SAINTS FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE:
BRIEF HOMILIES ON THE
LIVES OF THE SAINTS

By Metropolitan Augoustinos Kantiotes
Translated by Father Asterios Gerostergios

Proof that the Church is eternal and universal, and that those who think that the saints lived only in “previous ages” and only as monastics are incorrect, is found in this book by Metropolitan Augoustinos of Florina. Its title is indicative of its contents: Saints from All Walks of Life.

These saints from various occupations are examples for Christians of our times. One’s occupation is not an obstacle to holiness, provided it is neither illegal nor sinful. Whatever decent and useful occupation a Christian has, he can become holy. He must be honest and conscientious in his professional obligations and in his Christian duties. 2011. 202 pp.

SACRED CATECHISM OF THE ORTHODOX CHURCH
By Demetrios N. Vernardakis

The Sacred Catechism of Vernardakis (1833-1907), a distinguished Professor of the University of Athens, was selected in 1872 by the Oecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople as the best of all catechisms in existence. And it was highly recommended by the Patriarchate for use in the schools.

A British scholar, Claude Delaval Cobham, who resided in Cyprus as Commissioner of Larnaca, prepared an abridged English-language version of the Sacred Catechism, and had it published in Nicosia, Cyprus. Professor Constantine Cavarnos studied it painstakingly and found it very concise, precise, clear, analytical, extremely edifying, truly Orthodox Christian in substance and in manner of exposition. Seeing the great need for such a book, he decided to have it published. Accordingly he made various improvments in Cobham's translation and presentation of the text.

For those who desire to learn something more of substance about the Orthodox Church, Cavarnos has added a Supplement that consists of three illuminating chapters on Orthodox Architecture, Iconography, and Hymnody. 2003. 141 pp., 12 illus.
