From the Back Flap:
From the Prologue: Proper nourishment during an individual’s childhood sets the
foundation for good health for the remainder of his life. Similarly, a conscious
participation in the Divine Liturgy from a person’s childhood sets the foundation for
their spiritual health and progress—it provides all the spiritual provisions for a lifetime…
With these thoughts in mind, we decided to publish a book about the Divine Liturgy
intended for children and young people–a need we ourselves keenly felt as the parents
of seven children. We based our project on the The Divine Liturgy: A Commentary in the
Light of the Fathers by Hieromonk Gregorios. The stories that we have included were
taken from the remarkable book Miracles and Revelations from the Divine Liturgy
published by the Holy Monastery of Paracletos.
We offer this book as a small contribution and aid for every young person who
wishes to place the Divine Liturgy at the center of their life, as well as for parents and
catechists who work closely with children. Being aware of the sublime nature of the
Divine Liturgy, we have not presented a mere simplification of the meaning(s) of the
Mystagogy, since we know that a right understanding of the Service comes from
experiencing it…We hope that the inclusion of stories and illustrations will assist the
conscientious reader in their effort to better understand the Divine Liturgy.
