Thoughts for Each Day of the Year According to the Daily Church Readings from the Word of God

   
By St. Theophan the Recluse
Translated by Lisa Marie Baranov
Edited by Nun Cornelia and the St. Herman of Alaska Brotherhood

“While most of the daily entries in this book refer to the Scripture readings assigned to those particular days, St. Theophan occasionally comments on other Scripture passages, or even on cultural and philosophical trends of his time. His aim is always to provide nourishing food for the soul. Contemplating his words on a daily basis, the reader is given continuous encouragement to strive more diligently in cutting off unbelief and sin, growing in faith and virtue, and drawing closer to our Lord and Savior. An Orthodox Christian cannot read this book without feeling convicted in his conscience by the holy Recluse’s powerful exhortations. If one takes up the challenge raised by the Saint, one can find true and lasting benefit for one’s soul.”
