Episode 20
July 20th, 2020

Τhe Sunday of the Holy Fathers and the Meaning of Heresy

A pernicious and dangerous re-definition of heresy is spreading among theologians and hierarchs which blurs the boundaries of Orthodoxy and heresy and thus blocks the path of return and salvation for many. In this podcast Fr. Peter examines the teaching of the Holy Fathers on heresy, heretics, and the key differences, including, first of all, the therapeutic methodology in the Church, the fruit of which, in every age, are the Saints and Holy Fathers.
