Dormition of the Theotokos, Part 2

Listen to this second part of the series on the sermon of Patriarch Modestus on the Dormition of the Theotokos. Orthodox Christians know that great spiritual benefits come to us when we celebrate the feasts of the church, especially the Dormition, the feast that we precede with a 14 day fast and celebrate with truly splendid reverence.

But what, exactly, are the spiritual benefits that the celebration of the Dormition offers us? On Harmony of Thunder we’ll continue our exploration of the Dormition sermon of Patriarch Modestus of Jerusalem in order to uncover his wise and inspiring answers to this question. You don’t want to miss it!”

Greetings in the Lord!

With the support of people like you, the Orthodox Christian Network is making a measurable difference in reaching the younger generations. Here are just a few facts about our ministry’s success:

The Orthodox Christian Network is the largest Orthodox Internet presence in the world—by far! Our programs are shared with 500,000 OCN Facebook fans every day. 74% of them are 35 or younger. 38% are 24 or younger.

Help us take advantage of this tremendous success and expand our ministry over the summer. With one week left, we’ve almost reached our Summer Fundraising Goal! But we need your support TODAY to reach $15,000

Donate to our 10 Cent A Day Campaign and your gift will go toward reaching 10 new people around the world. 100% of your donation goes to mission, with 0% to overhead.

On behalf of all of the Orthodox Christian Network, we thank you for 20 years of support for our beloved ministry.
