Infancy Gospel of James

I realize that I am posting this a little later than I usually do, but better late than never. Here is a link to the Infancy Gospel of James in pdf format. It is unknown whether or not James actually authored this piece of tradition, however it is a worth while read. Whether or not there is any truth in it is known to the Father and Saints alone but it has much to say to us during this Christmas…

Orthodox Calendar: Feasts and Fasts

Using the information published on The Orthodox Church in America’s website and Apple’s iCal I am making a calendar containing the Feasts and Fasts of the Orthodox Church. The calendars can be viewed, printed, downloaded, and subscribed (for those lucky enough to have a Mac, although I hear there are plugins for some win apps to subscribe also) to at for the Feasts and for the Fasts.…

Gospel of James

I was planning on waiting until December to post this, but do to recent discoveries I feel it appropriate now. Here is a link to the Gospel of James. Yes I realize that it is not canonical in any church, however, it is an important text because it explains a lot of what the Catholic and Orthodox churches believe about Mary and the Incarnation of Jesus.
