Meditations for Great Lent: Reflections on the Triodion Archimandrite Vassilios Papavassiliou| Paperback | 89 pp | £6.95

The Lenten Triodion exhorts us, “Let us observe a fast acceptable and pleasing to the Lord.” Using hymns from the Triodion and the Scripture readings appointed for the season, Meditations for Great Lent shows us how to make our fast acceptable: to fast not only from food but from sin; to fast with love and humility, as a means to an end and not an end in itself. Keep this gem of a book with you to inspire you for the Fast and to dip into for encouragement as you pursue your Lenten journey.

Thirty Steps to Heaven: The Ladder of Divine Ascent for all Walks of Life Archimandrite Vassilios Papavassiliou| Paperback | 256pp | ÂŁ13.99

Many laypeople have attempted to read the great spiritual classic, The Ladder of Divine Ascent, but have been frustrated in attempting to apply the lessons of this monastic text to their everyday lives in the world. In Thirty Steps, Archimandrite Vassilios interprets the Ladder for the ordinary Christian without sacrificing any of its beauty and power. Now you too can accept the challenge offered by St. John Climacus to ascend closer to God with each passing day.

Great Lent: Journey to Pascha Father Alexander Schmemann | Paperback | 140 pp | ÂŁ10 Schmemann draws on the Church's sacramental and liturgical tradition to suggest the meaning of Lent in our lives. The Lenten season is meant to kindle a 'bright sadness' within our hearts. Its aim is precisely the remembrance of Christ, a longing for a relationship with God that has been lost. Lent offers the time and place for recovery of this relationship. The darkness of Lent allows the flame of the Holy Spirit to burn within our hearts until we are led to the brilliance of the Resurrection.

We were banished once, O Lord, from Paradise through eating from the tree; but Thou hast led us back again, O my God and Saviour, through Thy Cross and Passion. At the intercession of Thy Mother, give us strength through this Thy Cross to keep the Fast in holiness and to worship Thy divine awakening, the Passover of salvation. Exapostilarion Matins, Forgiveness Sunday

The Greek East and The Latin West: A Study in the Christian Tradition Philip Sherrard |Paperback | 214 pp | £10.50 The division of Christendom into the Greek East and the Latin West has its origins far back in history but its consequences still affect Europe, and thus Western Civilization. Sherrard's study seeks to indicate both the fundamental character and some of the consequences of this division.
