Spirituality and Popular Culture by Emmanuel Gergis (Washington DC)

“Popular culture is a very dangerous thing, especially when it has to do with our faith… It’s one thing to advertise for me buying a jacket on TV and, being satisfied with the advertisement, I go and buy it. It’s another thing to advertise something on TV about my soul and about my relationship with God and for me to buy it just based on this commercial is a grave mistake.”
- Emmanuel Gergis, Lecturer at Antiochian House of Studies and St Cyril Society
