St. Nikolai (Velimirovich) composed this deeply theological, personal expression of love for the Resurrected Lord in his own hand, on Pascha 1923, and dedicated it to Fr. Justin Popovic. Astonishingly deep and personal, this akathist is a real treasure written by a saint of our own times. 43 pages, large format.
Jesus, Conqueror of death, have mercy on me.

On Pascha of 1993, three young monks of the famous Optina Hermitage – Hieromonk Vasily, Monk Therapont, and Monk Trophim – were brutally murdered by a satanist. The saintly lives of these monks show that their martyric death was a special gift to them from the Lord. Based on a book published by Optina Hermitage, with many excerpts from Hieromonk Vasily’s diary, this book is the most complete account of their lives, miracles and writings available in English.
This recording by our monastic choir includes all the hymns of Paschal Matins, including the Paschal Canon in its entirety, and a few of the special hymns from the Paschal Divine Liturgy. In addition to Russian chant, the CD also includes chant of Byzantine and Georgian origin. Chanted in English.
