December 26, 2008 Length: 28:31
On November 12, 2008, a remarkable thing happened in Pittsburgh, PA. Just 11 days after his consecration as Bishop of Fort Worth and Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of the South, Bishop Jonah was elected Archbishop of Washington and New York and Metropolitan of All American and Canada for the Orthodox Church in America. Kevin Allen was able to spend well over an hour on the phone with His Beatitude Jonah in a candid and fascinating interview that we are bringing you in 2 parts. In this first part we learn about his background, personal interests, conversion to Orthodoxy and the monastic life. Next week we will bring you part 2.
"Ancient Faith Radio was instrumental in my conversion from dark and blind atheism to bright and glorious Orthodoxy. I am soon to be baptized into the Church, and the podcasts and music on AFR have helped guide me to this point. Thank you so much!"
