Vessel of Grace: The Life of Saint Paisios the Athonite


The Life of Saint Paisios the Athonite in English. Saint Paisios (1924-1994) is a contemporary saint in the Orthodox Church who lived most of his life as a monk and ascetic on Mount Athos. His life stands as a stark testimony against those who don't believe in God, much less in miracles. More importantly, he is a guiding light to the faithful.
