"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.
