“The elder gave them (- the disciples) the cell of the holy Archangels, and he himself moved to a tiny“ hut ”, which he built at some distance from chestnut planks.
Every night, the Elder performed a vigil with countless bows and many prayers with the prayer rope. Prayer was his main business. He tried to never interrupt his connection with God through clever deeds. "
From the book "The Life of Elder Paisios the Holy Mountain" by Hieromonk Isaac
