More on Dispassion

Fr. Richard explains that "suffering" is slavery to something outside ourselves, and that "dispassion" is a lack of suffering—the quality of not being enslaved to external impulses.
"A thousand thanks for the incredible, edifying, encouraging ministry of AFR. We are in the far north of Scotland, which is extremely secular and can be quite hard going for Christians trying to live their faith minute by minute. We have no church, and the nearest priest is five hours away. Once a month, there is a Divine Liturgy an hour from us, in an ecumenical church building attached to an old hospital. AFR supports our daily practice of our faith and enriches it immensely."
