Come Receive the Light Radio Program
PO BOX 4690

Guest: Nicholai Petro
Topic: The newly elected Patriarch Kirrill
Prof. Nicholai Petro joins Fr. Chris to discuss the recent election and enthronement of Patriarch Kirrill of Moscow. The Patriarch has for many years hosted a television program which reaches millions throughout the vast Russian area which now encompasses his ecclesiastical responsibility. There are many opportunities and challenges awaiting this Hierarch. From everyone at OCN we wish him Many Years! There will also be a short segment from Frederica Mathews-Greene entitled "The Sunday of Orthodoxy".
Guest: Fr. Patrick Reardon
Topic: Who is Jesus?
What is the great mystery of Jesus? Just who is He? Our emphasis is not on the personal salvation of those who hear the message but on the identity of Christ and what he has accomplished for us. Listen in on Fr. Patrick Reardon's discussion of "Who is Jesus?" There will also be a short segment from Paul Lundberg entitled "Memories of a Seminarian's Lent."
Guest: Fr. Steven Ritter
Topic: That Your Joy May Be Full
Fr. Ritter will discuss his new book, "That Your Joy May Be Full, Learning from the Authentic Orthodox Theology of the Spirit." Fr. Steven Ritter has chosen St. Symeon's prayer as a vehicle for contemplating the spiritual path of a Christian in our day and age. On each page of this important book, he ponders various aspects of Orthodox Christian spirituality in light of St. Symeon's profoundly rich pre-Communion prayer. His book is a clarion call to the modern world to seek divine knowledge and wisdom through the most profound kind of theology -"the theology of prayer." A short segment from Fr. Ilya Gotlinsky on Orthodox Tours will also be available this week. Fr. Gotlinsky was born in Riga, Latvia to a Russian Family, Fr. Ilya Gotlinsky (29) was ordained to the Holy Priesthood in 1998 by His Eminence Archbishop Peter of New York and New Jersey. He serves the parishes of the Orthodox Church in America and is currently Rector of the Dormition of the Virgin Mary Orthodox Church in Binghamton, NY.
