The titles of Uncut Mountain Press are all beneficial Lenten reading material.
- Lent is, traditionally, a time of increased catechesis. Elder Cleopa of Romania is an excellent teacher for the Church and his books Truth of our Faith (Volumes 1 and 2) are foundational texts to learn the Orthodox Faith. Patristic Theology and Noetic Prayer as the Basis of Mission and the Struggle Against Heresy will also be some valuable reads for catechetical aids.
- By reading the lives of saints and holy elders today, we learn how to truly repent which is our calling for this Lenten season. Apostle to Zaire, Athonite Fathers of the 20th Century, and Metropolitan Philaret: Zealous Confessor for the Faith, provide these examples for us.
- A requirement in repentance is exercising the virtue of watchfulness, not only in the movements of our own soul, but in the larger temptation facing the world and society. Books like Let No One Fear Death, Antichrist: The Fulfillment of Globalization, Catholicism in Light of Orthodoxy, and Ecclesiological Renovations of Vatican II (and a good companion to it The Missionary Origins of Modern Ecumenism), and Common Prayer with the Heterodox equip the faithful to stay strong in the faith in the midst of the struggle against the spirit of this age.
This weekend, March 10-12, take advantage of our 20% discount on all books as a way to benefit your Lenten struggle. Type in the discount code LENT20 when checking out at Uncut Mountain Press (https://uncutmountainpress.com).
