This collection of sayings from the Holy Elders of Optina Monastery is newly translated by Archimandrite George of Holy Trinity Monastery. These brief and powerful instructions on the spiritual life are comparable to the sayings of the Desert Fathers, whose spirit and way of life the Optina Elders truly shared. The book provides an excellent source of spiritual nourishment for Orthodox Christians of all walks of life and all levels of spiritual experience. It may also serve as a powerful introduction to Orthodox spirituality for those who have but newly encountered the fullness of the Apostolic Faith.

Topics Include:

  • Spiritual Warfare
  • The Will of God
  • Remembrance of Death
  • Salvation
  • Consolation
  • Monasticism
  • The Education of Children
  • and numerous others...

"We must unhypocritcally live, And to all an example give. Then will our work be sure; Otherwise it will turn out poor." — St. Ambrose of Optina
