In recent years more and more Christians in the West have been discovering the many blessings of the Jesus Prayer. This prayer originated among the Desert Fathers and Mothers of the Eastern Mediterranean around fifteen hundred years ago, and for centuries has inspired and enabled Christians of the Orthodox Church to find a deeper relationship with God through the continual rhythmic repetition of the short prayer, ‘Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me’. In this book, James F. Wellington tells the story of his own journey with the prayer, highlighting the graces which he has received on his travels. These include unceasing prayer, inner watchfulness, stillness of heart, and perfect longing. He concludes with a celebration of what the Jesus Prayer has taught him, and is still teaching him, about the inner geography of the human heart.

“Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me.” This very simple prayer was developed in the deserts of Egypt and Palestine during the early centuries of Christian faith, and has been practiced in the Eastern Orthodox Church ever since. It is a prayer inspired by St. Paul’s exhortation to “pray constantly” (1 Thessalonians 5:17), and its purpose is to tune one’s inner attention to the presence of the Lord. This series of “little books” is designed to enable you to grasp the meaning of one ancient method of Christian prayer in a relatively short amount of time. In Praying the Jesus Prayer, one of today’s most respected voices on Orthodoxy in America introduces you to: • The history and meaning of this popular but rarely understood method of talking to God • What it means to really pray with both heart and mind • How to get started incorporating the Jesus Prayer into your life.

The Jesus Prayer, one of the great treasures of Eastern Orthodoxy, is becoming increasingly known and valued in the West. Brother Ramon, an Anglican Franciscan hermit, and Simon Barrington-Ward, former Anglican Bishop of Coventry, received instruction in this form of prayer from Archimandrite Sophrony, one of the greatest of recent Orthodox teachers living in the West. In this delightful book, they pass on what they learned with great clarity and power, grounding their teaching in the Scriptures and adding insights and stories from the Western church and from around the world. The authors provide practical guidelines for how to practice the prayer, both indiviidually and corporately, and they relate the prayer to some of the most essential patterns of Christian discipleship.

If the grace of the Divine Spirit, flowing upon the sacraments, transforms them into a deified Body and Blood, then how can it be a creature that is supernaturally capable of [doing] so much.The work of St. Mark of Ephesus Sillogi(sti)cal Chapters was published for the first time in 1849 as an annex to the editio princeps of Life in Christ by St. Nicholas Kavasila. Then this edition was repeated in Leipzig in 1899. Problems of the writing of St. is in line with the problems at the center of the Palamite disputes. Suffice it to name the treatises of St. Gregory Palamas About the divine unity and distinction and the anti-palamite Manuel Cripple (PLP 10289) About the essence and energy, and John Kiparissiota (PLP 13900) On the difference of divine essence and divine energy. For another basic work of the Saint which stood up in defense of the Palamite theology (On the distinction between divine essence and energy - 2 treatises against Manuel Kaleka) has not yet been published, this treatise remains one of the most important for exploring the heritage of St. Mark.

The meditative prayer practices known as Hesychasm and the Jesus Prayer have played an important role in the history of Eastern Orthodox Christianity. This book explores how these prayer practices have spread from a primarily monastic setting within Orthodox Christianity, into general Orthodox Christian usage, and finally into wider contemporary Western culture. As a result of this gradual geographic shift from a local to a global setting, caused mainly by immigration and dissemination of related texts, there has been a parallel shift of interpretation causing disagreement. By analyzing ongoing conversations on the practices, this book shows how such disagreements are due to differences in the way groups understand the ideas of authority and tradition. These fundamental ideas lie beneath much of the current discussion on particular aspects of the practices and also contribute to the wider academic debate over the globalization and appropriation of religious traditions.

Profoundly rooted in the Scriptures and first practiced centuries ago by the great teachers of the Eastern Orthodox tradition, the Jesus Prayer, with its many variations, is among the world's most ancient forms of devotion. But how does it apply to today's world? Why does it remain so popular among men and women, lay and religious, from all over the world and in every Christian religious tradition?With an eye toward the issues facing contemporary Christians, Father Wilfrid Stinissen shows readers the underlying reason why the Jesus Prayer continues to hold universal appeal for Orthodox and Catholics, Anglicans and Protestants, and all kinds of Christians of both Eastern and Western traditions -- it is a sign of hope in an age of anxiety, a beacon of light in a world of uncertainty. The prayer, in its simplicity and clarity, brings the new life granted by the Holy Spirit into vivid focus.Easily understood yet deeply profound, this book traces the evolution of the Jesus Prayer from its beginnings in the tradition of the Desert Fathers and the words of the Old and New Testaments through Christianity's expansion into the second millennium. In penetrating style, Father Stinissen demonstrates how the Jesus Prayer sums up the whole of the Gospel, bringing the body and the heart closer to Christ.

Thousands have fallen in love with the anonymously authored book The Way of a Pilgrim - the account of an ordinary man's encounter with the Eastern Orthodox Christian practice of the Jesus Prayer, which consists of the constant repetition of a short phrase such as "Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy upon me." The practice transformed the author's life as he wandered throughout the Russian countryside saying the prayer and recording his experiences with it. Readers of the book in its time would have had a wealth of teachers to approach for learning the prayer themselves and working with it, but modern readers have nowhere to go for this. Here, then, is the perfect introduction to this life-changing practice, as it was taught by one of the great spiritual lights of Russia. Bishop Ignatius Brianchaninov provides wise instruction and advice covering all aspects of the practice, from how to get started, to dealing with difficulties that arise, to dealing with the people who don't understand what you're doing, to making the Jesus Prayer (also called the Prayer of the Heart), an integrated part of your life.
