Four Spiritual Principles

Four principles Orthodox America’s members seek to live by:

1) Daily Getting to know God by Prayer and Bible reading at least, the Epistle and Gospel of the day (see parish wall calendar or can be found at and ideally, the Lives of the Saints (available among other places at;

2) Getting to know one’s self and be purified thru regular Confession, which according to St. Kosmas of Etolia is (and as H G Bishop Kallistos of Dioklia (E.P.) recommends in The Orthodox Church) at least, every three months or whenever needed for spiritual healing;

3) Gaining strength & continual newness thru with a clear conscience, min. monthly but ideally — as taught by St. Nikodemos of Mt. Athos in his booklet “ s s”and countless others — continual Communion; and,

4) Truly helping our fellow man by keeping our part of the Covenant via at least, tithing, giving a min. 10% to God’s work – your choice as to where it is most needed and to which parish or Christian work you feel it should go to. Per so many Scriptures and fathers’ teaching, we in this way, gain God’s supernatural provision (see Mal. 3:7-12 esp. v.10, Mt. 23:23 and Acts 2:43-46).
