May 09, 2007 Length: 62:41
We continue the series of interviews with Fr. Jonah Paffhausen. In this program Fr. Jonah discusses monasticism as a response to the Gospel. While monasticism is a specific calling, there is also a foundation of universal principles that all Christians are called to. Steve and Fr. Jonah also discuss the process of becoming a monk, some of the pitfalls of monasticism and some common misconceptions about monks and monasteries.
"As a Swedish “liker of orthodoxy,” Ancient Faith Radio has brought me up-to-date information and relevant programs on the Orthodox life today. In Sweden, the Orthodox Church is merely a church for immigrants, and there isn’t much information and material in Swedish. I especially like the programs on conversion, and people’s stories on that subject."
