The Great Feasts
June 18, 2006 Length: 59:40
Steve and Bill finish the mini-series on the liturgical prayer life of the Church. For all the teaching and talk about fasting on the program, the Church's liturgical calendar really focuses on the 12 Great Feasts and fasting is our preparation for the Feasts of the Church. In the third segment of the program, Steve and Bill tag team wrestle a glossary of liturgical terms and show once again that two lightweights are no match for the 2000 year old Tradition. They deftly handle the Troparion, they almost pin down the Kontakion, but the Canons and Exapostilarion finally throw them. The Church's liturgical terms win by a unanimous decision. A rematch may be scheduled in the future.
"For a Catholic, there is no other online resource I have heard of or seen or used that unfolds and explains the beauty and the depth of the Orthodox faith so extensively as AFR. So many of my misconceptions are being laid to rest, and there are so many other things I have begun to discover and appreciate about the holy Orthodox faith. Thanks, AFR, and God bless for all the effort."
