The Great Collection of The Lives of the Saints, Volume I: September

   
Translated from the Slavonic edition published by the Christian Printshop of the Transfiguration Almshouse in Moscow in the year 1914 from the original compiled by Saint Demetrius of Rostov and published in Kiev
First English Edition Translated by Father Thomas Marretta

Volume I of The Great Collection of The Lives of the Saints

“In these volumes of the present collection we offer to English-speaking Orthodox Christians the first set in any modern Western language of full-length accounts of the struggles and martyrdoms of the most eminent saints to cover the entire course of the year. Our devout forebears in the faith had as their daily reading not newspapers and novels but the Holy Gospels, the Psalter, the Book of Hours, and the Lives of the saints. Nourished constantly by these, their souls were filled with ineffable delight and spiritual yearning, and they lived not for this fallen world but in expectation of the eternal kingdom. It is our hope that these volumes will likewise ever be in the hands of the Christians of our time.”
