Quotes from the Saints

The Four Hundred Chapters on Love:

13.  The one who loves God cannot help but love also every man as himself even though he is displeased by the passions of those who are not yet purified.  Thus when he sees their conversion and amendment, he rejoices with an unbounded and unspeakable joy.

18.  Blessed is the man who is not attached to any corruptible or transitory thing.

23.  The one who loves God surely loves his neighbor as well.  Such a person cannot hold on to money but rather gives it out in God's fashion to each one who has need.

St. Maximus the Confessor

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.

Daily Readings >

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.
