Hello!

 

It's been a while since I've posted, and wanted to see what people have chosen for edifying reading during this Great Lent?

 

 

My present list (keeping it short so I might actually do it!):

 

* Season of Repentance: Lenten Homilies of Saint John of Kronstadt
* Elder Cleopa of Sihastria: In the tradition of St. Paisius Velichkovsky
 
 

In Christ,

 

Gregory

The book I have chosen this year is Turning the Heart to God by St Theophan the Recuse, I find one book sufficient alongside all the biblical reading set for services in Great lent.

I'm reading the Lenten Triodion. Yes, we use it for our services but close and careful reading of it in the quiet of the home makes you realise what a treasury it is.

PK - I think I have that in my library but I have to check.  St. Theophan is always a great choice!

 

RA - Interesting you mention the Triodion.  There is a ton of material that probably just flies by during the services, especially if you on kliros juggling that and other books.

I'm reading The Evergetinos, vol 2.....The first few chapters are tailored reading for Forgiveness Sunday. It is amazing reading!

 

I'm also reading The Ladder of Divine Ascent and the book, The Watchful Mind Translated by George Dokos.

I'm attempting to re-read for whatever time, The Communion of Love.  Praying that as I do, this copy without highlighted or underlined passages, God will pour fresh oil into my heart.

 

the sinful and unworthy servant,

I've been reading Prayers by the Lake-St. Nikolai Velimorich which I actually started reading in January when I received this profound book as a gift. Not a book to rush through. It's awesome.

I'm sorry, I misspelled the last name, it's Nikolai Velimirovich:
