 Dear Students and Friends,

We all know that the Jesus Prayer is awesome...here's some more about it!

What does J.D. Salinger have to do with the Jesus Prayer? Tune in to hear Fr. John McGuckin’s answer! He’ll also talk about the famous collection of spiritual writings called the Philokalia, paying particular attention to how we can apply its intensely spiritual teachings in our daily, modern lives. Finally, we’ll hear why it’s so important to have a spiritual father and how to find one!

John has recommended visit the OCN Amazon store or click on these Amazon links: Sayings of the Desert Fathers; The Way of the Pilgrim; Hymns of Divine Love by St. Symeon the New Theologian; The Ladder of Divine Ascent; The Book of Mystical Chapters; and The Philokalia.
