What We Receive is Not our Own: A Testimony of St Macarius the Great
October 26, 2012 Length: 12:22
In a remarkable text by St. Macarius, the Christian is told that if he sees an arrogant man perform miracles, "even raise the dead," he should not follow. This week, Fr. Irenei explores what this message means for the Orthodox Christian, and how the good works of God are to be stored up secretly in the loving Christian heart.
"I really feel dependent on Ancient Faith's music service. And I'm not even an Orthodox Church member. I listen to a wide variety of music on the internet, ranging from r&b classic jamz to various jazz genres to operatic arias, and onwards. But what I listen to most of all by far is Ancient Faith's liturgical music, which I frequently have on for hours at a time."
