This is a biography of Elder Ieronymous the Cappadocian of Aegina, one of the two great Elders of the Jesus Prayer in the 20th century in Greece, the other being the Elder Joseph the Hesychast of the Holy Mountain. Both were very strong in the interior prayer of the heart. They were contemporaries and knew each other.
Elder Ieronymos moved to Greece from Asia Minor during the Catastrophe of Asia Minor in 1922, two years after the repose of St Nektarios and settled in Aegina where he build 3 churches.
The Elder would spend 14 hours in deep continuous prayer. He was a serious man of few words. His utterances were like saying of the Dessert Fathers - a few words with much depth, chiselled in stone. -- Introduction
