Many times when we hear the story of the Rich Man and Lazarus in Luke 16.19-31, we get confused about the great chasm between heaven and hell. Most think this is a physical separation, but the Fathers teach us that the chasm is the time of our death. We have until NOW, before we die, to prepare our heart to experience heaven as joy. If we live our life like the rich man, totally self-absorbed and ignoring the needs of others, we will experience heaven as torment and fire. If we can train our hearts to think of the needs of others before ourselves, we will experience heaven as joy and comfort rather than torment and fire. Our chance is NOW!
Due to technical difficulties, this week's episode of Be Transfigured is available audio only. We apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused.
We hope to have the camera back soon.
