What an amazing book Elder Paisios now St Paisios was a true treasure on this earth This book is so rich with wisdom that it took me a year to finish Certain uotes were so powerful that I d have to stop reading write it down and then contemplate what was just said I now have a notebook filled to the brim with uotes from this book Elder Paisios words are powerful refreshing insightful and most of all life changing People are sinking and grabbing onto anything that will keep them afloat but what they grab onto is sinking too p29 Nowadays the heroes are those who do not salute the devil p 40 Humans feel the comfort of sin and don t have the heart to leave They smell the stench but stay anyway p 45 Everything is backwards For one NOT to sin it s considered an insult And to sin it s considered progress p46 The devil is roaming free today because people have given him the right to do so p52 The devil has no way of knowing a good thought that crosses the mind He is aware of the bad thoughts because he planted them there himself p61 The greatest enemy of our souls greater than the devil himself is the secular spirit p71 What many don t understand is that worldly success is actually spiritual failure p80 And the list goes on

Read & Download With Pain and Love for the Contemporary Man Paisios of Mount Athos Ð 9 Free read review Û E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ð Paisios of Mount Athos This is the first volume of the series 'Spiritual Counsels of the Elder Paisios of Mount Athos' It is divided into four thematic parts Each part is subdivided into chapters and every chapter into sections with the approprite subheadings; • Part 1 Sin and the Devil• Part 2 Modern Civilization• Part 3 The Spirit of God and the Spirit of the World• Part 4 The Church in our TimesThe Blessed Elder Paisios was born on 25th July 1924 From the time that he was a child Elder Paisios lived an ascetic life. This is Volume 1 of a compilation of teachings of St Paisios as recollected from notes and recordings from his fellow Orthodox monks and from others whom he ministered to As such this volume deals with Paisios s teachings on dealing with sin and temptations living daily Christian life in modern culture discerning between living a life close to the Holy Spirit vs one close to the world and using the life of the Church in these times to grow closer to GodSomehow Paisios has a way of expressing truths and insights that get through my own hardened heart and thick skull I think that my own stereotype of monks for decades has been that they are isolated out of touch with minds far off in the clouds somewhere with little in the way of a practical understanding of how ordinary people live and the situations they deal with But despite living a personally ascetic and rigorous lifestyle Paisios shows a very clear understanding of these things What s interesting to me is how he handles situations where one might expect severity but gives practical advice and compassion and others where one might expect diplomacy and tact but where he s blunt and very direct Yet in every occasion his dealing with the situations seem to be exactly the best medicine for the ills he s asked to address In some cases he shows great spiritual insight In others his advice or teachings are not unlike what one might expect from many persons giving advice like Dr Phil or Anne Landers or Dr Laura Schlesinger Overall an outstanding book I think this is an excellent book for anyone interested in learning of Orthodox Christian wisdom and practices or in finding ways of living a effective Christian life
