QuotationFirst I want to thank you for your kindness in sending me the mimeograph of P. Hausherr's study on Hesychasm. It is really excellent and I profited much by reading it. I was able to use some of the material with the novices and now I have one of the young professed translating it. We will mimeograph the English translation and I think it will do a great deal of good in our American houses.
