Holy Serenity

      No Comments on Holy Serenity

When temptations arise, holy serenity observes their endless chatter without retaliation, knowing Christ endured the condemnations of officialdom with silence, choosing to abide in the holy realm of the Name, beyond this world.

Accused by heresy hunters, Hesychasts abide in stillness, rejoicing in uncreated glory, deaf to subtle taunts and insinuations, brushing the dust of wordy contentions from uncreated light, glorifying the hidden radiance of the hallowed Name.

When the world glories in itself, obscuring realms of heavenly wisdom in its worldly concerns, holy stillness stands steadfast in heavenly wisdom, silencing wordy worldliness with holy┬áserenity, adhering to wisdom’s glorification of God in his Name.
