A Collection of Letters to Nuns

by the Optina Elder and Director of the Skete, Hieroscemamonk Anatoly
Published in Russian by the Kozelsk Optina Hermitage of the Entry of the Theotokos, Holy Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra Press, 1910
Translated by Holy Nativity Convent

“These letters to nuns which we offer to the reader’s attention were written by the Optina Elder, Director of the Skete and Confessor, Father Hieroscemamonk Anatoly, a contemporary, disciple, and friend of the Elder Father Hieroschemamonk Amvrosy. [...]Father Anatoly’s letters teach the knowledge and love of God; they clarify the lofty goal of the Christian and the monastic life; they provide encouragement in the struggle of battling against passions and weaknesses; they teach the Prayer of Jesus; and in general they contain many useful lessons for anyone seeking the spiritual life. Thus we think that not only Father Anatoly’s former spiritual children, for whom each word of their unforgettable Batiushka is holy and precious, but also all[...]nuns will read Father Anatoly’s letters with joy and with great benefit to their souls, and make them their handbook alongside the works of the Fathers and Teachers of the Faith and of Christian life.”
