The sound of Divine Steps in Ivory Coast, Africa

Mass Baptism

Africa … «Faith possible, many wonders . ” We arrived ,” recounts Bishop Panteleimon of Ghana , “after 18 hours journey in the Ivory Coast and said : Now what? … And, when disappointed and we decided to return to Ghana , the phone rings . It was a group of people who for six years was looking the roots of Christianity upon research discoveries to Orthodoxy … their intentions are pure … I decided to baptize them… We went to see the lagoon , where the next day would be a baptism. Full trash (up to 2,5 m from the coast). That will take the oil ? Where are It will be the mystery ? Would like months to clean it up … In the evening windstorm broke… the next morning there was not a debris… after… Blessed with captured heartbreaking pain. I had to go to hospital… I kept… were the first Orthodox Christians”».

COMING HOME – ORTHODOXY

Fr. Athanasius Henein, Egypt:

A Copt-Monophysite Priest’s Conversion to Orthodoxy

in Athens, Greece on 2011

FATHER ATHANASIOS HENEIN

Below is a translation I have done introducing the works and person of Fr. Athanasios Henein, a convert from Monophysitism. Although he spent many years in “captivity”, as he himself says, he responded to Christ when He called to him to enter into Life, Orthodoxy; he diligently sought Christ and found Him. For my part I was so impressed by his words that I had to share such a wonderful, if small, taste of his conversion story. I would translate more if I could find the whole account. Enjoy!

An Introduction to the Works and Person of Fr. Athanasios Henein:

Given such a miraculous event, instead of writing a preface ourselves, it is better for Fr. Athanasios to speak for himself, in his own words, about his blessed conversion into Life, the Truth – which exists only in the One Catholic and Apostolic Church, our Orthodox Church.

We praise God for his wonderful work and wish Fr Athanasios, through the intercessions of the Theotokos and of all the saints, the blessing and mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ and His support for him and his family. We also thank him for his confidence and the texts he sends us. Eventually we will post both the Greek and Arabic versions to benefit souls and glorify the Lord.

Fr. Athanasios in his own words:

Many speak of heresy, many write about the condition, but few are those who have tasted the bitterness of heresy, and fewer still those who have lived and shed blood to free themselves from its captivity.

Heresy is a way of life, it is a great prison, it is a mental, as well as physical, illness. I, Athanasios Henein, lived these tragic events as the head of the Coptic community in Athens for fifteen years. Copts divide the person of Christ and abolish His inter-human reality and His realistic presence in the world and in the Church.

But the miracle of my healing and conversion to our Mother, the Orthodox Church, was by the grace of the Triune God and the practical love of His Eminence Metropolitan Seraphim of Piraeus, the Cretan Elder Methodius, and the fathers of the Holy Monastery of the Resurrection.

The words you will read, dear readers, are a confession of faith, and gratitude. But they are also an appeal for us to work together to help ordinary Copts (of which 15 thousand live in Athens) to experience the beauty of Orthodoxy.
