Check out our daily livestream on YouTube at "Fr. Anthony Perkins"! A Meditation on St. John’s “The Ladder of Divine Ascent” What is Orthodox Tradition? Why is it important for us to immerse ourselves in the worship and rigors of Orthodoxy? At the visible level, one that can be observed and studied by scientists, tradition is the accumulation of rituals and ideas that are directed towards a purpose.

In this homily given on the Sunday of Orthodoxy, Fr.

As I told the people at the end of the liturgy, this homily was about two hours of editing away from being worthwhile!  It's great being in a PhD program, etc., but it leaves much time than I'm used to (and need) to prepare.  It's usually okay, but this day I tried out a couple points that weren't quite ready.

On the Sunday after Nativity we commemorate the slaughter of the innocents by Herod.  Fr. Anthony challenges us to think - and repent of - the sacrifices we would be willing to sacrifice for our own sin.  Oh, and yes, he really did blank on the place of Christ's birth (bless his heart)!  He forgot his recorder, so this was recorded on his new iPhone SE.
