Elder Cleopa: Stories for Children
by Elder Cleopa

This collection of stories, written for a young audience by one of the most important Orthodox Christian elders of Romania, contains teachings about faith, the Christian virtues, the lives of the saints, prayer, icons, and many other topics. The first volume includes stories about God's greatness, the value of faith, St. Mark of Trache, the fear of God, and one of the Psalms.


Life According to the Gospel
by Patriarch Paul

It is not easy to teach the Gospel. One of the few among our contemporaries who completely succeeded at overcoming those obstacles is His Holiness Serbian Patriarch Paul (+2009). Some of Patriarch Pavle's sermons have been published over an extended period of time first in Kosovo and Metohija (1983-1990), and later in Belgrade.

These sermons are dedicated equally to the faithful and to the unfaithful, to Serbs and non-Serbs. During the most recent war Patriarch Paul did not forget even the enemies of Serbian people but was worried about their salvation; he prayed to the Lord to show them the way of truth, justice and peace. His role and voice are truly universal. The entire material is arranged chronologically; each sermon being dated and designated by the place and the occasion for it.


Prayer Book-English, Serbian
by various

A beautiful pocket-size, full-color English Language prayer book; it contains prayers commonly used by Orthodox Christians, list of Scriptural Commandments, brief articles on the precepts of Faith, proper conduct in church, and the meaning and practice of prayer. It is adorned with striking icons and illustrations by Fr. Stamatis Skliris

The Mystical Marriage
by Elder Aimilianos of Simonopetra (Mt Athos)

This book contains six talks by Elder Aimilianos of Simonopetra (Mt Athos), focusing on select passages from the Chapters on Love by St Maximos the Confessor. More than a simple commentary, these talks offer a profound yet approachable introduction to the principles and practice of Orthodox spirituality.

From Chapter One:
We often say that we love God, and sing the praises of His love, but we are not able to pray without distractions. If this is the case, it means we are not speaking truthfully, that our praises are empty, because genuine love for God is the generative cause of undistracted prayer, and undistracted prayer is the generative cause of the love of God.


Words of the Heart

This book contains the homilies as well as the wonderous life of the Abbess of blessed memory, the venerable Gerondissa Makrina Vassopoulou.

“The venerable Makrina was blessed. All who read her discourses with prayer will sense the fragrance of Gerondissa’s prayer, the scent of the desert of Mt. Athos as it was experienced in a coenobitic monastery, the spiritual life of this true child of true hesychast fathers, and true mother of blessed nuns.” -Metropolitan Hierotheos of Nafpaktos

“Her simple speech speaks to the hearts of all, for it comes from her authentic, holy experiences…. A person of praxis and theoria, Gerondissa was rich in virutes, and she was and still is a guide of others toward Christ and a model of authentic spiritual person, when virtuous examples to follow are becoming increasingly difficult to find. -Stavros Kourousis, Professor Emeritus, University of Athens


The Wilderness Journal: 365 Days with the Philokalia
by Angela Doll Carlson

The Philokalia - a collection of the best writings from Orthodox spiritual masters across many centuries - is a treasure trove of direction for the spiritual life. But it can be overwhelming at first glance. Popular author and podcaster Angela Doll Carlson set herself the mission of reading through The Philokalia in a year and journaling about the thoughts it called up in her. The result is a thoughtful, inspiring daily devotional that introduces new readers to this great spiritual classic and helps us apply the wisdom of the ages to a layperson's life in the modern world.

Beautiful Things: An Orthodox Colouring Book for Children
illustrated by Megan Elizabeth Gilbert

The Orthodox Christian experience is infused with beauty.

Beautiful Things is a 64-page coloring and activity book for our littlest believers. As they color the Good Shepherd or the Jesus Prayer, they are cultivating their own sensibility to beauty while learning to recognize some of the meaningful symbols, elements, and motifs of the Church.

The Barn & the Book
by Melinda Johnson

Sam wants to know if animals (especially Saucer!) can speak at midnight on Christmas Eve. Grace and Macrina are competing to write a story, and Elias is losing his patience. Meanwhile, Sister Anna hopes God will rescue her from teaching Sunday school. Christmas is coming, but hearts are full of secrets and frustrations. The Barn and the Book is a story about the traps we build when we try to see in the dark. We tumble into trouble and confusion on our own, but God can steer us clear of our traps and shine His kindly light into our darkness. [Ages 7-12, independent readers; read-aloud ready for all ages!]


Shepherding Sam
by Melinda Johnson

Sam’s Aunt Eva says he’s like a tornado—he causes a ruckus everywhere he goes. But Aunt Eva won’t give up on Sam, and neither will Saucer, the monastery’s corgi puppy. Saucer lives at the monastery, but he dreams of herding sheep. With no sheep in his life, Saucer tries to herd everyone else—farm animals, nuns, and especially Sam. Sam doesn’t want to follow anyone, not even a funny puppy. But Saucer knows that if he just keeps trying, he can bring this lonely boy back to the flock.

Everything Tells Us about God
by Katherine Bolger Hyde

Inspired by a story told by Father Thomas Hopko

Everything Tells Us about God will help children recognize the beautiful and sometimes mysterious pieces of this puzzle for themselves.
