This classic of world spiritual literature is the firsthand account of a pilgrim's journey as he endeavors to live out Saint Paul's instruction to "pray without ceasing." The narrator, an unnamed nineteenth-century peasant, sets out on his pilgrimage with nothing but a Bible, a rosary, and some dried bread. As he walks, he recites the Jesus prayer ("Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me")-a prayer that is said to quiet anxiety and fill the heart with love for all creation. With this prayer constantly on his lips, the pilgrim undergoes a profound spiritual education. This edition includes the sequel toThe Way of a Pilgrim,entitledA Pilgrim Continues His Way,which contains a lengthy appendix reviewing the teachings of the Holy Fathers on the Jesus prayer.Savin, Olga is the author of 'Way of a Pilgrim and the Pilgrim Continues His Way', published 2001 under ISBN 9781570628078 and ISBN 1570628076.
