Orthodox Saints & Patristic Church Fathers (206)
In the flood of christian ascetics who left the world to seek God alone, Simeon chose a novel withdrawal. He mounted a pillar and remained there the rest of his life. To him came supplicants with all kinds of problems: personal anguish, sickness and pain, infertility, sin, and social transgression. Public issues were mediated at his shrine and slaves manumitted. Three views of the Stylite in three lives.

Harry Boosalis compiles a systematic study of the teachings of St Silouan the Athonite (1866-1938) and reveals the relevance of Silouan`s spritual instruction for contemporary Christians. Drawing parallels with patristic teachings and highlighting patristic sources, Boosalis demonstrates Silouan`s traditional roots while revealing several novel insights of the saint. Special attention is devoted to the acquisition of the grace of the Holy Spirit, spiritual warfare, the significance of suffering, humility, love for all mankind and prayer for the salvation of the whole of creation.

The entire Orthodox world venerates the humble Russian monk, St. Seraphim of Sarov (1759–1833). First a meek and labor-loving monk, later an ascetic recluse, and finally a spiritual guide to thousands of the faithful in 19th-century Russia, St. Seraphim remains one of the most beloved saints in his own land, and is known universally as a miracle-worker and a glorious bearer of God`s grace.

The Serbian Orthodox Saint, Basil of Ostrog, has continued to be a powerful heavenly intercessor since his repose in the seventeenth century. The miracles that occur at his incorrupt relics, which are treasured at Ostrog Monastery in Montenegro, are without number. Christians and Muslims alike come before his relics and find healing of their gravest illnesses and afflictions. Healings of Soul and Body chronicles nearly two hundred of these miracles, most of them from modern times. Through these accounts one acquires a vivid sense of the Saint`s closeness, and of the mercy of God, Who is wondrous in His saints.

In the autumn of 1892 a young Russian peasant named Simeon from the province of Tambov was drawn to that ancient repository of Orthodox spirituality, Mt Athos. He had done his military service and now came to the Russian Monastery of St Panteleimon, to embark on long years of spiritual combat lasting until his death in 1938. Although he was unlearned and ignorant in the ordinary sense, tireless inner strivings gave him authentic personal experience of Christianity identical with that of many of the early ascetic Desert Fathers.
