I spent dozens of hours with this book, number 2 pencil in hand. The brother who suggested I read it must have liked it as well: he read it seven times. Yes, in my copy, no margin of white space has been safe, as now, notes abound. Wounded By Love first appeared in Greek in 2003, two years after this monk and priest died at the seasoned age of 85. The book was arranged by his students in two parts: his life and his sayings. His early father working out of country to support the family, Elder Porphyrios ran away from home to become a monk, trading work at a relative's corner store at age 12 for a life of prayer. He was raised on the holy mountain by two brother monks who, by providence, met him on the boat docks of Mt Athos. Telling a small lie, they broke the rules and were able to successfully sneak the young lad into that monastery in Kavsokalyvia. Dwelling in that small skete his two mentors were strict with this young boy, teaching him obedience and prayer.Read more ›
Another great read is "Elder Porphyrios Testimonies and Experiences"
Elder Porphyrios Testimonies and Experiences
Have you ever wanted to sit down and talk/listen to a holy elder? Well, here is your chance, since much of the book is in the elder's own words (written-down or tape-recorded). As one priest said (who personally knew him): "I cannot not speak about him." I very highly encourage anyone of any faith, or of no faith, to read this wonderful, spiritual book. Whoever does - his/her life will not be the same.
