March 15, 2009 Length: 16:01
The New Testament Decalogue of St Gregory Palamas - who is commemorated during this third week in Great Lent - contains precious testimony to the use of icons in prayer, and the manner in which they bring the heart into a new relationship of love. In our broadcast this week, Fr. Dcn. Matthew explores St Gregory's words, and the pastoral dimension of the Church's iconic tradition.
