Quotes from the Saints

On Faith, Hope, and Patience

Let us bear everything patiently, that we may gain the God of all.  When we patiently bear sufferings, immediately the future blessings are confirmed.  When we are deprived of the joy of this world, then without a doubt, we store up the joy of God in our immortal soul.  It is impossible not to enjoy with an everlasting recompense the good which we are deprived of here!

Let us give a little here on earth so as to receive it with interest from the impregnable treasury of the gifts of God.  Let us sow the seeds of virtue so that we may crown our heads with most fragrant flowers in a crown of eternal glory.

Elder Ephraim from the Holy Mountain

St. Michael Orthodox Church is part of the Diocese of Eastern Pennsylvania, which is presided over by The Most Reverend Mark (Maymon), Archbishop of Philadelphia and Eastern Pennsylvania. Our mission is bringing the joy of Christ's resurrection to those who have never heard the Good News, and to strengthen and encourage the faithful who reside within Old Forge and the local area. 

More Information >

The Holy Scripture is a collection of books written over multiple centuries by those inspired by God to do so. It is the primary witness to the Orthodox Christian faith, within Holy Tradition and often described as its highest point. It was written by the prophets and apostles in human language, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and collected, edited, and canonized by the Church.

Holiness or sainthood is a gift (charisma) given by God to man, through the Holy Spirit. Man's effort to become a participant in the life of divine holiness is indispensable, but sanctification itself is the work of the Holy Trinity, especially through the sanctifying power of Jesus Christ, who was incarnate, suffered crucifixion, and rose from the dead, in order to lead us to the life of holiness, through the communion with the Holy Spirit.
