St. John of San Francisco
This is a two part reading of the works of St. John of Shanghai and San Francisco.
In part one the saint distills for us the essential eschatological teachings concerning those events that are to unfold just prior to the Return of our Lord Jesus Christ in glory. In part two is an illuminating sermon on the movement of the human soul after death. St. John penetrates the mystery which enshrouds death, avoiding both the Latin error of purgatory on the one hand, and the Protestant error of instantaneous glorification on the other hand. He presents us with a simple explanation of the reason that Orthodox Christians pray for the departed as we do.
