MEDITATIONS FOR GREAT LENT: REFLECTIONS ON THE TRIODION

Author: ARCHIMANDRITE VASSILIOS PAPAVASSILIOU #: 10563
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 OUR LIFE IN THE LITURGY, AND BE MY PRIEST

Author: A MONK OF THE EASTERN CHURCH #: 10565
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.

THREE PRAYERS

Author: OLIVER CLÉMENT #: 10567
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.

ORTHODOX LENT, HOLY WEEK AND EASTER: LITURGICAL TEXTS WITH COMMENTARY

OF WATER AND THE SPIRIT: A LITURGICAL STUDY OF BAPTISM

Author: ALEXANDER SCHMEMANN #: 10571
In this study of the Orthodox understanding of Christian initiation, the rites of baptism and chrismation, Fr. Schmemann invites us to “rediscover” baptism. He penetrates the Church`s rubrics and rituals, often dismissed as out-of-date or merely quaint — to reveal their inner content: a message of man`s entrance into new life, into the Church and into the Kingdom. The result is a powerful statement of the meaning baptism should hold in our lives.

CELEBRATION OF FAITH, VOL. II: THE CHURCH YEAR

Author: ALEXANDER SCHMEMANN #: 10572
There is no human society without celebrations, holidays and feasts, "The feast is part of man`s inescapable rhythm of work and rest," observes Fr Schmemann. But beyond the need to rest from work, the development of celebrations in human culture has much deeper root in man`s absolutely irrepressible need, not just for rest, but for joy, for meaning that we find the true source of celebration and its tenacity in human society. Feasts, in every culture, have become the repository and expression of a society`s goals, ambitions, and world view. As Fr Schmemann writes, "tell me what you celebrate, and I will tell you who you are."

A COMMENTARY ON THE DIVINE LITURGY

Author: NICHOLAS CABASILAS #: 10573
Nicholas Cabasilas` Commentary on the Divine Liturgy is a remarkable product of Byzantium`s last great flowering of theology. The work has long been essential reading for specialists in the fields of comparative liturgy and history of liturgy, since Cabasilas` comments in detail on the Byzantine rite of his day and is able to draw comparisons with the Roman liturgy as well.
