In time for Lent, the Hermitage of the Holy Cross presents a brand new, beautiful, English language service book for the Divine Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts. For many years, there has not been available to ROCOR priests and deacons, a decent and easy-to-use English language service book for the Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts. After over 12 years of editing and improving on existing texts, the fathers at the Hermitage have finally compiled an instructive and workable service book which uses common ROCOR prayers and petitions and which has proven to be an indispensable aid to serving the Divine Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts.
The fathers at the Hermitage paid special attention to the formatting in this book, so that it is very "user-friendly." That is, we emphasized the unique parts of the service so that the clergy can more easily navigate the complicated parts of the service. This new book is also very beautiful. The artwork used throughout the book is inspired by ancient illuminated texts which have been faithfully rendered and recreated, making this service book a joy to behold. It is full color and nearly 80 pages long. The font used in the book is large and easy to read. The book is 5.5 in. x 8.5 in. and is spiral bound. This type of binding makes it easier to use because the book lays flat on the priest's analogies. The Hermitage brotherhood is very happy that God has allowed the printing of this much-needed book, which is the first liturgical service book for clergy printed by the Hermitage.
