Quotes from the Saints

Words of Salvation:

89. Every night examine your conscience, bringing to mind all your sins from during the day, and then repent of all of them.

92. When we pray, we shouldn't seek after that satisfying, joyful state that so often accompanies prayer.  If these things do not come when we pray, we shouldn't long after them or become preoccupied by such feelings.  Rather, we must persevere in prayer, even if we never get any feelings of joy or satisfaction.  We must seek after God, not our own happiness.

93.  Prayer is like a light that illumines everything and which allows us to see more clearly into our own souls.

Elder Sergei of Vanves

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.
