A double CD set dedicated to St. Paisios the Athonite, one of the most beloved Saints of our day.
The first disc of this unique set includes the authorized Paraklesis for the Saint sung (in Greek) by the Father of the Cell of St. John the Theologian.
The second disc contains historic recordings of St. Paisios chanting at various festal celebrations.
(Note: All hymns are chanted in Greek)
St. Paisios the Athonite, a new saint of our Church, is undoubtedly a gift from God to mankind during these difficult times. The holiness of his life, the multitude of the miracles he performed during his lifetime and continues to work after his repose, and above all his noble love for all people have contributed to his becoming one of the most well-known and beloved Saints of our day.
The second disc contains recordings of the Saint himself chanting. Although he was not schooled in the theory of byzantine music, nevertheless, he understood music. He used to chant sweetly—his whole body trembling—with sincere reverence. It was an outpouring of his heart, a hymn of his pure love for Christ, the Panagia, and the angels.

This tearful, cleansing lamentation comes from the heart of a believing Orthodox person. With hope, she tenaciously clings to her Saviour with the boldness of one who knows the ultimate greatness of Christ's forgiveness. Not attempting to hide from Christ's gaze the magnitude of her sinful actions, the writer of this akathist fully presents her fallenness to the Lord without leaving unspoken even a trace for which the demons might accuse her at the Last Judgment. And out of the fullness of her repentance, in this liturgical expression of sorrow, she can freely call out: 36 pages.
