Wounded by Love: The Life and the Wisdom of Elder Porphyrios

   
edited from an archive of notes and recordings by the Sisters of the Holy Convent of Chrysopigi

“The contents of this book come from an archive of notes and recordings compiled by two women who knew Elder Porphyrios for a period of more than three decades. Throughout this time they kept a record of his conversations, his reminiscences and his words of spiritual guidance. When, some ten years after the elder’s death, these two women became nuns at the convent of Chrysopigi in Chania in western Crete, the archive was placed at the disposal of the convent. Under the guidance of the abbess of the community, Mother Theoxeni, the material that had been collected was carefully transcribed and edited in such a way as to allow Elder Porphyrios to speak for himself. The prime concern was to present the words exactly as spoken, preserving their immediacy and authenticity. At the same time, however, the material, often collected at very diverse times and in different contexts, was arranged into chapters according to subject matter in order to make it more accessible.”
