On the Upbringing of Children

by Bishop Irenaius of Ekaterinburg and Sibirsk

“To parents struggling in this cold modern climate, we offer a small book of timeless guidance on how to teach virtues to children. The homilies in this book were originally published in Russia in 1901. The times have changed considerably since then, but human nature has not. We still have the age-old struggle with the passions, the world, and fallen spirits. We must still strive to train our own and our children’s souls to the high ideal of holiness given us by Christ.”
