"The Monastery Trapeza" Podcast Launches on Ancient Faith

May 17, 2019 2 Comments

The monastery has launched a new podcast through Ancient Faith Ministries!

"The Monastery Trapeza" features weekly highlights from the spiritual readings that are customarily read aloud during the brotherhood's meals—lives of saints, patristic homilies and spiritual articles timed according to the Church’s liturgical year.

Several episodes have aired already, the most recent of which is a homily by St. Nikolai Velimirovich for the Sunday of the Myrrh-bearers.

To listen to the podcast, visit our page on the Ancient Faith website, or subscribe through the iTunes store.

Listeners can contact trapeza@ancientfaith.com to provide feedback or ideas for the podcast.

It is our hope that you will be edified by these writings as much as we are.

Fathers may our God bless this ministry, it is so nice to hear the trapeza when one is 4 hours away (truthfully a short distance). I love what I have heard so far.

America is a nation in crisis. We have been facing a political crisis of ever-deepening division and widespread distrust in our own leaders for many, many years now. With the emergence of the COVID-19, we are being confronted with a public health crisis of a magnitude unparalleled in living memory. This in turn has precipitated an economic crisis of massive proportions, one which will almost certainly rival (if not exceed) the Great Depression itself.

With the joy of God’s Kingdom, as we are "divinely glad, for Christ is risen" (from the Paschal Canon), I offer my Paschal greeting to all: both to those who have successfully completed the reclusion of their quarantine, celebrating now in the churches and communing of Christ’s Holy Mysteries; and also to those who yet abide in the desert of solitude and various restrictions, dedicating the better portion of their time to private prayer, spiritually beneficial reading, and interaction with loved ones. May the former and the latter both, in the words of St. John Chrysostom, "honor the day," receiving in their hearts the riches of God’s goodness!
