Quotes from the Saints

The Sayings

Follow your path and do not worry about anything.  Keep your ears open and do not be impatient.  Many years must go by and we must be tested before acquiring Patience.

Those who love can do only beautiful things.

I know that behind everything and behind all, is His will.  May it be fulfilled, because It is always better than anything else our little selves can wish or imagine.

If an injustice of man to man is done, remember this could not happen if the doer had no power from Above.  Therefore find the answer to your being neglected in your own self.

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.
