Our Thoughts Determine Our Lives: The Life and Teachings of Elder Thaddeus of Vitovnica

   
Compiled by the St. Herman of Alaska Brotherhood
Translated by Ana Smiljanic

“Elder Thaddeus of Vitovnica was one of the foremost elders of twentieth-centry Serbia. His counsels comforted thousands of people, especially during the dark days of Communism in Serbia, when every attempt was made to mock and undermine the Christian Faith. His words of peace, humility, and love were disseminated in the form of typewritten photocopies, cassette recordings, and through the testimony of his many spiritual children. [...]Although few people in the West have heard of Elder Thaddeus, his words and life provide essential insights for our times. He understood the extent to which the philosophy of the modern age has wreaked devastation on the soul of man: through war, environmental destruction and, most importantly, man’s turning away from God. Elder Thaddeus saw that the only cure for man’s illness was a return to a life centered on Christ the God-man, the only One Who can fulfill all of mankind’s needs.”
