Fr.Philip: He is a very good priest, who works with missionary zeal withhis ﬂock. He is very sensitive and very interested in effectively helpinghis ﬂock. He regularly celebrates the Liturgy and tries to develop theliturgical life of his parish. He is a successful preacher. Nevertheless heis very hesitant when it comes to the ascetic teaching of the Church, notout of objection, but out of ignorance regarding this side of ecclesiasticallife, and on account of the ideas he was moulded with both in theUniversity and the Sunday Schools.Athanasios: He is a person who relies more on reason. He aims at hisinner self-improvement through reasoning. And it is true that many timeshis strong mind has helped him in the past to avoid serious mistakes.Therefore, he stresses the importance of reason too much. He wasinvolved in many social and political organisations, even in religiouscommunities, having been frustrated by all of them. He has beenlearning about the Orthodox tradition lately and seeks to live it. Yet, hisgreatest problem is the priority he gives to reason, its deiﬁcation,absolutization, and autonomization on his part.Constantine: He has lived many years guided by his reason. Latelythough, he comprehended the great distortion which self deiﬁcation of reason causes to spiritual life. He has powerfully realised that theexcessive stressing of reason is a heretical state which does notconstitute an Orthodox life. It is the Barlaamite attitude of theinterpretation of spiritual life. He has studied psychology. He can judgepeople by their words and reactions and present their personality withgreat ease. He has a great thirst for the Orthodox Tradition, read a fewbooks and realised that the Holy Fathers see man and the world throughanother prism. He would like to attain this life. However, he isdreadfully prevented by his previous knowledge, as well as by his ownbackground: a tradition founded on reason. Nevertheless, he is drawn topatristic teaching and makes great attempts to live it.
