The Pedagogy of GraceFather Maximos (Constas)
In this three part series Father Maximos (Constas) seeks to stimulate his students desire for God and holiness by intimately examining the spiritual experience of two saints: Ss. Symeon the New Theologian and Silouan the Athonite. Though separated by more than a millennium in time, these two saints share a very common experience of grace. Fr. Maximos searchingly penetrates into the spiritual lives of these saints by placing special emphasis upon their common experience of dereliction, or the loss of grace. Through this lens one is able to understand the supreme importance that the Lord God places upon the acquisition of humility as the prerequisite to spiritual attainment.
