The Gift of Being Ordinary – Part 1

In our quest to get to the heart of Christian life we need to become ordinary. Really? What does it mean to be ordinary? What is the sin of pride? In a conversation with Fr. Anthony Tandilyan, Dr. Kyriaki gives us profound insights in what it means to be ordinary as she clears the pathway to humility and authentic love. Dr. Kyriaki Karidoyanes FitzGerald is a theologian, educator and licensed psychologist and serves as Adjunct Professor in Theology at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology. The author of the book, Women Deacons in the Orthodox Church: Called to Holiness and Ministry, she is recognized as a leading expert in the subject of Orthodox deacons and the theology of ministry more generally. Her other writing includes Persons in Communion: A Theology of Authentic Relationships, Living Faithfully: The Beatitudes in Everyday Life (co-authored with Fr. Thomas FitzGerald), numerous articles in Orthodox and other academic journals, and the editor of and contributor to Encountering Women of Faith, St. Catherine’s Vision Collection, Vol. 1 and 2.
