Saint Silouan

A Quote by Saint Silouan of Mt. Athos on love, god, peace, hatred, enemies, hearts, hope, freedom, spirit, and soul

"Peace in our souls is impossible unless we beg the Lord with all our hearts to give us love for all men.  The Lord knew if we did not love our enemies, we should have no peace of soul, and so He gave us the Commandment, 'Love your enemies.'  Unless we love our enemies, we shall only now and then be easy, as it were, in our souls; but if we love our enemies, peace will dwell in us day and night."

A Quote by Saint Silouan of Mt. Athos on god, christianity, spirituality, happiness, truth, awakening, enlightenment, humility, and peace

But to be saved, we must humble ourselves, for the proud man, even were he to be set down in Paradise would not find peace there but would be discontent, and say, "Why am I not up in the front rank?"  But the humble soul is filled with love and does not seek to be in the foreground.  The humble soul wishes good things to all men, and in all things is content.
