Great Lent sermons of Archimandrite John (Krestiankin), elder and spiritual advisor of the Holy-Dormition Pskovo-Pechersky Monastery, which are collected in the book entitled "Following Christ along the Road to Calvary", refer to different years. Some of such sermons were delivered by Father John in churches where he used to serve as a priest. But the majority were said during the monastery services.
When the elder came out to the ambo to speak, it was a special event for all those present in church. And it was not beacuse it was a rare occasion but due to the fact that his sermons always had a special beneficial power that helped to change for the better.
Father John passed over to the eternity more than 10 years ago, but his messages are still with us, they remain in force and urge us to aim for the Heavenly Kingdom.
