Podcast: The Conception of the Theotokos/Christmas and Loss

Joachim and Anna with the Theotokos

Dear Students and Friends,

The Nativity season is a perfect time to reflect on the Theotokos, she who was able to say "yes" to God and to be a perfect example for us of obedience and holiness.

On Come Receive the Light, Fr. Anastasios Kousoulas of St. Anna’s Greek Orthodox Church in Flemington, NJ, discusses the Conception of the Theotokos, a feastday that is celebrated every year on December 9th. Plus, His Grace Bishop John of Worcester talks with Fr. Chris about the challenges of celebrating the Nativity when you've experienced a loss - whether it’s a death, divorce, or other major life change.
