Quotes from the Saints

Anthology on Noetic Prayer

From time to time it happens that, without your being at fault, grace withdraws.  It is as if God were saying to you, "All your works are fine, but do not think that everything depends on you.  I shall come and go as I see fit, to teach you to completely cut off your will and to be patient, so that you learn the lesson of humility well."

Elder Ephraim from the Holy Mountain

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.
