St. Cyprian on Cain, Abel, and True Self-Sacrifice
September 27, 2013 Length: 15:42
What are we to make of the Genesis account of Cain and Abel? In this broadcast, Archimandrite Irenei 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.
