A former parish of the “Philippine Independent Catholic Church” (also known as Aglipayan Church) now embracing Orthodoxy. This is the third parish of the Moscow Patriarchate in the Philippines. Another dozens of Aglipayan parishes is set to be receive and baptize in the next few months. Many years to the newly baptized Filipino Orthodox Christians!

Help us develop an Orthodox prayer book in Tagalog

PHILIPPINE MISSION

In 2014, through the gracious help of the Mission Society of St Serapion Kolozhersky, the Orthodox prayer book was printed in the Cebuano language of the southern Philippines. Now an increasing number of Orthodox Filipinos are finding this resource to be of great value in their morning and evening prayers, preparation for Communion, and daily life together. Glory to God!

However in parts of Mindanao, as well as in the northern island of Luzon and in the capital region, many Orthodox Filipinos speak Tagalog, also known as Filipino, one of the national languages of the Philippines. The languages are related, but not mutually understandable.  We are now seeing growth in Tagalog-speaking Orthodox mission communities, so we want to provide the same resources in their language.

So, with fear and trembling, we are beginning the process of translating the Orthodox prayer book into Tagalog. Some find it helpful to refer to the Cebuano version to see how the thoughts have been transferred into a more familiar order, so we are working in three columns: English, Cebuano, and Tagalog. You can follow the progress of the project or contribute to it, at this Facebook group: facebook.com/groups/TagalogOrthodoxPrayerbook. Pages will also be linked here on the Web, for those who do not use Facebook.

If you are a native speaker of the Tagalog language, and you would like to be involved, it’s easy! Just open one of these files, choose any prayer and put it into Tagalog, and send your work to silouan@gmail.com or facebook.com/silouanthompson. As the text grows, it will be reviewed and edited by clergy, and then the Orthodox faithful will start putting it into action.

Whether you can contribute or not, please pray for this project. It’s an exciting opportunity to help the Church grow in the Philippines!

Condensed biography of Saint John Maximovitch (1896-1966)

Saint John was born on 4 June 1896 in the village Adamovka in the province of Kharkov in Southern Russia. He was a descendent of the aristocratic family Maximovitch, a member of which was pronounced a saint in 1916, the hierarch John Maximovitch, Metropolitan of Tobolsk, whose incorrupt relics are in Tobolsk to this day. This holy hierarch reposed at the beginning of the 18th century but he carried the torch of his grace to his distant nephew, Michael (the baptismal name of Saint John, who later received the name of his uncle when he was tonsured a monk). His father Boris was a marshal of the nobility in a region of Kharkov and his uncle was rector at the University of Kiev. His relationship with his parents was always excellent. Throughout his youth, Michael was sickly and ate very little. He was a quiet kid, very polite and deeply religious. When he played he would dress his play soldiers as monks, collect icons and religious books and enjoyed reading about the lives of the Saints. At night he would stand praying for long periods. Because he was the eldest of five siblings, it was he who knew the lives of the Saints very well and became their first teacher of the Faith. He was very austere with himself in the application of ecclesiastic and national traditions. So Continue reading “Condensed biography of Saint John Maximovitch (1896-1966) – July 2”

ORTHODOX CHRISTIANITY

“Sanctity is not just a virtue. It is an attainment of such spiritual heights, that the abundance of God’s grace which fills the saint overflows on all who associate with him. Great is the saint’s state of bliss in which they dwell contemplating the Glory of God. Being filled with love for God and man, they are responsive to man’s needs, interceding before God and helping those who turn to them.”
Thus describing the ancient Saints, Vladyka John simultaneously summarized his own spiritual attitude which made him one of the greatest Saints of our time.

Childhood in Russia

Michael Maximovitch, the future Archbishop John, was born on June 4, 1896, in the village of Adamovka in the province of Kharkov in southern Russia. He was a member of the Little Russian noble family of Maximovitch, to which St. John of Tobolsk also had belonged. He received at baptism the name of Michael, his heavenly protector being the Archangel Michael. He was a sickly child and ate little.

He received his secondary education in the Poltava Military School, which he attended from 1907 to 1914. Upon completing military school he entered Kharkov Imperial University in the faculty of law, from which he graduated in 1918, before it was seized by the Soviets.

Kharkov, where Vladyka spent his formative years, was a true town of Holy Russia, and Continue reading “Saint John Maximovitch of Shanghai & San Francisco (+1966) – The Saint of Russia, Serbia, China, Philippines, Belgium, France, Spain, the Netherlands & USA – July 2”
