This abridged Book of the Hours is certainly not for church services; rather, it is intended for the laity and is to be used at home, at work, or wherever one goes. It is printed in a pocket sized edition, making it available to be carried easily. Daily life can be hectic, yet we still need to pray and be in communion with God. It will help each person using it to become more aware of the Church at prayer. When we have the opportunity to go to the church, we will be better informed and open to praising God more fully within community.
Our 2015 icon calendar features icons of the Virgin Mary from many different contemporary American iconographers. Major saints and feast days traditionally celebrated in Orthodox countries around the world are listed.
An excellent, exhaustive examination and an incisive interpretation which is quite inspiring of Holy Week and Easter. A must for all Christians who wish to gain spiritual benefit from participating in the services of Holy Week and Easter.
