Fr. Josiah Trenham
A close examination of the therapeutic nature of the Church as a spiritual hospital providing a means for acquiring divine power and grace for the healing of diseases of soul and body. Topics include: Jesus Christ as Healer; sin as a disease; the Church as a spiritual hospital; the Spiritual Father as a physician of the soul; and the diagnosis and recommended treatment plan for six common spiritual pathologies - self-love, anger, gluttony, despondency, avarice, and pride. In this series Holy Orthodoxy is revealed for what it is at its heart: a means for acquiring divine power and grace for the healing of our diseases of soul and body, and not a barren ideology.
