성녀 스콜라스티카 (+543년) St Scholastica

스콜라스티카 (St Scholastica) (480년 – 543년) 는 베네딕토 수녀회의 초대 수녀원장이며 누르시아의 베네딕토의 여동생이다.

스콜라스티카는 베네딕토의 쌍둥이 누이동생으로 480년경 이탈리아 노르치아에서 태어났다. 어렸을 때 이미 그녀는 자신의 삶을 하느님에게 바치기로 결심했다. 일찍부터 수비아코의 수녀원에 들어가 생활했으며 나중에는 몬테카시노 기슭의 푸마롤라에서 수도생활을 했다. 성녀에 대해서 알려진 몇 안되는 사실은 성 그레고리오의 《성인전》에 나오는 것인데, 그레고리오는 베네딕토의 생애에 대해서 기록하면서 그의 신성함을 증명하는 많은 기적적인 사건들을 설명하고 있다. 스콜라스티카와 베네딕토는 두 수도원의 가운데 있는 한 집에서 정기적으로 만났다. 마지막 만남이 있던 날 스콜라스티카는 수도원으로 돌아가려는 오빠에게 밤새워 영적인 문제에 대해서 이야기를 나누자고 했으나 베네딕토는 수도원의 규율을 어길 수 없어 돌아가려고 했다. 스콜라스티카가 기도를 올리자 하느님은 그녀의 기도를 들어주어 갑자기 무서운 폭풍이 몰아치게 하 계속 “성녀 스콜라스티카 (+543년) St Scholastica” 읽기

O Virgin Pure

순결하신 동정녀시여, 정결한 테오토코스여

왕비인 동정녀 어머니, 시원한 위로를 주시는

하늘보다 더 높으신, 광채보다 더 빛나는

동정녀들 중 큰 기쁨이신, 천사 중에 가장 높으신

하늘보다 빛을 더 발하고 빛보다 더 투명하신,

하늘의 천사 군대보다 가장 거룩하신

당신께 간청하나이다, 지금 당신을 부릅니다.

왕비여, 불쌍히 여기사 우리를 중보하소서.

정결하고 흠 없는 딸이시여, 동정녀 성모 마리아여

당신께 호소하나이다, 거룩한 성전이시여.

영원한 생명을 유산으로 물려 주소서.

ORTHODOX KOREA

‘Grandma Tatiana,’ as we used to call her, was one of the first women who received Holy Baptism in Korea. She was the daughter of Fr. Alexi Kim, who was captured by the North Koreans and disappeared on the 9th of July, 1950. With her death, the last representative of the ‘first generation’ of Orthodox Koreans ended its existence on earth.

During the final 10 years of her live, she lived in the Metropolis Center for the Elderly, which is affiliated with the parish of St. Boris in Chuncheon.

When the biography of St. Nectarios was published, in 2010, by the press of the Holy Metropolis of Korea, “Korean Orthodox Editions,” Grandma Tatiana Kim liked the book so much that she immediately started translating it into Japanese, without telling anyone about her project. The unforgettable Tatiana knew Japanese well because she lived during the Japanese occupation of Korea, studied Japanese in school, and even lived and 계속 “Saint Nectarios and Grandma Tatiana in Korea” 읽기

Orthodox Korean Ksenia Kim Talks About Her Path To The Church

Source:

http://journeytoorthodoxy.comHERE

Fr. George Maksimov: Hello. You are watching My Path To God, a program about people who during their journey to Orthodoxy had to give up many things and re-consider their ways. We will talk to our guests about things that motivate them and give them strength.

Today our guest is Ksenia Kim, a descendant of Korean people who settled in the Russian Empire more than 150 years ago and seamlessly integrated into the family of peoples of our country. Even before the revolution of 1917, hieromartyr John (Vostorgov) wrote that every year many Japanese, Chinese and Korean people settle in the Russian Empire. He noted that Koreans are the most open to converting to Orthodoxy. Surprisingly, the initiative to convert often came from the Koreans themselves rather than from the Russian authorities or Orthodox clergy. This was the wish of their souls, although, of course, not all the newcomers had it. The revolution of 1917 was followed by a challenging period and the Russian Koreans, just like other peoples of our country, lived through the period of atheism that was forcefully imposed upon our society. Tell me what was the situation in your family and how did you start moving toward Orthodox faith.

Ksenia Kim: I was born in a regular Korean family. Koreans have a difficult spiritual legacy—It is a mixture of Buddhism and shamanism. I remember that my grandmother followed certain rituals. For example, she used to prepare special food and go outside to feed the fallen spirits to please them or ask for help.

Κορέα: Μια θαυμαστή επέμβαση του Αγίου Νεκταρίου

Αγιος Νεκτάριος.JPG

Κυριακή πρωί. Ο ιερός ναός του Αγίου Νικολάου στη Seoul μοιάζει να «λάμπει» λουσμένος στις ανταύγιες αυτού του ηλιόλουστου φθινοπωρινού πρωινού. Ο θεοφιλέστατος Επίσκοπος Ζήλων κ. Σωτήριος, και άλλοι δύο ιερείς -ο π. Aντώνιος Woo και ο π. Αμβρόσιος Ζωγράφος- βρίσκονται ήδη στο ναό και προσκομίζουν. Ο Αναγνώστης διαβάζει την Α’ Ώρα.

Μετά το άναμα του κεριού στο μανουάλι του νάρθηκα, κατευθύνομαι προς την θαυματουργή, παλαιά ρωσσική εικόνα Tης Παναγίας που βρίσκεται αριστερά του Τέμπλου. Γονατίζω, προσκυνώ τη χάρη Tης και Tης ανοίγω διάπλατα την καρδιά μου. Σήμερα το πρωί νιώθω μια ανεξήγητα μεγάλη κι ασυγκράτητη χαρά να πλημμυρίζει την ύπαρξή μου. Την παρακαλώ, την ευχαριστώ…

Καθώς απομακρύνομαι από την εικόνα Tης Παναγίας, διαπιστώνω πως μέσα στο ναό κάνει κρύο. Αποφασίζω να πάω στο δωμάτιό μου για να φορέσω μια πιο ζεστή ζακέτα. Έτσι, βγαίνω από το ναό. Μόλις όμως βρέθηκα στην άκρη του πλατύσκαλου ένιωσα κάτι σαν σπρώξιμο, παραπάτησα και άρχισα να κατεβαίνω με κουλουριασμένο το σώμα ένα -ένα τα σκαλιά της εκκλησίας. Όταν έφτασα στο τελευταίο σκαλί, το σώμα μου είχε πάρει το σχήμα του σαλιγγαριού. Στην προσπάθειά μου να σηκωθώ -δεν υπήρχε κανείς στην αυλή εκείνη την ώρα-ένιωσα πολύ δυνατούς πόνους στη βάση του αυχένα και στο κέντρο της σπονδυλικής στήλης. Σιγά – σιγά και με προσεκτικές κινήσεις έπιασα με τά δυο χέρια το κεφάλι μου για να το στηρίξω και σηκώθηκα. Με δυσκολία κατευθύνθηκα στον ξενώνα που βρίσκεται δίπλα από το ναό για να ζητήσω βοήθεια από δυο Ελληνίδες, οι οποίες τις 계속 “Κορέα: Μια θαυμαστή επέμβαση του Αγίου Νεκταρίου” 읽기
