Our Father among the Saints, the Great Schema-Archimandrite Paisius (1722-1794), truly is, as this akathist says, a "chosen commander of spiritual warriors, guide and all-wondrous shepherd of monks, who through the writings of the Fathers fed our souls." And he feeds us yet today, though his writings, his witness, and most importantly through his heavenly intercession.
This new release is the fourteenth in our well-known Akathist Series, printed in an attractive, pocket-sized format, with extra-sturdy covers intended for frequent use. Includes several full-color depictions of the Saint. 40 pages.
The saints of our Church, even the greatest elders and ascetics, were once children!
On one summer day, in Konitsa of Epirus (Northern Greece), the young Arseny beheld the “Light of the world” with his own eyes. Over the years, this very child grew up to become the beloved saint we know today as St. Paisios the Athonite.
In this book, children will learn about the life of St. Paisios through sweet and moving stories, filled with wisdom and joy.
