NOW AVAILABLE: New Issue of The Handmaiden Journal

Conciliar Press has released a new issue of its quarterly women's journal, The Handmaiden.

The summer 2008 issue of The Handmaiden explores the mystery of today’s miracles, some that we encounter close to home, and others that we purposefully travel to as pilgrims, looking for deeper personal insight and inspiration. The issue includes the features "Finding a Miracle" by Paul D. Sidebottom; "My Encounter with Saint Xenia" by Jill Wallerstedt; "Our Lady of Cicero: Two Young Priests Share their Experience with a Weeping Icon" by Heather Zydek; and "A Pilgrimage of a Lifetime" by Archpriest John Bethancourt. The issue also features a host of regular columns, including A Word from the Editor, The Orthodox Home, Culture Currents, Close to Home, Verses of Praise, The Orthodox Kitchen, Women Making a Difference, Books to Treasure and a specially-themed Woman-to-Woman column for which we asked our readers to share their experiences of pilgrimages.

For more than a decade, The Handmaiden, published as a 64-page journal, has been serving Orthodox women by offering them fresh content to inspire and illumine their hearts. With the Handmaiden of the Lord, the Holy Theotokos, as its guide, The Handmaiden strives to be a beacon of light, a place where Orthodox Christian women and others who are interested in Orthodox life and spirituality can come together to learn, share, relate, and grow. Join us as part of The Handmaiden community, as we prayerfully and joyfully struggle to become the women of God we long to be.
