Keep in mind that this recording is from the 70's / early 80's.

I can only imagine what Blessed Fr. Seraphim Rose would think about today with narcissistic people and their cell phones, instagram, the internet, constant need for entertainment and attention etc.

It seems prophetic really.

I'm referring to All Of Us (And Us Christians) as a society Collectively.

He also mentions that space aliens are really just demons :

He also mentions Hesychasm. I would imagine that true Hesychasm is almost impossible in today's modern society having to deal with constant distraction and temptation through technology.

IDK what he would say about it, but I think people have gotten a little nuts with their social media and smartphone use etc.

I can't say a lot, though. I hate it, but I'm on it. 🤷‍♀️
