Quotes from the Saints

The Four Hundred Chapters on Love:

259.  When you overcome any of the dishonorable passions, such as gluttony, fornication, anger, or covetousness, suddenly the though of vanity lights upon you.  But when you overcome this, that of pride follows in short order.

262.  Discreet practice eliminates vainglory; ascribing our right actions to God removes pride.

263.  A person who has been honored with the knowledge of God and is abundantly enjoying the pleasure it provides disdains all the pleasures begotten from lust.

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.
