This week, Fr Matthew explores two passages—one by St John of Karpathos, and the other by St Ambrose of Milan—on the nature of the continual falling down and rising up of repentance, examining the question: how is the Christian person to respond to continual failings in his attempts to live a holy life?
"I just had to write and say how much Ancient Faith Radio has meant to me. I don't know yet if my journey ends in Orthodoxy—at least in this life, but much of my heart is with you and I have truly grown because of the work you all do; my family has also grown from me simply parroting all that I hear. Our Bible studies with friends and family have been fueled by notes from such shows as Our Life in Christ and At the Intersection of East and West—we've had to underline previously unknown verses from time to time."
