Wounded by Love by Elder Porphyrios.

Half of it is the autobiography of a boy that ran off to a mt. Athos at the start of the 20th century and his life long experience as a Christian monk. The second half of the text is writing about how to have a relationship with Christ, specifically focused on eros, and worship, pray, and labor in the spirit.

Elder Porphyrios. Half of his book, Wounded by Love by is the autobiography of a greek boy that ran off to a mount. Athos (The Holy Mountain) at the start of the 20th century and his life long experience as a Christian monk. The second half of the text is writing about how to have a relationship with Christ, specifically focused on eros, and worship, pray, and labor in the spirit. His laboring for Christ as a part of his spiritual practice and how carnal his spirituality is, is what stands out to me.

Here is a documentary on his life
