This new addition to the Series of Akathists is a Canon of Prayer, to be said on behalf of one who has taken his or her own life. Intended for devotional (private) use, it is offered with the blessing of His Eminence Archbishop Kyrill of San Francisco. The Introduction, written by Bishop Irenei of London, provides a sober, yet mercifully compassionate voice from the Church. For ease of use, there are two sections: one intended for the soul of a man, and the other for the soul of a woman.
Full-color cover and inner pages, abundantly illustrated.
A simple but informative account of the life of St. Paisius Velichkovsky. 8 pages, stapled.

A little booklet of poetical prayers on the theme of Christ's Nativity, taken from St. Nikolai Velimirovich's famous Prayers by the Lake.
