Tending the Garden of our Hearts: Family Meditations for Great Lent is a daily podcast offering readings and stories and lessons for every day of Great Lent and Holy Week. Children are invited to listen with their parents, and to use the questions at the end to start a family conversation on the day’s theme! Families who prefer to read aloud can download the PDF of the day’s reading to print and read at home. More information, including ideas for related crafts and activities, are available at tending-the-garden.com. Presented by Elissa Bjeletich and Kristina Wenger.
On the second Sunday of Lent, we commemorate St. Gregory Palamas. In this episode, we will learn about his life. We will also learn about his devotion to prayer. What is “the Prayer of the Heart"? Who was Barlaam, and how does his interaction with St. Gregory Palamas make this Sunday sometimes considered “the Sunday of Orthodoxy part two”?
