How does this translation compare to that of the Holy Transfiguration Monastery's? Is it good/accurate?
 
I hope you guys enjoy this great spiritual treatise during this blessed Lenten season!

Pray for me,
Severian

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. -The Lord Jesus

The Saviour is made of elements which are distinct from one another yet He is not two Persons. God forbid! For both natures are one by the combination. -St. Gregory Nazianzen

My advice to all of you would be to download it just in case the link expires.

Isn't this the HTM version?
At nunc desertis cessant sacraria lucis:
aurum omnes victa iam pietate colunt.

Ἀπ' ὃσα ἒκαμα κι ἀπ’ ὃσα εἶπα
νὰ μὴ ζητήσουνε νὰ βροῦν ποιός ἢμουν

I perused the copy provided above and the HTM Ladder in hand and they seem to be the same.  HTM did make revisions if I recall.

As early as the eighth word of the translation, there are differences between this and HTM's. 

Regardless, a great resource.  Thanks for posting it, Severian.

^No problem.

I thought I'd do a Thread resurrection! to encourage you guys to (re)read it during the upcoming Lenten season.

God bless.
