Quotes from the Saints

The Four Hundred Chapters on Love:

293.  On the one hand, the holy angels urge us on to the good, and natural tendencies and a good will assist us.  On the other hand, passions and an evil will support the assaults of the demons.

294.  Sometimes God himself lights on a pure mind and teaches it, sometimes the holy angels propose fine things, sometimes the nature of material reality is contemplated.

301.  The mind is first of all in wonder when it reflects on God's universal infinity and that inaccessible and greatly desired ocean.  Next is is amazed at how from nothing he has brought into existence everything that is.  But just as, "of his greatness there is no end," so is his wisdom unsearchable.

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.
