Quotes from the Saints

On Feeling Tired:

They ask me if I get tired seeing so many persons in one day...  I will tell you why it does not tire me.  Because it is the greatest variety in my life.  In a single day, I become twelve persons.  Someone comes and I am gone: I become that person.  Isn't that wonderful!  He speaks and I listen and we talk about his life.  So, I am gone;  I do not exist...  I listen, and listen, and listen.  Then he leaves and somebody else comes.  The same thing happens again.  Do you know what a great thing it is?  To be twelve persons?  It is a great miracle!  I do not know how to explain it.  But it is so.  We talk of God, all the time.  Can you get tired?  You can never get tired.

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.
