Started the new book just published by St. Herman of Alaska Brotherhood:
The Beginnings of a Life of Prayer by Archimandrite Irenei
Only on page 40 or so, but am finding it to have very helpful reminders, and is instructive and inspiring at the same time. I always thought Father Irenei was so intelligent that it would be difficult for me to fathom anything he says. But this book is really so very well written that I have no problem following his train of thought, even though I am so busy and stressed at this time.
He quotes quite a bit from various sources, like the Philokalia for one.
And he is a very kind, pastoral caring Father Confessor who takes the time to listen then give his suggestions and prayers, even for a visitor. But sometimes it's hard to remember everything said, so this book is something I can go back to again and again if needed.
