The Best of The Word

The Word magazine is a beloved ministry of our Archdiocese, founded in Arabic in 1905 by St. Raphael of Brooklyn and in 1957 made an English language publication by Metropolitan Antony Bashir. At The Best of The Word, you'll find thought-provoking articles that share the blessed work being done in the Antiochian Archdiocese, and the wisdom of her workers.

Some recently posted recommendations to get you started: Mother Alexandra's The Founding of the Convent of St. Thekla at Antiochian Village; Bishop THOMAS's Care at the End of Life: What Orthodox Christianity Has To Teach; and Roberta Royhab's The Children Are Not Afraid.
