Welcome to Jordanville Readings. The monks who came to Jordanville’s Holy Trinity Monastery from Eastern Europe after World War II brought with them a tradition of printing that stretched back to St Job of Pochaev in the seventeenth century. Through the fathers’ tireless efforts, the monastery has published over 500 Orthodox Christian books in Church Slavonic, Russian, and English.Today the monastery’s publishing work takes the name of Holy Trinity Publications, and over a hundred active titles are in print and available worldwide. To expand the reach of this timeless wisdom, we’re utilizing the latest technology to make many of these works available in new ways — as Print on Demand books, as e‑books, and now — as part of this daily podcast.
Every weekday, we’ll bring you a 10 to 15 minute selection from our library: spiritual counsels from saints like the Righteous Father John of Kronstadt and the Holy Hierarch Ignatius Brianchaninov, biographies of hermits, monks, and martyrs, and much more. Listen on your morning walk, during your lunch break, or on your evening commute as we offer a daily dose from the Heritage of Orthodox Russia.
