Mount Athos—also known as the “Holy Mountain” and the “Garden of the Panagia”—is the spiritual center of Orthodox Christianity. For more than a thousand years, this sacred peninsula in northeastern Greece has been home to monks, hermits, and countless grace-filled saints. In Sweet-scented Journey, the reader is presented with a treasury of insights direct from the Holy Mountain itself. With wit, concision, and profound simplicity, the monks and elders quoted in this volume address a host of important topics ranging from patience and prayer, humility and repentance, passions and forgiveness, to marriage and children, judgment and salvation, love for the Holy Mother and God’s love for us.

Whether you have already made the pilgrimage to the Holy Mountain or are simply an interested inquirer, Sweet-scented Journey will make you smile and think as it nourishes the soul and speaks directly to the heart.

    Published by Joseph on Mar 22nd 2024

    This is a book that has immense value to all Orthodox Christians and should be purchased. It contains timeless and practical advice for both our life in this world and to attain salvation. It is also one of the most aesthetically pleasing texts that NRP has produced to date, which is no small feat.
