Starting February 9 and running through March 18, Fr Alex will be reading Ascetics in the World, translated in English by Fr. Nicholas Palis, edited by Rev. Theodore Petrides, each Tuesday and Thursday evening at 7pm. Please check the Church Calendar for any scheduling changes. (https://orthodoxfl.com/calendar/)
This inspiring collection from St. Nikodemos the Hagiorite Publication Society features the lives of 45 holy individuals – married and unmarried, lay and clergy. “In this collection are presented biographies of people who lived in various parts of Greece and other countries, and at various times in the Turkish Occupation down to today. They were of different ages, races, and states (clergymen or laypeople, family men or lay monastics). They each had their character and their personal struggle, but they also had some common characteristics between them: strong faith and great love for Christ (from the Prologue).”
We will have a short discussion at the end of each evening’s reading and finish around 8pm.
