His Grace, Bishop George of Mayfield, was kind enough to pass along the following for inclusion on this blog:
During this past season of Great Lent (2010), the monastery was blessed with a three-day visit of the well-known Moscow Archpriest Artemy Vladimirov, pastor of the Church of All Saints in Krasnoselsk. Fr. Artemy is known to the English speaking Orthodox work for his wonderful children's books, including The Path to Confession, and also for several interviews conducted with him in the journal Road to Emmaus. On a quiet and beautiful Sunday afternoon, he spoke in our church to the brotherhood and pilgrims on the practice of the Jesus Prayer and how to effectively implement this ancient practice into our busy lives.
Many people have requested a copy of this very interesting spiritual monologue. We have prepared the audio file, which you may listen to or download free of charge from the following page:
Talk on the Jesus Prayer by Fr. Artemy Vladimirov
We hope that you will be edified and spiritually strengthened by Fr. Artemy's words. We ask you to remember us in your prayers and we request your financial help during the difficult summer months when the work of building the monastery overwhelms our small monthly budgets. Please consider making a donation today to the Hermitage of the Holy Cross.
