The Great Book of Needs, Expanded and Supplemented, Volume II: The Sanctification of the Temple and other Ecclesiastical and Liturgical Blessings

   
Translated from Church Slavonic with notes by St. Tikhon’s Monastery

Volume II of The Great Book of Needs, Expanded and Supplemented

“Let it be known that no one may found a church, whether constructed of stone or wood, except the Bishop himself, or an Archpriest, or one of the Priests, whom it shall please him to send with his special blessing, for this purpose. But if anyone shall dare, without the blessing of the Bishop, to begin the construction of the church, let him be subject to expulsion, for he has despised the authority of the Bishop.”
