A Quote by Bishop JOSEPHhttp://www.antiochianl on god, sacred, divine, purity, change, growth, spirituality, evil, mind, and love

In England, when people bow before the queen, they do so out of respect, but it does not imply any repentance.  But when we bow before Christ, it means that we are ready to empty ourselves from an evil mind, from any evil thought or act, or any evil thing in our lives.

A Quote by Bishop JOSEPHhttp://www.antiochianl on god, christianity, gospel, service, forgiveness, anger, love, people, world, and gratitude

We cannot serve anyone with whom we have animosity.  This is why the Gospels stress forgiveness.  Our Lord even forgave those who crucified Him, crying out from the cross, "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do." (Luke 23:34)  If we are to serve the world, we must first be able to forgive everyone and anyone.  The slightest amount of unforgiveness or anger towards anyone is enough to keep us from God, for in God there is only love.

A Quote by Bishop JOSEPHhttp://www.antiochianl on god, freedom, mercy, love, hope, joy, liberation, happiness, and peace transendence

The greatest freedom is to be obedient and faithful to God.  As we yield ourselves to God's love and mercy, we are liberated from the suffering of sins.  No longer are we dominated by unreasonable fears, compulsions and addictions.  We live in peace and unity with all people.  Despair and rage pass away.  Yet, these things only come when we bear the responsibilities for our own behavior, admitting our faults and receiving God's forgiveness.

A Quote by Bishop JOSEPHhttp://www.antiochianl on god, christianity, spirituality, sin, evil, good, victory, freedom, peace, and love

Sin, first and foremost, is the cause of every damage in this world. The evil one is the master of this sin, the master of this damage, but we have the Lord Jesus Christ, the Master of the Kingdom of God to defeat any kind of sin.

A Quote by Bishop JOSEPHhttp://www.antiochianl on god, christianity, unity, love, truth, sprituality, relationships, and peace

The unity of God the Father and Jesus Christ is a perfect unity, and this perfect unity is what our Lord calls us to have with one another. If we act in the name of God, then the proof of our motivations will be revealed in our unity. Endless arguing and bickering is a sign that God is absent and that we have forgotten Him. The contentious person is outside God's grace by his or her desires to dominate others.

A Quote by Bishop JOSEPHhttp://www.antiochianl on god, christianity, spirituality, hope, love, truth, peace, joy, good, and life

If we are to become filled with a joy that the world cannot take away, we must give up everything, even our own selfish lives, so that we can be alive in our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Our Lord teaches us that all things come from Him. He is the source of all good. If we follow Him, even in times of sorrow and hardship, He increases us by allowing us to participate in His divinity.

Your Father in Christ,

A Quote by Bishop JOSEPHhttp://www.antiochianl on god, christianity, evil, sacredness, good, truth, love, victory, and freedom

We do not suffer because there is too much godliness in the world, but because there is too much evil. We must overcome the evil around us with godliness, speaking the truth in love.

A Quote by Bishop JOSEPHhttp://www.antiochianl on god, christianity, service, true spirituality, truth, freedom, enlightenment, love, joy, and peace

All of us have been called to serve God. We do this in our families, our parishes and our secular jobs. We serve God when we serve one another. Our acts of kindness and generosity, our prayers for our loved ones and our enemies, are all offerings to God which He receives from us and uses for the benefit of all mankind.

A Quote by Bishop JOSEPHhttp://www.antiochianl on god, christianity, spirituality, health, forgiveness, silence, meditation, enlightenment, awareness, truth, and freedom

Just as we care for our bodies with good food and rest, so we must also care for our spiritual selves, that part of us that is connected to God. If we are spiritually ill, our bodies and minds also become sick. This is why regular prayer and times of silent contemplation are necessary parts of our daily lives. Periodically, we must also take extra measures of self-examination and learning, that we might be ever-perfected in the grace of the infinite and perfect God.

Search your hearts and minds for the spiritual wounds of unforgiveness and fear, which are atheistic and unchristian, and repent of them so that you might be healed by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Your Father in Christ,
