There is the Little Russian Philokalia (vo. 1) on St. Seraphim, there are also a couple of other books here that would be good reads.

This is the one you want. It was written by Fr. Lazarus Moore and is just wonderful. My copy is currently making the rounds of my parish and I think I need to get another copy!

Thank you for your replies, I'll have to get both of them. In my Catholic book of Saints, the author has included St.Seraphim of Sarov, and ever since I've heard of him, I feel like I'm being followed around by this great Saint. *giggle* so I'll have to return the favor and follow him around to see what he is all about.

Thank you and God bless

I have got the book. the little russian philokalia. I shall do my best never to part with it. Devotion to this great Saint brings me much comfort. His instruction as certainly been helping me in my quest for the transcendant lover of mankind. Thank you for all your prayers and advice.

God bless
