Where is the text of this talk? I do not use YouTube, due to the filthy content of this medium. I’d very much like to read what Fr Peter has to say on this theme!
Please post the text so we can read it!

Archpriest Peter comments on phyletism, but does not take the comment full circle to it's logical conclusion. If priests show caring and kindness to persons, say a westerner who is Orthodox but unprepared to receive the Eucharist, by withholding communion, then wouldn't the inverse also be true? Wouldn't the admittance of communion to someone because of their nationality, though not fully prepared, show disdain for them and lack of discernment of the Holy Spirit?

Anthony -

The ratings on the "artikels" (?) are a way to let the editors know, and other readers know, what people think of the articles in question. If the editors here, for example, post an article by an American priest that seems to be promoting changing the wording of the Divine Services of Holy Week in order to "avoid offending the Jews", then consistent low ratings are a way of alerting the editors that such ideas are not supported by the laity. When you give a high rating to excellent content such as talks by Fr. Peter above, then you send the message that we love this, and would like to see more of it published here. Do you not understand this, komrade?

Hi Mr Morton! Greetings beloved Sir! I have to hold my hand high up to the sky and konfess I am one of those who rates each artikel with a 1. Not because the artikels are all that bad but because the whole concept of giving a facebook "thumbs up" to Orthodox literature is dumb. And worse still when there are voting buttons for artikels about holy people who have just reposed. What are people voting for? Because they're happy someone's just died? All quite strange. Mr Morton.

Axios, Fr Peter! How good to hear an Orthodox lecture laying it out just as it is, not as a hedonist world wishes it were.

Did those who gave a low rating listen to Fr. Heers ? Has ther been a "guilt by association" triggered reaction ? What issue does one have with this talk ? Sincerely asking.
