As we all begin the Great Fast of Forty Days in preparation for the celebration of the Resurrection of Our Lord, I would like to draw your attention to a few special products available from Orientale Lumen TeleVision (OLTV).  They either have Lent as their theme, or are spiritually oriented and would be appropriate material for personal reflections during this period of renewal.
They include:
MK09DV: The Holy Icon:  A Door into Eternity.  An introduction to the symbols, purpose, theology, and spirituality of icons for the lay person. Metropolitan Kallistos (Ware) of Diokleia.  1 disk DVD
AE17: Preparation for the Great Fast (6 disks) Lectures about preparation for Lent by Metropolitan Kallistos of Diokleia
AE16: Liturgy: Model of Prayer—Icon of Life (6 disks) Spiritual reflections by Archimandrite Robert Taft on liturgy and prayer
AE25: The Mystery of the Church (6 disks) Lectures on Church ecclesiology by Metropolitan Kallistos (Ware) of Diokliea

The prayer service, reception and Ecumenism Lecture by Metropolitan Kallistos at The Catholic University of America scheduled for Tuesday, February 9, has been postponed one week until Tuesday, February 16 because of weather conditions in Washington, DC.  The same times — prayer at 4:30, reception at 5:30, lecture at 6:30 — will be followed starting in the Chapel at Caldwell Hall.  Please pass the word to anyone who was planning to attend.
