Nikodemos the Hagiorite
In Confession of Faith, written just two years before his blessed repose, St. Nikodemos the Hagiorite offers a personal response to his critics and accusers – a personal apologia written also on behalf of his brother Kollyvades. Defending the truth and the canonical order of the Church, he addresses such issues as the meaning of kollyva, the proper time for the celebration of Memorial Services, the special prerogatives due to Sunday, the theology of the divine Eucharist and the frequency of Holy Communion. Moreover, one is brought face to face with this great and holy personality, seeing him not only as a Saint and great Father of the Church, but as a sympathetic and honorable man full of love for his fellow Christians, especially for his enemies.
Written as a “just apology” and defense of the Orthodox Faith, and citing the examples of early Church Fathers who were persecuted for the Faith, St. Nikodemos addresses the subjects of Kolyva and Memorial Services, the Prerogatives of Sunday, That our Lord worked as a Carpenter, the Story of the Magi, and the Mystery of the Divine Eucharist. An important addition to instructional volumes on Orthodox teaching.
