Heroes of the Desert: The Lives, Faith, and Teachings of the Church Fathers and Mothers4.5 2 5 Author: Philip G. Bochanski Narrator: Philip G. Bochanski
Beginning in the third century AD, pious men and women journeyed into the Egyptian desert, where they sought to be "alone with God alone." Known as the Desert Fathers and Mothers, they pursued lives of solitude and prayer in order to make offerings of themselves to God. They acquired great insight into the spiritual life, which has been passed down to us in the Sayings of the Desert Fathers.
Now, you can discover the fascinating lives and works of such awe-inspiring figures as St. Antony the Great and St. Mary of Egypt. Through 15 audio lectures, Father Philip G. Bochanski, C.O. leads you into the ascetic world of the desert, a world that has much to teach us about our own time. The teachings of the desert are characterized by their simplicity, practicality, and timelessness. You will see the power of God at work in the lives of ordinary people who trustingly handed their lives over to Him.
By looking at the heroic examples of the Desert Fathers and Mothers, you will gain invaluable insight into your own spiritual life. Embark on this unforgettable spiritual journey today.
