Philokalia means "love of the beautiful and good." It was the name given to a celebrated 18th-century collection of Greek mystical texts on the Christian spiritual life, teaching the path to true sobriety and the fullness of union with God. This "Little Russian Philokalia" is a new collection of ascetic texts drawn from Russian sources, chiefly of the 18th through 20th centuries. The first volume is devoted to St. Seraphim of Sarov (1756-1833), one of Russia's best loved saints, a heavenly man overflowing with Christ-like love, to whom the mysteries of the other world were open. His amazing and supernatural conversation with Motovilov is included in this volume. 158pp. Published by St. Herman of Alaska Brotherhood.
