A Word of Wisdom
"Abba, give me a word that I may live."
Journey through the Holy Pascha Week integrates passages from the Old and New Testaments along with hymns and prayers from the Coptic Church rites in the midst of scenes from the film Jesus of Nazareth to expose the depth and richness of the readings and rites of the Coptic Church. It is our hope that after watching this DVD our thoughts will be further focused on the images and events of the most important week in the history of mankind.

Here you will find links to the full text and audiobook of The Imitation of Christ by Thomas e’ Kempis, as well as sources for more information about the Orthodox refutation of the heretical doctrine of purgatory. The Abbey would like to point out that while The Imitation of Christ is full of very beneficial principles for the Orthodox Christian spiritual life, there are some references to the heretical doctrine of purgatory made in the text. Within the Book 1 CD that has been distributed, these references are made specifically in chapters 21 and 24.
