For the first time, a selection of St. John of Kronstadt's Lenten sermons is presented in English translation. They follow the thematic structure of the Lenten season in the Orthodox Church, from the Sunday of the Publican and the Pharisee through to Great and Holy Friday. The homilies presented in this modest volume, from one of the spiritual giants of the Orthodox Church of Russia, can both encourage and inform us in this struggle of the Fast. A sermon for St. Thomas Sunday, that follows Holy Pascha, is offered as an Epilogue.
