Worship in Spirit and Truth
  1. Let Us Love One Another
    In his 84th episode reflecting on the Divine Liturgy, Fr. Tom talks about the Kiss of Peace which takes place after the celebrant declares "Let us love one another that with one mind we may confess."
  2. The Offertory Prayers
    Today Fr. Tom speaks about the importance of the offertory prayers said after the Great Entrance. In particular, he talks about how they are prayed in the Liturgy of St. Basil the Great.
  3. The Great Entrance - Final
    Fr. Tom completes his reflections on the Great Offertory Entrance of the Divine Liturgy.
  4. The Ordination of a Priest
    When the time has come for a priest to be ordained by the Bishop, this is done during the Divine Liturgy. Since Fr. Tom is at the place of the Great Entrance in his reflections on the Divine Liturgy, he takes us through the ordination process.
  5. Remember, O Lord
    As he continues to reflect on the Great Entrance at the Divine Liturgy, Fr. Thomas speaks today about the frequent use of the word "Remember."
