what is the orthodox church's standpoint on abortion and furthermore the use of aborted fetal tissue for transplants and research? does the church support this? if so, why not and is there anything in the bible or in any writings that says this?

Christos Anesti father Peter! Mary Costas introduced us to your website. Very impressive. Funny with all the computer heads here at St. Nicholas that we don't have a website of our own. Mary told us of new icons you are installing at your church. Will you be putting images on the web? Won't keep you too long, but we did want to say Hello and also wish Constantine good wishes for we found out that he is going to pursue becoming a priest. We saw your Mother-in-law, Mary, during Holy week here at St. Nicholas and it was great seeing her and she told us that you all are well. Thank God. Give our love to Nikki and your family.
Thousand Oaks, CA USA - Friday, May 02, 2003
Christ is risen! I found the website when ordering a book through St Vlad's -- when I came to the beautiful photograph of the sanctuary tears came to my eyes and a joy to my heart. Though we are happy in California, blessed with a wonderful parish at St Demetrios in Camarillo, CA, it was at St Alexander's that my family and I truly began to discover what it means to invite our Lord into our home as its Master. With glory to God for His patience and love -- what miracles he brings to all our lives if only we let him. To see the names of those we love involved in the life of St Alexander reinforces the many blessings that God has allowed us in our lifetime. Our prayers for health for all. Being able to send this message means so much. Though we may not be in direct contact as often as we should, please know that you are all remembered daily in our prayers. God bless the ministry and good works of all. Gregory.

My nephew in West Virginia just informed me that I can now see the Services on the Internet. Is this so? Also, I enjoyed reading all the questions & statements above, however, I do not know where the answers to them are. There's no Greek Orthodox Church here in Bend, Or. & I sure miss receiving Communion. I am a heart patient & i was just diagnosed with Cancer. May God Bless you for having our church services on the internet. Respectfully yours, Helen E.Pallis Schick

I like reading about the different programs different Churches have set up and came upon your site. I see the iconography is very beautiful and coming along nicely. God Bless and continue the wonderful work. I just have one question, I read the entry regarding Lastdayapostle@hotmail.com and since it was posted on the guestbook that it must have some merit; is this possible? By all means I do believe in out of the ordinary things occuring and somehow being touched and connected to Jesus maybe this is just too much for me to take in right now. I will visit the site though. Thanks, Hronia Pola, Yvonne

I would also like to echo my sister, Andrea and my brother, Anthony graditude all those who gave my cousin Alex Fotis support, love and faith during her time of terrible sorrow. I am the older sister, so I remember going to church at Holy Cross, when services where held outdoors! I am thrilled to know the Church my parents, Ann and Peter Chase help to create has come so far, and such a comfort to so many. What a wonderful and varibrant parish it is! I am sure my parents would be extremely proud and pleased. With love and prayers Theodora

My husband and I are not Greek.We went to a Greek festival in Seattle aat St Demetrios Orthodox Church. We went to see the church and listened to the talk given. My husband and I were very impressed by the friendly people. They talked to us and were very kind even though we were not Greek. My husband and I were raised Catholic. We are very interested in learning more about the Orthodox Church. We live in Washington now but will move to California this summer. Are there any study materials over the internet to get us started or books we can purchase. Thank you for your help. God Bless All Michele and Robert Morrisey
GREAT BARRINGTON, MA US - Wednesday, November 13, 2002
I also want to thank all of you who support and comfort my cousin, Alexandra Fotis, at this difficult time of the death of her father. Anthony and I were so moved and comforted by the ritual and tradition of the services we attended. I have not attended services since the death of my own parents and I found them to be comforting, familar and a spiritual balm at a difficult time. Anthony and I were remembering our own loss of our mother at exactly this time of year four years ago. Thank you Father Peter for reminding me of the importance of my heritage and faith.
Hancock, MA. - Tuesday, November 12, 2002
I wanted to say thank you and God bless all of you for making my cousin Alex Fotis feel comforted during this time of grief. The service on Sunday was the most inspired and beatiful I've ever attended. My hope is to stay connected with you in some way. Thank you, Anthony

Belmont, CA USA - Friday, August 23, 2002
One must go to an Orthodox Priest for the sacrament of Holy Confession. It is not proper or permissible to confess to a Roman Catholic priest or receive HOly Communion in the Roman Catholic Church, especially when a Greek Orthodox Church is close by. The Sacrament of Holy Confession in the Greek Orthodox Church is for Eastern Orthodox Christians. There are two Greek Orthodox Church in San Jose, call and visit one of them.
Belmont, CA USA - Friday, August 23, 2002
All you need to do is call your priest and schedule a confession. The Sacrament of Holy Confession is not limited to only a few weeks in Great Lent or before a major feast day. Holy Communion should not be received if we have not made the proper preparations, i.e. prayer, fasting, and confession.

San Jose, CA USA - Thursday, August 22, 2002
Is it a sin to receive Communion without having gone to Confession?
San Jose, CA USA - Thursday, August 22, 2002
How would I be able to go to Confession? Is it given only during Lent and before major feast days? Or would I talk with my Priest and schedule a time with him? Also, if I were to go to Confession at a Catholic church, would that be accepted by our own church?
livermore, ca usa - Thursday, August 15, 2002
Just discovered your website. It's great!

Dear Maria, Making time for the Sacrament of Confession is a responsibility of every Orthodox Christian. Yes, we can confess our sins to God but He has instructed us and provided a means by which we ask for His forgivenes. Confessing our sins in the presence of a priest is a tradition that dates back to the time of Christ and His disciples. Jesus tells us in the Gospels of Saints Matthew and John that the authority to forgive sins is granted to them. In the early church people would stand to confess their sins to God in the presence of the congregation. As the Church grew in numbers this became impractical and so the priests began to witness confessions on behalf of the Church community. In confession, we stand before the Icon of Christ in the presence of the priest, confessing our sins and failures. The priest is present to offer spiritual counsel and pray the prayer of forgiveness, asking for the forgiveness of sins both voluntary and involuntary. Once cleansed of our sins we rededicate our life to serve Him with greater love and humility and obedience. Through confession we seek greater spiritual growth and closeness with our Lord.

I am almost 16 years old I meant. Please respond in this guestbook seeing to as I put my mother's email address.
San Jose, Ca USA - Monday, August 12, 2002
I am almost years old and a Greek Orthodox christian. I have never been to Confession, but have received Holy Communion many times. I am not to say I am sinless, and truthfully, there is no excuse for me not going to Confession ever. Last night, I had a dream about Confession. I'm a little scared. Is it really necessary to confess our sins to a priest? Or can we confess to God on our own through prayer? Thank you.

Edmonton, AB Canada - Saturday, July 06, 2002
I have to respond to the poster below who argues that Orthodoxy must change to accommodate the changes in a globalizing world. I would suggest that the Orthodox Faith retains its very "Orthodoxy" by maintaining the absolute truths of the Christian religion once revealed to the saints. As these truths are not relativities dependant upon the whim of society, altering the Orthodox Church one iota to accommodate changes in what the world thinks would be tantamount to abandoning the idea of absolute truth in Orthodoxy. We cannot say that Orthodoxy is the divinely-guided church of Christ if we seek to conform it to the relative realities of culture and society - for Christ is not of this world, and we know that the world is the domain of the fallen angels. Subordinating Orthodoxy to the fallen natures of men and demons by making it an appendage of pop-culture would, inherently, sap Orthodoxy of vitality and durability. This is exactly what has happened in many modernist jurisdictions.

Athens, Greece - Tuesday, June 18, 2002
Orthodoxy needs the modern and typically "western" virtues of flexibility; the ability to cope with change as a law of our modern culture; objectivity, openness, fairness, self-criticism; and a sense of the unity of modern global culture in which no one is or can remain an island. If Orthodoxy is to survive as a viable lifestyle attractive to modern men and women, it will not be as an obscurantist, anti-intellectual culture of folklore and ritualism, sustained by the rejection of modernity and change.

Carrollton, GA USA - Saturday, June 08, 2002
Eight months ago I relocated from NYC to Georgia, in the town on Carrollton, I've been searching for a Greek Church to go to since then, and about last week I hooked up my internet service with my phone provider, and started a search on the internet. I found 9 different Greek orthodox churches, ranging from atlanta to Gwinett county, but none in Douglassville or Carroll(Carrollton)counties, these other churches are way out of my way to go to, im talking about anything from 1-4 hours one way. My Question is, are there going to be any churches built in Carroll county or Douglassville county , so that I may enter church regularly, all we have out here is Baptist churches. Please get back to me as soon as possible, Thank You. firstname.lastname@example.org- John(Ioannis)Tsirakidis.
New York, NY USA - Friday, June 07, 2002
Hi, My name is Michael, and I was saved and baptized in Jesus name in 1991, just four days before my accident and death, yes I was dead and was taken out of the body as the apostle John was when in captivity on the Isle of Patmos. I too was shown things to come and things that are and have been since the begining of christianity. I stood before the most beautiful and majestic white glowing cloud mass that looked like it had no end, and from in the midts of it Jesus came forth and with his arms open wide. He then spoke with out moving his mouth or lips and I heard him say, come on to me Michael. And at that moment I looked down to see what i was standing on and could not see for the cloud had enveloped me at the feet, and then i saw that i was dressed in, It was a white garment from neck down, then as the lord spoke and said come unto to me i seemed to float over toward him and we were face to face. And I held his hands and he said Michael go back and tell my Children that I want to save them all, but they will not allow me in their lives neither into their hearts. Go back and testify, tell them all what you have seen, and what you have heard. And i will give unto you a book that will bring them all back to remembrance and I shall also give unto you a sign in the heavens above the earth and this will let them know that I have sent you and that I am with you and that the words you speak are not of your own but mine. And great and mighty things shall come to pass on the earth in the days of the begining of the end, and people he has done just that, everything he said has come to pass and now has he made these things availible for the world to see. Please go to lastdayapostle.com and see for your selves what Jesus has done and has given us. He has allowed the Holy Ghost to be captured on film, yes that true I filmed a 33 minute visitation by the Holy Ghost over the stJohns river, In the state of Florida. The Holy Ghost has made his day view upon planet earth, and has brought forth the most awesome visual message that will lead all to complete salvation. The Holy Ghost is in the shape of a giant sickle, A Sickle is the tool used in the days of old by the farmers of wheat, to harvest their crops. And on the video, it clearly depicts what Isaiah saw in his day and recorded in Isaiah 53:1, Who has beleived our report, and to whom has the arm of God been revealed. Yes indeed the arm of God the right arm of God is clearly seen on the footage, and thats not all. Also seen clear as the day is long, is the Glory of our Lord Jesus Christ that came forth in the eastern morning sky that beautiful morning. And thats not all, the sun was way late in coming forth that morning about 35 to 40 minutes late. And also a light appears at the botom of the elbow of the right arm of God Almighty, and strings of light begin to pour out of the light. And then the light at the bottom of the elbow begins to grow dim and then at the top of the arm at the elbow a light begins to shine bright and pure white. And as it did at the bottom of the elbow, so it also did at the top, strings of light begin to pour out of the light and these strings of light draw a giant white dove. Thus giving the world a visual message of the plan of salvation which Peter gave oraly on pentecost, please go to the site there are pictures from the footage now availible on the site, click on the event photos and see what Jesus Has brought forth, its the begining of the fulfilment of Revelations 14:14 to 16, Acts 2:38, Joel 2:28 Isaiah 53:1, a must see, and if you would like this footage for your own use to gain the lost and deceived please email me att Lastdayapostle@hotmail.com and I will with out a single thought give you the access pass word that unlocks the actual footage area of the Lords site, thanks for your time and labors of such awesome love for our King Jesus Christ, bye.

Rev Father: I am delighted to find such a wondeful website displaying a wealth of information not only about The Church of Holy Cross Cross, but most anf foremost about our faith! Reading other guests' messages, it's evident that one of the accomplishements of this site is that it brings people from everywhere together, not a small feat in my humble opinion. Your website is an example for other parishes to follow. May God bless you and keep you health and safe to continue His good works!

Really nice seeing old friends at the Festival...I miss the preparation before the Festival, and hopefully next year we'll be able to assist. Peter looked forward to making loukomadis...again, the best ever. Working in the Agora and Sweet Booth was fun. Church, food, friends, sunshine, hard work what else is there in life? Me Agape...Pari

Kota Batam-Indonesia, Jul 07,2001 Dear brethren in Christ Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. My name is Pastor Markus Hutagalung, STh . I am Indonesian. I am a minister of Christ into independent (Inter-denomination). Our Ministries name : EBEN-HAEZER MINISTRY. Address : Comp. Mekar Sari Bloc. C 8, Tiban – Sekupang, Kota Batam 29423,INDONESIA. As you know, we are service of God and our mission is order from Jesus Christ and He said : " For I was and hungered, and we you gave me meat :I was thirsty, and you gave me drink: I was a stranger, and you took me in : Naked, and you clothed me : I was sick, and you visited me : I was prison, and you came unto me. " (Matthew 25 : 35-36). It's mean we service people nearly forget as : 1. Patient in hospital and at home . (Every day) 2. Prisoners in the jail . (Wednesday) 3. Unemployment and employment (Friday & Saturday) 4. God news to another people (Every day) As a minister who serves into independent without any wages like a full-timer minister in the church, of course, I always face the daily need of life. We need very important the money this time : To do servicing as mention above we need fund (cost) to operational. The allocation/ specific needs : 1. Rent house (office) : US$ 60,00./month 2. Transportation : US$ 75,00./month 3. Daily cost : US$ 150,00./month 4. Equipment : US$ 45,00./month TOTAL : US$ 330,00./month We have planning for effective our ministry, so we ask you send us Cost for one year (Jun 2001 – Jun 2002). After we discuss about this fund would be better it one year ( US$ 330,00. X 12 = US$ 3960,00.). The reason why we ask it , because we still waiting donation from our country, so our ministry can continue operational as well as waiting other donation from our country. We are very glad it our planning be success as we wishing. Our account details : BANK NEGARA INDONESIA (BNI), Batam Branch, INDONESIA. Account Number : 245.000743111.901 Account holder : MARKUS HUTAGALUNG, STH To make more effective send the money, please send/transfer to our account ."But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him ?"( I John 3 : 17) We look forward to your kind attention and minister to us ( my family and I ) and thank you very much.

Today I was able to finally link up to your services. Being a Greek & raised in the Greek Orthodox faith, it has been very difficult for me at the age of 69 and handicapped to get to church since there are none close enough for me to get to. Today was one of my greatest days to hear the services and hear the choir (as I used to sing in the choir at Sts. Constantine & Helen in Washington DC years ago). It is a true blessing that you are enabling all of us to link on and feel like we are there with you. Thank you. + Koralia

Hi Father Peter and Presbyteria Nicki. Michael just showed me your website. It's wonderful! I am looking forward to the live liturgy on Sunday ! Maybe I can finally understand and participate in the liturgy. I hope you are all well. My oldest son Michael was accepted to "Holy Cross" here in New York (honors program and a partial scholarship). Hope to make a visit out there soon. Our Love to All, Margy.
Chico, CA - Sunday, March 04, 2001
WOW! The "Se Emnumen" hymn sung with the Youth Choir was outstanding. We have been attending various churches in our area, but none come close to the glorious hymns and chants, in Greek/English as the Greek Orthodox Church Services. There is a need for a Greek Orthodox Church in this University town, and we thank God for your ministry via the Internet. GOHOLYCROSSCHOIR!
New York, NY USA - Tuesday, February 27, 2001
Dear Fr. Peter and Fr. Christopher, I wish you all a blessed Lenten season. It never ceases to amaze me how God works in mysterious ways. I remember how we began this online ministry back in February or so of 1998 and we set a vision for this live broadcast to be used for those who were unable to attend the divine services either due to illness, travel, etc. Well, I want you both to know that Clio and I have been sick since Thursday and we were both unable to attend Liturgy on Sunday. I can't tell you what a joy and inspiration it was to log in and participate in the Divine Liturgy as much as we could from home. God bless you both and please continue your tremendous ministry on the Internet. Regards to everyone out in Belmont; we hope to see you all soon. Have a blessed Lent! In Christ, Theo and Clio Nicolakis
