In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit: one God. [Glory to him.]

Power and pity, combined in the awe-inspiring authority of our Savior that you heard about in the gospel lesson. Our Savior stood amongst men and gazed into their hearts. He knew the faith-filled intentions of the paralytic and his friends, and he knew the evil thoughts that were passing through the minds of the Pharisees and the Jewish rulers who refused to accept his authority. He is the One before whom all things are opened and exposed, the One to whom we must give account, St. Paul says to the Hebrews. “Before his eyes, all things are…

Hello. This is Fr. Michael Gillis, and we’re Praying in the Rain. My podcast today is called “St. Isaac, Deacons, and Eating Away at Gehenna.” I’m always happy when I can throw in some 19th century British literature. It’s kind of one of the hobbies I enjoy indulging in. So let’s get started.

It’s difficult for some of us who were raised on a theology of substitutionary atonement, those of us Protestant converts to holy Orthodoxy, it is difficult for some of us to accept that our final judgment will involve anything more than the forgiveness of sins.

Why should we today be interested in how these thousands of people lived holy lives so many hundreds or thousands of years ago?
