Transcript Transcript

In the previous episode I quoted St. Isaac the Syrian, who tells us to look for God in our heart. St. Seraphim of Sarov further tells us to pay close attention to what is going on in our heart, and compare it to what we learn from the Church:

He who is traveling the path of heedfulness should not trust only his own heart, but should verify the workings of his heart and his life with the law of God and with the active life of ascetics of piety who have passed through such endeavor. By this means one may the more easily both save oneself from the evil one and more clearly behold the truth.

"My husband and I absolutely love your most enlightening website and are staunch supporters of it. Thus, I often find myself sharing specific podcasts with other Christians. We especially enjoy the Sunday evening live call-in broadcasts and any podcasts that focus on current events such as the tragic events in Syria and Egypt and on the suffering Christians around the world. How informative!"
