Author: Archimandrite Gerasim
“…A monk like me, fleeing the glory of men, will come and live on Spruce Island.”
—St. Herman of Alaska
This prophecy was fulfilled 100 years later in the person of Father Gerasim (1888–1969), who lived a hermitic way of life on Spruce Island, Alaska, for 30 years, praying alone for the world. His standard was Christianity of the heart.
FATHER GERASIM OF NEW VALAAM includes a preliminary Life of this righteous confessor, together with selections from his letters and three of his articles, all of which are largely autobiographical. From his words there emerges a warm, loving and endearing man, close to God’s creation. At the same time, we see him as a bearer of the holy tradition of Optina Monastery, a true knower of God to whom contact with the other world was a common reality.
