The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Father Alister Anderson is an Eastern Orthodox priest, a retired Army chaplain, and the great-grandson of the second Episcopal bishop of Mississippi.
In all Eastern Orthodox Churches, this troparion or prayer is spoken or sung frequently in worship: “O Lord, save Thy people and bless Thine inheritance. Grant victories to the Orthodox Christians over their adversaries; and by virtue of Thy Cross, preserve Thy habitation.”
Saint Macarius’s words illustrate how this new and heavenly man finds visual expression in the art of the icon. In the icon, the Orthodox Church sees an important expression of our Faith in its totality.
