During a recent visit to St. John's Monastery, Steve recorded and interview with Abbot Jonah about the Jesus Prayer. In part one, Fr. Jonah discusses the Orthodox view of prayer that goes beyond "requests and praise." He also discusses the practice of the Jesus Prayer and the transformation of the human being which is a difficult and sometimes painful experience.
"Generally we have quiet in our home, no TV, very little radio, however, when I am doing housework and need a nudge to keep thoughts less worldly I so appreciate AFR. It is also a wonderful tool I recommend it to others who are interested in the faith--you have a podcast for everything!"
