St. Symeon the New Theologian on the “Impossible Beauty” of the Life in Christ
April 05, 2013 Length: 28:31
In this fourth week of the Great Fast, when the Church commemorates the universal adoration of the precious Cross, our broadcast looks at an important passage by St Symeon the New Theologian, on being joined to the suffering Christ and so attaining the "impossible beauty" of His glory. We ask with the saint: how shall we approach such glory?
"Thanks for all the great work. I am part of a small but growing number of Orthodox Christians in the Republic of Ireland. I live in County Kerry in the southwest part of the country, and we have just started a small mission parish in Tralee. Nationally, we are up from 11,000 Orthodox "self identifiers" in the 2006 census to 49,000 in the 2012 census. I love all the programs you broadcast and use the podcasts on my mobile for my long drive to work and back. I do hope that you continue the good work. As we say here in Ireland, "God Bless the Work.""
