The Purity of the Heart - Spiritual Life Series vol. 8 by Hieromonk Gregorios, Elder of the Cell of St. John the Theologian, Koutloumousiou Monastery, Mount Athos. Trim size 4x6, 74pp.
FROM THE PROLOGUE:
Frequently the agony that distinguishes worldly people in their daily struggle for survival is also experienced in the spiritual struggle undertaken the faithful Christians We often ask what God wishes of us and what it is that we lack, that we have lost our peace of mind. Is it more fasting and ascetic discipline, is it almsgiving, is it prayer?
Of course all these virtues are needed, and we should strive to the best of our ability to attain them, but they are not the aim of the spiritual life. They should not be the ultimate goal of our struggle. For God asks nothing of us but a pure heart, that he may come and dwell in us. This is what Jesus Christ himself revealed to us when he blessed those who hearts are pure: Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. (Matt. 5:8) That I, those who have a pure heart are blessed and happy, because they will behold God!
BOOK: Sewn hardcover, two page marker ribbons, gold edges, 124pp., 4x6in.
THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD: PRAYERS TO OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST, translated by Very Rev. Archimandrite Maximos Constas, is a collection of thirty prayers to Jesus Christ, along with a concluding prayer to God the Father. Intended as a companion volume to Mother of the Light: Prayers to the Theotokos, the prayers to Christ collected in this volume are remarkable for the intensity of religious feelings they express, as well as for their strongly compunctive and confessional character. These prayers are the work of some of the greatest Fathers of the Church, including St John Chrysostom, St Gregory the Theologian, St Maximos the Confessor, St Symeon the New Theologian, and St Gregory Palamas. The volume contains an introduction by the translator, the Very Rev. Archimandrite Maxmos Constas, Dean of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, who places these prayers within the larger context of Christian experience and the life of the Church.
All that are careful for this life: procure books that will be medicine for the soul.
— St. John Chrysostom
