Armodoxy is the ancient and mystical faith of the Armenian people, polished up for today. Coined by Fr. Vazken Movsesian, the term refers understanding Armenian Orthodoxy as a system to live by today.
For the past six millennia, the Armenian people have inhabited the land at the base of Mt. Ararat, at the “Cradle of Civilization.” Armenia is a war-torn, land-locked country sitting at the crossroads of three continents, Europe, Asia and Africa. Armenians have endured mass destruction of their land, homes and lives by barbarians, conquerors and most recently even experienced Genocide (1915) at the hands of the Ottoman Turks. Despite countless perils, natural disasters, atrocities and suffering, without military strategy or large military presence the Armenian story is one of survival, rebirth and growth. Armodoxy is the mystical and spiritual “weapon” that has delivered this nation and has brought tranquility to the souls of a people. Armodoxy holds the key components of love, faith and hope for all of humanity.
Armodoxy presents the power of the spirit in transforming and establishing peace – a peace for the soul with applications for the world. Armodoxy is the grounding philosophy of the In His Shoes movement and is accessed through the teachings and programs of the organization.
