A New Orthodox Marketplace Website is Coming!

The Orthodox Marketplace online web store and the Department of Religious Education's catalog store are in the process of merging operations.

While we are working out the details of this transition, the Orthodox Marketplace website will suspend sales functionality of the site. Customers will be able to browse the catalog, log in and check on the status of outstanding orders and order history (including downloads).

However, the cart and checkout features will be disabled.

If you wish to purchase items in the interim, a subset of our product catalog is still available from our Amazon Storefront.

You may also wish to purchase items from the Department of Religious Education Resource Guide, available below. The DRE can be reached via their toll-free number: 1-800-566-1088.

We expect the new Orthodox Marketplace and Resource Center website to launch later this summer.

A sequel to Living in Christ: Essays on the Christian Life by an Orthodox Nun, this volume continues the practical, insightful, and hard-hitting counsel of the Orthodox abbess of the Holy Myrrhbearers Monastery in Otego, New York. Obtaining maturity in Christ is a theme that runs throughout the work, and St Paul's admonition to "... come to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ" (Eph 4:13) appropriately describes the tone of the book.

Mother Raphaela assesses and addresses all the failings and spiritual detours that keep us from having the character of our Lord Jesus Christ — everything from false piety to heads swollen with knowledge. She also emphasizes the molding of character within community, where rough edges and prideful independence are transformed into graciousness and service to the neighbor. In the process, the reader will discern that the sins she speaks to are none other than those with which she has struggled herself, some admittedly, and some veiled in poetic statements: "How can you rule and govern when you have not experienced being ruled and governed?"

Illustrated with calligraphy by the author herself, these commentaries on monastic community, church, society, and the machinations of the human soul result from careful observation and reflection upon the spiritual and natural realms.
