In this volume, Elder Cleopa explains the origins, meaning, and purpose of the Holy Mysteries of baptism, chrismation, confession, ordination, marriage, and holy anointing. He also deconstructs the errors of those who misunderstand or reject this life in Christ. Squarely based on Holy Scripture and its interpretation by the Holy Fathers of every age, Elder Cleopa brings to light neglected knowledge and rejected counsel stored up for so many centuries in the Orthodox Church--insights that could have helped avoid the disintegration of the Western church, and which may still aid in its restoration even today.
