How a monk begins, lives and succeeds - photo journal from a tonsure at a cell - The Ascetic Experience

The man who has come to hate the world has escaped sorrow. But he who has an attachment to anything visible is not yet delivered from grief. For how is it possible not to be sad at the loss of something we love? Vigilance We need to have great vigilance in all things. But we must give our whole attention to this above everything else. I have seen many people in the world, who by reason of cares, worries, occupations and vigils, avoided the wild desires of their body. But after entering the…

What is asceticism - photo journal from a blood donation - The Ascetic Experience

Asceticism is the branch of medicine that aims at healing the human soul which is eternal and reaching eternal personal perfection. The need of God No one can do this, because of this the good God has mercy on us and does this, but he needs the practical proof that we want this because in His delicacy he does not crush our freedom. The commandments of God are not the expression of the chief vis-à-vis the subordinates, but the recipe for healing the human personality and reaching real…

A five-dollar bill in Pennsylvania - a miracle of 20th century - The Ascetic Experience

It was in the parish of perpetually-depressed Johnstown, Pennsylvania, a number of decades ago. The colors of the land were washed out. The sky was drab with winter, even in spring, and the view from the parish rectory grimy, looking over the grey mountain-range and a tired horizon. Much of the area’s industries were shuttered and moved. Alternating houses sat with their eyes boarded-up. The priest stood outside his parish doors, looked down the street, over the horizon, and saw approaching…

Avarice: A Lack of Faith - The Ascetic Experience

Avarice: A Lack of Faith - The Ascetic Experience

Avarice (“the love of money”) is the worship of idols, the daughter of unbelief, a lying excuse for illness, a foreboder of old age, a harbinger of drought, and a herald of hunger. The lover of money sneers at the Gospel and is a willful transgressor. He who has attained love scatters his money. But he who says that he lives for love and for money has deceived himself. After all, the money grubber sees himself only as the body. That is why he seeks to extend his life on earth as much as…

The irrationality of war - The Ascetic Experience

Someone which isn’t warmed by the love of others, will start a fire around him in order to warm himself. This is the irrationality of war in a society without God. That’s why our link with God is essential because it is the link with peace and love. Without God we are condemned to be at war with ourselves and with others. The one which starts a war with others is already defeated in the war with himself and in the war with the demons. We are always in times of war inside us and so we must be…

Saint Joseph the Hesychast was anti-medicines then later opened up to them - The Ascetic Experience

My child, I hope you are well. Just recently, I got somewhat better too. This is how my life has passed, with pain and illnesses. Now I have approached death once again for your sake. I said, “Let me die, only let my spiritual children live.” And I didn’t eat at all. I was already exhausted, and now I eat almost nothing once again. You sent so many sweets, but I didn’t even taste them. I didn’t have any cheese – only boiled greens without bread. It was only a short time before I collapsed…

The meaning of time - a photo journal with an old clock - The Ascetic Experience

Eternity cannot simply be an unchangeable substance, it cannot be like eternal self-sustaining law. Such eternity cannot be inexhaustible and creative. The fact that it is inexhaustible and creative comes from its interiority, which is one of a personal Existence. Eternity must include an inner dimension and freedom of the will. Only then can it be inexhaustible, a source of continuous novelty. If we think of God’s eternity simply in terms of pure reason, or of eternal substance, then we…
