Saint Hesychios of Jerusalem on Spiritual Warfare

“We should always be turning the Name of Jesus Christ round the spaces of our heart, as lightning circles round the skies before rain. This is well known by those who have spiritual experience in inner warfare. Let us conduct this mental war in the following order. The first thing is attention; then when we notice a wicked thought draw near, let us wrathfully hurl a heart-felt curse at it. The third thing is to turn the heart to the invocation of Jesus Christ and pray Him to disperse forthwith this phantom of the demons, lest the mind run after this fantasy like a child attracted by a skillful juggler.”

Synaxarion – Saint Hesychios of Jerusalem 

Saint Hesychios was a priest-monk in the church of Jerusalem, renowned in the Church as a theologian, biblical commentator, and preacher. He taught against the Arian heresy, and his writings on the true nature of Christ were incorporated into the second Council of Constantinople in 553. Hesychios is credited with the earliest known liturgical address on the Theotokos, annotated the whole of sacred Scripture, and wrote a history of the Church. Most of his writings have been lost, but scholars are identifying more of his works hidden within Greek manuscripts and Latin translations.  

“Immediately they left their nets and followed him.” Hearing the call, Peter, Andrew, James and John left one calling to become fishers of men. The life of prayer and devotion in monasticism and holy orders is a special way to live this calling. Is Christ calling you or someone you know to do the same?
