The Saints Among Us: From Paisie Olaru to Rafail Noica. Holy Fathers That I Met

The book has two parts: I. Studies regarding the Romanian Monachism; II. Portraits of the most prominent Fathers of the Romanian Orthodox Church

"Many thanks to the hard workers of Doxologia Publishing House of the Metropolitanate of Moldavia and Bukovina for the initiative and effort they made to gather in one volume, from various publications that appeared in Romanian or German, texts of orthodox spirituality and testimonies about Fathers that I met.

God called me to serve The Church in the West, where Orthodoxy is in minority and very little known.

"Many thanks to the hard workers of Doxologia Publishing House of the Metropolitanate of Moldavia and Bukovina for the initiative and effort they made to gather in one volume, from various publications that appeared in Romanian or German, texts of orthodox spirituality and testimonies about Fathers that I met.

God called me to serve The Church in the West, where Orthodoxy is in minority and very little known. But even so, the Orthodoxy fascinates lots of people there, mostly through the spirituality that the Liturgy and the icons reflect. And this is how it happened that in my nearly thirty years of ministry in the West, both as a priest and later on as a bishop, I was very often invited to present the orthodox spirituality to heterodox gatherings. Every time I had to take into consideration the audience that had very little or no knowledge of the Orthodox Church, so I had to present the topics in a simple and didactical form, not very common to the orthodox reader. But the afterwards debates have always had a pragmatic and intimate character, with concrete examples from the lives of some great Holy Fathers or even some common believers. The examples give more insight than the abstract teachings! But the theoretical knowledge of the faith is important so we won't fall into heresy or superstition" (Archbishop Serafim, fragment from the Introductory word)
