Blessed Elder Philotheos Zervakos (1884—1980): Remarkable Confessor and Spiritual Guide, Vigorous Defender of the Orthodox Christian Faith, Itinerant Preacher, Illuminating Writer, and for half a century Abbot of the Holy Monastery of Longovarda on Paros. A comprehensive account of his Life, Character, Thought, and Works.
“I first met Father Philotheos Zervakos in Athens in 1952. We met at the offices of 'Astir' Publishing Company, which had published several of his books. Alexandros Papademetriou, president of this publishing house, introduced me to him. What particularly impressed me as we sat down by a round table in the bookstore of 'Astir' at 10 Lycourgou Street, near Omonoia Square, was his sheer presence and the way he spoke. He radiated great kindness and gentleness, serenity and a quiet cheerfulness. His speech was wholly untainted by affectation, anger, bitterness, anxiety, or other passion.” —“Chapter 1: My Meetings with Blessed Philotheos”
