The Romanovs: Family of Faith and Charity

by Maria Maximova
illus. Victoria Kitavina
trans. Nicholas Kotar

The life of the last Russian emperor and his family was not necessarily what one would expect; there was much more than fancy clothes and delicious food. They shared happy memories but also great hardships. They nursed the sick, ate porridge, kayaked along the Finnish coastline, and cared for chickens. Today we know them as the Royal Martyrs — deeply pious Orthodox Christians who laid down their lives for the Faith and role models of Christian virtue who showed kindness even to the guards who taunted them.

Stories of Unexpected Grace

by Olesia Nikolaeva
trans. Alexandra Weber

The Deceitful Onion Bulb. A Blessing to Smuggle. The Conjuror of Rain. In this collection of stories as whimsical as their titles, award-winning author Olesia Nikolaeva poignantly recounts life for Christian believers in Soviet and post-Soviet Russia. In a manner reminiscent of the bestselling "Everyday Saints" these tales reveal a common theme - the subtle, sometimes imperceptible movement of Divine Providence at work in the lives of saints and sinners alike. Her writings bring us to what the ancient Celts called “thin places” where the boundaries of heaven and earth meet and the sacred and the secular can no longer be distinguished.

Click to orderThe Romanovs Under House Arrest

From the 1917 Diary of a Palace Priest by Afanasy Beliaev

"...for the last time the former rulers of their own home had gathered to fervently pray, tearfully, and on bended knee, imploring that the Lord help and intercede for them in all of their sorrows and misfortunes."

Thus the Archpriest Afanasy Belyaev described the faith and piety of the Russian Imperial family, whom he served as priest and confessor, on the occasion of the Tsarevich's thirteenth birthday. These selected excerpts from the chaplain's diary open a window into the souls of the now sainted Royal Family and the struggles endured in their first five months of confinement following the abdication of Tsar Nicholas II in early 1917.

Russian cultural historian Marilyn Pfeifer Swezey sets the diary in its historical context and offers an epilogue to complete the story of the Romanov's journey to martyrdom at the hands of a Bolshevik firing squad in a Siberian basement. Also included is a short life of Fr Afanasy and biographical information regarding the various persons appearing in the work. This anniversary edition has been copiously illustrated throughout with color and black and white photos (some rarely or never published before) as well as charts and maps.

Cover_Communion Rule

 The Wonder-working Kursk Root Icon of the Mother of God

Coloring Book

Maria Naumenko  

The grace of God is manifested in the wonders of nature that surrounds us. This is apparent both in the beauty of the natural world and in the everyday blessings in our lives. Yet history is filled with instances of supernatural grace, or miracles. Such was the appearance of the Kursk Root Icon of the Mother of God found by a hunter in a forest near the Tuscary river. The text that accompanies this coloring book recounts the history of the icon, miracles associated with it -- including the healing of St Seraphim of Sarov, and the hymns associated with its feastday in the Orthodox Christian Church.

The artwork includes lavish borders in an old Russian style that together with the illustrations will be a joy to color. Together with the text they will make an excellent gift or school room resource.

Commentary on the Holy Scriptures of the New Testament, Vol. 2

by Archbishop Averky (Taushev)

Writing in the tradition of biblical exegetes, such as St John Chrysostom, Blessed Theophylact of Bulgaria, and St Theophan the Recluse, the work of Archbishop Averky (Taushev) provides a commentary that is firmly grounded in the teaching of the Church, manifested in its liturgical hymnography and the works of the Holy Fathers.

Alexander Schmorell

Saint of the German Resistance

by Elena Perekrestov

At the height of World War II, a small band of students in Munich, Germany, formed a clandestine organization called the White Rose, which exposed the Nazi regime’s murderous atrocities and called for its
schmorell w/ horse overthrow. In its first anti-Nazi tract, the group wrote, “...Nothing is so unworthy of a civilized nation as allowing itself to be ‘governed’ without opposition by an irresponsible clique that has yielded to base instinct...” The students risked everything to struggle against a world that had lost its moorings. Early in 1943 key members of the group
were discovered and executed. Among those put to death was Alexander Schmorell, a young man of Russian birth whose family came to Germany when he was a small boy. This biography eloquently recounts the journey of an energetic and talented young man who loved life but who, deeply inspired by his Orthodox Christian faith, was willing to sacrifice it as a testimony to his faith in God that had taught him to love beauty and freedom, both of which the Nazis sought to destroy. In 2012, the Russian Orthodox Church officially recognized him as a martyr and saint. The story of Alexander’s life and death is made available to English readers here for the first time, vividly illustrated with black and white photographs

The Field: Cultivating Salvation

by St Ignatius (Brianchaninov)

Trans. by Nicholas Kotar

   The first full volume of St Ignatius' works to be published in over 45 years! This is the first English-language translation of <<Аскетические опыты>>, volume 1 of the 19th century ascetic's collected Works.

   The Field draws deeply on the teachings of the ascetic fathers of the Church, from the desert dwellers of Scetis in Egypt to his Russian contemporaries the Optina Elders. He demonstrates how their voice is one in guiding us on the Christian path. It will be impossible for either lay people or monastics to read these words without being challenged and inspired to follow Christ more fully in cultivating the field of their own life.

How Our Departed Ones Live

The Experience of the Orthodox Church

by Monk Mitrophan; trans. by Archpriest John Shaw

2nd English edition

Our Lord Jesus Christ is the Conqueror of death, and, consequently, of the death of our departed ones. Let us say to them in Him, not 'Farewell,' but 'Until we meet again, beloved spouse, good parents, dear brother or sister. Until we meet again!'

While many are now abandoning traditional religious practice, none the less, the reality of death and questions regarding the afterlife remain at the forefront of spiritual consciousness. How Our Departed Ones Live is the answer to those who seek the truth as expressed through the experience of the Orthodox Church. This comprehensive book discusses the source of death and mortality, the inner connection and mutual relationship between the living and the departed, intercession by the living for the departed, and life beyond the grave. It will comfort the grieving and inspire all Christians to strengthen their resolve as they seek first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness.

Lenten Homilies of Saint John of Kronstadt

by John Ilyich Sergiyev

To be released in time for Great Lent. 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."

by Holy Trinity Monastery and Seminary Choir

Тема этого диска – освящение или искупление времени посредством богослужения, сквозь призму богатой музыкальной традиции Свято-Троицкого монастыря в г. Джорданвилль (шт. Нью Йорк. Песнопения взяты из всех богослужебный кругов церковного года – дневного круга: от полунощницы до повечерия, недельного круга - Октоих, годичного круга - Минея, и особого круга, т.н. движущегося, Пасхального - Триодь Постная и Цветная. Все песнопения раскрывают широту и богатство музыкальной традиции Джорданвилля в нынешнем его исполнении.

This recording explores the sanctification of time through the particular lens of the rich musical tradition of the Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville, NY. The hymns are taken from all the cycles of church services – the daily cycle from the midnight office to compline, the weekly cycle of the Octoechos, the yearly cycle of the Menaion, and the moveable cycle of the Triodion and Pentecostarion, which revolves around the feast of feasts – Pascha. These hymns serve to demonstrate the range and breadth of the musical tradition in Jordanville as it is sung today.

В наше время не сложно найти книги о монашестве, умном делании, старчестве. К сожалению, книг, написанных опытными носителями древней традиции Русского Православного монашеского делания достаточно мало. В этом и состоит преимущество книги И.М. Концевича «Оптина пустынь и ее время». Сам автор духовно окормлялся у Оптинских старцев, и традиции древнего старчества являлись главным интересом его исследовательской деятельности и личной духовной жизни. Этот труд, приготовленный к печати вдовой Ивана Михайловича, составлен на основе уникальных материалов, писем самих Оптинских старцев и воспоминаний современников.

Репринтное издание

По словам самого автора, работа не является попыткой реабилитировать Имп. Николая II как человека и государственного деятеля. Тем не менее, в целях восстановления истины, автор документально опровергает домыслы и злостные выдумки советских авторов и западных историков, которые до нашего времени не скупятся на чернила и бумагу, чтобы постоянно очернять до предела замученную в чекистском застенке Царскую Семью. В этой книге, читатель найдет наиболее полное и объективное исследование убийства Царской Семьи. В ней систематизированы все документальные факты, касающиеся этого трагического эпизода русской истории.

Recollections of Jerusalem

 Recollections of Jerusalem

By Anya Berezina Derrick


Anya Derrick’s life has been intimately connected to the earthly city of Jerusalem in Palestine where she was raised in the spirit of Holy Russia, as manifested in the life of the Russian Ecclesiastical Mission, the Mount of Olives and Gethsemane convents, as well as the Bethany School.  

Her spiritual life was nurtured by St John (Maximovitch) of Shanghai and San Francisco, Archbishop Antony (Sinkevich) of Los Angeles, the hieromonk Lazarus (Moore), and Mother Mary (Robinson).  

These recollections also offer a window into the struggles and aspirations of the Russian diaspora after the Communist takeover of the ancestral homeland. It shows how events such as the Russian revolution, its aftermath, and the Arab–Israeli conflict have shaped present realities.

Indication of the Way

into the Kingdom of Heaven

An Introduction to Christian Life

By Saint Innocent of Alaska

This introduction to what it means to be a Christian appeals both to the heart and mind of its readers. Its timelessness and universality are beyond dispute as it has been in print continually in English for sixty years and for nearly 180 years in its original Aleut and then Russian language editions. This new edition includes "Points for Reflection" that can be used both by an individual reader and for a group study. 

The author,  Priest John Veniaminov, was a Russian born and raised in Siberia. He went on to become Bishop of a massive trans continental diocese and ultimately the Metropolitan of Moscow, the most senior Bishop of the Russian Orthodox Church. He is most widely known today by the simple title of St Innocent of Alaska.
