto ages of ages will be.  And beyond, we'll rejoice, where there are neither tears, nor sorrow, nor sighing, but life everlasting...  Amen!

Special Instructions from 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)!

"Do not be afraid! I know that you are seeking Jesus the crucified.
He is not here, for he has been raised just as he said."
Matthew 28:5-6



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.
