In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen. Well, I’d better start recording these, because if I don’t do it now, I probably will never do it. These podcasts have been in the making for six months now. I have this horrible habit of just postponing things, because I am afraid nothing I have to share with you is useful or relevant in any way, but the reality is that ten years after I started my monastic life should have taught me by now that being useful or relevant has nothing to do with what I can offer you. It’s entirely up to our God [who] knows what you need. He simply works through me, regardless…

Committed Christians, as well as, we might say, uncommitted ones, but those who are Christians, and, indeed, many others who are not Christians, are often heard saying this expression: “With God, all things are possible” or “With God, nothing shall be impossible.” It’s important for us to reflect on this expression just to understand what it means, what we’re saying if we say it, what does it entail, because certainly it is a habit, a practice, of Christian people, believing people, to use that expression often and frequently, and even sometimes casually: just say, “Oh, with God, all things are possible.…

Popular New Age thought postulates that everyone has a god within. It’s a pleasant way of saying that we’re all special while making “god” to be rather banal. But there is a clear teaching of classical Christianity regarding Christ within us, and it is essential to our Orthodox way of life. We should not understand our relationship with God to be an external matter, as if we were one individual and God another. Our union with God, birthed in us at holy baptism, is far more profound. In fact, Paul says in 1 Corinthians that “he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with him” (1 Corinthians…

Hello. This is John Maddex. And today on Ancient Faith Radio, we’re bringing you two timely interviews on one subject. The first one features our own Kevin Allen, speaking with Orthodox priest Fr. Patrick Reardon. Fr. Patrick was in the news recently regarding a decision he made to no longer sign marriage licenses in his home state of Illinois. The reason for this is the decision by the state to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Kevin gives us the background on this issue in his opening remarks before the interview.

Today is Thomas Sunday, and Thomas gets a little bit of a bad reputation in modern days, because in Greek—actually, there’s this situation where it’s one of the few times the English actually expresses Thomas’ characteristics better than the Greek, because in Greek we call Thomas “O apistos Thomas,” which actually means “unbelieving Thomas,” but that’s not technically true, because in English we say “Doubting Thomas,” and that’s more of the appropriate word to use, that Thomas was not an atheist. It’s not that he did not believe. He believed in God, and he…
