  1. Spiritual Fatherhood

    Spiritual Fatherhood

    $24.95

    Spiritual Fatherhood: Evagrius Ponticus on the Role of the Spiritual Father Spiritual fatherhood is popular, controversial, and misunderstood. For Evagrius Ponticus (AD 343–99) and the early fathers, nothing can be spiritual without the Holy Spirit, and true spiritual fathers can say, with St Paul: “in Christ Jesus I begot you through the gospel” (1 Cor 4.15). This begets freedom, not dependence. In this relationship we see an image of the freedom given to all who receive “the Spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, ‘Abba! Father!’” (Rom 8.15). True spiritual fatherhood is a charism and a ministry of healing and teaching. It is a timeless part of the Church’s tradition, which has been maintained in the East. Fr Gabriel Bunge leads readers into the ancient understanding of spiritual fatherhood in the teaching of Evagrius, without losing sight of our contemporary condition. FATHER GABRIEL BUNGE, a priest and schemamonk of the Russian Orthodox Church, lives in a hermitage in Switzerland, Eremo Santa Croce. He possesses a thorough knowledge of patristic literature, and is known worldwide for his writings on contemplative prayer. Two of his other studies on Evagrius Ponticus—Despondency and Dragon’s Wine and Angel’s Bread—are also published by St Vladimir’s Seminary Press, as well as his book The Rublev Trinity. Learn More

    In the theology of Saint Silouan and Elder Sophrony, man is the target of divine visitations that serve to make him aware of the image of Christ within him. Elder Sophrony referred to the image of God in man as man's hypostasis or personhood. In this book, Archimandrite Zacharias, the disciple of Elder Sophrony, presents the principle of personhood through the lives of the elders of his monastery, Saint Silouan and Elder Sophrony.

  3. Little Corner of Paradise

    Little Corner of Paradise

    $29.95

    Elder Paisius (Olaru) of Sihla (1897–1990) was one of the most beloved spiritual fathers of Romania in recent times. In his youth he lived a life of prayer and service, learning from an older generation of spiritual giants. After World War II he moved to Sihăstria Monastery, where his spiritual son, Elder Cleopa, had recently become abbot. It was there that he became renowned for his spiritual wisdom and discernment, confessing the monks and laymen who came to the monastery. Eventually he moved to the nearby Sihla Skete, where he could continue his life of prayer in greater solitude. Throughout the Communist period, Elder Paisius was a refuge and shelter for those who desired to preserve their faith in those difficult times. Professors and doctors, farmers and factory workers all came to the humble elder to hear words of consolation, encouragement, and direction. A father of love and hope, he focused the gaze of his flock on Christ and His Heavenly Kingdom, expressing the wish that the Lord grant them a “little corner of Paradise.” Included in the present volume are the life of this remarkable elder, many of his spiritual teachings, recollections of his spiritual children, interviews conducted with him, his letters, and his poetry. “Prayer is not a theory that one learns in school. The prayer of the heart, that is, prayer made with the awareness of the heart, is a gift of the Holy Spirit…. Whoever loves God with his whole soul, with all his strength and all his heart, will be endowed with the gift of prayer of the heart and the gift of holy tears.” —Elder Paisius Learn More
