Going up to Jerusalem, to the Glory of the Lord
April 14, 2011 Length: 28:18
In this postcard, Fr. Peter stops to examine the previous Sunday's gospel, through which the Church is preparing us to accept the glory of the Lord, His crucifixion, by directing us to divest ourselves of the desire to seek worldly glory. Fr. Peter explains how worldliness, worldly glory, or secularization, is the spirit of the evil one, of the Antichrist, and our mortal enemy as Christians, who want to be glorified with the Lord. He also touches upon our freedom in Christ, the wrong teaching of predestination, those who have true authority in the Church, and more.
"As an Eastern Catholic (Melkite), I just wanted to say how much I appreciate your site. The music is beautiful and uplifting, and the messages are food for my soul. Though we are still separated, I still feel a deep love and affection for my Orthodox brothers and sisters. May our Blessed Lord reconcile us as one Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church as a testimony to a world that is perishing and needs us! Thanks again!"
