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.
"It is a very important connection with Orthodox Christians for me. I love the Orthodox way of thinking. I don’t know why I am not an Orthodox. Perhaps it is because of my cultural background. The Orthodox way of thinking is to me like a new language. God bless you all."
