Why Are You In Church?

Countless men and women over the centuries have defended the Truth of Orthodox Christianity, sometimes offering their blood in martyrdom. Why would someone stand up with such boldness? Why Orthodoxy and not some other Church? Why are you a member of the Orthodox Church and not some other Church? Have you ever considered these questions?

Fr. Athanasios Haros helps us reflect on why we’re here and shares the news of countless Saints over the centuries who have chosen the life of spiritual discipline over earthly comfort and have been honored for their choice.

IT’S TIME TO SPEAK OUT!

Across the world, Christians are suffering for their faith. Attacked by ISIS and harangued by extremism, Christianity is in danger of being eradicated in the lands of its birth. Yet very few people in the West seem to care — or even know!

That’s why we at OCN believe it’s time to speak out. We’ve covered this issue for a long time, but want to dedicate even more resources to raising awareness and spurring action, using our massive social media following. We reach MILLIONS of people per week, and it’s time for collective action.

Please support this effort by giving to our “10 cent per day” campaign. 100% of your gift will go directly to expanding this ministry, 0% to overhead. Together, we can and will make a difference!

— Fr. Christopher T. Metropulos, OCN Executive Director
