St. Cyprian on Cain, Abel, and True Self-Sacrifice
November 02, 2009 Length: 15:04
What are we to make of the Genesis account of Cain and Abel? In this broadcast, Fr. Matthew examines a portion of St Cyprian of Carthage’s Treatise on the Lord’s Prayer that shows forth Abel as the first martyr, the example of true self-sacrifice. And it is a lesson with a practical aim: the quenching of anger and hatred, and the discovery of a life offered more wholly to God.
"Thank you so much for all you do. It is immeasurable in terms of sustenance! It is an oasis in the desert when we search for clear understanding and we come up against soundbites and folk tales! May God bless you."
