St. Romanos the Melodist on sharing the gift of Orthodoxy with others.
There’s a saying that Orthodox Christianity is the “best-kept secret” in North America. But should our faith be so unknown to the people around us?
St. Romanos the Melodist tells us to imitate St. Photini, the Samartian woman, and share our faith:
You were not worthy of having what you possess and what you keep through the grace of the Giver. Do not hesitate, then, to distribute to those who ask, just as the woman of Samaria once shared. For having drawn from the well by herself, she shared with others what she received. No one asked her, and yet she gave to all ungrudgingly of her free gift.
"Thank you for helping me, helping all of us who listen and are hungrier than we might realize before beginning the feast set out for us. Ancient Faith helps me in two ways: I learn the faith in listening and reading, and I am encouraged to know others are speaking, writing, and clearly teaching the deep truths of the Faith. Blessings to you who write, speak, and sing on Ancient Faith Radio! I keep you on through the night and have been comforted by the Love that is and ever shall be, no matter time or season."
