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.
"Ancient Faith Radio has had a significant impact on my journey into Orthodoxy. I love the daily readings as well as many of the ongoing podcasts. You have made many of the writings and teachings of the Church Fathers much more accessible. Thank you!"
