Weekly sermons from All Saints Antiochian Orthodox Church in Chicago, IL, preached by Fr. Pat Reardon. Brought to you by Ancient Faith Radio.
Life, Death, and Hope
We bear within our very flesh the hope of which the Apostle Paul speaks; therefore there is going to be something very fleshly about our transformation. Fr. Pat preaches from Colossians 3.
The Event of the Incarnation
Strictly speaking, the Orthodox Church does not celebrate doctrines, it celebrates events. On this homily given on the Sunday before Theophany, Fr Pat considers the event of Jesus's Incarnation.
The Cave, the Calendar, and the Curriculum
The Christian faith is based on an event that took place in a specific place at a specific time in history; God instructs us through history, and we are to be learners. Fr. Pat gave this homily on Christmas Eve several years ago.
For Unto Us a Child is Born
Isaiah's prophetic vision of a Child, a son of David who was to come and Who would be God with us, Immanuel.
A Celebration of Spiritual Warfare
Fr. Pat takes a closer look at the true meaning of Hanukkah.
The Visible Revelation of the Father
The bishops at the Seventh Ecumenical Council reasoned that the legitimacy, indeed, the necessity of icons in the church was an organic inference from the thesis that God became visible in the Man Jesus of Nazareth. Fr. Pat gave this homily on The Sunday of Orthodoxy, 2020.
