By Constantine Cavarnos

“In this book are presented two homilies which I delivered at the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Annunciation of the Theotokos in Atlanta, Georgia on[...]one of the great feasts of the Orthodox Church, called 'The Sunday of Orthodoxy' and 'The First Sunday of the Fasts.' [...]My first homily[...]was 'Victory over Iconoclasm,' a subject very appropriate for the occasion. My next homily was[...]'Victories of Orthodoxy.' My speech of the previous evening, with the idea of victory, provided the motif of the various parts of my Sunday talk. In the latter, I discussed six other actual or potential victories of Orthodoxy over unwarrantable innovation or heresies, during the millennium that followed the ninth century victory over Iconoclasm.”
