Theosis - the Answer to "What is Life?"

Hat Tip to Orrologion for pointing to a true spiritual treasure, the concise and wonderfully precise little book entitled "Theosis: The True Purpose of Human Life" by Archimandrite George, Abbot of the Holy Monastery of St. Gregorios, Mount Athos.

Note that the Orthodox Christian Information Center is a great source for very traditional Orthodox Christian teaching on a variety of subjects. While decidedly anti-Catholic, there is much on the site that is supremely beneficial to all Eastern Christians - witness the very book in question.

Stop reading this and go read what Achrimandrite George has to say; you'll be blessed that you did!

Thanks so much for this link! I'm enjoying reading it.

It is sometimes difficult to get past the references to why some part of Roman Catholicism is not true. Thank you for the 'warning'.
