The Real God Before You
On the second Sunday of Lent, the Orthodox Church celebrates St. Gregory of Palamas, a 14th-century bishop of Thessaloniki. St. Gregory taught that God is truly present in the world, especially through silent prayer. Also on this Sunday, the Orthodox Church also reads the Gospel passage about the paralytic who is lowered through the roof of a house so that Jesus can forgive his sins. But, what does the celebration of St. Gregory have to do with this paralytic? As we’ll see in today’s episode, walking the Way is not only about understanding the connection between the two, but it's about living in trust.
