Ancient Faith Ministries: Orthodox and Schizophrenic – An Experience of God’s Love

A recent Ancient Faith Ministry podcast, with Dr. Albert Rossi, interviewing Alexis, the person with this illness. My wife and I attended one of his retreats, and I would have to say that it was one of the best retreats in which we participated.  Alexis shares about facing her inner contradictions; she also speaks of how knowing God has given her strength to deal with the rejection she faces because of her illness.

From Alexis:

It’s not a matter of the content of your thoughts; it’s a matter of your love of life, and the love of God …

What the chemistry is is one thing; what the person is is another …

I never gave up; I never stopped receiving the Eucharist. …

God is with those who suffer, and with those who do not suffer. …

One more thing. God is in the illness. He is in the nethermost Hades. He waits to be gracious.

Listen to the entire 21 minute podcast for the full context of her words and Dr. Rossi’s. Words that are spoken are much more powerful than words that are merely written. To access: Orthodox and Schizophrenic – An Experience of God’s Love
