The greatest Christmas gift is Christ Himself.

Saint Nikodemos Publications

This video is presented by Mr. Constantine Zalalas, an international speaker who holds a master's degree (with honors) in Dogmatic Theology from the University of Thessalonica. He has published a number of pamphlets and books. His most recent publications include In Search of the Truth (partnering with St. Anthony's Monastery in AZ), Volumes 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5; On the Book of the Revelation by Archimandrite Athanasios Mitilinaios (Zoe Press), My Exodus from Roman Catholicism by Bishop of Nanzianzus Paul De Ballester; and Tears of Repentance by Athanasios Katigkas. Zalalas was born on January 30, 1956, on the island of Kos in Greece and while in his early teens, immigrated to the United States with his family. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology at Millersville University of Pennsylvania in 1978. Mr. Zalalas is currently a member and a pastoral assistant of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, where he resides with his family. In 1988, while on pilgrimage to the holy places of Greece, he met Archimandrite Athanasios Mitilinaios, the great elder, teacher and interpreter of the Holy Scriptures. Soon, with the blessing of the Elder, by God's grace, Constantine began translating and presenting the homilies of the elder. Today, over 200 one hour long teachings have been translated and are available on several web sites (, ) and on the YouTube channel “Nicodemos Hagiorite.”
