Book: Orthodox Spirituality: A Brief Introduction, by Metropolitan HierotheosBook: Orthodox Spirituality: A Brief Introduction, by Metropolitan Hierotheos"A faith is a true faith inasmuch as it has therapeutic benefits. If it is able to cure, then it is a true faith. If it does not cure, it is not a true faith.

The same holds true where matters of the soul are concerned."

Book: Short Trip to the Edge: A Pilgrimage to PrayerBook: Short Trip to the Edge: A Pilgrimage to PrayerMost intriguing in Short Trip is its apprehension of beauty in terms that are both spiritual and physical. Cairns engages all of the senses in his pursuit of a life made prayer. The deep stillness that he gains from worship is “sweet” and “delicious” (161). Indeed, the poet is able to understand the psalmist’s command to “taste and see that the Lord is good” in what for him is an entirely new way.
