Quotes from the Saints

Everything is this vain world will pass.  The world and life are a fair, and each person can buy eternal life with the "money" of his life.  How wise is the person who spends his money - his life - buyting whatever he will need for the hour of death and the tribunal of God!  Let us buy precious thins that are pleasing to the great King; confession, humility, purity of soul and body from carnal sins, godly love, and keeping ourselves far from critizing others, idle talk, lying, etc.  When we master all this, we shall be wealthy in God's blessed land.

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.
