Facing East: A Pilgrim's Journey into the Mysteries of Orthodoxy
Mathews-Green, Frederica, Facing East: A Pilgrim's Journey into the Mysteries of Orthodoxy, Harper Books.
Veiled in the smoke of incense, the Eastern Orthodox Church has long been an enigma to the Western world. Yet, as Frederica Mathewes-Green discovered, it is a vital, living faith, rich in ritual beauty and steadfast in integrity. Utilizing the framework of the Orthodox calendar, Mathewes-Green chronicles a year in the life of her small Orthodox mission church [in Catonsville, Maryland] , eloquently illustrating the joys and blessings an ancient faith can bring to the worshipers of today.
