Akoulouthia For the Blessing of a New Mill

  • Text Hover

“His first ‘obedience’ was to work in the Monastery mill. Those were flourishing days for Russian monasticism on Mount Athos. Saint Panteleimon had expanded until it stood like a small city in the surrounding ‘desert’. The number of brethren rose to almost two thousand, and from Russia visitors and worshippers came in their hundreds.…  All this kept the mill extremely busy. Yet Brother Simeon*, who slept so little and ate so sparingly, who ceaselessly devoted himself to ardent prayer, shedding abundant and at times despairing tears punctually performed the hard work he had been set, each day lifting and transporting a heavy weight of sacks of flour.”


Saint Silouan the Athonite, 1991, Elder Sophrony (Sakharov –a disciple of St. Silouan), p. 25

*St. Silouan’s name before monastic tonsure


A beautiful service found in the Greek-language Book of Needs, providing a meaningful dedication of a new mill which will grind the flour to make the prosphora for the Eucharist and other Liturgical offerings.


Presented here is a prayer
From the translations of Schema-Archimandrite John (Lewis+, 2007).

The Harmony of Monarchy and Russian Orthodox Christianity

The world is intrigued this year with the crowning of Charles III of the United Kingdom. Yet let us never forget the glorious reign of another monarchy, the Romanov Dynasty. A little more than 100 years ago, just three days before the start of the Great Fast, Tsar-martyr Nicholas II abdicated the throne, on March 15, 1917, bringing to an end to more than 300 years of Romanov rule. After the light of Pascha shone on the world that year, within a few months the enemies of Christ led Russia into a dark phase of its history, with the regicide of the anointed ruler.


Archpriest Constantine Desrosiers, Ph.D., brilliantly asserts that we must not fix our eyes exclusively on earthly political events, but rather on the Mystery of the Holy Spirit working within human history.
