In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Glory to Jesus Christ! [Glory to him forever!]

You’ve probably seen the commercials on television for Ancestry.com and how people are just putting one name that they want to search for, and then they find other names that are connected to that particular person, and then pretty soon, you’re filling in all the leaves on your genealogical tree. This week, I received a very great gift of news, information that I had not known before. I had asked my father many times, “Tell me about your extended family. Tell me about your father and his family,”…

Very Rev. Dr. Chad Hatfield: I want to welcome all of you to Voices From St. Vladimir’s. We from time to time have the privilege of interviewing one of our authors, a contributor to SVS Press, and today we have with us Fr. Lawrence Farley, a well-known author of many books, and he’s coming to us from St. Herman’s Church in Langley, British Columbia. Father, I am particularly interested in talking about the book that was published with SVS Press under the title of Feminism and Tradition: Quiet Reflections on Ordination and Communion. I would begin by actually asking: Why a book with a title…

The Divine Liturgy and Personal Prayer

We’ve come now to the point where we really want to start speaking about the Divine Liturgy very specifically, very directly, and particularly the Divine Liturgies of Ss. John Chrysostom and Basil the Great, as now celebrated or ought to be celebrated, supposed to be celebrated, in the Orthodox Church. When we think about the Divine Liturgy, which is the formal gathering of the Church of God in Christ, the Church of Christ, in the Spirit, to enter into communion with God as a community and within that community, within that ekklesia, the qahal Israel, the assembly of Israel, to hear the word of God, to proclaim the word…

St. Cyprian on Cain, Abel, and True Self-Sacrifice

I would like to speak today on what is a firm word and yet an important word from our Father among the saints, Cyprian of Carthage, writing from the third century in Africa. In a passage dedicated to the Lord’s prayer, a tract dedicated to the Lord’s prayer, St. Cyprian speaks about the need to forgive, and how this is tied into the need to love, two things that we’ve recently traced out in these broadcasts. However, it’s an interesting passage in the 24th chapter in his treatise on the Lord’s prayer that I would like to examine today.

St. Cyprian comes, as odd as this might sound, looking at the text externally,…

Defeating the Slavery of “Bad Habits”

Today, a few brief words from our Fathers among the saints on the subject of habits, specifically bad habits and the slavery that they impose upon us, and by looking at this slavery of habits, of habituation, to see also what the Fathers have to say about how to overcome them. Every Christian person struggles constantly with the fact that, despite the desire, often very sincere, to live a godly life, to live in a holy way, we find ourselves constantly repeating patterns of sin, patterns of impure thought, of action, of behavior, word, and deed.

Perhaps the verses from the Scriptures which resonate most of all with so many of us are those…
