This book contains a collection of sermons and writings by our beloved father, Matthew the Poor. Renouncing his career as a well established pharmacist, the author devoted his life to following the steps of the desert fathers. Through these experiences, he shares with us many of the principles of our orthodox faith. We learn about fundamental topics such as: ‘How to Read the Bible’, ‘Repentance’, ‘the Deep Meaning of Fasting’, ‘the Virgin in the theology of the Church’ and much more. To the boy or girl, man or woman, looking to grow, with all honesty and seriousness in their spiritual life, this book comes highly recommended. It’s written with such detail and depth, but don’t let this deter you! For the most benefit, it calls for a contemplative approach. Read a word, a sentence or a paragraph and then take the time to soak it in.
