The first Sunday of Great Lent is known as the Sunday or Triumph of Orthodoxy, in which victory over the iconoclasts, who opposed the veneration of the holy icons, is celebrated. The Church teaches that we can depict Christ in iconography because He became incarnate, taking on a visible body. Thus the icons are a safeguard to the dogma of the Incarnation.

On this Sunday we process with holy icons, professing the triumph of Truth over falsehood. This video presents highlights of the Divine Liturgy and procession with the holy icons on the Sunday of Orthodoxy, 2017, at the Holy and Great Monastery of Vatopedi.

On Elder Ephraim, Founder and Elder of St. Anthony's Monastery

It is said that the state of monasticism in a local Church is a microcosm of the state of that entire local Church, and thus America is undoubtedly in need of strong monasteries that can provide clear, Patristic guidance. Elder Ephraim came to America in response to the pleas of the faithful to provide this guidance, but in doing so many questions have been raised concerning the nature of Orthodox monasticism and teachings. To assess his role and importance for American Orthodoxy it is helpful to investigate his life and spiritual development, which will provide insight into him whom Metropolitan Hierotheos Vlachos says “received fire, and ... has imparted this fire ... to the Church in America that has great need of it.”
