The Savour of Orthodoxy: A Christmas Reading from Photios Kontoglou
January 03, 2011 Length: 16:04
In this program, Fr. Peter stresses the need for each believer to delve ever deeper into the experience of the Grace of God—to participate firsthand in the life of the Church, thus knowing experientially the savour of Orthodoxy. In order to better communicate this, he has translated a portion of a chapter from a book by Photios Kontoglou, renowned iconographer and ecclesiastical writer from Greece (1895-1965) on "The Holy Days of Christmas."
"I don't think it's a stretch to say that I've spent HUNDREDS of hours listening to AFR over the past 8-9 months. I have not had an AFR-free commute for many, many months! To say that AFR has played a crucial role in my journey would be an understatement. Without the ministry of AFR, it's safe to say that I would not have the clarity and confidence to move forward into the next phase of the journey that God has for me. I just want you all to know—the AFR folks on the ground and the Priests, Monastics, and Laypeople that provide content for the podcasts—that you're doing a great, God-ordained work that is having an amazing impact."
