The Letters & Poems of Saint Joseph the Hesychast is the first in the Holy Mountain Series, a new book series created to continue to quench the spiritual thirst of our brethren with the empirical, ascetic teaching on the spiritual life of the Holy Orthodox Church, which has been lived to perfection on the Holy Mountain by numerous monks for over ten centuries. The Holy Mountain, also known as Mount Athos, has given birth to thousands of Saints in the Orthodox Church, most of whom are unknown. Through these letters we come to know on a personal level this spiritual giant of our times.

“Now listen to me; hearken unto my words, for I am about to tell you a great mystery of God’s dispensation, truly fearsome and hidden. Fly beside me, and I shall lead the way for you. We are about to pass through the ether. Fear not at all, for I have ascended many times, and I know the way. Let your nous free to imagine heavenly things, and behold, the gate of Paradise opens unto us. Here and there the angels stand by, the Cherubim and Seraphim, flying with six wings. Left and right are diamond walls. Golden flowers exuding myrrh fill the place with fragrance. Various sparrows are there with thousands of colors, warbling various melodies flowing with honey, raising our nous from theoria to theoria. The ground is white like snow, and therein is the great palace of our Queen and All-blameless Mother. So run, because our sweet Mother awaits us. Don’t pay attention to the angels, for it is written: ‘Not even angels should separate us from the love of Jesus.’ And behold, the good doorkeeper, a fiery angel, opens to us…”
