The Prayer of St. Ephraim - Humility
April 07, 2006 Length: 60:01
Following Chastity in the the list of virtues in St. Ephraim's prayer comes Humility. Reading from the Fathers, we find that humility is not merely a state of mind, but a mystery that comes about as the result of labors of the soul and body, mirroring the Incarnation itself - and so it is by nature incomprehensible. We look at humility and its opposite - pride and "prelest" to try to gain even just a little more understanding of this virtue and why it is central to our life in Christ.
"I found Orthodoxy and AFR a year ago. They have both had a profound effect on my life. After 30 years as a Mormon, I have found the church Christ left on earth for us. It's very exciting, but at 60 I wish I had not wasted all those years on the wrong road. God willing, I am looking forward to many years as an Orthdox believer!!"
