The life and acts of Saint Silouan remained uncovered for many people until the end of his life on earth and until his blessed appearance in front of God, for Whom he cried all his life, like the fallen Adam, yearning for Him and searching Him in tears. It is the expression of his deep humility, although his cognition and communion with God was very close and personal as with a friend.

 

His life, in many ways, resembles us who belong to Christ and live in this modern society of temptations and atheism. That is why we can freely say that Saint Silouan is the most authentic monk of present times and the forerunner of the new wave of “modern” monasticism. (more…)

         Животот и делото на Свети Силуан останало сокриено за многумина се до неговото завршуање на овоземниот живот и негово блаженото преставување пред Бога по Кого, како паднатиот Адам, цел живор плачел и копнеел и со солзи го барал. Тоа е израз на неговото длабоко смирение иако неговото познание и  заедница со Бога била најприсна и лична на како со пријател.

         Неговиот животен пат во многу потсетува на сите нас кои денес сме Христови и живееме во ова современо општесво на соблазни и Богоотстпништва.  Затоа слободно можеме да кажеме дека свети Силуан е најавтентичен монах на денешницата и предводник на новиот бран  “современи” монаси.

Elder Paisios the Athonite (1924-1994)

ELDER PAISIOS the Athonite (1924-1994) was a devout ascetic, whose gentle manner and acceptance of those who came to receive his counsel and blessing endeared him to his visitors, and who has become one of the most beloved of spiritual fathers.

In 1979, he found a permanent home on the Holy Mountain, at the hermitage Panagouda, which belongs to the Monastery of Koutloumousiou. It was here that Elder Paisios’ fame as a God bearing elder grew, drawing to him the sick and suffering people of God. He received them all day long, dedicating the night to God in prayer, vigil and spiritual struggle. His regime of prayer and asceticism left him with only two or three hours each night for rest.
