"I am a college student raised in the Roman Catholic faith. I am currently a catechumen preparing to receive chrismation in the OCA. Ancient Faith Radio has been such a guide to me in my studies as I continue on the path toward full communion in the Orthodox Church. I look forward each day to utilizing your recorded podcasts as supplements to the great fullness of what we all receive in the Liturgy. As someone who was first drawn to Orthodoxy by its incomparable music, I'd like to express my deep sense of gratitude to you for providing such rich selections from the music of the Church. Truly, it speaks to the soul!"
