The story about a man who seeks God. Jozue, a 40-year-old monk, leaves his monastery to take care of a dying hermit. Disappointed with people, he decides to take the man’s place in order to finish an iconostas started by the hermit. ‘Metanoia’ – from Greek means repentance, spiritual evolution, the process of ascetic moral amendment. ‘Attrition’, strictly speaking, that is a revolution in ‘nous’ which means conscience or a mind as a place where the whole human existence integrates. The point that can open or close to God and other people. In ascesis, ‘nous’ is very close to a ‘heart’. Metanoia transforms ‘the heart from stone’ into ‘the heart from flesh’.
