Interview with Metropolitan JOSEPH: Life, Vision and Hope
In a more than two-hour interview, His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America sits down for an in-depth, one-on-one chat with Antiochian Archpriest and popular podcaster and author Fr. Andrew Stephen Damick.
In commenting on the interview, Fr. Andrew had this to say: "It was of course a great privilege to be able to interview His Eminence. His time is so precious that these opportunities are rare. I very much enjoyed my time with him, getting to know him better as a man and bishop, talking about the kinds of things that don't make it into official biographies. My hope is that everyone will give attention to this wonderful inside look into the life and hopes of one of the key leaders in the Orthodox Church here in North America." In this wide-ranging interview, Metropolitan Joseph discusses his life, those who influenced him in the course of his ministry, his hopes for the future, and advice that he has for both clergy and laity. He even describes an encounter with St. Paisios the Athonite and what the saint told him in a time of struggle. At the close of the interview, His Eminence said, "I wish all our people to listen to this message, because it comes from the one who loves them and the one who is ready to serve them and the one who always is praying for them."
The interview is sponsored by Ancient Faith Ministries, a department of the Antiochian Archdiocese, and is available in both podcast and video form. Listen to the podcast on Ancient Faith Radio.
Historic Documentary of Holy Week and Pascha
On Sunday, April 16, 1961, the CBS Television Network showcased the richness of Holy Week services in the Orthodox Church featuring one of our Antiochian parishes. "Lamp Unto My Feet" filmed at St. George Church of Paterson (now Little Falls), New Jersey and captured the procession of the Cross on Holy Thursday, the Lamentations of Holy Friday, and the Resurrection (Rush) and Orthros Services of All-holy Pascha.
The weekly religious program (running from 1948-79) also captured the clarion voice of our primate at that time, Metropolitan Antony Bashir (1898-1966) of thrice-blessed memory and eternal repose. Now, for the first time, generations of Orthodox Christians will hear the voice of this important twentieth-century leader and pioneer of the Church in North America. They will also hear the voices of two long-time priests of the Archdiocese: Fr. Michael Simon, at that time pastor of St. George Church, and Fr. Gabriel Ashie, at that time pastor of St. Anthony Church in Englewood (now Bergenfield), New Jersey."Lamp Unto My Feet" also credits Professor Michael Hilko, a groundbreaking composer of sacred music in the Archdiocese; and Mrs. Christine Lynch, who guided CBS in the television production and led the choir. She reposed in the Lord in 2016 after decades of service to St. George Church and the Archdiocese.
Envisioning the Kingdom
Khouria Krista West speaks at the 9th Annual Lenten Retreat held at the Holy Virgin Cathedral in San Francisco, CA in May of 2016. The topic is Envisioning the Kingdom: The Why and How of Beauty in the Church.
Beauty is not far from its Creator and it is recognized by man to the degree of his inner purity. It is pursued in unhurried silence.
