Fr. Tom Soroka - Bright Saturday
May 12, 2014 Length: 9:36Fr. Tom Soroka from St. Nicholas Orthodox Church near Pittsburgh speaks at the Bright Saturday liturgy at the Monastery about where we go from here after the exhaustion and intensity of Holy Week and Bright Week. Each day of Bright week we proclaimed the Resurrection to all creation, as if for each day of creation. St. Thomas Sunday brings the 8th day, the fulfillment of all, when we receive bread and wine in the Kingdom.
"Would like to thank you for the varied programmes you do. I am an Anglican based in Leicester in the UK and came across your station last year on the internet. I listen most days to your music podcast whilst preparing lessons for my students early in the morning, and I listen to your teaching podcasts via my mp3 player at other times. One or two of my students have even commented on the calming presence of the worship. The content is excellent, and the programmes are ministering to my spiritual needs. My appreciation for the Orthodox faith has deepened, and I am particularly enjoying the new series by Abbott Tryphon whose wisdom is down to earth and yet very practical. May God continue to bless your ministry. "
