WGR10835 - Byzantine Catholicism and the Call to the Mystical Life, Part 1
Guests: Abbot Nicholas Zachariadis
In his apostolic letter, Light of the East, St. John Paul II exhorts us to look to the Eastern Church of our Catholic tradition to find there the reference point for the baptized.
United as one body, both the Eastern Catholic Church and the Western have much to impart to the other. But, perhaps it is in the great tradition and history of the Eastern Church that all of Christendom can find a wellspring for a deep, intimate encounter with God.
Here to give us greater insight into the Eastern Church and its rich heritage is Abbot Nicholas Zachariadis, founder of Holy Resurrection Monastery in St. Nazianz, Wisconsin, in the Diocese of Green Bay.
