A Quote by Saint Tikon of Zadonsk on god, christianity, heaven, heart, mercy, conscience, love, sin, compassion, and gratitude

It is demanded of us, Christians, that we receive these heavenly and most sweet tidings {the Gospel} gratefully as they are sent from Heaven, and that from a pure heart we always give thanks to God our Benefactor,  Who so freely had mercy on us, and that we show holy obedience and compliance in all thankfulness.  For conscience itself instructs and convinces us to be thankful to our Benefactor.  He loved us who are unworthy.  Let us also love Him Who is worthy of all love.  Love requires that we never offend the beloved.  God is offended by every sin.  Let us keep away from every sin and let us do His holy will that we may not offend Him as our compassionate Father and Benefactor.

Saint Tikon of Zadonsk

A Quote by Saint Innocent Apostle to America on god, christianity, love, suffering, mercy, gratitude, virtue, sin, good, thanksgiving, and debt

For whom did Jesus suffer?  For all sinners, from Adam till the end of the world.  He suffered also for those very men who tortured Him, and for His enemies who had delivered Him to that torture, and for those who, having received from Him countless benefits, not only did not thank Him but even hated and persecuted Him.  He also suffered for all of us who offend Him daily by our untruths, wickedness, and terrible indifference to His suffering for us who by our ingratitude and abominable sins, as it were, crucify Him a second time.

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.

Bishop Joseph

Christ, invisible to the bodily eye, manifests Himself on earth clearly through His Church ... The Church is the Body of Christ both because its parts are united to Christ through His divine mysteries and because through her Christ works in the world.

We all have handicaps. The difference is that some of us must reveal ours,
while others must conceal theirs, to be treated with mercy. -Yahia

A Quote by Carl Edward Sagan on animals, mercy, and fairness

Humans - who enslave, castrate, experiment on, and fillet other animals - have an understandable penchant for pretending animals do not feel pain..  A sharp distinction between humans and "animals" is essential is we are to bend them to our will, wear them, eat them - without any disquieting tinges of guilt or regret.

Carl Sagan (1934 - 1996)
