An introduction by Abbot Tryphon

Jesus saves us from a brief life of selfishness to the fullness of life in love for God and our neighbors. We are defined by eternal relationship with God, and we grow closer to Him together in the Church.

This New Year special address to the young adults of the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia, New Zealand, & the Philippines was recorded at the request of the Divine Lantern Podcast and His Eminence Metropolitan Basilios.
