Dear Students and Friends,
Here are several helpful podcasts to help you understand and practice prayer, and participate in the Divine Liturgy.
A Personal Prayer Rule: Khouria Frederica Matthewes-Green is back on the show today to talk with us about keeping a personal prayer rule. She’ll offer helpful tips on starting and maintaining a personal prayer rule, as well as some advice on how to build up the whole family’s prayer life. But first Fr. Harry Pappas, Adjunct Professor of Pastoral Theology at St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary, walks us through the Book of Psalms. What are some of the central spiritual teachings? How can we make sense of the violence contained in many Psalms? And how can something written centuries before Jesus’ birth reflect our Christian theology? Listen now.
On Worship in Spirit and Truth: join Dr. Demetrios Katos, as he explores the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, and helps you more fully appreciate what's going on in Church on Sunday morning. Listen now.
