Strengthens my connection to God

Any time I am going through difficulties, and need encouragement through faith, I listen to Father Anthony. His ability to convey God's love and make sense of a world that seems so chaotic at times brings unbelievable peace.

Mr. Greve ,

Wonderful!

Laid back, spiritually nourishing and practical. Fr Anthony hits that balance between upholding the vocation of a priest as teacher and example while recognizing himself as a regular guy learing to follow Christ like every other Orthodox. He covers a wide range of issues in both a practical and spiritual way without forcing either one. Great podcast!

Good sermons audio too quiet

I enjoy listening to these homilies, but I can barely hear it. I have to max out the Audio on my phone and car to hear anything. Can you please raise the volume levels before uploading. Thank you God bless
