ANCIENT FAITH

Four-time Emmy award-winner Jonathan Jackson, star of General Hospital and Tuck Everlasting, talks with Fr. Andrew Stephen Damick about his journey into Orthodox Christianity, his family, how he lives his faith as a Hollywood actor, music and writing, on this special episode of Roads From Emmaus.

Fr. Andrew Stephen Damick: This is Fr. Andrew Stephen Damick, and this is kind of a different episode of Roads From Emmaus. You’re used to hearing me talk in front of a microphone to a bunch of people listening in at a lecture, but today actually we’re doing a conversation. I’m doing an interview with someone. Why would I do that? The reason is that I’m very dedicated to questions of communion and place and what is local and what is connected directly. So once I had heard that my guest for today was out on the East Coast, we worked out a way to connect in person. We’re currently sitting in the parking lot of Newark Liberty International Airport, where he is getting ready to get on his plane to head back to the West Coast.

My guest today is Mr. Jonathan Jackson, who is an actor and a musician perhaps best known for his guest role as Lucky Spencer on General Hospital, which has played for the last couple of years—well, they think you’re taking a break now—but also you’re in a film, Tuck Everlasting, from about ten years ago. He’s won four Emmys, and he also had a recurring role on the Fox series The Sarah Connor Chronicles, which is a spin-off from the Terminator movies, and he has his own band, which is called Enation, and that is why he was here on the East Coast.

Why, you may ask, am I interviewing a man who is a soap opera star? Well, the reason is that right now, he and his family are catechumens in the Orthodox Church. So, thank you very much for meeting with me. I am very honored to be with you, truly.

Mr. Jonathan Jackson: Thank you, Father. I am honored as well. I appreciate it. Glad to be here.

Fr. Andrew: My first question is: how did you get here? What is your religious background?

Mr. Jackson: Both of my parents were raised Seventh-Day Adventists, about probably four generations on each side, Seventh-Day Adventists. So I grew up with that as part of my Christian upbringing until probably about the age of nine or ten. My parents started moving away from that particular denomination. And we moved to Los Angeles when I was ten, just turning 11, started working as an actor pretty quickly. I started on General Hospital when I was 11, so I started really…

Fr. Andrew: Right, and just for those of my listeners who are a little bit older, you may remember from the late 1970s and the early ‘80s, the super-couple Luke and Laura on General Hospital, and Jonathan played their son, Lucky. So that puts you within the soap opera pantheon.

Mr. Jackson: When I moved to L.A., we didn’t have a church that we went to at all. And my brother and I, Richard Lee Jackson—he’s an actor, and he’s in Continue reading “From General Hospital to the Hospital of Souls:  Interview with Jonathan Jackson, USA”

De qué manera podemos nosotros honrar a nuestros difuntos cercanos

CATECISMO ORTODOXO

Vemos a menudo la tendencia que tienen los familiares de la persona fallecida, al incurrir en erogaciones para que el sepulcro y el sepelio sean lo más lujosos posible. Por lo general, el mayor gasto se efectúa en la realización de suntuosas lápidas.

Mucho dinero desembolsan los familiares y los amigos en plantas y flores, que además deben retirarse del ataúd antes de cerrarlo, para que ello no intensifique la descomposición del cuerpo.

Algunos quieren a través de la litografía manifestar su respeto al difunto y la condolencia a sus familiares. Este método revela a veces superficialidad de sentimientos y engaño, ya que realmente la persona que sufre no va a publicar su sufrimiento. La condolencia se puede demostrar personalmente de una manera mucho más cálida.

Pero sea lo que fuere que hagamos, de lo mencionado más arriba, el difunto no va a recibir ningún beneficio.

Al cuerpo muerto le es lo mismo estar bajo una pobre o una suntuosa lápida, estar en un pobre o en un lujoso féretro, él no va a sentir la fragancia de las flores, y no necesita las demostraciones de dolor fingidas. El cuerpo se somete a la descomposición, el alma vive, pero no percibe más las sensaciones que apreciaban antes sus órganos corporales.

Si realmente queremos al difunto, y verdaderamente queremos ofrecerle nuestras dádivas, entonces debemos darle lo que el necesita. Antes que nada, entregarle nuestras sinceras oraciones personales hogareñas al Señor, las oraciones a través de los oficios del Responso en la Iglesia, y muy en especial la conmemoración del difunto en la Divina Liturgia.

Otro beneficio muy importante que podemos brindarle al alma — es la realización de dádivas o donaciones. Alimentar al hambriento en nombre del difunto, ayudar al indigente, es lo mismo que hacerlo con el.

Santa Atanasia, cuya festividad se conmemora el 12 de abril, antes de fallecer, encomendó que se les diera de comer a los indigentes en su memoria durante 40 días, sin embargo las monjas del convento lo cumplieron solo durante 9 días.

Por lo cual la santa se les apareció junto a dos ángeles y les dijo “¿Porque Uds. se olvidaron de mi legado? Sepan que las donaciones y las oraciones de los sacerdotes, dadas en nombre del difunto durante 40 días atraen la misericordia de Dios”: si el alma del difunto fue pecadora, el Señor les da el perdón de los pecados, y si es que ella fue justa, entonces las personas que rezan por ella van a ser recompensadas con beneficios”

En particular, en estos días difíciles para todos, es una locura gastar dinero inútilmente para adquirir elementos superfluos, cuando, al aplicarlos en la asistencia a los indigentes, se pueden realizar dos buenas obras, una para el difunto, y otra para el necesitado.

Si se le da alimento a un necesitado, con oración en memoria del difunto, el necesitado se va a satisfacer corporalmente, y el difunto va a quedar satisfecho espiritualmente.

Завръщане у дома

Защо протестантските пастори стават православни?

Под редакцията на о. Питър Гилкуист

Санта Барбара, Калифорния, САЩ

Предговор

“Царството небесно прилича още на търговец, който търси хубави бисери, и като намери един скъпоценен бисер, отиде та продаде всичко, що имаше, и го купи”. (Мат. 13:45-46)

Защо протестантските пастори стават православни

Идеята за тази книга се роди на едно от събранията на редакторите на сп. ‘ОТНОВО’- тримесечното издание на Антиохийската Евангелска Православна Мисия. Главният редактор о.Уелдън Хардънбрук, зам. редакторът дякон Рей Зел, и аз нахвърляхме идеи за следващи броеве. Докато разговаряхме, разбрахме, че всички ние бяхме получили многобройни писма и телефонни обаждания от протестантски пастири, желаещи да научат нещо повече за Православието.

Дали това е растяща тенденция, питахме се ние, и ако да, какво се крие зад нея?

Специалният брой

Решихме да планираме специален брой на “ОТНОВО”, за който да поканим представителна група протестантски пастори, наскоро станали православни, да ни разкажат защо са дошли и да отговорят на въпроса “Защо от протестантските богословски училища излизат православни свещеници?”

Когато отговорите започнаха да пристигат, ние осъзнахме колко важна може да е тази тема за читателите ни. Разказите бяха вдъхновяващи, информативни, понякога забавни и често сърцераздирателни. Да видиш как толкова много различни хора, всички всеотдайни пастори и църковни лидери, служили предано в различните си деноминации, разказват как Бог ги е довел в древната Православна Вяра – това беше едно от най-насърчителните начинания, с което някой от нас се беше заемал. Понякога то напомняше за Петдесетница, когато хора с невероятно различно минало се събираха за да се обединят в Църквата, основана на този ден.

Реакцията

“ОТНОВО” едва бе споходил пощенските кутии и читателските писма запристигаха. Това се оказа най-успешният брой на списанието! Обадиха ни Continue reading “Питър Гилкуист, Санта Барбара, Калифорния, САЩ: Завръщане у дома – Защо протестантските пастори стават православни? ╰⊰¸¸.•¨* Bulgarian”
