Finding God in Prayer

Finding God in Prayer


On this ​”​Throwback Thursday​,”​ we have a CRTL​ episode​ from June 4, 2005. The contact information and website mentioned have changed​,​ but the message is​ still​ true.

In this episode, we begin with a discussion on why Orthodox Christians call Mary the Mother of God,​ or God​-​Bearer​,​ Theotokos in Greek. Listen as Fr. Barnabas (Chuck) Powell and Fr. Sp​i​ro Bobotas discuss the importance of her title and reasons we venerate her.

​You will also hear Emmy Louvaris and Fr. Chris Metropulos interview Fr. Roman Braga of Blessed Memory. They discuss the need to reestablish consistent prayer, tips to pray without ceasing​,​ and a brief reflection ​on Fr. Roman’s 10 years in a Communist prison including 3 years of solitary confinement. ​He offers advice ​on how you can establish a permanent dialog with God.
