An Important Message Before I Return

Dear Readers:

Before I return to my regular posting schedule on this site, there are a few updates I wanted to inform you about.

First of all, I want to thank all those who have financially contributed to this ministry and placed value in it. Without you, we would not exist.

However, contributions for this year are much lower than last year, which does not look good for the future of this ministry, so if you have not contributed and want to see this ministry continue and grow, then I encourage you to send in your contribution through the link above that says SUPPORT THIS MINISTRY. If you want to help by being a sponsor and advertise on this and our other pages, check out the link above that says ADVERTISE WITH US. I thank you in advance.

Speaking of links above, you will notice an old link titled SAINTS & FEASTS. I have not edited this in a long time, but in the past few days I began the process of updating it. Though I have a long way to go, the current month of June is for the part completed. So if you scroll down to the month of June, you will see it populated more than the rest, with postings of the Saints and Feasts for each day of June. For example, today is June 11th, and if you click on the link above and scroll down to June 11th, you will notice a number of posts I made in the past related to the Saints and Feasts celebrated on June 11th. Before July 1st, I will have the month of July updated, and so on through the year. It is my hope that my readers will find this much more convenient to find the Saints and Feasts for a particular day to both read and share.

Two other links above lead you to my new websites, HONEY AND HEMLOCK and BIO-ORTHODOXY. These two sites will be regularly updated, perhaps not daily but at least a few times a week. I encourage you to visit them and follow them through Facebook and Twitter. And yes, there are more websites to come in the near future.

I also have some exciting news! I have created an app to download for free in order to give my readers more convenient access to these websites through their cell phones and tablets. You can download the app through the link above that says DOWNLOAD OUR APP, and it is compatible with Android, iPhone and Blackberry devices.

The link titled RESOURCES contains resource pages to make postings on a particular subject easier to find. The next resource page will be made this week to cover postings dealing with the Sundays after Pentecost until the completion of the Apostles Fast.

Lastly, a change has been made to this site that some people may not be too happy about. Though this website can be accessed by all for free and I encourage the distribution of the material posted here and on the other websites, at the same time there have been way too many abuses and mishandlings of this material which has led me to lock the copy and paste function for this site. Pictures can still be copied at leisure, but text cannot. The printing function also still works, if you want to print an article. I understand this is inconvenient to some, but this is only done so that my permission can be given to distribute the material posted. For example, if you have a parish newsletter and want to copy a particular article, then I ask you to simply email me which article you want and for what, and I will send you the article to put in your newsletter. Until I figure out a better way to do this, this is how things will be for now. Thank you for understanding.

I hope to return to posting within a few days. There are many great posts that I'm excited to share with you.

With love in Christ,

John Sanidopoulos
