'Blessed is the mind that, passing by all creatures, constantly rejoices in God's beauty.'
(Maximus the Confessor)
'The Jesus Prayer'
By Bishop Kallistos Ware (Author)
The Jesus Prayer is the most popular devotional prayer in the Orthodox Church and increasingly popular in the West. A simple and direct method of invoking the mercy of Jesus Christ by repeating his Holy Name, it is a way of obeying St Paul's instruction to "pray always". In an increasingly noisy and frenetic world, the Jesus Prayer offers us an oasis of inner peace and a lifeline back to God.
