January 07, 2011 Length: 18:34
In this postcard, Father Peter speaks to us just after a visit to an ailing parishoner, whose soul may be on the verge of departing this life. Father Peter relates to us his thoughts on why we suffer, how we should understand suffering, how important it is for us to obtain self-knowledge before the approach of death, and what is the deeper meaning of faith.
"I converted to the Eastern Church from the Baptist faith when I was 15 years old. I am now 63, a disabled Vietnam Veteran, and I listen to AFR every day. It is so nice to listen to the Liturgy and let God come into my heart and soul. I thank you for making that possible for me. God Bless You."
