We Shall See Him as He Is


“Now at the close of my life I have decided to talk to my brethren of things I would not have ventured to utter earlier, counting it unseemly….” Thus wrote Archimandrite Sophrony, then ninety-two years old, in We Shall See Him as He Is, his spiritual autobiography. In this book, Fr. Sophrony, reveals his own experience of union with God, and the path to that union.

Saint Sophrony the Athonite

Saint Sophrony, started his monastic life on Mount Athos. His acquaintance with Saint Silouan became the landmark of his life. He lived as a cenobitic monk at St Panteleimon’s monastery and later as a hermit in the caves of Karoulia. After twenty two years on the Holy Mountain, he travelled to Paris for medical treatment, where he served as a parish priest. In 1959, he founded our monastery in Essex, England, where he served as the abbot and spiritual father. Towards the end of his life he withdrew to live once more as a recluse. Read more…

    This book completely changed my life. Saint Sophrony’s words on prayer and repentance hit me so deeply that it has changed my views on many things. His words are sweet, deep and penetrate the soul with the unavoidable truth of repentance and humility as the path to true enlightenment in Christ. This is a book that I will revisit many, many times. Not to mention the book itself is beautifully made and bound.
