Recovering an authentic understanding of the meaning and purpose of asceticism in the Orthodox Christian life
Wonderful talk. I am a complete failure at any kind of consistency in my spiritual struggle. Thank you for the reminder that it is better to do something small on a daily basis, than something big occasionally - only to be followed by nothing for weeks at a time afterwards. In fact, as this has been a long standing problem for me, I recently bought a 50 knot prayer rope (instead of 100) for this very reason since it only takes 15 minutes to go around it one time, which I should be able to make time for on a daily basis. May our merciful Lord help me!
The audio for this is so corrupted that I cannot understand it. Is there a transcript?? Thank you!!
Thank you for sharing this talk Father. Would you be willing to share the quote from St. Isaac about those on the road to the new city, some just starting out, some a good way along the journey and some even reaching the gates?
