Synopsis:
His colleagues at the Theological Academy of Sibiu named himThe Saint by; he is considered a founding father of the Romanian Philokalia by father Dumitru Staniloaie, who thought of him as an unparalleled phenomenon of Romanian monasticism; sought after and followed by thousands of believers eager to quench their spiritual thirst from his inexhaustible spring of serenity; legendary for his prophesying and healing gifts, painter of souls and painter of churches, man of culture, philosopher of sciences and religion, father Arsenie Boca was, just like Saint Basil as depicted by him in his essential work The Path of the Kingdom: a disciple calmly walking across the stormy seas, an unmoving pillar against the troubled waves, a man among people, providing guidance and strength with otherworldly serenity, unflinching in the belief that God alone is ruler of our world. An unequaled personality, a magnet for thousands of people in all walks of life, and also a target for suspicion for the authorities of his day, who failed to understand the source of his exceptional power to gather people around him.
Synopsis:
Numit Sfântul de catre colegii sai de la Academia Teologica din Sibiu, considerat ctitor al Filocaliei românesti de catre parintele profesor Dumitru Staniloaie, care îl aprecia ca un fenomen unic al monahismului românesc, cautat si urmat de mii de mireni doritori a se împartasi din izvorul nesecat si senin al spiritualitatii sale, dar si pentru legendarele sale haruri de prooroc si tamaduitor, veritabil pictor de suflete dar si sensibil pictor de biserici, om de cultura si filosof al stiintelor si religiei, preotul Arsenie Boca, a fost asemenea sfântului Vasile, asa cum chiar el îl înfatiseaza în lucrarea sa de capatâi Cararea împaratiei: ucenic umblând linistit pe marea înfuriata, stâlp nemiscat de talazuri, om între oameni întarindu-si semenii în linistea cea mai presus de fire, neclintit în credinta ca tot Dumnezeu este la cârma lumii. O personalitate unica, ce atragea ca un magnet mii de oameni, din toate categoriile sociale, dar si permanenta suspiciune a autoritatilor vremii care nu puteau întelege de unde vine acea forta exceptionala de a-i face pe oameni sa se adune în jurul sau.
