Quotes from the Saints

The Sayings

We must not surrender to His will.  This is what soldiers do.  We, who are His children, must offer Him our own will along with all our being - in whatever pitiful state we may be - and tell him:  <Lord, take all my faults and imperfections and set them right.>

Do not deny others the crumbs falling off your table from the Bread of Life which is given to you whole by the Lord.  So many hunger and thirst for Love, like Lazarus who fed on the crumbs falling off the table of the rich man.

Love alone is enough to make a miracle happen.  Neither Prayer nor the Komboskini (Prayer rope) have such power.

Mother Gavrilia

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.

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.
