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.
"It is such a blessing to be able to listen to chant anytime, as it is not easy to find online. I am a convert who came to Orthodoxy ten years ago. As a working musician, I was drawn immediately to the beauty of chant. I listen to AFR music very often and wanted to thank you for offering that resource. Hope others have commented on the music as well. It is the reason I first listened. I will continue to support and listen to your wonderful station."
