February 16, 2008 Length: 11:26
Get Ready for Battle! In this podcast Professor Nassif asks the monks "What's the right way, and the wrong way, to fight against the world, the flesh and the devil?" The desert Fathers teach us that before we get into this spiritual arena, we should expect discomfort, and that the true meaning of perfection in the Christian life does not look for "flawlessness" but "change." The monks counsel us on how to prepare our hearts before engaging in the hard work of holiness.
"I love your radio station so much. It has helped me a lot in my journey to become baptized and truly Orthodox. Your chants are uplifting, and your talks inspiring and thoughtful. You have helped to strengthen my faith, and I thank you very much. May God bless you and remember you in His Kingdom. "
