After my death our beloved Church abroad will break three ways ... first the Greeks will leave us as they were never a part of us ... then those who live for this world and its glory will go to Moscow ... what will remain will be those souls faithful to Christ and His Church. ~St. Philaret of NY

I am not normally a huge fan of this youth series from the Greek Archdiocese, largely because of the ecumenical tendency of many of the episodes (be selective folks) but on a subject that I am obviously quite passionate about, this one is pure gold.  The psaltis Dr. Karanos has apparently turned the chanting program around at HCHC into something vibrant, but that is somewhat beside the point, and I solidly appreciate the passion in which the program is presented.
