This is a wonderful video of the late Metropolitan Anthony Bloom on the subject of Sacramental Confession and having a Spiritual Father.

I found it to be refreshing and profound.
Enjoy!

I have to say that Vladyka Anthony is wonderful and I have been so edified by the videos of Vladyka on
http://masarchive.org/Sites/Site/Video.html

His view of ecumenism as rooted in humility and love is outstanding. These videos are truly food for my soul.

Robert,
What an awesome archive of the sermons of Metropolitan Anthony! Thank you for sharing it!

If I remember correctly, the Metropolitan stated that a true Father Confessor is one who walks with you. That should give us great comfort.
