Mary the Mother of God
Mary the Mother of God, the first volume in this series, Sermons by Saint Gregory Palamas, is a collection of some of the greatest homilies ever written on the Theotokos, including the most celebrated of all Palamas’s writings, his sermon On the Entry of the Mother of God into the Holy of Holies.
“Saint Gregory gave to the Church what is surely the most complete synthesis and perfect formulation of the Apostolic tradition of all generations. His theology, in a charismatic and ‘existential’ way, recapitulates, in its entirety, the spiritual experience of the saints of the Old and New Testaments . . . The sermons of Saint Gregory Palamas, in spirited and uncomplicated idiom, render his entire life’s work accessible to the people of God. In fact, they form the most complete introduction not only to his theology, but to the theology of all the great Fathers of the Church.” – Archimandrite Zacharias, Monastery of Saint John the Baptist, England
“Saint Gregory’s sermons on the Mother of God are among the profoundest and most eloquent dedications to the Virgin Mary in Christian literature. His second homily on the Presentation or Entry may be regarded as his ‘masterpiece’, for it stands not only as his most famous writing, but arguably as the greatest homily ever written on the Mother of God.” – Christopher Veniamin, Professor of Patristics at Saint Tikhon’s Seminary, USA
