Theological Studies (183)
This Overview of the Canon Law of the Orthodox Catholic Church is a précis of the lessons on Canon Law taught to undergraduate students of the Theological School of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki from 1968; and, after the division of the School into two Departments in 1982, to the undergraduates of the Department of Pastoral and Social Theology. With the passage of time, the content of the lessons underwent adaptations and improvements because of what had in the meantime become His Eminence Panteleimon’s established ecclesiological and canonical views on certain matters of Canon Law. These changes were small but nonetheless of the essence. The present edition does not constitute a complete system of Canon Law, but, as its title declares, is an overview thereof.

The voice of John Zizioulas may turn out to be the fresh voice for which theology and especially ecclesiology have long been waiting. In the context of a complete theology, which includes extended consideration of the major theological topics — the Trinity, Christology, eschatology, ministry, and sacrament, but above all, the Eucharist — the author propounds a fresh understanding, based on the early Fathers and the Orthodox tradition, of the concept of person, and so of the Church itself.

The Lenten Triodion exhorts us, “Let us observe a fast acceptable and pleasing to the Lord.” Using hymns from the Triodion and the Scripture readings appointed for the season, Meditations for Great Lent shows us how to make our fast acceptable: to fast not only from food but from sin; to fast with love and humility, as a means to an end and not an end in itself. Keep this gem of a book with you to inspire you for the Fast and to dip into for encouragement as you pursue your Lenten journey.

Serve the Lord with Gladness brings together two related meditations on liturgical and priestly service. The first meditation "Our Life in the Liturgy" consists of a simple yet beautiful explanation of the Divine Liturgy. It leads the reader step by step through the unfolding Eucharistic mystery, providing a profound spiritual vision of this most significant aspect of the Church`s service to the Lord. The second mediation, entitled "Be My Priest," focuses upon the spiritual nature necessary for those called to the priestly ministry. Both evangelical and Eucharistic in its emphasis, the work proclaims that all priesthood finds its sources and fulfillments in the person of Jesus Christ.

In this book, Oliver Clément comments on three traditional prayers. The first, which is known to us all, is the Our Father. The author`s intention is not to rival prestigious works but to discern, within the depths of the text itself, a Trinitarian revelation, the ways of communion — the prayer of fire of which St John Cassian spoke.
