Why we must take care with children - The Ascetic Experience

The name you scratch on the bark of a tree will grow with it. The same goes for a child’s heart. What you scratch onto a child’s heart you will read it again bigger in the years which will follow. Great care is needed with children.

Monk George, the Hermit of Mount Athos

by Elder Joseph of Vatopaidi It is incredibly daring for one to believe that one may describe the life of someone who is a friend of the Lord, who is a spiritual person and who according to the Scriptures “he judges everything but no one can dare judge him” [1 Cor. 2:15]. Therefore we will not describe his life, but we will simply give a minimal account of the way he lived, since as it happens, he had been our acquaintance. This ‘most holy’ man, as I, without hesitation, describe brother…

The man of sorrows - Photo journal from the name day of the Abbot Ephraim - part 2: The Liturgy - The Ascetic Experience

He was despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Based on Isaiah 53:3 In these photos you can see candid shots from the feast held on the name day of Abbot Ephraim. All the archbishops present at the feast declined to serve the Divine Liturgy, leaving this honor to the Abbot.

How to regard people - The Ascetic Experience

You have to regard people with the utmost respect, but also with the deepest compassion. With trust but also with prudence, as if they’re children who are able to perform the purest and kindest of acts but are also capable of making horrendous mistakes.

The hardening of Pharaoh's heart and our free will - The Ascetic Experience

It’s not that God overrode Pharaoh’s free will; that is, it isn’t that Pharaoh was inclined to let the Israelites go but then God stopped him from doing so. It’s that Pharaoh was not inclined to let the Israelites go, but the miracles worked by God through Moses made him timid; God gave Pharaoh the strength of will to follow through on what he really wanted to do: keep the Israelites enslaved in Egypt. In that sense, God didn’t suspend or override Pharaoh’s free will; actually, God enhanced…

Be brave and don't lie to yourself - The Ascetic Experience

Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to the point where he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.

What is the “Jesus Prayer”, the “Prayer of the mind” and the “Prayer of the heart”? - The Ascetic Experience

The “Jesus Prayer” is the most powerful prayer, which contains the words “Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy of me.” This core original, traditional formula varied and varies slightly, depending on the historical period and the teaching school which used it. The most common additions, but not the only ones, are “Lord Jesus Christ, [son of God], have mercy on me, [the sinner].” And there are other variations. In any case, we recommend the shortest form because, especially nowadays, our minds are…
