Father Gerasimos discusses the superstitions, old wives tales, myths and legends that are often confused with the Orthodox Faith. Father drives the message that blurring the lines with faith and superstition can not only distort the faith, but convince us that there is a better shield, other than the closeness of Christ that is cultivated through prayer and a sacramental life.
