Mother Magdalena from the Monastery of the Transfiguration in Ellwood City, PA was the speaker at a Fall retreat at St. Ignatius Antiochian Orthodox Church in Franklin, TN. She spoke on prayer and life in the monastery.
I have listened to several of her talks thus far and the one I would like to draw your attention to is the one in the Introduction to the Monastic Life. This is a useful talk even for those not considering a monastic vocation. I have often said we need more Orthodox monastics in America and this talk will give you a little glimpse into the life of one of the oldest woman’s monastery in America.
