Desert Spirituality for City Folks - Part 10 - Getting Ready for Battle
February 16, 2008 Length: 11:26
Get Ready for Battle! In this podcast Professor Nassif asks the monks "What's the right way, and the wrong way, to fight against the world, the flesh and the devil?" The desert Fathers teach us that before we get into this spiritual arena, we should expect discomfort, and that the true meaning of perfection in the Christian life does not look for "flawlessness" but "change." The monks counsel us on how to prepare our hearts before engaging in the hard work of holiness.
"I wanted to briefly say thank you for the ministry and Christian witness you provide through AFR on a daily basis. The music and podcasts you provide expose so many to Orthodox faith and worship and make available vital educational resources to the faithful. My Orthodox faith and walk with Christ have certainly been strengthened in the last few years through the ministry of AFR, and for that I am grateful."
