A precious collection of the wisdom of the saints in memorable sayings saturated in grace.


The Desert Fathers lived in silence, fasting, and prayer, and found hesychia—the deep inner stillness that leads the soul to spiritual peace and perfect union with God. Concentrating their entire being within, they made their heart heaven and lived paradise on earth, the Lord dwelling with them. They left us their sayings as guides so that we could follow their footprints to the priceless peace found only in God.
