FAITHBOOK – ORTHODOXY

Φεβρουάριος 2019: Δύο χιλιάδες Προτεστάντες και πάνω από 50 Πάστορες βαπτίζονται Ορθόδοξοι στην Ινδία

Με την ευλογία του Μητροπολίτη Βολοκολάμσκ Ιλαρίωνα, Ρώσοι Ορθόδοξοι κληρικοί από την Αμερική, τον Καναδά και τη Ρωσία βρίσκονται στην Ινδία και έχουν ξεκινήσει τη διαδικασία βαπτίσματος 2.000 Προτεσταντών στην Ορθοδοξία, συμπεριλαμβανομένων περίπου 50-100 πρώην Προτεσταντών Παστόρων. Με συνεχή κατήχηση στους ντόπιους υπολογίζεται ότι σύντομα στην Ινδία περισσότεροι από 100.000 άνθρωποι θα ασπαστούν την Ορθοδοξία. Η ομάδα αποστολής διευθύνεται από τον Αμερικανό π. Αθανάσιο Kone (ROCOR) και τον πατέρα Γεώργιο Μαξιμόφ του Πατριαρχείου Μόσχας.

JOURNEY TO ORTHODOXY

Football is a given: How was this year’s Super Bowl experience versus XL? Tomlin versus Cowher? Goals for the coming season?

Fatherhood is new in Polamalu’s life since the birth of his son, Paisios, named after a beloved contemporary Greek Orthodox monastic, Elder Paisios, on Oct. 31, 2008. Has daddy-dom been life-changing? Will he encourage his son to play professional sports? How’s that beautiful new mom doing?

And last but not least: Faith. In order to properly meet Polamalu where he lives, this is the requisite, the grounding force that gives meaning to everything he does, every play he makes. Polamalu’s evident gratitude to the one who made him is marbled throughout our talk – from his training regime to his travels to Mount Athos, a monastic site in Greece, a place he calls “heaven on earth.”

While he has a reputation for being one of the NFL’s fiercest players, Polamalu would prefer “Tasmanian angel” over “Tasmanian devil” because his ball game is about glorifying God. “Football is part of my life but not life itself,” he says. “Football doesn’t define me. It’s what I do [and] how I carry out my faith.”

Whether shooting a Coke Zero commercial or running up the sand hills on Manhattan Beach to train – which he’s probably off to do after this interview – Polamalu, 27, is refreshingly modest and introspective, choosing his words as precisely as he picks his spots on the gridiron.

JOURNEY TO ORTHODOXY

With the blessing of Metropolitan Hilarion, First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, Russian Orthodox clergy and nuns from America, Canada and Russia are in India, and have begun the process of baptizing 2,000 people into Orthodoxy, including over 50-100 former Protestant Pastors.

For the past several months, extensive catechism has been taught to the local people.

This is the beginning of reception of over 100,000 people into the Holy Orthodox Church.

The Mission Team is being led by Fr. Athanasius Kone (ROCOR) and Fr. George Maximov of the Moscow Patriarchate.
