Preachers & Priests

This page contains materials of particular interest to preachers and priests, or anyone who wishes to advance their knowledge of the liturgical or homiletic experience of Christianity.


Sermons on the Feasts of the Theotokos

Of the Twelve Great Feasts, five are devoted to events in the life of the Virgin Mary, and are considered important theologically – hence their inclusion in the Great Festal cycle. The following sermons were written and preached by our venerable fathers and saints Andrew of Crete, Gregory Palamas, Sophronius of Jerusalem, Proclus of Constantinople, Gregory the Wonderworker, Leo the Great, Ambrose of Milan, Augustine of Hippo, Theodore the Studite, and John of Damascus. 157 pages.

The General Menaion

The General Menaion contains services for each type of celebration (Apostles, Martyrs, etc.) with blank spaces for the name of the saint being celebrated. Until recently, it has not been available in print in English. Several versions are available through, but they are generally not useful for liturgical services, being either too small or too poorly formatted to use in Orthodox worship. When a parish is not able to afford a complete set of menaia, it is normal to use the General Menaion to fill in for those services which are missing. 466 pages.
