Soul Cleansing: The Mystery of Confession

Soul Cleansing: The Mystery of Confession is a five lecture series in which the Holy Sacrament of Confession is examined from many angles: theological and practical. The five lectures are entitled: The Meaning and Institution of Confession; Preparation for Confession: The Importance of Self-Examination; Spiritual Medicine: The Curative Power of Penance; The Father Confessor; and Answers to Objections. Confession regenerates the human soul, and is the milieu in which "the rubber meets the road" in Christian transformation. The confessed life is a life that is filled with the love of God, and the joy of change for the better. The embrace of regular and heart-felt confession can open the door to God's Kingdom for us all.

The Beatitudes

The Beatitudes, or the blessings, pronounced by our Lord Jesus Christ upon His faithful followers constitute the opening salvo in our Savior’s most famous teaching: The Sermon on the Mount. In these eight lectures each beatitude, one by one, is unveiled revealing the universal character of an authentic Christian. Those who inculcate these sacred dispositions manifest the face of Jesus Christ to the world. By incarnating the qualities of Jesus Christ our Savior, that is, poverty of spirit, mourning, gentleness, hunger and thirst for righteousness, mercy, purity of heart, peacemaking, and the joyful acceptance of persecution - believers become the salt of the earth and the light of the world. We hope you will be greatly challenged and inspired by these lessons on authentic Christian character, the kind of character that manifests the presence of the Kingdom of God on the earth.

Jesus Christ the Healer

"Healing Our Diseases: The Church as a Spiritual Hospital" is a ten-part lecture series dedicated to a close examination of the therapeutic nature of the Christian faith according to the teachings of the Holy Scriptures and the Church Fathers. This series begins with a lecture titled "Jesus Christ the Healer" and continues with lectures dedicated to "Sin as a Disease," "The Church as a Spiritual Hospital," and "The Spiritual Father as a Physician of the Soul." The last six lectures are dedicated to the diagnosis and recommended treatment plan for six common spiritual pathologies: self love, anger, gluttony, despondency, avarice, and pride. In this series, Holy Orthodoxy is revealed for what it is at its heart: a means for acquiring divine power and grace for the healing of our diseases of soul and body, and not a barren ideology.
