The Prayer of St. Ephraim - Humility
April 07, 2006 Length: 1:00:01
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.

AFR manages to reflect the light that rings out of the pure Orthodox Faith. I could not pass it without being touched by this light. Thank you!"
