Sunday of the Holy Fathers

The highest authority within the Church itself is the Ecumenical Council. During the early period of the Christian Church, many councils were held to establish once and for all the basic beliefs of the Christian Church. Hundreds of Church Fathers gathered in many placed during a four-century period to settle many problems which arose from within the Church Community. Church laws were established. The date on which Easter should be celebrated was fixed. False teachings were exposed and the truth of the Church was preserved.

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
