All to No Purpose Have I Left My True Home
March 01, 2013 Length: 15:23
The second of the pre-Lenten Sundays draws our attention to the Prodigal Son and his departure—and return—to his father’s house. In this week’s episode, Archimandrite Irenei examines the Fathers’ testimony to this event, found in the Church’s hymns, and examines the nature of sin as exile in every Christian’s life.
"I'm a seeker. I've found myself feeling restless in my Protestant church, wondering if I can go deeper in my daily worship, wondering what came before the Reformation. I stumbled onto the Orthodox Church a couple of years ago, and my soul is rejoicing. Thank you for this site which allows me access to the church at least in part. I am praying that my husband will allow me to one day visit our local church."
