22/11/2023: PATERNAL ADVICE
749 (‘NOUS’-MIND/ BRAIN/ SOBRIETY/ PRAYER/ PHILOKALIA)
We should be aware, my brethren, that as man is a dual entity (comprising soul and body), we do have both ‘nous’ (mind) and brain.
‘Nous’ belongs to the soul and the brain to the body.
We should also be aware that the task of the ‘nous’ (mind) is to pray without ceasing through and in the heart and not to think through the brain!
And the brain will simply carry out the suggestions of the (enlightened) nous and thus everything will be in order!
We, most of the time, not to say always, operate the ‘nous’ (mind) by using our brain and in the end, what we manage to do is not to take the right decisions and thus the whole thing becomes a headache...
And in extreme cases, people with a lot of this kind of stress - on something that may torment them too much - may even have a stroke!
So, I repeat:
The job of the ‘nous’ (mind) is to pray unceasingly through and in the heart, and the brain will simply carry out the suggestions of the (enlightened) ‘nous’, and thus we will maintain our sobriety and calmness, but our decisions will also be enlightened...
Do not act hysterically and hastily in the face of a matter presented to you.
Let your ‘nous’ (mind) pray through the heart (in the area of the chest) and when you get insight information about what is right and what must be done, carry on...
Today's man is very weary from the strain on his mind and brain.
We are in need, my brethren, of Sobriety and Prayer.
If you too are tired of this strain, I would recommend to you our 95 Sermons on the Philokalia and the Jesus Prayer, which we have in the course of the last years presented in the ‘Archontariki’ (Guest House/Reception) of our Monastery.
(*) I believe that the all-powerful Jesus Prayer is already well known:
«LORD JESUS CHRIST, SON OF GOD, HAVE MERCY ON ME»
You may find them on our YouTube channel "PHILOKALIA", Playlist:

742 (EXHIBITS OF THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION FOR THE LESSON OF SEXUAL EDUCATION WHICH IS GRAVELY SUFFERING)
THIS POST IS NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN UNDER 18 YEARS OLD!!!
My dear brethren,
WHEREAS unfortunately there is currently an one-sidedness in all sectors and especially in the media, i.e. a lack of objectivity, due to the examination of only the one side on this matter
AND WHEREAS the homosexual movement (LGBT+) in Cyprus accuses us of stigmatizing them when we speak against homosexuality (that is, what our faith teaches us and which we believe and profess), which to them is considered wrong before the “law”…, BUT is NOT considered wrong (here again we detect bias) when the media -through either the Ministry of Education or through other institutions- are branding us as delusional, fanatics, extremists, misinformers (that is, that we say things that the Ministry of Education does not put into practice) and God knows what else… whilst the only thing we do is simply to express our opinion, on the very serious issue of sexual education of our children.
We present today on our website texts and documentary evidence selected from those already published by the Ministry of Education itself, on the subject of compulsory Holistic sexual education in schools.
We are stating the above to show why we should not be blamed for allegedly misinforming the public and for creating fake news…
Because, if after the evidence we present, which in fact is the same as that of the Ministry of Education, we are still accused of misinforming the people, then in reality, the one who misinforms, would be the Ministry of Education itself, which has allegedly prepared “fake” texts, which are not in use…
Therefore, so that the Ministry of Education may not be accused of spreading misinformation, one must accept that what follows is true and in use, since it is evidence from the Ministry’s own posts.
Unfortunately, the Ministry of Education, Sports and Youth, argues (and unfortunately managed to convince the Archbishop) that the purpose of the subject of Sexual Education is to inform the children of primary and secondary education, about the dangers of sexual exploitation and abuse…
But is that really how things are?
In fact, this is nothing more than the “cloak” used by those who coined the subject of sexual education, behind which lies the decisive effort/movement to dominate the world of the ideology of pan-sexualism and at the same time the recognition of the LGBT+ Community and their legal protection (matters of same-sex marriage, adoption, etc.)
So, we would say, without any hesitation, that the lesson of Sexual Education not only DOES NOT protect our children from the dangers of sexual exploitation and abuse, but this same sexual education constitutes sexual abuse of our innocent children (!!!), as you will see in the documents that follow…
We hope, from our side, that his Beatitude our Archbishop together with the rest of the Holy Synod, whom we respect and cherish, after they will carefully read all the documents listed below, will revise their position on the matter of Sexual Education and will keep a strong and dynamic presence, in order to preserve the sacred morals and the dignity of our Greek Orthodox Culture.
Otherwise, the abolition of our sacred morals and by extension our faith, will bring by mathematical precision the complete collapse of our national problem… (compare the War of the Israelites with the Midianites, in the Old Testament).
Moreover, our Holy Hierarchs will provide strength and support to our faithful to continue their struggle, because for the time being -as they tell us- our flock feels betrayed and abandoned, like sheep without a shepherd…
What follows, is intended for all bona fide believers and for every other citizen of the Republic of Cyprus suggesting to them to judge by themselves this lesson about the Sexual Education, through the texts of the Ministry of Education, whether it would be good or bad and whether it would be beneficial or harmful to our children.
Then, go further down to page 2 and, after noting the page referred to by that source, you may open the link and find the page.
We apologize for the inappropriate Annex, but we were forced to append it because we were stigmatized that we are misinforming the world…
Warm thanks are due to the “PARENTS SOLIDARITY” and especially to Mrs. Eleni Costa (mother of 6 children!!!), their representative, for her kindness to provide us with all this material, which she gathered with so much effort and toil all these years, from 2012 until today!
With love in Christ,
The Holy Monastery of Trooditissa

«ΟΙΚΟΓΕΝΕΙΑ. …/Δύο μαμάδες με τα παιδιά τους/…/Δύο μπαμπάδες με τα παιδιά τους/…»
Το tick με την πέννα ανήκει στην δασκάλα!
Έγινε στα πλαίσια του μαθήματος ΑΓΩΓΗ ΖΩΗΣ, στην Γ’ Δημοτικού, σε σχολείο στην Λευκωσία!
Να διευκρινίσουμε, ότι αυτό που έγραψαν τα παιδάκια της Γ’ Δημοτικού ήτο καθ’ υπαγόρευσιν της δασκάλας!
Και ο περιβόητος…αυνανισμός!!! Έχει παιδιά που τον αγνοούν… Και το…καλό Σχολείο θα τους μάθει αυτό, που μετά θα τους είναι πολύ δύσκολο, χωρίς την χάρη του Θεού, να βγουν από τα “γρανάτζια” του…
Άραγε λένε όλη την αλήθεια στις μαθήτριες (αν το γνωρίζουν βέβαια οι διδάσκοντες, κάτι που το αμφιβάλλουμε), ότι το “αντισυλληπτικό” Ενδομήτριο Σπείραμα, σε περίπτωση σύλληψης (που δεν αποκλείεται) λειτουργεί και εκτρωτικά;(!!!) Δεν αφήνει δηλ. το έμβρυο (το ζυγωτό-συλληφθέν ωάριο) να εμφυτευθεί στην μήτρα και ο οργανισμός το αποβάλλει…
Αυτό, πρέπει να διευκρινιστεί, ότι επέχει ευθύνη αφαίρεσης ζωής, γιατί, μόλις γίνει η σύλληψη σπερματοζωαρίου και ωαρίου, ταυτόχρονα έχουμε τον άνθρωπο, ως ψυχοσωματική οντότητα. (“Άμα σώμα και η ψυχή πέπλασται, λέγει ο άγιος Ιωάννης ο Δαμασκηνός”. Δηλ. δεν προηγείται η δημιουργία του σώματος από την δημιουργία της ψυχής ούτε αντιστρόφως. Μόλις γίνει η σύλληψη, το ζυγωτό αυτό είναι εμψυχωμένο).
Έχουν γίνει δε μελέτες, που απέδειξαν ότι, κοπέλα που έχει μόνιμα Ενδομήτριο Σπείρωμα, κάθε χρόνο γίνεται σημαντικός αριθμός αποβολών (ανθρωπίνων δηλ. ζωών) -ανάλογα βέβαια και με την συχνότητα των συνευρέσεων- χωρίς η ίδια να το αντιληφθεί…
Πόσο, άραγε, βάρος θα έχει αυτό και αντίκτυπο στην μετέπειτα ζωή τους…;
Αυτό, ερωτούμε, το λένε στις μαθήτριες οι…ειδήμονες;
Αυτά ήσαν ενδεικτικά μόνον τεκμήρια. (Για όλα τα Τεκμήρια βλ. SOURCES-PARENTS’ POSITION (click) και από κει την παραπομπή της στις ΠΗΓΕΣ).
Εξαιρετικά κατατοπιστική είναι και η παρουσίαση που έκανε η κ. Ελένη Κώστα, εκ μέρους της “Αλληλεγγύης Γονέων”:
