Theoria: Part 1

January 30, 2013 Length: 9:22

La contemplación (theoría), señala la capacidad de "ver más allá" de la apariencia sensible, mediante la comprensión y la experiencia en sí misma del ente, enmarcada en conceptos expresados en lenguaje, mediante fonemas y palabras. En esta primera parte de tres, Padre Joan examina algunos fundamentos de la contemplación cristiana.

Fr Joan begins by introducing basic terminology. In this first of three podcasts, he briefly examines contemplation or theoria, as our capacity to "look beyond" appearance by means of deep understanding and experience of being within the context of church.

"It wasn't until about a little over a year ago that I discovered the existence of the Orthodox Church. I went to Pascha last year and felt like one of the Russian spies, "I did not know whether I was in Heaven or on Earth, but I do know this: God is amongst these people." In the middle of Lent of this year, I came across a link to Ancient Faith Radio that one Orthodox Church had on their website, began listening to Fr. Thomas Hopko, among others, and have gotten hooked, if you will. AFR has allowed for me to look into Orthodoxy as I've investigated many different denominations of Christianity, and grow towards God in ways that actually HAVE been practiced since the days of the Early Church. Thank God and you all (you know who you are) for making this site possible."
