by Bishop Ignatius Brianchaninov
with Introduction and “The Prayer Rope” by an exiled Athonite monk

“The Jesus Prayer, ‘O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner,’ is one of the most ancient prayers of the Christian Faith, being an amplification of the cry of the publican in the parable which Christ related to His disciples (Luke 18: 13-14). In this our merciful Savior has provided his followers with an example of a penitential prayer which justifies the one who uses its words with sincerity. Bishop ignatius (Brianchaninov) was among the first spiritual writers to stress the Christian antiquity of the Jesus Prayer. His exposition on its proper use and effects is founded firmly on the teachings embodied in The Philokalia, the renowned compilation of the works of the ancient ascetic writers and later hesychast authors, the purpose of which is to lead its readers to theoria, the true contemplation of the Godhead in Its divine energies.”
