Vie de Sainte Marie l’Égyptienne (+565)

Par Saint Sophrone, Patriarche de Jérusalem

La vie de sainte Marie l’Égyptienne est un des plus remarquables exemples de conversion et de pénitence de toute l’histoire chrétienne. La mémoire de cette sainte est célébrée solennellement le cinquième dimanche du Grand Carême, ainsi que le 1er avril. Sa vie, écrite par saint Sophrone de Jérusalem (550-638), est lue pendant l’office du Grand Canon de saint André de Crête, le jeudi de la quatrième semaine du grand Carême, et un tropaire en son honneur y est chanté à la fin de chaque ode du Grand Canon.

La mémoire de saint Sophrone, patriarche de Jérusalem et grand défenseur de la foi orthodoxe contre les hérésies du VIIe siècle, est célébrée le 10 mars et celle de saint Zosime le 4 avril.

LES MIRACLES DE DIEU

Sceller le secret du roi est bien, révéler les faits de l’action divine est louable. Telles furent les paroles de l’Ange à Tobie après le miracle de la guérison de sa cécité et après tous les dangers qu’il traversa et dont il se libéra par sa piété.

Ne pas garder les secrets du roi est chose dangereuse et effrayante ; taire les miracles de Dieu est dangereux pour l’âme. C’est pourquoi, mû par la crainte de taire ce qui est divin, et me remémorant le châtiment promis à l’esclave qui, ayant reçu de son maître un talent, l’a enfoui dans la terre et a, sans aucun profit, caché ce qui lui avait été donné pour le faire fructifier, – je ne tairai pas le saint récit parvenu jusqu’à nous. Que nul n’hésite à me croire, moi qui ai écrit ce que j’ai entendu ; que nul ne pense que j’invente des fables, subjugué par la grandeur des miracles. Que Dieu me préserve de mentir et de falsifier un récit dans lequel est cité son saint Nom. Il n’est pas raisonnable, à mon sens, de nourrir des pensées peu élevées, indignes de la grandeur du Verbe fait homme et de Continue reading “Vie de Sainte Marie l’Égyptienne (+565) – Par Saint Sophrone, Patriarche de Jérusalem – French”

Western Kasai, Congo: Nina & her mother – From Protestantism to Orthodoxy – A miracle of Holy Virgin Mary, Mother of God

HOLY VIRGIN MARY, MOTHER OF GOD

Western Kasai, Congo:

Nina & her mother – From Protestantism to Orthodoxy –

A miracle of Holy Virgin Mary, Mother of God

Nina, a 10-year-old girl, was the third child of a family which lived in Western Kasai (Congo). Her two previous siblings, two boys, died early, making Nina an only child.

Nina was born from a mother with strong religious interests, to such an extent that she had embraced a Protestant heresy and become a “Pastoress” (woman priest).

Nina followed her mother to Protestant gathering. However, the good reputation of the Orthodox Missionary School brought the little girl to the Orthodox school. From then on she underwent a series of internal and external changes.

As time passed, Nina began to become reluctant and unwilling to follow her mother to the Protestant gatherings. She perfectly followed—even though she wasn’t baptized—the Orthodox church gatherings. Not much time passed before the girl sought to be baptized [Orthodox]!

Her parents, and much more so her grandmother, didn’t want to hear of this. This increased Nina’s desire to receive Holy Baptism.

Her father ultimately accepted his daughter’s request, and came to the following decision: “my first two children died, one at age two and the other at age one. My little girl has turned ten. Let her be baptized, as she wants so much, because maybe she might die too!” The rest of the family complied and received his decision with sadness.

Nina thanked her heavenly and earthly father with all her heart. She went through catechism for a short time, and was found ready for baptism. She of course continues to go to her religious studies constantly, and she never missed the Divine Liturgy and Holy Communion on Sundays and Feasts.

Nina’s soul felt a deep and mystical connection with the All-Holy Person of the Most-Holy Theotokos Mary, and she went around her house and placed Her holy icon on the highest cabinet of the dining room, causing several negative reactions by the rest of the family. She withstood, however, and managed to have the holy icon of the Theotokos stay where she placed it.

On Sundays, the “Pastoress” mother of Nina received many Protestants in her house. As soon as the Protestants saw the icon of the Theotokos, they protested, and sought the Continue reading “Western Kasai, Congo: Nina & her mother – From Protestantism to Orthodoxy – A miracle of Holy Virgin Mary, Mother of God”

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”».
