Frederica Mathewes-Green has published a nice essay on the value of Great Lent.
Ms. Mathewes-Green has written much on Eastern Christian spirituality and the Orthodox Church. Her husband, Fr. Gregory Mathewes-Green, is an Orthodox priest. Among her works are:
The Illumined Heart: Capture the Vibrant Faith of Ancient Christians
The Jesus Prayer: The Ancient Desert Prayer That Tunes the Heart to God
At the Corner of East and Now: A Modern Life in Ancient Christian Orthodoxy; and
The Open Door: Entering the Sactuary of Icons and Prayer
Thank you to Andrew Mitry for sending the article.
