His Holiness Patriarch Pavle (Stojčević ) of Serbia (September 11, 1914-November 15, 2009) lived a long life full of Christian asceticism.

His simplicity, meekness, and humility, combined with his strict asceticism inspired the love that millions of believers had for him during his lifetime. Many already considered him a living saint, and after his repose, faith in the holiness of Patriarch Pavle is growing ever more and strengthening in the hearts of the faithful. Today marks the 10th anniversary of his falling asleep in the Lord.

A Quest for Reform of the Orthodox Church- The 1923 Pan-Orthodox Congress: An Analysis and Translation of its Acts and Decisions

Author: Fr. Patrick Viscuso
Publisher: Sebastian Press

It is with pleasure that we welcome the publication in an English translation of the acts and decisions of the 1923 Congress, prepared by the Reverend Dr. Patrick Viscuso, an expert in canon law. In his substantial and excellently researched introduction, Father Viscuso provides the background to that Congress, discussing the difficult international climate of the times, the uncertainties and dangers that the Church faced following World War I, the Russian Revolution, the rise of Turkish nationalism, European politics and national aspirations, all of which affected the lives of millions of Orthodox Christians in Europe and the Near East. Orthodox Christians should be grateful to Father Viscuso for giving them the opportunity not only to read important decisions of the Church, but also to reflect on the problems the Church faced in the early twentieth century, and its willingness to adopt reforms for the benefit of the Church’s pleroma. Renewing the Church is not antithetical to the experience of the Church in history. The Reverend Dr. Patrick Viscuso is a Professor of Canon Law at the Antiochian House of Studies and the Pastoral School of the Diocese of Chicago and Mid-Atlantic, an Orthodox canonist, and a priest of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. His doctorate in historical theology from the Catholic University of America concentrated on Byzantine and Oriental canon law, patristic studies, and church history. He also holds a Master of Divinity from Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology and a Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service from the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University. He is the author of numerous scholarly articles and five books.
