- Our Work -

Saint Paul the Apostle Orthodox Monastery has an extensive catalog of beautifully crafted icons made in our workshop by monks and volunteers.

Each icon that we ship is crafted with love and obedience. Work in the monastery is a type of active prayer, as it is done for the sustenance of the community and for the glory of God. By choosing to shop from our monastery’s workshop, you are directly supporting Orthodox monasticism in America, an essential element of our church, especially in a market overwhelmed by for-profit ventures.

+ Saint Joseph the Hesychast Icon

We now have a new series of icons to offer you, and we are honored to begin the unveiling with this icon of our illustrious father, the new ascetic Saint Joseph the Hesychast. 

We often hear saints referred to as "new martyr," by way of indicating that they bore the same witness to Christ that those of the first centuries did. In the same way, it is fitting to refer to Saint Joseph as the "new ascetic." His remarkable life effectively nullifies the contemporary excuse that "people of our times are too weak to follow the spiritual practices of the Fathers of old." After he finished his earthly course in 1959, his influence, through his disciples with whom we lived and labored, initiated a tsunami of spiritual rejuvenation on Athos and throughout the world. 

And how did he accomplish this? What was the secret behind his miraculous life? No secret--he simply wanted God that much more than we do.
