... Each person will be registered; not only every facet of his affairs and his life, but his every word, every movement of his mental faculties will be under constant surveillance so that he will lose the habit of thinking for himself out of fear that the expression on his face might involuntarily reflect something incompatible with the authority of the world ruler, i.e., Antichrist. Everyone will wear "stone masks." All labor, every square inch of ground, every grain of wheat will be under the authority of Antichrist...~ excerpt from the book
"Brother, I have no past....." Thus begins a quiet meditation (introduced by a stunning prophecy from the Monk Basil, who collected the work) on what it means to live as a Christian. No scare tactics, no heavy-handed asceticism are to be found here, in reflections just as suited to a busy worker in the marketplace as to a desert monk. Everything leads to the words with which the manuscript breaks off: "Thou art eternal God, Holy Spirit, and we -- by Thy love will live for eternity, while all else is but a dream, a river flowing by."
