What is the goal of the monastic life? Why all that fasting, prayer, silence, meditation and so forth? What's behind it all? Dr. Nassif looks for the answer in a most unexpected place: The inner life of the Holy Trinity! He shares how "love" is the goal of the monastic life-- Love for God and love for neighbor.
"I am a 12-year-old girl who loves AFR. "Readings from Under the Grapevine" is Awesome! My brothers sometimes listen to it, and I listen to it when I can, which lately has been almost all day. We were introduced to an Orthodox church a couple of months ago, and we are working our way into becoming Orthodox Christians. Thank you so much for AFR."
