Could you please recommend me the best readings on the Prayer of Jesus, especially those written by the Elders of the Mount Athos? Thank you!

No, unfortunately! Though I have recently started learning it (so that I can read the New Testament in original). But I can read Latin, as well as French, German, or Spanish (it would be great if you could suggest texts written or translated in these languages). I explored some French writings of Irenee Hausherr SJ on hesychasm a few years ago.
