Richard elaborates on the concept of “harlotry” in the Book of the Twelve, explaining how this metaphor is used to highlight the disloyalty and ingratitude of God’s people. He and Fr. Marc discuss how Israel turns their back on the Lord’s generosity, repeatedly seeking self-justification and security from others. In this way, Israel insults God, not only to their own detriment but at the expense of those in need. This week’s episode concludes with a special tribute to Metropolitan Philip Saliba, who fell asleep in the Lord on March 19, 2014.
