I feel like St. Anthony the Great when it comes to dealing with the demons of this world. They are all around us and we may be battling them or we may have become complacent in accepting them as just a part of what it means to be living in the world these days. The problem is that this does not have to be. We have the power to change things and make this world a better place by reflecting the grace and the blessings that we have been given by God.
Having a more traditional society will require a great deal of work as we have to change the ideas that have been so ingrained for way to long. We have an opportunity to use the technology that God has given us, and instead of using it for harm, we can use it for good. I believe that groups like this will be a way to bring our Orthodox Christian Society back from the brink of extinction.
Like St. Anthony, we must do battle with the demons. We must not shy away from the fight, and we must rely on Christ for all that we do. With this Brotherhood of fellow believers, we have a powerful weapon to help strengthen all of us for our battles that lie ahead of us. Because of the fallen nature of this world, we will struggle and there will be those that will want to see us fail in our mission, but we must not let them prevail.
As we all start this journey together, please keep in mind that the evil one will make this struggle difficult and will put roadblocks in our way, but we have the power to overcome them by building a society and a Brotherhood on the faith in Christ that we all have and the knowledge that we are working on something that could change our societies for the better.
