Episode date:
Transcript published:

Fr. Stephen Freeman offers some insight on dealing with the dark thoughts that often fill our minds.

In my previous podcast, I described the origins of the “self-talk” (the logismoi: that’s what the tradition calls them) that haunts our minds with negative chatter.

All is Well

Transcript published:

Dr. Albert Rossi explains how we can live in the awareness that "all is well" in the middle of a troubled world.

In February, I did two podcasts on one day, one before I saw a doctor, one after I saw a doctor. I had a severe cold, and it’s gone. Both podcasts have this gravelly voice. I’m now putting this in the front of this new podcast, newly to be posted, that was made that day, simply because the cold is gone, and I want that very clear. I also want to say that today’s podcast, “All is Well,” is a very delicate, difficult podcast to do and to…

Sunday of St. John of the Ladder

Transcript published:

Deacon Ted Brinegar explores and explains the Gospel for the day in connection with the Ladder of Divine Ascent, St John of Climacus' classic text.

Glory to Jesus Christ! [Glory forever!]

So here we are, entering into the second half of the fast. I don’t know about all of you, but often at this stage of the game, I’m often frustrated with myself a little bit for the lack of progress in working on the things that I want to work on, and we were reminded last week of kind of the pivot point in the Fast, that the way that we do this is to take up our cross, to deny ourselves and follow after him.…
