I Catch Up to 2001

My beloved daughter gave me her old iPod when she got a new one. I can’t work to music, so I’ve been using it only when I exercise — but that’s meant a daily lecture on the Fathers. And so far I haven’t paid a penny. I burned through the Louth lectures right away. Then, on iTunes, I found free downloads by John Cavadini, Robert Louis Wilken, Jaroslav Pelikan, John Peter Kenney, and many others. I loaded up, and I haven’t heard even half of the material I found. If you have an iTunes account, it’s really worth your while to go searching after terms like “patristics,” “Christian history,” and “Augustine.”

I just got an awesome (and free) reading of the entire Imitation of Christ online and I LOVE it!
Yes, iPods are good things.

You should try “A Word From the Holy Fathers” by Deacon Matthew Steenberg, the webmaster of monachos.net. You can find it on iTunes in the Ancient Faith Radio section.

You are still one step ahead of me, though — I’ve never even used an iPod!

It brings new temptations, though. I see ads now that I’d never noticed before, like Father Brian Daley’s course on Christian beginnings: http://store.nowyouknowmedia.com/early-church.html

Get thee behind me.

I’m sure you’re already aware, but in case not, check out http://orthodoxsermons.org/ :)

The sermons by Fr. Anthony Messeh are quite enjoyable.

He who prays listens to singing twice!

…or something like that.

On the techno side, isn’t it amusing when our children bequeath us their old, outdated stuff and we’re like kids on Christmas morning? I can relate ….
