This book about the Divine Liturgy is intended for children and young people. It is based on the The Divine Liturgy: A Commentary in the Light of the Fathers by Hieromonk Gregorios. The included stories were taken from the remarkable book Miracles and Revelations from the Divine Liturgy published by the Holy Monastery of Paracletos.
