Taming the Passions: The Orthodox Lifestyle of Freedom
The Orthodox Faith offers us a way of life that makes our desires our servants rather than our masters. With our passions tamed and useful, we become the people God has created us to be: Like Him and free to enjoy Him forever. This Orthodox way of life is a lifelong spiritual journey that protects us from the intoxicating lies that so easily entangle us and blind us to God’s love and mercy.
