In fact, the whole earth is a living icon of the face of God. - The Ascetic Experience

Possibly a contentious unbeliever will maintain that we worshiping images in our churches are convicted of praying to lifeless idols. Far be it from us to do this. Faith makes Christians, and God, who cannot deceive, works miracles. We do not rest contented with mere colouring. With the material picture before our eyes we see the invisible God through the visible representation, and glorify Him as if present, not as a God without reality, but as a God who is the essence of being. In fact…

How should be an iconographer - The Ascetic Experience

An iconographer should ideally have an intense ascetic life, since his internal state will be reflected in the way he paints his icons. In general, all artists express their internal world through their external art. That’s why everybody, but especially artists, must, with their internal eye, depict the beauty of Paradise rather than the pain of Hell. The internal eye of this photograph shows an iconographer from Vatopaidi’s workshop painting a copy of the miracle-working icon of the Mother…

The worship of icons - The Ascetic Experience

The honour shown to the icon passes to the person(s) depicted. If I point to a statue of Caesar and ask you ‘Who is that?’, your answer would be, ‘It’s Caesar’. In saying so, you do not mean that the stone itself is Caesar, but rather that the name and honour you ascribe to the statue passes to the original, the archetype, Caesar himself. Just as with the holy icons within the orthodox christian faith. Based on St. Basil the Great An iconographer from Vatopaidi putting the finishing touches…

Elder Ephraim (Moraitis) of Philoteou, Arizona - Photo Journal with his life - The Ascetic Experience

Elder Archimandrite Ephraim (Ioannis Moraitis – June 24, 1927) was an archimandrite and former abbot of Philotheou Monastery on Mount Athos, spiritual guide of four monasteries on Mount Athos and of eight women’s convents in Greece, as well as the founder of 19 monasteries in the United States and Canada. He resided in Arizona at St. Anthony’s Greek Orthodox Monastery until his repose (December 7, 2019). Elder Ephraim was a hieromonk for 71 years and an elder for more than 50 years. He was a…

The Seraphim - The Ascetic Experience

The first group of angels consists of those who are in God’s presence and are said to be directly and immediately one with Him: the Seraphim with their six wings, the many-eyed Cherubim and the holiest Thrones. An angel, then, is an intelligent essence, in perpetual motion, with free-will, ministering to God, having obtained by grace an immortal nature. It is not susceptible of repentance because it is incorporeal. For it is owing to the weakness of his body that man comes to have…

Saint Paisios of Mount Athos about the scandals in Church - The Ascetic Experience

Some people tell me that they are scandalized because they see many things wrong in the Church. I tell them that if you ask a fly, “Are there any flowers in this area?” it will say, “I don’t know about flowers, but over there in that heap of rubbish you can find all the filth you want.” And it will go on to list all the unclean things it has been to. Now, if you ask a honeybee, “Have you seen any unclean things in this area?” it will reply, “Unclean things? No, I have not seen any; the place…

Death: Lack of comprehension - The Ascetic Experience

God made us in His image and likeness—that is, just a single created god—a single Human in many persons of two kinds (man and woman), as He is a single God in three persons. God created a giant mind, a created god, in which all persons would cooperate flawlessly through their minds in real time to accomplish the same goal, even if each person would keep his specificity. It is like when someone runs: his legs do one thing, his hands another thing, his eyes yet another thing—of course, his…

Γιατί τηρούμε απόλυτη ησυχία στον εξάψαλμο; - ΕΚΚΛΗΣΙΑ ONLINE

Είναι γεγονός οι πατέρες ορίζουν κατά την ώρα που διαβάζεται στην Εκκλησία ο εξάψαλμος, να μη κάνουμε καμιά κίνηση, να μη μιλούμε, να μη κουνηθούμε από τη θέση μας, να τηρούμε απόλυτη ησυχία και να είμαστε πολύ προσεκτικοί.

Saint Mark the Ascetic: self-justification and humility exclude one another - The Ascetic Experience

He who secretly mingles his own wishes with obedience is an adulterer, as the Book of Proverbs indicates (cf. Prov. 6:32-33); and because of his stupidity he suffers pain and dishonor. Just as water and fire cannot be combined, so self-justification and humility exclude one another. He who seeks forgiveness of his sins loves humility, but if he condemns another he seals his own wickedness. Do not leave unobliterated any fault, however small, for it may lead you on to greater sins. If you…
