The first volume of the inspiring spiritual counsels of St. Paisios the New of Mt. Athos.
A true ascetic who spent his life cultivating the virtues of humility and love, Elder Paisios always sought to draw people closer to the Kingdom of Heaven. In these spiritual counsels one sees the living, eternal wisdom of the Church Fathers through the suffering love of a beloved saint and modern guide of souls.
From the book: "How can a man feel truly consoled if he does not believe in God and in the true eternal life after death? When we grasp the deeper meaning of the true life, anxiety falls away, and divine consolation comes and we are healed."
