Saint Paisios the Athonite


Product Description

With the help of God, and after the work of a great many years, our Sisterhood, propelled by our sacred obligation toward the Saint, who for twenty-eight years had guided and benefited us in so many ways, presents the publication of the Biography of Saint Paisios the Athonite. We also had the great blessing of gaining some insight into the immeasurable love the Saint had for God, his monastic exactitude, his absolute self-denial and the power of his fervent prayer. Having lived in such close proximity to him, we personally experienced his holy simplicity and his profound humility, his God-illumined discernment, his noble love for each person, but also his deliberate efforts to conceal his virtues. We therefore deemed it our obligation to utilize all the materials –both information and knowledge bequeathed to us in order to compose, to the best of our ability, the biography of the saintly Elder. The contents of this Synaxarion stem primarily from our communication with the Saint – from the notes we had kept during the gatherings of the Sisterhood and the private conversations we had had with him. – Publisher's Description
