Understanding the Mechanics of Sin, Necessary to Maintaining Peace in our Relationship with God

Episode date:
Transcript published:

Mother Magdalena: Okay, so the first part of the talk this afternoon was about the understandings that we need, or at least two examples of the understandings that we need, to be in right relationship with Christ. Of course, any of these talks can be a whole book. Now we’re going to turn to what we can actually do to foster this relationship. We talked earlier about prayer being the name of the conversation that we have with Christ, the relationship…

St. Ignatius Women’s Retreat - Living Prayer

Godly Self-Care, Necessary to Maintaining Peace in our Relationship with God

Episode date:
Transcript published:

The first talk that we gave was about prayer as a way of life, which encompasses everything. Prayer is a means to make Christ the center of our lives at all times, no matter how insignificant whatever is happening or how all-encompassing whatever is happening, that he is the center of that. Prayer is knowing we’re never alone and inviting him to be present in the little day-to-day tasks as well as in the times of great happiness and grief.

I had this…

The Work of God’s People

Episode date:
Transcript published:

V. Rev. Fr. Thomas Hopko: It would certainly be the teaching of our Church tradition, from the Bible and the lives of the saints and the whole Church tradition, that every person is created in the image and likeness of God and every person is unique. No two people are the same, though we share exactly the same human nature, but every one is a unique person, and every person has a unique calling from God. Every person has a work to accomplish in his…

I’d like to introduce this afternoon the implication and implications of what we were saying this morning about the conviction about the crucified Christ being raised and glorified and in the kingdom already, in the glory of God the Father already, who has given to us, as he ascends into heaven, the Holy Spirit, his own Spirit, breathed upon us so that we could live and have the power and the grace by faith to live in communion with him and his glory while we’re…

The Word of the Cross - Part 4

Episode date:
Transcript published:

Very Rev. Fr. Thomas Hopko: There can be in my heart on the square yard of turf that I’m standing on, I can make that paradise if I want to, and no one can stop me from doing that. Nobody can stop that if I want it, but it leads to the next point. If you really want it and take responsibility, you must also come to the deepest conclusion in your gut that you can’t do it. In the 12-Step program, that would mean the first step: “I…

The Word of the Cross - Part 3

Episode date:
Transcript published:

What I’d like to do now would be to make some very specific points about taking up the cross, what seems to be really involved in it, if it’s going to work, so that we would come to know for ourselves the love of God and be able ourselves to have insight into the mystery of Christ and the cross, through which we believe our life is fulfilled.

Now, in our own personal lives, every one of us, the crosses… If we spoke about what are the crosses…

Episode date:
Transcript published:

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Your Graces, fellow Fathers and Mothers, beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, we celebrate today the triumph of the true faith over the heresy of iconoclasm and all wrong teachings that befell Christianity: victory proclaimed in Byzantium in the year of 845, Christian Era. Before that, there had been seven ecumenical councils and many local ones, organized through the care of the Church and of the…

Transcript published:

Rev. Dr. Dn. Stephen Muse: [Applause] Thanks. Thank you, Brenda. This is probably, I don’t know—I got involved with OCAMPR, I guess, in ‘92 or ‘93, and from the vantage point here, a couple of decades later, it’s both inspiring and it’s very humbling and refreshing to hear all of the different perspectives which are kind of like a symphony, [in] that there’s an ison that somehow unites all of us,…
