Sewn hardcover, two page marker ribbons, gold edges, 380pp., 17x24cm. The Divine Liturgy: A Commentary in the Light of the Fathers by Hieromonk Gregorios, Elder of the Cell of St. John the Theologian, Koutloumousiou Monastery, Mount Athos, is the most important commentary on the Divine Liturgy published in recent memory. Based on the writings of the Holy Fathers of the Church, it draws the reader into "the mystery of God’s love; that it was given because He first loved us; and that from it we obtain the beneficence of becoming participants in Christ and images of His love." Assiduously referenced, Fr. Gregorios begins by introducing the reader to the history and purpose of this great mystery of the Church. He then leads the reader through the entire service, from its preparation in the Rite of Kairos, through the concluding final dismissal of the faithful. The Divine Liturgy: A Commentary in the Light of the Fathers is a book for both newcomers to the holy Orthodox faith, and for those who wish to acquire a deeper understanding of its theology and symbolism leading to a more profound participation in sacrament of the Divine Eucharist.

    Commentary on the Divine Liturgy

    Posted by Arthur on 29th Sep 2022

    This book is outstanding and provides in-depth insight into our Divine Liturgy. I learned a lot and gained much in my perspective, there is a great amount of meaning that I now understand far better than I did before. I am confident that whoever reads this book will really enjou it and maybe even buy it for others like I did because like with any other great discovery you will want to share it with others.
