Quotes from the Saints

Words of Salvation:

75. Be on guard at all times that you do not listen to any bad thoughts.  Strive to push them away from the moment they appear, because once you have accepted them, they will return into words and deeds.

76. I feel very often that human possibility far exceeds the limits of this earthly life.

77. Humans have many gifts, most of which are hardly developed during this earthly life.  This is indeed a great waste.

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.
