Philokalia: “Love of the Beautiful”
A blog on desert asceticism by Fr David Abernethy of the Pittsburgh Oratory. John Cassian transmitted the doctrine of the Desert Fathers and Evagrius Pontus to the Latin world and was read tirelessly by western monastics and other spiritually serious Western Christians, including St. Philip Neri. These writings are the legacy we receive from the Fathers and our study of them fidelity to the Church’s call over the past fifty years to return to the sources (ressourcement) of the patristic tradition.

St Philip Neri’s intention was “to make men saints in their own homes.” Authors David Clayton and Leila Marie Lawler show you how to bring peace to your home by integrating your family into the calm, truly joyful way of the Church. Her feasts and seasons, prayers and devotions are gifts that draw us closer to God and unfold before us his plan of salvation. To help you live the liturgical life of the Church more fully, David and Leila reclaim here an almost lost tradition that families used for centuries to build a bridge between home and church: the little oratory. You’ll find countless tips to help you practice your faith in the heart of your home.
