Orthodox Life is an English-language web publication of Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville, NY. It began in 1950, first as a translation of the Russian-language Православная Жизнь and later taking on a life of its own as a print periodical journal for Orthodox Christians in the west. We now take this effort online in order to offer a broader range of multimedia content, whilst reaching a wider audience of Orthodox Christians and inquirers seeking the sober reflections of the Orthodox Church that they may know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom Thou hast sent (John 17:3). Orthodox Life will no longer produce bimonthly issues; rather, new content will be posted on a weekly basis utilizing all the best forms of digital media.
Orthodox Life is published with the blessing of His Eminence Metropolitan Hilarion, First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia. Our editor is the Right Rev. Bishop Luke of Syracuse, abbot of Holy Trinity Monastery. Management of the site and content is delegated to the staff of Holy Trinity Publications.
