Fr. Rafail (a direct disciple of St. Sophrony the Athonite) lives a secluded life in the Romanian mountains. In this video he talks about the strength of prayer in today's world, why it is so difficult to pray, quoting St. Sophrony (Sakharov): "If you want to pray, know that you are like a molecule of water in a frozen ocean, a molecule that does not want to freeze together with the ocean."
