WARNING

NOT EVERYTHING THAT

CALLS ITSELF ORTHODOX IS

TRULY ORTHODOX


The above warning was given to me when I first met Orthodoxy in 1986. Today [2009] it is even more perilous, even more difficult to find the Royal Path. For one thing there is a far greater abundance of misinformation. And many materials are missing, and other materials are being rapidly rewritten. For another thing there are fewer than ever guides remaining on the Royal Path, especially who speak English. Hopefully this website will be a place where Newcomers to the Faith can keep at least one foot on solid ground, while they are "exploring."

How to Write the Calendar Date

Fr. Seraphim always dated his letters writing the Church date, slash, and then the civil date.

Examples:

Memorial Day
May 18/31

Independence Day
June 21/July 4

Thanksgiving Day this year
November 14/27, 2014

You might see it done with the civil date coming before the Church date.   This was started by world-Orthodox, and some people in ROCA have picked it up.  (sigh)  It just adds to the confusion.
