Published on Dec 4, 2012 (the one year anniversary of my reception into the Orthodox Church), here is a beautiful video of a spiritual talk, “Human Relationships in the Light of Christ”, given by Archimandrite Zacharias on the 8th of November 2012 at the house church of the St Andrew’s Orthodox Christian community in Edinburgh. I was greatly blessed to have been able to worship with this wonderful community during my extraordinary semester studying at the University of Edinburgh.
Archimandrite Zacharias (Zacharou) is a spiritual father at the Monastery of St John the Baptist in Essex, UK. He is a disciple of Elder Sophrony Sakharov, founder of this monastery and one of the most significant Orthodox elders of our times, himself a disciple and biographer of my patron St Silouan the Athonite. Based upon the authentic spiritual legacy of his own spiritual father, Fr Zacharias has written some of the most important books on Christian spirituality available today.
