In my search for a Christian identity, I studied the Eastern traditions a little bit. What I found interesting was the tradition of Hesychasm, the Philokalia and the Jesus Prayer.
The Jesus Prayer is pretty straightforward and easy to apply. Hesychasm is pretty cool; though I think it’s inapplicable outside a monastery. IMHO. The Philokalia I like as well; though it doesn’t seem compatible with Catholic traditions.
I’m wondering if anyone else out there, especially our Eastern Rite Catholics; thinks of our Eastern lung, what draws you and what our Eastern brethren can bring to the table.
God bless you all
