AND NOW FOR SOMETHING LONG OVERDUE ...

What does it mean to be an Orthodox Christian in Canada? For some, it means church life in parishes that mimic as closely as possible life in another culture, long ago or far away. For others, the idea of brining Christ's Church to Canadians is taken on as a personal mission, allowing the inheritance of the Faith once delivered to the saints to be watered down to make it fit with heterodox expectations of "church". In either case, the whole point of Orthodox mission work is lost.

This month, we begin a new feature entitled "Orthodox Canada". This humble project is dedicated to sharing traditional Orthodox life in a specifically Canadian context. In each issue of this quarterly journal, we hope to contribute to the vision of Orthodox Christianity as the authentic path to Christ for Canadians, whatever their origin. It is our belief that the careful navigation of this path, in keeping with the teaching of the Church Fathers, needs to be fully explored and shared broadly. It is our prayer that this effort will be worthy of the blessing of the Lord, and that in time, through the prayers of our Canadian Bishop, His Grace Bishop SERAPHIM, this effort will in some small way contribute to the spiritual health and salvation of Canadians.

This first issue of 'Orthodox Canada', in PDF format, can be downloaded from the new site www.orthodoxcanada.com under the rubric 'Download Journal'.
