Now the Powers of Heaven w/ Fr. James Bankston (GWUL 114)

One of the most beautiful and solemn traditions of the Byzantine Churches during the Great Fast is the Liturgy of the Pre-Sanctified Gifts. Where did this liturgy originate? Why don’t we have regular Divine Liturgies on the weekdays of Lent? Our guest this week, Fr. James Bankston, is offering a series of webinars through God With Us Online about Fr. David Petras’ soon to be released book about the Liturgy of the Pre-Sanctified Gifts, Now the Powers of Heaven. The webinars take place on the first and third Thursdays of February and March, and recordings will be posted for later viewing. You can find out more information and register for the course here:

Oh, and our saint of the week had his vocation delayed TWICE through the prayers of his mother.
