Fr. Jonah on Why Be a Monk
June 26, 2007 Length: 59:12
In the final interview of the series with Father Jonah, Steve and Bill have a major meltdown during the first segment trying to explain that even though this is the last interview it was really the first one recorded. This program focuses on the Christian life and monasticism as one expression of living out the Gospel of Christ in community. In this program Fr. Jonah discusses his view of our modern culture, the spirit of the age, and marriage and family and its similarities to the monastic community. It serves as a summary of many of the things discussed in the other five programs.
"Thank you very much for the wonderful music and radio that you are broadcasting. I'm a student, and my study and work require my mind to always be occupied. There is barely time for praying. However, because of the orthodox music that you play, I feel peace in my soul and can pray while I'm doing my job or learning. Thank you and God bless you!"
