ORTHODOX CHRISTIANITY

With the coming of the Communists, the Russians in China were forced once again to flee, most of them through the Philippine Islands. In 1949 approximately 5,000 refugees from the Chinese mainland were living in an International Refugee Organization camp on the island of Tubabao in the Philippines. This island is located in the path of the seasonal typhoons which sweep through that part of the Pacific. During the 27-month period of the camp’ s occupancy, the island was threatened only once by a typhoon, and it changed course and bypassed the island.

When the fear of typhoons was mentioned by one Russian to the Filipinos, they replied that there was no reason to worry, because “your holy man blesses your camp from four directions every night.” They referred to Vladyka John; for no typhoon struck the island while he was there. After the camp had been almost totally evacuated and the people resettled elsewhere (mainly in the USA and Australia), it was struck by a terrible typhoon that totally destroyed the camp.

Ano ang Simbahang Orthodox?

PHILIPPINE MISSION

Sa kinaramihan ng mga Pilipino, hindi nila alam kung ano ang Simbahang Orthodox, o ang Orthodox Church. Kung may alam man sila ay limitado base sa mga ilang maliliit na detalye na nasama sa usapan. Siguro may kakilala sila na naging Orthodox, o narinig o nabasa lang sa internet, o kaya nabasa sa mga libro ng kasaysayan o sa diyaryo. Pero kahit na alam nila ang salitang “Orthodox”, hindi talaga nila alam kung ano ito. Ganito rin ako noon, hindi ko maalala kung saan ko narinig iyon pero may kaunti akong alam. Ang rason nito ay hindi talaga tayo naabot ng mga misyonaryong Orthodox hangga’t nitong nakaraan na 100 taon. At kahit na may mga Orthodox na pari at obispo o mga dayuhan na Orthodox na nasa Pilipinas upang mag negosyo o tumira, bihira at kakaunti lang ang mga pagkakataon na makilala sila ng publiko.

Simulan natin. Ang Simbahang Orthodox ay ang Simbahan na itinatag ni Kristo sa panahong ng kanyang ministeryo dito sa lupa. Ngayon, maraming ibang simbahan at sekta na nagsasabi na sila ang itinatag na simbahan ni Kristo, pano masasabi ng Orthodox na sila nga ang Simbahan?

Ang Orthodox as may kasaysayan na nagmumula pa nung 33AD. Ito as matapos ng pagkabuhay ni Kristo at umakyat siya sa langit, ipinadala niya ang Espiritu Santo sa kanyang mga disipolo. Itong araw na ito na tinatawag natin na Pentecost, ang araw na naitatag ang Simbahan. Mag mula noon at sa Continue reading “Ano ang Simbahang Orthodox?”

Originally under the canonical spiritual jurisdiction of the Orthodox Metropolitanate of Hong Kong and Southeast Asia. On September 2011, after the suspension of it’s former Rector Fr. Kleopas Dackal, the community was led by him into the Old Calendar schism. The Holy and Sacred Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, during it’s regular monthly session held on Dec. 1, 2012, decided eventually to defrock Fr. Kleopas Daclan, according to decision with Prot. No: 1047/1-12-2012. Orthodox Christians in the Philippines are requested not to have any kind of communication with this schismatic community, until the problem is solved.

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!

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 much did he impress his teacher, who was a French woman and Catholic, that she was influenced by young Michael’s Christian life and was baptized Orthodox.

He had a country house near a monastery where little Michael would visit often. At the age of 11 his parents Boris and Glaphyra sent him to the Military School of Poltava where he continued to live, with his faith deeply rooted. For when kids are absent from their home for long time, their youthful souls are easily influenced. He, however, remained steadfast in his faith. There he also met the Bishop of Poltava, Theophan, a much loved hierarch, who influenced Michael. At a military parade while passing by the cathedral, little Michael (who was 13 then) crossed himself, and his classmates laughed at him and mocked him, and he was punished by his officers for the action. However Prince Continue reading “Condensed biography of Saint John Maximovitch (1896-1966)”

Help us develop an Orthodox prayer book in Tagalog

https://philippine-mission.org/resources/tagalog/prayer-book/

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!
