The Holy Spirit of Truth, Who proceedeth from the Father.

Welcome to
"The Saint Andrew of Valaam Association"
 
Eastern-Orthodoxy research site! 
 
This is my personal "blog" regarding
the (Russian) Orthodox Church.
 
[Especially about the Russian Orthodox Church  Outside of Russia, here in America.].
 

     
  This weblog is my online journal.
  
   You'll find my opinions on a variety of topics
  
    as well as links to other things on the web 
 
     which I find interesting.
 
     When the Spirit moves me, I may also include
 
    longer essays.
 
    This new blog is a part of
 
   The Saint Andrew of Valaam Association   
 
   research ministry on Russian Orthodoxy. 
 
    In coming into the Eastern Orthodox Church,
 
    we are  [I am] learning from the Church
 
    to receive the True Life, to see the True Light, 
 
    to believe (find) the True Faith. 
      
     This site is begun (by me)
 
     in the year of our LORD GOD and Saviour,
 
     JESUS CHRIST, 2006 A.D.
 


I'll make changes to this site on a regular basis, sharing news, views, experiences, photos...whatever occurs to me. Check back often!

"One of the two who heard John speak and followed Jesus was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.  He first found his own brother Simon and said to him, "We have found the Messiah" (which means Christ)."  St. John 1:40-41 ESV
 
"But when the Comforter comes, Whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of Truth, Who proceedeth from the Father, He will bear witness about Me.  And you also will bear witness, because you have been with Me from the beginning."  St. John 15:26-27 EOV
 
HOLY GOD, HOLY MIGHTY, HOLY IMMORTAL, have mercy on us!
O Heavenly King, Comforter, True Spirit, Who art everywhere, and fillest all things; Treasury of good things, and Giver of Life; come and dwell within us, and cleanse us from every impurity; and save our souls, O Good One!
AMEN.
OUR FATHER, Who art in Heaven: Hallowed be Thy Name!  Thy Kingdom come; Thy Will be done in Earth as it is in Heaven!  Give us this day our daily bread.  And forgive us our tresspasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.  For Thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory, of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit: Now and ever, and unto the Ages of ages; Amen.
 
LORD JESUS CHRIST, SON of GOD, have mercy on us; AMEN !
