On the Divine Liturgy: Orthodox Homilies, Volume One

   
Augoustinos N. Kantiotes, Bishop of Florina, Greece
Translated and Foreworded by Asterios Gerostergios

Volume One of On the Divine Liturgy: Orthodox Homilies

“We decided to give our English-speaking Orthodox people these sermons of the Bishop of Florina, believing they will fill a void, for there are no such sermons in the English language. Moreover, these unique sermons offer to Christian people purely Orthodox food. As a skillful and noble servant of the divine word, the author introduces the reader to the lofty meaning of the Divine Liturgy. Using many examples and images from contemporary life as well as from history, he makes the Liturgy accessible and understandable, and leads the reader to feel ardent love for Christ and His Orthodox Church. The present volume, containing the interpretation of the first part of the Divine Liturgy, called the Liturgy of the Catechumens, will be followed by a second one, having an interpretation of the remainder of the Divine Liturgy, the Liturgy of the Faithful.”
