Fr. Mina Beshara shares his insights into the traditional Coptic Orthodox beliefs that come from the earliest days of the Christian church. These practices strengthen families and enrich devotion. He talks about praying for your family past and present and laying down all that we have to follow Christ. He also shares the pure interpretation of humility along with the wisdom of St. Anthony and St. Augustine.
