The teachings of the Saints Varsanufie and John, comprise the entire spectrum of the spiritual life. They inspired other ecclesiastic writers who later appeared and at their turn, got inspired from the writings and teachings of the great parents and Christian believers. The letters of Varsanufie and John describe man’s possibility of cleaning himself from the tar of the sins, of becoming nobler and wiser, through the communion with God.
