How is Marriage Different?

Fr. Brendan Pelphrey speaks with Fr. Chris about marriage this week. How does it differ from a partnership or simply a love between two people? What is the Church’s view on marriages outside the Church, both historically and in the modern era? What is the primary purpose of marriage according to our Orthodox understanding, and how should that purpose define our daily lives? Hear the answers to these questions and more! And be sure to stay tuned to the end of the program, where you’ll hear Mark Gruin from IOCC talk about their relief efforts since the Balkan flooding.

IT’S TIME TO SPEAK OUT!

Across the world, Christians are suffering for their faith. Attacked by ISIS and harangued by extremism, Christianity is in danger of being eradicated in the lands of its birth. Yet very few people in the West seem to care — or even know!

That’s why we at OCN believe it’s time to speak out. We’ve covered this issue for a long time, but want to dedicate even more resources to raising awareness and spurring action, using our massive social media following. We reach MILLIONS of people per week, and it’s time for collective action.

Please support this effort by giving to our “10 cent per day” campaign. 100% of your gift will go directly to expanding this ministry, 0% to overhead. Together, we can and will make a difference!

— Fr. Christopher T. Metropulos, OCN Executive Director
