Because I was at the UOL Convention over the weekend, this edition follows a different format: in place of a homily/lesson, I talk about my calling to the priesthood. It also includes an interview with Yuri Hladio, a young Orthodox Christian man from Canada; and the next in Pawlo "Zhitozalenko" Amerikanchuk's series on "Living Green".

In this edition: Stubbornness and even anger can be a virtue, but only if they are used to defend the right thing.

Anthony talks about the goings-on in Woonsocket.
