Quotes from the Saints

"You must look after the purification of your soul on a daily basis.  Do your spiritual work and say the Jesus prayer.  Your thoughts, will and desires are where your mind is.  The submission of our spirit is the most important thing.  In order to acquire a virture, we must be humble and careful, so we can detect its opposite evil, and then pray to Christ to help us get rid of it.  We don't need to try too hard or be concerned how, when and in what way our heart will be able to acquire this virtue."

Elder (Saint) Paisios of 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.
