Markers of our way of life

...just as insensibility, callousness and hardness of heart develop as a result of ease, soft living and self-indulgence, so from a way of life marked by self-control and renunciation come contrition of heart and compunction, expelling all bitterness and generating a gentle gladness.  St. Gregory Palamas

I would like to take this opportunity to recommend some videos found on YouTube that are well done and spiritually instructive.  They are dramatized stories in the Russian language with English subtitles, running 20-25 minutes each.  They teach important lessons for every Christian.  Take time to enjoy them as you are able.  Go to YouTube and look up these titles by Pankrestos:

You are Three

The visit of Christ

The prayers that are not heeded

Obedience:  a puzzling command

The wedding shirt

The little oil lamp

There are also some cartoons, two of them with English subtitles—the Archangel Michael and St. Seraphim of Sarov, many others with Greek subtitles
