Relics, Part One
October 19, 2007 Length: 1:01:38
After being AWOL for several months, we're actually back in the Basement Catacomb Studio recording new material! In the first of a several part series on "relics," we discuss the universal human behavior of collecting "memorabilia" of significant people, the universal human struggle to define the relationship between the spiritual and material worlds, and the significance of Christian relics based on the Incarnation of Christ and the Orthodox view of salvation.
"I have been listening to AFR for a couple of years now. I was introduced to it by an Eastern Rite Catholic deacon. These podcasts have been invaluable. I began to hunger, thirst, and long after Holy Orthodoxy. On Christmas Eve of this year, I was chrismated into the Orthodox faith—my husband with me! Truly a dream come true! We are both Americans who live in the Middle East, and I am grateful for this website which provides us with so much spiritual nourishment so that we can be a light unto others. Thank you!"
