"One who sets out on the path of true life after Repentance and Communion should instill peace within himself. Rules for dispersing inner disturbance: unceasing remembrance of God, a resolve to act according to one's conscience in every matter great or small and patient expectation of success."
This book is a collection of letters to one of his spiritual children, a young woman of Moscow society who, while at an annual ball, was struck by the thought of the immortality of the soul and the futility of everything around her at the ball, and began the correspondence with then-Bishop Theophan.
Wonderful practical advice for anyone trying to grow in their Christian life.
