Quotes from the Saints

Words of Salvation:

100.  Avoid intellectual speculation, which so often does not concern your personal eschatology.  In the next life, these speculations will be of no use.  This is why simple people are normally more successful in the spiritual life than the intellectuals.

103.  We must have a sharp conscience, so that every night we can examine ourselves and what we did during the course of the day and see what we did wrong, what good we failed to do, and what we did poorly.  Then, we should ask God's forgiveness for all these things.

104.  Always judge your thoughts and discern where they have come from: from God or from the devil.  Vigorously and without any discussion, flee from all those thoughts which come from the devil.  If you have given yourself over to sin, repent and ask God's forgiveness.  Never let yourself remain in a state of sin and just give yourself over to whatever might come.

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.
