I don’t think anyone has ever considered selfishness or cowardice to be something good. People do not consider it a good thing to be horrible to people who are good to you, whatever your religious belief and whatever age you live in, whichever…

We have been reflecting on Ancient Faith Radio and these podcasts about the Bible and about reading the Bible and about understanding the Bible. And of course we like to quote St. Hilary of Poitiers, a wonderful rhyming sentence in Latin: “Non in legendo, sed in intelligendo,” he said: approaching the Scripture, it’s not in the reading; it’s in the understanding. It is in the interpretation of the Scripture, particularly as the Scripture has to do with God’s saving activities of his creation that he made in the beginning, particularly the salvation and glorification of human beings, and also how the Old…

The Christian Church celebrates the event of Christ’s entry into Jerusalem on the Sunday before the great celebration of the Lord’s Resurrection from the dead, the holy Pascha.
