ABORTION: THE ORTHODOX VIEW

Again we pray for the children of God condemned to death by the unjust judgement of men: that the Lord our God would soften the hearts of those who seek their violent destruction, and rescue those who are being led forth to the slaughter, we diligently pray Thee, O Lord, hearken and have mercy!

Lord, have mercy. Lord, have mercy. Lord, have mercy.

Life is a precious gift of God. It is given to us so that we, while completing our earthly course, should acquire Divine Grace, should become members «of the household of God» and spiritual «fellow citizens with the Saints» (Ephesians 2:19). It is for this reason also that the Lord has established His Holy Church. In the life of the Church, of this Kingdom of God on earth, we are already destined for blessedness, and partake of it in proportion to our piety.

But the fall of our forefathers introduced sin deeply into our life. Sin has poisoned it, has become a property of this world: that is why the Apostle John can say that «the whole world lieth in wickedness» (1 John 5:19). This evil surrounds us and lures us with particular force when the opposition to it on the part of the society around us weakens. Διαβάστε τη συνέχεια του άρθρου »

NEW YORK–The Cyprus Action Network of America (CANA) is pleased that the fervor for justice is growing stronger with each passing year, as much as the Greek and Cypriot establishment and lobby groups with their political ineptitude and personal agendas would like to bury this issue of memorialising 20th of July with muddled messages and talks (to the tune of bouzoukia and baglamades) on so-called «solutions» that involve so-called «federations» with the very criminals who perpetrated a HOLOCAUST on Greek-Cypriots,we say NEVER AGAIN. We will not be silent , and we are not going away.

For Immediate Release: July 21, 2009

Contact: Nikolaos Taneris, New York, Tel. (917) 699-9935.

The following is a report on yesterday ‘ s 18 hour vigil and demonstration in Washington, DC to mourn the Missing Cypriots and mark the 35th anniversary of the Turkish-military invasion and continuing occupation of Cyprus. The report speaks volumes for how much the Turks fear the simple message of freedom for Cyprus and the potential strength of our victimized people. This is the third year in a row that we have come to DC armed only with cardboard signs, a few Hellenic National flags and a passionate fervor to commemorate the injustice befallen the People of the Republic of Cyprus. It drove the entire Turkish lobby (the apparatus of the Turkish State’s barbarism) into a frenzy of reactionary activity and fury.. Διαβάστε τη συνέχεια του άρθρου »

Letters to the Editor

The Washington Times

Washington, DC 20002

To the Editor:

Ivica Bocevski neglected to clarify the legacy of the so-called name dispute, as reported in The Washington Times recently («No names, please,» Embassy Row, World, June 12). The country Mr. Bocevski hails from is a state that was part of the former Yugoslavia, an artificial political construct that waged war on Greece during the immediate aftermath of World War II.
