1. Wounded by Love: by Elder (now Saint) Porphyrios
(as good of a guide as to how to truly LIVE Orthodoxy as I've ever ever seen; a soft-path first, approach)
2. The Sacrament of Love: by Paul Evdokimov
(easily, the headiest book I've ever read on any subject or genre period. One-of-a-kind erudite. Turn off all devices, keep Google or your favorite search engine or dictionary handy..................epic word smything, the best I've ever seen --an amazing case-study in why marriage is...

Heaven Help the Single Christian: Your (Practical) Guide to Navigating Church as You Search for a Godly Mate (2011), by Thomas RuthfordI bought it last week and it is pretty dang good.Easy to read, and not too long.It is edifying, idea-generating, it even has a (quirky) sense of humor.(like the: "You remind me of St.Mary of Egypt" line --which it says not to use; as arid humor goes)

Worth reading.All the more so for only $2.49 from... Read full post

What thing(s) do you find that most increase your Orthodox spiritual life?

August 3, 2015 by bige3rd   Comments (4)

Not with any showmanship or publication put on display.

Just what helps edify you the most as a practicing O'dox Christian???(this could be anything, I just need (new) some ideas on how to grow or take Orthodoxy a bit more to heart...)

more prayer?
more fasting?
more alms giving?
more O'dox books/vids?
maybe less of something?
monastic campus pilgrimages?
other???

In short, what really helps FOCUS you as an Orthodox Christian?TIA!
