Orthodox Spirituality by Fr. Dimitru Staniloae - A Commentary

This is an index for my commentary on the presentation of Orthodox Spirituality by Fr. Dimitru Staniloae. For me this has been an incredible learning experience. I can only pray that you also gained insights about your own spiritual journey. I have also included a link to a pdf which contains all of the posts in this series.

  1. Thanks for all these wonderful articles! I have learned and grown while reading them. I downloaded your pdf files as I am sure they are going to help me to continue to grow in Christ. Keep up the work on behalf of the Church and for Christ.

  2. Thanks Daniel for your encouragement.
    May the Lord lead us all to grow in His Kingdom.

  3. Great work. I've learned a lot from your commentary. There is so much I didn't know and I'm a life-long Orthodox Christian. I wish they would teach this stuff in Sunday School.

  4. Thank you Matt. I agree there should be more emphasis put on the long Spiritual Tradition of our faith.
    Next I am going to focus on a slightly different view which places more emphasis on love, the teaching of Elder Porphyrios. Hopefully you will be able to make a synthesis of the two.

  5. Thanks for the informative post in this site. I have learned more from this post topic. Thanks for sharing with us.


  6. Fr Dimitru is a good teacher. Glad you were able to learn from his teachings, Sandra.
