By St. John of Krondstat

This is the first new material by this great pre-revolutionary Russian pastor and miracle-worker to appear in English since My Life in Christ in 1897. The sermons are an exhortation to repentance; that is, a reorientation of our life away from everything that is superfluous and a turning toward God as our Creator and Lord. They bring us ultimately to Holy Friday and to the foot of the Cross of Christ. Thus, the saint concludes: “Let us love Truth, let us love mercy, that we may be shown mercy.”
