In this four lecture series Mother Melania sets forth the traditional Greek Christian understanding of the three powers of the soul, and explains how to rightly utilize and direct these powers. She expounds upon them, and how they are to be used to cultivate virtue and conquer the principal vices by gleaning edifying and illustrative examples of Christian living from the lives of the Holy Foremost of the Apostles, Peter and Paul. Dedicating one lecture to each Apostle, Mother Melania concludes with reflections on Christian leadership drawn from the lives of the Apostles. These edifying homilies entitled respectively:
* The Powers of the Soul and the Eight Principal Passions
* Practical Lessons from the Life of St. Peter
* Practical Lessons from the Life of St. Paul
* Principles of Christian Leadership from the Lives of Ss. Peter and Paul
These lectures are presented by Patristic Nectar Publications to our customers with the hope that they will provide concrete guidance for developing Christian faith and character.
