Conscious of Beauty

I found a new blog today. Some interesting themes come up in its last few months of posting, and a couple moments of breath-taking beauty.

Here they are:

Orthodoxy is alive and well in Romania
"... [T]hese people are fleeing the world and living an austere life of solitude and prayer; just like in Egypt of the 400s or Russia of the 1700s."


Orthodoxy is alive and well in Missouri
"This is an amazing story of one's heritage coming full circle. Father Moses Barry, a priest of the Eastern Orthodox Church, owns a plot of land that was part of a plantation. Moses Barry's ancestors worked on that plantation as slaves. The structure on the property houses his chapel and a small slave museum. Also on his land is the paupers' cemetery in which his ancestors are buried..."


Thanks for this, Justin.

When I listen that monk and the Missouri priest, my own excuses for lack of devotion seem pretty lame.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy upon me, a sinner.
