Церковные ВѢХИ

Extra Ecclesiam nulla salus. Outside the Church there is no salvation, because salvation is the Church. For salvation is the revelation of the way for everyone who believes in Christ's name. This revelation is to be found only in the Church. In the Church, as in the Body of Christ, in its theanthropic organism, the mystery of incarnation, the mystery of the "two natures," indissolubly united, is continually accomplished. -Fr. Georges Florovsky

ΟΡΘΟΔΟΞΙΑ Ή ΘΑΝΑΤΟΣ!

ΟΡΘΟΔΟΞΙΑ Ή ΘΑΝΑΤΟΣ!
§ 20. For our faith, brethren, is not of men nor by man, but by revelation of Jesus Christ, which the divine Apostles preached, the holy Ecumenical Councils confirmed, the greatest and wisest teachers of the world handed down in succession, and the shed blood of the holy martyrs ratified. Let us hold fast to the confession which we have received unadulterated from such men, turning away from every novelty as a suggestion of the devil. He that accepts a novelty reproaches with deficiency the preached Orthodox Faith. But that Faith has long ago been sealed in completeness, not to admit of diminution or increase, or any change whatever; and he who dares to do, or advise, or think of such a thing has already denied the faith of Christ, has already of his own accord been struck with an eternal anathema, for blaspheming the Holy Ghost as not having spoken fully in the Scriptures and through the Ecumenical Councils. This fearful anathema, brethren and sons beloved in Christ, we do not pronounce today, but our Savior first pronounced it (Matt. xii. 32): Whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. St. Paul pronounced the same anathema (Gal. i. 6): I marvel that ye are so soon removed from Him that called you into the grace of Christ, unto another Gospel: which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the Gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you, than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. This same anathema the Seven Ecumenical Councils and the whole choir of God-serving fathers pronounced. All, therefore, innovating, either by heresy or schism, have voluntarily clothed themselves, according to the Psalm (cix. 18), ("with a curse as with a garment,") whether they be Popes, or Patriarchs, or Clergy, or Laity; nay, if any one, though an angel from heaven, preach any other Gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. Thus our wise fathers, obedient to the soul-saving words of St. Paul, were established firm and steadfast in the faith handed down unbrokenly to them, and preserved it unchanged and uncontaminate in the midst of so many heresies, and have delivered it to us pure and undefiled, as it came pure from the mouth of the first servants of the Word. Let us, too, thus wise, transmit it, pure as we have received it, to coming generations, altering nothing, that they may be, as we are, full of confidence, and with nothing to be ashamed of when speaking of the faith of their forefathers. - Encyclical of the Holy Eastern Patriarchs of 1848

За ВѢру Царя И Отечество

За ВѢру Царя И Отечество
«Кто еси мимо грядый о нас невѣдущиiй, Елицы здѣ естесмо положены сущи, Понеже нам страсть и смерть повѣлѣ молчати, Сей камень возопiетъ о насъ ти вѣщати, И за правду и вѣрность къ Монарсѣ нашу Страданiя и смерти испiймо чашу, Злуданьем Мазепы, всевѣчно правы, Посѣченны зоставше топоромъ во главы; Почиваемъ въ семъ мѣстѣ Матери Владычнѣ, Подающiя всѣмъ своимъ рабомъ животь вѣчный. Року 1708, мѣсяца iюля 15 дня, посѣчены средь Обозу войсковаго, за Бѣлою Церковiю на Борщаговцѣ и Ковшевомъ, благородный Василiй Кочубей, судiя генеральный; Iоаннъ Искра, полковникъ полтавскiй. Привезены же тѣла ихъ iюля 17 въ Кiевъ и того жъ дня въ обители святой Печерской на семъ мѣстѣ погребены».

RUSSIAN FISH PIROGH

A delicious mixture of salmon, rice and eggs encased in crisp puff pastry.
Serves 4
Ready in 1 hour, 30 minutes


Ingredients

50g Asda Butter, plus a little for greasing
550g salmon fillet (Trout or Ahi, Mahi Mahi May be Used Instead)
1 medium onion, chopped
100g mushrooms, sliced
75g long grain rice, boiled
3 medium eggs, hardboiled and chopped
1tbsp parsley, chopped
1tbsp dill, chopped
Finely grated zest half lemon
500g readymade puff pastry
1 egg, beaten

/100g of Bean Sprouts along with 1 Tsp of Soy Sauce may be included to the filling to give it a "Chinese" Russian or "Harbin" flavour./

Method

1 Preheat the oven to 200C/ 180C Fan/Gas 6. Put a large piece of foil on a baking sheet and grease with butter. Put the salmon on top and wrap to make a loose parcel with room inside for the air to circulate easily. Cook for 12 minutes. Cool, skin and break the fish into large flakes, discarding bones.

2 Melt the butter in a pan and cook the onion over a low heat until soft. Add mushrooms and cook for another 5 minutes. Tip into a bowl. Add the rice, eggs, salmon, parsley, dill and lemon zest. Mix and season.

3 Roll the pastry out to a 37cm square. Cut into two lengths – one 17cm wide, one 20cm wide. Put the smallest on a baking tray and brush with beaten egg. Pile the fish mixture on top in a mound, leaving 3cm of pastry all round.

4 Fold the larger piece of pastry in half and make parallel cuts along the fold to within 6cm from the edge. Unfold and lay on top of the other piece of pastry. Press the edges together to seal, then trim with a knife. Brush with egg. Bake for 30-35 minutes
