Rising in Repentance
March 01, 2009 Length: 17:04
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?
"Having grown up in a family that moved around a lot, it can be hard to leave behind my favorite Orthodox hymns from church to church and diocese to diocese—especially the beautiful melodies that distinguish Lent. Now as I am again experiencing Lent in a new town and different church for the first time, it's great to hear some of my favorite Lenten hymns on Ancient Faith. Thank you!!"
