Og med til dette hører, at man lytter til et bestemt katalog af sange og hymner, hvor “Dejlig er jorden” også ofte medregnes, om end den vist egentlig ikke er en decideret julesalme.

Jeg tager afstand fra alt muligt

Ok, så gik det helt amok i Frankrig igen. Hold da op… Sikke en katastrofe. Gud forbarme sig! Over de, som har måttet lade livet, og de, som forstenede står tilbage og er frarøvede deres kære, landsmænd og medmennesker.

One cannot love the thing which is not

“Quick,’ she said. ‘There is still time. Stop it. Stop it at once.’ ‘Stop what?’ ‘Using pity, other people’s pity, in the wrong way. We have all done it a bit on earth, you know. Pity was meant to be a spur that drives joy to help misery. But it can be used the wrong […]

Joy that cannot be shaken

“Listen to reason. Did you think joy was created to live always under that threat? Always defenceless against those who would rather be miserable than have their self-will crossed?

Metropolitan John af Pergamon

For nogle år siden oversatte jeg en tekst, som er en gengivelse af et foredrag holdt af Metropolitan John (Zizioulas) af Pergamon. Jeg har besluttet at gøre den danske oversættelse tilgængelig her.

God læselyst!

GOD HAS APPEARED!

БОГ СЕ ЈАВИ! ВАИСТИНУ СЕ ЈАВИ! GOD HAS APPEARED! HE HAS APPEARED INDEED! GUD HAR VIST SIG! HAN HAR SANDELIG VIST SIG!

Theophany of our Lord, Troparion, Tone I — When Thou, O Lord, wast baptized in the Jordan,/ the worship of the Trinity was made manifest;/ for, the voice of the Father bare witness […]

CHRIST IS BORN!

Glorify Him! Troparion, Tone IV —

Thy nativity, O Christ our God, hath shone forth the light of knowledge upon the world; for therein those who worship the stars have been taught by a star to worship Thee, the Sun of righteousness, and to know Thee the Orient from on high. O Lord, glory be […]

Badnji Dan – Christmas Eve

It’s Badnji Dan, Christmas Eve, according to our orthodox calendar, and I am going to go out with my brother and friend Miša to fell the young oak for tonight.

Grant, O God, that there be health and joy in this home, that our grain and grapevines yield well, that children be born healthy to […]
