“Faith Amid Plague:” Ancient Faith Radio Interview with Metropolitan Joseph

Pravmir.com team | 14 May 2020

In a new installment in the Ancient Raith Radio podcast “Ancient Faith Presents,” Metropolitan Joseph is joined by Fr. Andrew Stephen Damick to talk about tough ministry questions amid the COVID-19 pandemic. How do a bishop and his clergy struggle to minister in these conditions? What about new technology? How do we relate to government?

Also joined by Fr. Thomas Zain and Fr. Nicholas Belcher, His Eminence addresses head-on the pain and difficulty we’re all facing, covering practical matters as well as bigger theological and spiritual questions, collected directly from concerned listeners. This in-depth interview wraps up with questions on his time with St. Paisios, communing the non-Orthodox, and the future of monasticism in the Archdiocese.​

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
