St. Peter of Damascus (Peter Damascene)

St. Peter of Damascus (Peter Damascene)
Peter Damascene is the Treasury of divine knowledge
The Byzantine Monk and Spiritual Theologian,

St.Peter of Damascus writes of three types of monasticism: communal, skite-dwelling, and eremitic.

He recommends the use of imageless prayer and frequent repetition of short prayers. His theology is not systematic, and he gives advice for practicing the ascetical life, a life open to all.

St.Peter of Damascus’steaching aims to meet the contingencies of life.
By grounding theology in spiritual practice, and theological insight into human life, St. Peter of Damascus exemplifies the traditional mode of Orthodox theology.
in his treasury, earlier Orthodox doctrines are recapitulated in such a way as to make the riches of theory and discipline generally available.

St.Peter of Damascus has stated the following:
“There is no object, no activity or place in the whole of creation that can prevent us from becoming what god from the beginning wished us to be:
 that is to say according to his image and likeness, god by adoption  through grace, dispassionate, just, good and wise, whether we are rich or poor, married or unmarried, in authority and free or under obedience and in bondage- in short, whatever our time, place or activity.”
 the prayer of St. Peter of Damascus with you all

Revive the spirit to the unused old churches

One of key tasks within the mission of Monastic of Orthodox Patristic church, that is to reviving the Spirit into unused old churches, especially in the rural areas in Sweden and Scandinavia.

Where many of this wonderful buildings became just a historical buildings (stones without spirit), it became to be just a historical photos, and ancient buildings reflects to events in the past ages
Our task is to bring again the Spirit to these Churches and their communities,
These churches have been built in order to give glory to the Lord, not to be just historical remembrances or ancient places.

We want to re-confirm that these buildings are houses of God and the path to the heavenly kingdom.

We want to re-place this true conception to the meaning of the church in the right context.
