CONCERNING FREQUENT COMMUNION OF THE IMMACULATE MYSTERIES OF CHRIST BY ST. NIKODEMOS THE HAGIORITE
Volume two in the series:
The Works of Saint Nikodemos the Hagiorite
These words of our lord Jesus Christ have been, since the moment they were spoken, a “scandal” and stumbling block, and a point of departure for all who could not see in them "words of eternal life" (Jn. 6:58). The misconceptions and misinterpretations continue to exist today, as does the need for a patristic and pastoral response. Just such a reply exists in Saint Nikodemos” renowned work, Concerning Frequent Communion. The pious reader will find therein answer, combed from the entire patristic tradition, to such questions as: How should I approach the Holy Mysteries? What preparation is necessary? How often should I commune? And, what does it mean to be "worthy" of Holy Communion? Based upon and gathered from the teachings of the Holy Fathers of the Church, Concerning Frequent Communion provides the much needed comprehensive and "catholic corrective" to the variety of one-sided approaches so prevalent today.
