My joy, I beg you, acquire the Spirit of Peace. That means to bring oneself to such a state that our spirit will not be disturbed by anything. For one must go through many sorrows to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. This is the way all righteous men were saved and inherited the Heavenly Kingdom….

—St. Seraphim, from his conversation with N. Motovilov

One of the most beloved Orthodox saints of recent times—St. Seraphim of Sarov (1759–1833)—was a priest, hermit and spiritual guide who, in early 19th-century Russia, led many souls along the path of apostolic Christianity.

The first volume of the Little Russian Philokalia Series contains the Life of St. Seraphim, his “Spiritual Instructions to Laymen and Monks,” his soul-saving conversation with Nicholas Motovilov “On the Acquisition of the Holy Spirit,” and his prophetic “Great Diveyevo Mystery”—which, until the publication of this book, had never been revealed in the English language.
