The Heritage of St. Paul in Orthodox Spirituality - Part 2
July 05, 2009 Length: 27:00
Special extended-length broadcast (26 min.): part 2 of 2.
This week we broadcast the second half of our lecture on the heritage of St Paul in Orthodoxy, given recently in Manchester, UK, to a largely non-Orthodox audience. In this portion, Fr Matthew focuses on St. Paul's injunction to "pray without ceasing," and explores the manner in which this is lived out in the Prayer of the Heart and experiential life of Orthodox Christianity throughout history.
"This station has profoundly changed my life. I have been a Christian for twenty years, but I've been spiritually starving for many of those. Thank you so much for your deep teaching and blessed encouragement. I ask for your prayers -- I am ready to make the leap from our Protestant Church to Orthodoxy, but my husband is not. Until I can regularly attend our local Orthodox parish, AFR is a great comfort and a gift from God."
