In the autumn of 1892 a young Russian peasant named Simeon from the province of Tambov was drawn to that ancient repository of Orthodox spirituality, Mt Athos. He had done his military service and now came to the Russian Monastery of St Panteleimon, to embark on long years of spiritual combat lasting until his death in 1938. Although he was unlearned and ignorant in the ordinary sense, tireless inner strivings gave him authentic personal experience of Christianity identical with that of many of the early ascetic Desert Fathers. The first part of this book is a remarkable account of St Silouan's life, personality and teaching by his spiritual disciple Archimandrite Sophrony. Archimandrite Sophrony went to Mt Athos in 1925 and there at the Monastery of St Panteleimon became amanuensis to Staretz Silouan. Part two comprises the writings of Silouan, originally penciled in laborious, unformed characters on odd scraps of paper. The Lord said, 'Every one that is of the truth hears my voice' (John 18:37). And according to Father Sophrony, 'these words are applicable to Staretz Silouan's notes ... [That] whoever has received from God the mind and wisdom to know him will be aware in the Staretz' words of the breath of the Holy Spirit.' In 1988 Staretz Silouan was placed in the canon of saints by the Ecumenical Patriarchate of the Orthodox Church.

Book Description St. Vladimirs Seminary Press February 1999, 1999. Paper Back. Condition: New. 'Keep thy mind in hell and despair not.' In the depth of demonic oppression in his struggle to achieve unceasing prayer, St. Silouan heard these words, to our ears so severe and perplexing, to his, a balm of divine consolation. In them, he found the key to ultimate triumph over pride and self-sufficiency and participation in the sufferings of Christ, the love of Christ for broken humanity. The life of St. Silouan (born in Russia 1866, arrived on Mt. Athos 1892, died 1938 and canonized in 1988) is related in a remarkably immediate way by Archimandrite Sophrony, who also lived on Athos and for eight years had Silouan as staretz. 'Archimandrite Sophrony felt convinced that Christ's injunction, 'Keep thy mind in hell and despair not' was directed through Staretz Silouan to our century especially, drowned as it is in despair.He believed, too, that as the Staretz had prayed for decades with such extraordinary love for the human race, entreating God to grant all mankind to know Him in the Holy Spirit, so men would love the Staretz in return.' (Rosemary Edmonds). 506 pp. Seller Inventory # 127738
