The US Army used to run a promotional slogan saying, “Be all you can be.” The slogan was so popular because it tapped into the human desire to reach our full potential. But what, really, is our full potential?

St. Maximos the Confessor tells us the answer to this question can be found in Christ’s Incarnation:

If it was for us that the Word of God in His Incarnation descended into the lower parts of the earth and ascended above all the heavens, while being Himself perfectly unmoved, He underwent in Himself through the incarnation as man our future destiny. Let the one who is moved by a love of knowledge mystically rejoice in learning of the great destiny which He has promised to those who love the Lord.

"Your radio website is a godsend for me as I feel so exiled in France. I am British, and my Orthodox family here represents my only real human spiritual companionship, aside from my children. Being able to hear your radio programs in my own language is a great aid to my everyday battles, of which there are many. "

Rachel from Angoulême, France
