St. Nicholas National Shrine - Monthly Newsletter - October 2022

From the first days after the horrific attacks on 9/11, there was mournful dread about the ashes that littered downtown New York, as if all joy in the world had been reduced to rubble with the destruction of the Twin Towers. The loss of life was so horrendous, as it says in the Book of Lamentations, that the entire Nation and the world sat in silence, dust and ashes covered our heads; we were girt with the sackcloth of grief, and our heads were bowed to the ground (Lamentations 2:10).

Friends of St. Nicholas February 2022 Newsletter

At the beginning of this month of February, we remembered in the Church the person and ministry of Saint Photios the Great, Patriarch of Constantinople (d. February 6, 891 AD). This brilliant Ecumenical Patriarch is famous for a multitude of reasons, but the one I want to highlight, vis-à-vis our National Shrine, is his commitment to spreading the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. His missionary zeal was truly apostolic, not a proselytizing chauvinism. And it is this spirit that our Saint Nicholas National Shrine will invoke for all who cross its holy threshold. Read More
