Fr. Ted speaks at an adult lenten retreat at All Saints Greek Orthodox Church in Toronto, Ontario. This 45 minute discussion will help you prepare for Lent.
Fr Seraphim Holland of St Nicholas Orthodox Church, McKinney Texas. Please check out his church website for more sermons. http://www.orthodox.net/
Since Zaccaeus Sunday is the unofficial beginning of the preparation for Great Lent, he discusses the purpose of Great Lent in the context of the “Zacchaeus moment”.
In this sermon, St. John is writing to his faithful as their bishop and he knows he is communicating to people who are in various stages of growing up. He tells his faithful that, now that the light has come, we are no longer free to pretend we don’t see! And our willingness to admit the light now shines is tied forever to how we treat each other! If someone claims to have “seen the light” but hates his brother is still actually gripped by darkness because when you see the light you don’t stumble anymore!
