The One Thing Needful contains a full yearly cycle of 58 sermons by Archbishop Andrei of Rockland, a man known for his wealth of spiritual experience and pure theology. Each sermon stands alone, yet each is, when connected to the rest of the cycle, woven into a harmonious whole, dedicated to the “one thing needful” which Christ spoke of to Martha and Mary in Luke 10:42. Archbishop Andrei’s homilies are cherished by many for their lofty and profound truths as revealed in Scripture, and the light they provide for any Christian seeking a deeper spiritual life.
