Mystics and Wonderworkers
September 18, 2013 Length: 17:16
Frederica explains that whereas other Christian traditions have mystics, people devoted to the contemplative life alone, the Orthodox Church has wonderworkers, saints who are contemplative, yes, but also very active in the lives of their neighbors.
"It has made a huge difference in my life. I was born an Orthodox Christian and thought I was fairly faithful. Once I started listening to the various podcasts, I began to have a deeper understanding of the faith and have been learning the difference between faith and ethnic traditions that sometimes are taught as being faith."
