A long-awaited resource for those among the laity who wish to read along with the divine services. This volume contains the complete texts of Vespers, the liturgies of St. John and St. Basil, and the Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts. These texts mirror those contained in the priest's services books: the Hieratikon, volumes I & II.
An introduction is included which discusses the participation of the faithful in worship, excellent for inquirers. Also contained are pre- and post-communion prayers and hymns for the liturgical year.
