Metropolitan Kallistos Ware on the Jesus Prayer

The Jesus Prayer

Of all the lectures either in person or recorded offered by Metropolitan Kallistos Ware, this interview is gold. Sharing it here with our parish and friends because I believe what Ware says is important for the spiritual life.

Spotlight Quote: “What do we mean by ‘silence’? It can be thought of negatively: just a pause between words, an absence of noise. And in that case, it is something negative and empty. But silence can also be understood in a positive way: not just as ceasing to speak, but beginning to listen.”

The interview begins around 7min.
