An engaging, illustrated guide to confession for children. This 100-page, easy-to-use aid will help a child understand and prepare for confession. Designed for both younger and older children, this book assists the child with brief, inspirational thoughts followed by prayers and an age-appropriate self-examination based on 1 Corinthians 13 (the "love chapter"). A Child's Guide to Confession also includes a glossary of basic vocabulary that children typically encounter when learning about or going to confession. Fully illustrated in a simple, colorful, yet reverent style.
This work for our children was compiled by the editors, as well as various staff members and content contributors, of Ancient Faith Ministries under the supervision of several Orthodox clergy as cited on the copyright page: namely, Fr Noah Bushelli, Fr Nicholas Speier, and Fr Andrew Stephen Damick.
This deeply theological text was composed by St. Nikolai (Velimirovich) as a poetic expression of love for the Resurrected Lord. He scribed the manuscript with his own hand, on Pascha 1923, and dedicated it to his spiritual son, Father (now Saint) Justin Popovic. Astonishingly powerful and unique, this akathist is an added treasure in that it is written by a saint of our own times.
We are pleased to offer this Akathist again, after being out of print, as a completely new addition: A larger format (5 1/2 x 8 1/2") and printed on sturdy paper with a matte cover. Both cover and inner pages are full color, including two images of the saint. This edition includes the added advantage of being stitched and glued, and bound with a spine.
