Prayer of Elder Joseph the Hesychast: Lord of mercy Look upon my humility and forgive all my sins

Lord Jesus Christ, sweetest Father, God and

Lord of mercy, and Creator of the entire universe:

Look upon my humility and forgive all my sins

which I have committed all the years of my life up

to this very day and hour. Send forth Thine All-

Holy Spirit, the Comforter, so that He may teach,

illuminate, and safegaurd me so that I no longer

sin, so that with a pure soul and heart I may adore,

worship, glorify, thank, and love Thee with all my

soul and heart, my sweetest Savior, Benefactor, and

God, Who is worthy of all love and worship.

Yes, good eternal Father, co-eternal Son,

and All-Holy Spirit, count me worthy of enlightenment

and divine spiritual knowledge, so that by beholding

Thy sweet grace I may bear the burden of this vigil

tonight, and render unto Thee my prayers and

thanksgiving, through the intercessions of the

Most Holy Theotokos and all the Saints. Amen.

Elder Joseph the Hesychast

Elder Joseph the Hesychast or Spileot was born in 1898 in the village of Lefkes on the Paros Island in Greece. He had been chosen to serve God since he was in his mother’s womb. He lost his father when he was very young, and his mother, who was very pious, took care of his education. Since his family was very poor, the young Frances, (that was his name before he took monastic vows), had to labour from a very early age in order to provide the necessary things for the survival of his family.

Holy Monastery of Hilandar: the Serbian Monastery of Mount Athos with Panagia Tricherousa and Galaktotrofousa

The name of the Monastery probably comes from the founder of the oldest monastery in the area, the hermit Grigorios Helandaris. Around 980 AD the monk Grigorios built, together with other monks, a small church and a small house, on the site where the Monastery is today. According to tradition, there is also the interpretation that the name of the Monastery is based on the etymology of the word "helandio" which is the Byzantine ship.
