Quotes from the Saints

When someone patiently endures temptations, difficult situations and problems, God provides him with the best solutions.  Therefore, we must always be obedient and humble ourselves; that is to say, endure everything, hoping for the grace of God to function in our lives.  This is why instead of taking action, we wait for God to act on our behalf.

Elder (Saint) Paisios of the Holy Mountain

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.
