Ο ΠΑΤΕΡΑΣ ΙΓΝΑΤΙΟΣ ΤΗΣ ΧΕΒΡΩΝΑΣ ΜΕ ΤΟΝ ΠΑΤΕΡΑ ΓΕΩΡΓΙΟ – ΑΠΟΣΠΑΣΜΑ ΑΠΟ ΤΟ ΝΕΟ ΒΙΒΛΙΟ “ΜΥΣΤΙΚΑ ΒΙΩΜΑΤΑ ΣΤΗΝ ΑΓΙΑ ΓΗ”ΤΗΣ ΣΟΦΙΑΣ ΚΙΟΡΟΓΛΟΥ

Η εικόνα ίσως περιέχει: 2 άτομα, άτομα στέκονται

Ο Πατέρας Ιγνάτιος

ήταν ένας αληθινός ομολογητής της πίστεως και

έζησε μία ζωή «Κατακομβίτου Ασκητού». Στε-
νός φίλος του Αγίου Ιωάννου Μαξίμοβιτς, δεν

επέτρεπε σε αιρετικούς να εισέλθουν στο μονα-
στήρι. Οι κακουχίες και οι διωγμοί από τη ρω-
σική εκκλησία του άθεου καθεστώτος ήταν ατέ-
λειωτες. Κάποτε βγήκε με ένα ραβδί και έδιωξε

μέλη του Πατριαρχείου της Μόσχας, που είχαν
έρθουν να μολύνουν το μοναστήρι. Ήθελαν να

του το πάρουν. Οι μουσουλμάνοι τον θεωρού-
σαν Άγιο και έτρεχαν να φιλήσουν το τριμμένo

ράσο του. Το ίδιο και οι Εβραίοι. Ήταν καρ-
διακός φίλος του Αγίου Ιωάννη του Χοζεβίτου,

με τον οποίο αντάμωναν συχνά στα μέρη του

Ιορδάνη. Ο Όσιος Ιωάννης μαζί με τον καρδια-
κό του φίλο μοναχό Ιωαννίκιο κατέφευγαν για

προσευχή εκεί και έτσι συναντούσαν τον Πατέ-
ρα Ιγνάτιο που ήταν επιστάτης των ωπορώνων

που ανήκαν στην Ρωσική Ορθόδοξη Ιεραποστο-
λή.

MAΡΤΥΡΙΑ ΠΡΩΤΗ

-Δεν με γνώριζε κι όμως με αποκάλεσε με το
όνομά μου όταν με είδε στον δρόμο. Σάστισα.
Έχω την φωτογραφία του στο εικονοστάσι μου.
Τον επικαλούμαι σε κάθε δύσκολη στιγμή της

ζωής μου. Είναι κρίμα που ακόμη δεν έχει γρα-
φτεί κάποιο βιβλίο για την μεγάλη αυτή ασκη-
τική μορφή από την Ρωσική Εκκλησία. Τα θαύ-
ματά του πολυάριθμα, τα έζησα!

ΤΟ ΒΙΒΛΙΟ ΔΙΑΤΙΘΕΤΑΙ ΑΠΟΚΛΕΙΣΤΙΚΑ ΑΠΟ ΤΟ ΒΙΒΛΙΟΠΩΛΕΙΟ ΤΗΣ ΚΥΡΙΑΣ ΚΟΥΛΟΥ ΣΤΟ ΜΑΡΟΥΣΙ, ΒΑΣ. ΣΟΦΙΑΣ 14, ΑΠΕΝΑΝΤΙ ΑΠΟ ΤΟ ΔΗΜΑΡΧΕΙΟ  ΑΠΟ 24 ΑΥΓΟΥΣΤΟΥ, ΤΗΛ 2108028705

Το ρούχο της Φθοράς στο Μονόκλ

Σοφία Κιόρογλου | Το ρούχο της φθοράς

Σοφία Κιόρογλου | Το ρούχο της φθοράς

Βλεπόμαστε πρόσωπο με πρόσωπο
Κάθε κίνηση και αγχωμένη ανάσα
είναι ξεκάθαρη για Εσένα, τον Καρδιογνώστη

Σαν ξεθαρρεύω λιγάκι με τους λογισμούς
νιώθω να παλεύω με λέοντες, έτοιμους να με κατασπαράξουν
Λίγη ταπείνωση χρειάζεται αλλά που να βρω το κουράγιο;

Ο έπαινος έχει γίνει ένα με τη σάρκα μου
που τρέφεται από το νοσηρό συναίσθημα
Αναρωτιέμαι σε ποιον κόσμο θα βρίσκομαι μετά το χειροκρότημα…

Recent Honors
Congratulations to Gary Beck. His poetry collection Expectations was released in April in print and e-book editions by Wordcatcher Publishing, an independent press in Wales. From the book blurb: “His explorations of a ‘bankrupt civilization’ and society’s dependence on the cycle of consumerism make a reflective and at times uncomfortable read. Gary is unafraid to challenge us, our ingrained behaviors and our apathy as a society.” Bill Brocato at the Houston Literary Review says, “His work stirs the emotions.” In other news, Gary’s poetry collection Rude Awakenings was published in April by Winter Goose Press. Paradise Review praises his “imagery and emotion that felt unique yet universal.”

Congratulations to Débora Ewing. Her story “Full Moon New Year” was a finalist in the 47th Jerry Jazz Musician Short Fiction Contest and was published on their website. Visit her website for more of her writing. This thrice-yearly free contest gives prizes up to $100 for short stories that reflect the online journal’s “interests in music, social history, literature, politics, art, film, and theatre, particularly that of the counter-culture of mid-20th century America.” The next deadline will be May 31.

Congratulations to David Michael McNelis. His memoir My Most Wanted Marijuana Mom: Growing Up in a Smuggling Family was recently published by Exposit Books, an independent publisher that “combines popular topics such as true crime with a serious approach.” McNelis’ book describes growing up in the 1970s with family members who went to prison for smuggling marijuana into the US when it was still illegal here.

Congratulations to Sofia Kioroglou. Her debut poetry collection, Literary Journeys to the Holy Land, was published by Gramma Press in affiliation with Promachos, an NGO dedicated to the raising of public awareness about the problems of starving children in Africa and the provision of food supplies. The book is a fusion of poetry and narrative accompanied by pictures from Sinai and Israel. The images and captions transport the reader to the places where Moses received the Ten Commandments and where Jesus walked and was crucified. This edition is in the original Greek; an English version will be published in October.

Congratulations to The Poet Spiel. His poem “Naked Arms” won first prize in the Colorado State Fair 2017 Poetry Competition. He kindly shares it with us here. His book Revealing Self in Pictures and Words, a collection of new and selected paintings and poems, will be released later this year.

Congratulations to Rick Lupert. This month, Rothco Press published his 22nd poetry collection, Beautiful Mistakes, a travelogue of Seattle, Portland, and Twin Peaks. Rick says: “I drink coffee, I have conversations with Alexa, I search for owls in the trees, I have a Doughnut party in the hotel lobby, I dine with friends, and poets, and all is documented in these caffeinated, pie-filled, weird and beautiful poems.” Read sample poems here. Rick will be reading with poets Amber Decker and Alexis Rhone Fancher at 8:00 pm on Friday, June 8, at Beyond Baroque, 681 Venice Boulevard, Venice, CA.

In other news, his story “Wunner If Elvis Got the Gun Instead?” was published in the 2017 Scribes Valley Writing Contest anthology Take a Mind Trip: Book a Fantasy. Mike says: “This story was inspired by a visit I made (at the suggestion of my editor, Jacq Marie Jacq) to the Tupelo Hardware Store where Elvis got his first guitar. According to lore, he came into the store on his 11th birthday to get a bike, but didn’t have enough money. Then he spotted the .22 rifle. When his mama objected, the proprietor, Mr. Bobo, brought out a guitar. My story explores how things might have gone otherwise.”

Absolutely stoked to be a featured poet alongside so many incredible poets! A sincere thank you to Vera Ignatowitsch Managing Editor of Better than Starbucks and Kevin McLaughlin, Susan Ye Laird, Tendai Rinos Mwanaka and Rameeza Nasim for having me aboard!

Read my poem Cattywampus at : Better than Starbucks

The Renga race is on! I will provide the kick off and you are all invited to join in on our Facebook page

Anyone is welcome to join in this creative adventure! I will be marking the kick off of this poetry adventure then join in. When? February 21st is our Kickoff day. Please visit The Idiotic and Feeble Mindeed Poets Page and join in the fun. This is our chance to link us across the planet.

WHAT? There are many ways of doing a RENGA. Since it was through the RENGA that the haiku emerged, ours should be haiku in flavor but without the anxieties of form. There are some who have experience in RENGA and may want to work within a form-that’s ok. But an intuitive 3 line -2 line – 3 line etc is our approach.

 

Message from the Creator of The Idiotic and Feeble minded poets, Vincent Zepp:

HOW? The poem will be written in the “say something” field on THE IDIOTIC AND FEEBLE MINDED POETS FACE BOOK PAGE with everyone having an opportunity to contribute. The poem has to be copy and pasted into the field each time in order to add the next link -thus eliminating the previous entry. We ok so far? If you can’t copy and paste message me and I’ll do it for you. If you can’t message me email me at postpublishingworld@gmail.com The last step would be to post your link in the comments so we know who wrote it. It is quite simple. If Facebook wasn’t so clumsy I’m sure there’d be a better approach.

WHY? There’s no doubt that THE IDIOTIC AND FEEBLE MINDED POETS is the most unique literary page on Facebook. That’s because of the poets and poetry. The RENGA is a chance to link us across the planet. We don’t have the opportunity to sit down for drinks and dinner and readings-this as close as we can get for the time being.

THANKS! We thank you for what will be a creative fun adventure. Feel free to contact us if we can be of help in any way.
