In order to further prepare our thoughts for the coming of Great Lent, the Church presents us with our Lord's description of His return in glory. Fr Thomas reminds us that the Last and Final Day is both terrifying and awesome, dread and joyful, as we prepare now in this life for the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Sunday of the Last Judgment)
"Fr. Hopko's scholarship and spiritual insight have encouraged my wife and me to convert to Orthodoxy. We have especially benefitted from his two episodes on the acquisition of the Holy Spirit and the life of Saint Seraphim. We have listened to these several times and continue to receive blessings each time we listen to them.Thank you and blessings."
