Those who say they abide in Christ ought to walk in the same way He walked.
1 John 2:6
A Christian is an imitator of Christ in thought, word, and deed, as far as this is humanly possible.

Welcome to ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN REFLECTIONS. This is the website of Fr. Theodore Stylianopoulos, a Greek Orthodox priest and Professor Emeritus at Hellenic College / Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in Brookline, MA., where he taught New Testament and Orthodox Spirituality during 1967-2008. Fr. Theodore’s purpose here is to share some of the fruits of his labors on biblical and patristic studies, on prayer and spiritual struggle, and on the life of the Church, with the prayer and hope that interested readers might be edified in their own journeys of faith in Christ the Savior.
