REMINDER TO LEADERS AND SCHOLARS ON THE ANTIDOTE AND CURE FOR COVID-19 ADVERSITY Indeed, we have previously warned all Leaders and Scholars both Muslims and non-Muslims alike on the antidote and cure for Covid19. We assert that COVID-19 is not a disease nor a test for mankind but in reality is torment from Allah SWT. Thus the only cure is to return to Allah SWT in repentance and set our face to Allah SWT again by obeying Him as well as His Messenger (peace be upon him) as Allah Himself have said in the Holy Quran Chapter Az-Zumar Verse 54: وَأَنِيبُوا إِلَىٰ رَبِّكُمْ وَأَسْلِمُوا لَهُ مِن قَبْلِ أَن يَأْتِيَكُمُ الْعَذَابُ ثُمَّ لَا تُنصَرُونَ “And turn in repentance and in obedience with true Faith to your Lord and submit to Him before the torment comes upon you then you will not be helped” This is the path that Allah SWT has guided us as stated in the above verse on how to escape His torment before it comes or presently upon us. Allah SWT said in Chapter Al-Araf verses 134-135: وَلَمَّا وَقَعَ عَلَيْهِمُ الرِّجْزُ قَالُوا يَا مُوسَى ادْعُ لَنَا رَبَّكَ بِمَا عَهِدَ عِندَكَ ۖ لَئِن كَشَفْتَ عَنَّا الرِّجْزَ لَنُؤْمِنَنَّ لَكَ وَلَنُرْسِلَنَّ مَعَكَ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ “And when the punishment fell on them they said: "O Musa (Moses)! Invoke your Lord for us because of His Promise to you. If you will remove the punishment from us, we indeed shall believe in you, and we shall let the Children of Israel go with you." فَلَمَّا كَشَفْنَا عَنْهُمُ الرِّجْزَ إِلَىٰ أَجَلٍ هُم بَالِغُوهُ إِذَا هُمْ يَنكُثُونَ “But when We removed the punishment from them to a fixed term, which they had to reach, behold! They broke their word!” The above verses mentioned torment had befallen Pharaoh and his people. Once they pledged to believe in Prophet Moses AS and promised to release the Children of Israel, the torment was lifted by Allah SWT. Fast forward to today, our situation is similar to the days of Prophet Moses AS, in which the torment of Allah SWT has befallen us mankind. Clearly, if we wish for Allah SWT to lift the torment that is upon us, there is no other way but for Muslims to repent and return to Allah the Almighty in obedience and in full submission to Him alone and obeying His Laws and Regulations. For non-Muslims, he or she must believe in the last and final Prophet, our Leader Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) by saying the testimony of faith or Shahadah. This is indeed the antidote and cure for COVID-19 that has befallen us mankind, be them Muslims or non-Muslims. Again, we advise the Leaders and Scholars of Islam whom we have previously advised to take the path shown by Allah SWT as mentioned in the above verses so that He will lift His torment that is upon us now, hence all mankind will recover and live peacefully. After this reminder, if the Leaders and Scholars ignore, refuse or fail to do as what Allah SWT has stated in the above two verses, then all of you will be responsible in this world and in the hereafter for this frightful and horrifying perpetual event. In our previous reminder we also stated whosoever owns our book entitled " ALLAH’s RELIGION A BLESSING AND A SAVIOUR FOR THE ENTIRE WORLDS " will also be safe from all dangers and calamities, especially the current COVID19 pandemic that has befallen mankind. Reason being the book contains and explains the essence of the Holy Quran which touches five subjects: 1) Al-Basa-ir that is all the evidence and explanations that will open the human’s heart; 2) Al-Huda that is guidance on how mankind as the Caliph on the earth can establish relationship with Allah SWT the Creator of the Universe, relationship with humans, relationship between humans and other creatures such as jinns, animals, plants and inanimate things; 3) Al-Furqan that is the differentiator between right and wrong; 4) As-Syifa which is the cure for our physical body and our soul; and 5) Ar-Rahmah that is the blessing for the entire worlds because the laws and regulations contained in the Holy Quran are based on love and mercy. O Muslims, do not doubt the truth about Allah’s Words as mentioned in Chapters Az-Zumar and Al-Araf. Do not let our Iman or Faith waver! May Allah SWT forgive all our sins and may He show us the straight and bright path, left by our Prophet (PBUH).

A rare opportunity is extended for all to attend and listen to Constantine Zalalas, a very knowledgeable and contemporary teacher of Orthodox Tradition. For those who may not know, Constantine is a lay theologian of Greek descent who lives in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania USA. He was a spiritual son of the Holy Elder Athanasios Mitilinaios and is well known for translating and narrating hundreds of the Elder’s texts from Greek into English. Constantine has published several books, many of his own lectures can be found all over the internet and is a close friend and supporter of the newly created monasteries of Elder Ephraim in the USA. Come and share in our joy at this edifying gathering based on the Wisdom of the Fathers, so that we may arm ourselves with the spiritual weaponry to stay true and faithful in these very uncertain times. The lecture will be in English and the topic will touch on themes of The Triodion (The Pre-Lenten Period), specifically The Orthodox perspective of Paradise and Hell. Please bring your friends. A question and answer session will follow after the lecture. When: 4.00 pm, Saturday 22nd February 2020 Where: Protection of the Holy Mother of God, Russian Church 3-7 Albion Street, Brunswick East, VIC 3057.
URGENT & FERVENT PRAYERS NEEDED! Today on the first anniversary of the repose of Fr Seraphim Slade, the first Australian Aboriginal Orthodox Priest, the House & Chapel which was home Matushka Helen has just burnt down. Fr Mark, a true friend and brother to Fr Seraphim had just served both the Liturgy and Memorial Service for Fr Seraphim and together with his wife Matushka Xenia, and their children plus Matushka Helen and the Deacon assisting left to go to the cemetary 10 minutes out of town for the service. On the way back they observed smoke and when they arrived and found the building in flames. Please pray for them all! No doubt there will be needs to be met in the time ahead but in the meantime they need the embrace of the Holy Trinity and the Holy Angels as they deal with the shock.
Christ is in our midst

The Eastern Orthodox Church is the original Christian faith, with our theology based on the Nicene Creed. We are One, Holy, Catholic (universal) and Apostolic church established by Jesus Christ, with our bishops successors of Christ's apostles.

Christ is Risen brothers and sisters,

May the blessings of our Risen Lord be with all people both now and into the ages of ages. Tomorrow, we will be posting photos taken throughout Holy Week and over the coming few weeks video footage.

Today, we celebrate the feast day of three martyrs of the Orthodox Church, Saints Nicholas, Raphael and Irene. These saints were martyred ten years after the Fall of Constantinople on Bright Tuesday (9 April 1463).

The reason why we commemorate the saints on this date, is because for centuries the people of Lesbos would travel on Bright Tuesday (meaning Tuesday after Pascha) to the ruins of a monastery near Thermi. The people traveled here on the vague recollection that this was the spot of a former monastery where monks had been martyred.

In 1959, a devout man named Angelos Rallis decided to build a chapel near the ruins of the monastery. It was at this time that workmen discovered the relics of Saint Raphael whilst clearing the ground. Shortly afterwards, the saints started appearing to the various inhabitants of Lesbos, revealing the details of their lives and martyrdom.

Saint Raphael, the deacon to Nicholas (now Saint Nicholas), was tied to a tree and his captors ferociously sewed through his jaw killing him. Saint Nicholas was tortured and died having witnessed his Elder's martyrdom. Saint Irene was a twelve year old daughter of the village mayor, Basil. She was placed in a large earthen cask and a fire was lit under it, suffocating her within (two pictures of which is shown of this very spot).

An interesting detail on why it came to be that Saint Irene was martyred in a men's monastery, is because she and her family had gone there to warn the monks of the invasion.

>>> My Experience.

Immediately prior to traveling to Greece in December last year, I was unexpectedly invited to attend a liturgy interstate at Saints Raphael, Nicholas & Irene Greek Orthodox Church Liverpool, to then visit the site of these martyrs (the namesake of that church) and to venerate their relics was very moving.

The parish priest of Saints Raphael, Nicholas and Irene in Liverpool is Father Peter Anastasiadis (Prochoros). On the date of this liturgy where I visited my friend Fr Prochoros, he was bestowed by His Eminence Archbishop Makarios with the Office of Confession. This is a very good man who labours tirelessly and with love for his parishioners and the local community, including with the launch of a parish initiative to feed the homeless.

Similarly, I had not even been scheduled to be in Lesbos, yet by a turn of events I was led to be here and see the site of martyrs that I had grown up reading about and venerating. Their story is made so compelling in not only how they and many others at this location were martyred, for no other reason than their love of Jesus Christ, but because a child was also made to endure this martyrdom alongside them. Saint Irene is a saint all youth can turn to intercede their prayers to the Lord during times of adversity.

To watch a live-stream of this parish celebrating their feast day, please visit: https://bit.ly/2wTMf0i

Let us pray to these Holy Martyrs that they may intercede our prayers to bless and keep safe all faithful, including parishes in their namesake and for the good clergy like Fr Prohoros that are without any complaint or fear on the front-line helping the people as they get through this pandemic.

Χριστός Ανέστη, Christ is Risen.

Matins of Great and Holy Wednesday

Archbishop Makarios of Australia recently said to the faithful that Holy Week would be a difficult time for all devout Christians, but it should be treated as a test.

"We are currently experiencing a totally different situation, which is a new test we have to face. However, the greatest challenge we have to face is obedience," he said, urging the faithful to "listen to what doctors and specialists tell us on how we can protect, not only ourselves but also the people around us and our society as a whole."

His Eminence also explained that the current test is a challenge to follow a more ascetic way of life, an invitation and a challenge to strengthen our spirituality.

"Even if you are not a churchgoer, even if you want to return to the Church, even if you are in communion, even if you are not in communion, what is important is to attain the most perfect union with Jesus Christ," he concluded.

Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ,

This evening with the blessing of His Eminence Archbishop Makarios of Australia and His Grace Bishop Iakovos of Miletoupolis, we are streaming live from the Greek Orthodox Church of Saint George (Brisbane) the Akathist service for all Orthodox Christian faithful across this city, country and around the world.

We are living in unprecedented times and it is in this moment that we take solace in our faith and keeping strong with prayer.

Whilst faithful are not physically able to be in our Greek Orthodox Christian places of worship, we are all at this moment united in prayer together in spirit, love and solidarity.

Our faith burns bright in our hearts, we have a unity of purpose and the Church never ceases in its constant prayers and mission for the people of God. Allow yourself at this moment to light your oil lamp and incense burner, stand before your icons and pray for the intercessions of the Mother of God.

May we make our homes at this time a sanctuary, a place of beauty in prayer, filled with serenity and a place to rest in solitude.

“It is a trial that we are experiencing, but we Orthodox know very well that after the Crucifixion comes the Resurrection” – Archbishop Makarios.

>>> Background to the Akathist Hymn.

The Akathist service is sung by Orthodox Christian faithful during the five Fridays in Great Lent. However, an Akathist hymn can be sung to the Virgin Mary or individual saints at other times throughout the year. For instance, in the Serbian Orthodox tradition they celebrate with the Akathist to the Virgin Mary service every Friday throughout the year.

The word ‘akathistos’ literally means ‘not sitting’, where nearly all participants stand and pray. It is a hymn comprised of 24 stanzas, alternating between long and short, seeking the Virgin Mary’s protection and intercessions.

It is one of the most beautiful services to warm the very depths of your heart and uplift you with your prayers.

Whilst there is some debate as to the original authorship, it is viewed by scholars to have been composed in Constantinople ‘the city of the Virgin / Queen City’ around the year 556, with formal acceptance by the Church in 626AD.

>>> Why do we have an Akathist to the Virgin Mary?

In Luke 1:48, the Virgin Mary prophesised that “All generations shall call me blessed”. When Jesus came into this world as a divine Person, He took on a complete nature through the Virgin Mary (John 1:1, 14), with the Virgin Mary having given birth and nurtured a divine Person, She is rightly called the “Mother of God.”

We know Jesus Christ is called “God” in the scriptures (John 20:28). Therefore, I say to all after having been told in scriptures and knowing that Jesus Christ is God, to then doubt that the Virgin Mary is the Mother of God is to similarly doubt the divinity of Jesus Christ. For this reason, we venerate the Mother of Our Saviour in the Church.

We also believe reality encompasses both the living and those who have died and are now “with Christ” (Phil. 1:23), for this reason we beseech them to pray for us as we do for them.

The Virgin Mary is esteemed and honoured for having been the one chosen by God to bring forth His Only Begotten Son and as such is the most exalted of all people.

We will be live-streaming the Akathyst Hymn service to the Panayia tonight 6-8pm [service will be in Greek and English] at St George Greek Orthodox Church, Brisbane.

On Sunday morning, we will be live-streaming the Divine Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom [Greek and English].

Brothers and Sisters,

Whilst spending time on Mount Athos, I received the blessing to pray and photograph the sacred Axion Estin icon. I went to this church a number of times throughout my stay on the Holy Mountain.

My first experience in this sacred Church was in darkness with dimly lit candles, whilst we celebrated an all-night vigil (see link to earlier post with video: https://bit.ly/3bNPzZS).

My next visit a few days later was to stand/kneel before this miraculous icon close-up and be able to pray (veneration of the Panayia and Christ-child depicted). Then I had multiple other visits where I spent time in prayer praying for my country back home, including an out of control fire outside the front gate of Pantanassa Monastery (Monastery & Co) on the Central Coast of NSW.

It was an incredible blessing to be able to pray in private before this miraculous icon in this sacred spot, and then to have the time to record a separate clip (public prayer) where I was praying with all of you back home (see link to the recorded public prayer: https://bit.ly/2ywohZB).

We witnessed the miracle of prayer when we as a people begged with humility for reprieve and mercy against the Australian bush-fires, and to spare our two monasteries in NSW. Today, let us once again pray for a miracle to protect the lives of all our faithful both here and around the world!

Whilst we may all be staying safe in our homes, we are in one of the most sacred times of year, this trial we are going through needs us to maintain humanity, love and above all faith.

Let us keep up the faith, SHARE this post with your friends and join us in prayer from your homes.

God bless.

Praying for the monastics of Mount Athos against COVID-19

Exploring Mount Athos and praying for the monastics and all Orthodox Christians.

Brothers and Sisters,

As many have no doubt heard, there have now been a few cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) that has entered the Holy Mountain, Mount Athos.

Whilst Mount Athos has been closed to visiting pilgrims owing to the present pandemic, the monastics are praying fervently for the whole of the world at this present time.

I had recently been on the Holy Mountain at the end of last year until February this year and can attest to the serenity, beauty and splendour of this spiritual garden to the Panayia (Virgin Mary).

As the monastics pray for us who are out in the world, let us pray for the monastics who are in the world but living not of this world. Here is a clip that I recorded to take everyone on a look at the town centre and where I had been explaining this splendid place and how we can focus on greater meaning and purpose to our lives.

With the blessings of our Heavenly Father may this pandemic come to pass, may faithful be spared and we be allowed to go back to our spiritual worship in our churches. As His Eminence Archbishop Makarios recently said, "It is a trial that we are experiencing, but we Orthodox know very well that after the Crucifixion comes the Resurrection."

Apologies for the delay in posting content, my return to Australia has come at a hectic time. I will have lots more to show you over coming weeks of from spiritual shrines consisting of many of our blessed Christian saints.

It is a time as we head into Pascha to combat this test with strength of prayer, grow our faith and to always appreciate what we sometimes take for granted.

God bless.

Evangelising the Truth of Christ online

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,” - Matthew 28:19

The Orthodox Church is the oldest Christian tradition in the world, founded by our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and with its beginnings chronicled in the New Testament.

The Church has deep and lasting roots in Christian antiquity and is steeped in rich Biblical tradition. The ministry of the Orthodox Church is derived from the Apostles by a continuous succession through a series of bishops who to this day serve in ancient sees directly founded by the Apostles of Jesus Christ.

One cannot understand the Orthodox Church by merely reading about it, rather one must experience it directly to realise the fullness of its life.

Let us read about Orthodox Christianity and talk about it here and elsewhere, but most importantly come and experience it together in person. For Jesus Christ says in Matthew 18:20 "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them."

Our efforts are a direct response to the call by Archbishop Makarios of Australia, in his role as shepherd and faithful steward of the Holy Gospel, to share "the light of life eternal, that illuminates... those who are near and those who are far; those who are familiar, and those who are strangers; those who are faithful and those who are not."

The Lord’s Prayer Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

The Creed: The Symbol of Faith for all Orthodox Christians I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the only-begotten, begotten of the Father before all ages. Light of light; true God of true God; begotten, not made; of one essence with the Father, by Whom all things were made. Who for us men and for our salvation came down from Heaven, and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and became human. He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered, and was buried. And on the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures. He ascended into Heaven, and sits at the right hand of the Father. And He shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His Kingdom shall have no end. And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of Life, Who proceeds from the Father; Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; Who spoke by the prophets. In one Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins. I look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.
