In the two Ancient Faith Radio podcasts below, Orthodox monk, Fr. Seraphim Aldea, of Mull Monastery in western Scotland offers a poignant and insightful—though intentionally unsatisfying—reflection on our unfortunate and anti-Christ reliance on violence in the face of violence. Speaking in the aftermath of the November 2015 Paris attacks, this reflection is raw and to-the-point, saying things without apology even though they can make us feel uncomfortable and evoke angry responses but that many of us nevertheless feel and know in our hearts. And in fact, the second of the two podcasts was produced in response to the hateful and violent comments that Fr. Seraphim endured after his initial podcast.
