Mary: Image of What We Can Be (Mt 19:16-26; Lk 10:38-42; 11:27-28)
August 15, 2010 Length: 15:33
The readings presented by the Church on this day remind us of the most fundamental teachings about what we believe and who we are called to be as Christians. As we celebrate the Falling Asleep of the Mother of God, Fr Tom tells us that the Virgin Mary is the one who embodies hearing and keeping those most basic teachings.

"I just had to write and say how much Ancient Faith Radio has meant to me. I don't know yet if my journey ends in Orthodoxy—at least in this life, but much of my heart is with you and I have truly grown because of the work you all do; my family has also grown from me simply parroting all that I hear. Our Bible studies with friends and family have been fueled by notes from such shows as Our Life in Christ and At the Intersection of East and West—we've had to underline previously unknown verses from time to time."
