Some Short Theological Writings


The shorter sermons and articles of Archbishop John, no less than his major writings, are deeply theological. Whether inspiring his flock to greater piety on the Church's feast days, or commenting on the meaning of contemporary events, the source from which he draws is always the Church's theology, contained in the Holy Scripture, the Divine services, and the writings of the Holy Fathers. His appeal to this theology is never abstract; he makes use of the Church's knowledge of God and His dealings with men only for the practical benefit of His flock: to raise their minds above worldly concerns, to inspire them with the ideals of self-sacrifice and struggle, to assure them of the victory of faith and righteousness over unbelief and lawlessness.
