The Ineffable Joy of Unceasing Prayer and the Thoughts that lead to Sadness


This is a video of Elder Thaddeus who addresses some of the important themes we have been discussing in the Philokalia Study Group. In particular the link between prayer and guarding the nous. He also begins to speak of the clarity of vision that belongs to one who has purified the nous through prayer and the kind of sadness/depression that can afflict those who are inattentive to their thoughts.
