Quotes from the Saints

Words of Salvation:

14.  It's better to have too little will-power than too much.  This way, we can better account for our deficiencies, while the man with too much will risks becoming lost in the trap of pride, of passing by God because he is so satisfied with himself.

15.  Above all, we should avoid pride.  This is our number one enemy.  It's because of pride that the angels fell.

16.  Progress in the spiritual life is measured more by a progressive detachment than by glorious personal acquisitions.  Like fr. Sophrony said, "Our enrichment consists in our impoverishment."

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.
