In this volume, Fr. Sebastian Dabovich (1863-1940) offers the reader separate readings and sermons on several several different subjects. As a pastor, he is obliged to instruct the people in all that pertains to salvation. On perceiving that of all his instructions, the present ones, which were also given in the present order, were more or less suitable, and could be, with less difficulty, compiled into a volume, with something bearing at least the semblance of a system, he decided to publish them in their present appearance. These instructions were offered to Christians by a Spiritual Adviser. Therefore, the reader must not expect to discover a learned thesis on Liturgical Science or Theology. The object which moved the author to publish this book is of a two-fold nature: firstly, he desired that the children of the Church, born in America, should have the opportunity of obtaining a book which they could easily read and understand, and, by God's grace, thereby grow firmer in the Faith; and, secondly, he desires with all his heart to contribute the little of God's might within him to further the holy object of Christ's Church and to teach others about the Orthodox Faith.
