Understanding the Cross of Christ

I don't usually do this here on my Close to Home blog but then again, it's not every day that I am so blown away, I mean really and truly moved to my core, by God's love. For those of you in the midst of Holy Week, I urge you to make a steaming cup of something, sit some place quiet and listen - be encouraged...no, not just encouraged, transformed. For those of you who might be curious about the Orthodox perspective on why Jesus died on the cross, I implore you to do the same! Click HERE to hear Father Thomas Hopko's warm and outstanding, "Understanding the Cross," lecture. I promise, it will be worth your while!

Have you ever had the chance to visit Holy Transfiguration in Ellwood City. Father Hopko is there when he's not giving talks. The nuns are great and it is a WONDERFUL place for families. Hope you can visit sometime. :)

Molly,
Thank you for signposting me towards this lecture. It has changed my life!
Maybe I will write to you in the future, and tell you what has happened...

Love
A fellow pilgrim
