Going up to Jerusalem, to the Glory of the Lord
April 14, 2011 Length: 28:18
In this postcard, Fr. Peter stops to examine the previous Sunday's gospel, through which the Church is preparing us to accept the glory of the Lord, His crucifixion, by directing us to divest ourselves of the desire to seek worldly glory. Fr. Peter explains how worldliness, worldly glory, or secularization, is the spirit of the evil one, of the Antichrist, and our mortal enemy as Christians, who want to be glorified with the Lord. He also touches upon our freedom in Christ, the wrong teaching of predestination, those who have true authority in the Church, and more.
"This is the first time I have missed Easter services for about twenty years, because I am recovering from a foot operation. I wanted to feel I was still taking part in the services and was delighted to find your recordings. One of our priests said you might have them, and lo and behold, it was so. Thank you so much."
