Heartfelt cooperation with God is the key that unlocks the grace of the Holy Spirit….

How magnified are Thy works, O Lord! How can we more fully cooperate with the process of our purification so as to allow God’s illumination by Grace to act in us more consistently? Thankfully we have Holy Scriptures and the written legacy of our Saints to help us to understand our part in God’s plan for us. This written legacy of our Church, hidden in biographies and other treasured texts of the Church are the Pearls of Great Price I will be using to guide each podcast and our study of our regeneration by Grace.

Quotes from each of my episodes, as well as, a summary of my commentary will be posted on my blog:

Novato Author to Talk about Spiritual Journey to Eastern Orthodox Life

Veronica "Polly" Hughes was disillusioned with Catholicism as a teen and spent 25 years searching for fulfillment.

By Brent Ainsworth

Sacramento Area, CA at St. Anna Greek Orthodox Church in Roseville, California.  Book club event

Join the discussion on Thursday, April 7 at 6:30 p.m.  The Pearl of Great Price by Veronica Hughes.

To attend - email: Margaret Meuller, Director of Adult Religious Education

Veronica's book is available in the Archangel Gabriel Bookstore Sunday, March 20, St. Anna Greek Orthodox Church in Roseville, California.

After many years as an Orthodox Christian, Marin resident Veronica Hughes was asked to write about her unique journey to Orthodoxy.  Raised Roman Catholic in San Francisco's Italian North Beach, she was disillusioned by her church and turned to eastern religions and New Age spirituality to fill her spiritual longing.  Along the way she participated extensively in Yoga, EST, and became a facilitator for channeling in the San Francisco Bay area, a journey that left her spiritually deceived and wounded, but also recognizing God's mercy at key moments in her spiritual journey.  When her husband converted to Orthodoxy he invited her to 'come and see.'  Her journey to Orthodoxy is filled with denial, anger, discovery, recognition and transformation by the hand of God leading her closer to Truth.
