February 02, 2009 Length: 11:22
This week, Fr Matthew reflects on a writing by St Mark the Monk which shows the true Christian life as one united to the Cross, living in self-abasement and humility to the world, finding in this humiliation the glory of the resurrection.
"I was browsing through this site and came across a podcast about the history of the Orthodox Church in Alaska. It was part of the American Orthodox History podcast, I believe. It caught my eye because I'm an Alaskan Native teen and wanted to know more about how Orthodoxy came to be here. I listened to the three parts. It was very enlightening, and it gave me so many more reasons to be proud as an Orthodox Christian. On top of listening to the music from this site, I will now also listen to the podcasts, because they give me so much insight! Thank you guys for all the amazing content available here."
