August 13, 2012 Length: 34:31
Ancient Faith Radio correspondent Chrysanthe Loizos takes us "behind the scenes" at the Orthodox Monastery of the Transfiguration in Ellwood City, PA. With the blessing of the Abbess, Mother Christophora, Chrysanthe gives us a glimpse into the daily life of the nuns as well as their purpose and goals.
"Excellent radio, dear brothers and sisters in the unchanged Christian faith! Congratulations, and thanks for bringing this beauty and pureness over the ether. I am writing you from Sofia, Bulgaria, where we pride ourselves on keeping the Orthodox faith despite the centuries of Ottoman power here and 50 years of Communism. Actually, it is not clear whether we have kept the Orthodoxy or the Orthodoxy has kept us, but Bulgaria is the oldest state in Europe still existing on the same territory and with the same name. May the Lord bless your undertaking in broadcasting!"
