Letters to My Children - Final Letter

In these twelve Letters, I have tried to give you the benefit of what I have learned about life and the glory of our Triune God. It took me many years to understand the real purpose of this worldly life that seems to come to an abrupt and unfair end in death, but in fact is one that is eternal. As I told you earlier, my faith in Jesus Christ, and obedience to the teachings and practices of the Orthodox Church, developed over many years. What I have shared does not come from some ideological belief or philosophy, but from a faith in the Gospels and on experience clarified by the teachings of the Church over the last 2000 years.

I know these letters may not have been of much interest to you now, because the worldly life in these days is devoid of true spirituality and filled with so many temptations that pull all of us away from a God-fearing life. I am confident that there will come a time when you will want to go back and read these letters because you received an awakening through a spiritual experience of some kind. God is always present, and, when the time is right, He will poke you in a way you cannot forget. Then you will have a desire to live a true Orthodox life, and you will want to learn more than is contained in these letters and share them with others. Here is the link to all of them:

I love you dearly and pray for your awakening always.
