Sermons of Metropolitan Philaret on Cassette Tape
- Dear Members:
For anyone interested, I forward the message below.
Recorded sermons of Metropolitan Philaret (of blessed memory) are available
on cassette tape for anyone interested in purchasing them. The sermons were
recorded during the life of Metropolitan Philaret by his personal caretaker
Protodeacon Nikita (of blessed memory). Protodeacon Nikita recorded many of
Metropolitan Philaret's sermons and over the course of time, had acquired
quite a collection (over 400 tapes). Protodeacon Nikita sold the tapes to my
late brother Hieromonk Ignaty and myself several years ago.
The purchased recordings were quite extensive. Unfortunately some of them
were inaudible. Nonetheless, after laboriously sifting through all the
recordings, we were able to salvage enough material to fill 20 cassette tapes
worth of material (130 sermons). My late brother relayed to me one day,
exhausted after spending many hours and days sifting through the material
purchased from Protodeacon Nikita, that he had a dream one night that
Metropolitan Philaret came to his monastic cell (kelya) and bowed in front of
him as a gesture of thanks for the work he was doing and then quickly
departed without saying a word.
The complete collection consists of 20 cassette tapes, 55 minutes each and
contain 130 of Metropolitan Philaret's sermons. The sermons touch on every
subject and are too numerous to list here. The tapes can be purchased as a
set or individually and are labeled in sequential order from 1 to 20.
I also have available 5 cassette tapes containing sermons of Archbishop
Averky (of blessed memory), Abbott of the Holy Trinity Monastery in
Jordanville, NY. They also can be purchased as a set or individually.
For additional information on ordering these tapes, please send your
