The Orthodox Nationalist: The Orthodox Theology of Pain – TON 112421

Dr Matthew Raphael Johnson brings advice from the sages on how best to cope with our fallen world.

This broadcast brings together the ideas of the great 20th century saints, Seraphim of Vyritsa, Nikon and Raphael of Optina and the great Paisios of Athos.

All of them deal with the central, crushing issue of our lives: being forced to be virtuous in a world dominated by demons.

Living the Orthodox life in a putrid, rancid society is a form of suffering few could have envisaged before and how we react to this agony is the foundation of our salvation.

St. Raphael of Optina stated famously that those who are successful in this life are already abandoned by God. Suffering and depression are the hallmarks of this age.

The great saints of this century, many of whom were tortured to death in the GULag, explain that our salvation comes from the ability to see the hand of God in the chaos.
