In this broadcast, Fr. Gabriel offers a survey of materials that open for us the Prayer of the Heart, commonly known as the Jesus Prayer.

"You have been a blessing to me in ways that words cannot possibly explain. For this I'm indebted to you for life already, for in your podcasts you have unlocked the beauty of Orthodox Christianity that has been reflected for over two thousand years.
