I started praying the Jesus Prayer over a year ago and then I read, “The Way of the Pilgrim.” Now I am interested in reading the Philokalia.
A little background: I am 29 years old, and am a wife and mother of five children. I am a Catholic in the Latin Rite and have been an active catholic my whole life. I really began to struggle with my prayer life after having kids, and then I gave the Jesus prayer a try and I have had a breakthrough of sorts. The little I have heard and read about the spirituality of the East has really brought about a great consolation for me in my vocation. I am a regular listener of the “Light of the East,” podcast. I have a few questions
1: where can I get a good copy of the Philokalia
2: where can I buy a good quality Chotki?
3: Any advice for this Latin rite Catholic on exploring this Spirituality?
4: what are some good books and resources for me to look into to learn more?
Thank you and God Bless!
