The Divine Lantern

By Divine Lantern Publications
As darkness may press against the flock, and the silence of the world deflects hope, cries the voice of a loving Shepherd "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

This is the Divine Lantern.

Under the blessing of His Eminence Metropolitan Basilios, the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese presents a podcast to ‘educate... empower... and enrich’ the lives of our listeners with the illumination by Truth, and hope in a life in Christ.
