Spiritual advices and exhortations of Father Dionysios from Colciu for the contemporary world and man

Some might interpret the teachings of Holy Father Dionysius Ignat from the Holy Mountain as an expression of traditionalism and excessive rigor, of a fundamentalism and an anachronic and retrograde religious extremism. But we have the firm conviction that these are the words of an authentic Abba, a spiritual Father, tested in the struggle against the moral evils, fully engaged in defending and proclaiming the ultimate truth, which is Christ. Therefore, his words are a testimony of the spiritual visionary and of the prophetic Christian. Similarly, we can consider him to be perhaps one of the last representatives of Orthodox authentic and traditional monasticism, a man who loved the tradition and the order, the silence and the obedience, the humble prayer and the reflection.
