Christ is Risen! Part 6 - The Sunday of the Blind Man
May 31, 2008 Length: 10:52
This week marks the end of the post-paschal liturgies. As with the previous five Sundays, this one focuses on the power of the risen Lord to heal our bodies and souls. Dr. Nassif shares a personal experience of his work as a paraprofessional for severely handicapped children. One little girl named Becky made an unforgettable impression on him that goes right to the heart of the story of the blind man. Is God allowing you to suffer for some reason? There's good news on this podcast: Jesus declared, "I am the light of the world! He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."
"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."
