A Quote by Gerontissa Makrina on god, christianity, forgiveness, peace, love, spirituality, freedom, truth, joy, and enlightenment

If you are never angry, always forgiving instantly and constantly blaming yourself knowing you can never be right, you will have heaven on earth and in your heart.  And Christ will help you to do all these things.  You must be like Christ.  You must never love one sister more than another sister, love each sister equally.  If they hurt you or wrong you, love them even more."

Gerontissa Makrina (+1995)

A Quote by St. Staretz Silouan on god, christianity, pride, humility, peace, freedom, joy, truth, love, and stillness

The spirit of obedience is necessary not only in monks, but everyone else, too.  Even the Lord was obedient.  The proud and those who are a law unto themselves prevent the indwelling of grace and therefore never know peace of soul; whereas the grace of the Holy Spirit enters with ease into the soul of the obedient, bringing joy and quiet.

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.
 

Your Father in Christ,
Bishop JOSEPH

A Quote by unknown on god, christianity, pride, humility, true spirituality, freedom, truth, peace, and liberation

"The proud man thinks he can comprehend everything with his mind. The Lord does not grant this ... The Lord does not manifest Himself to the proud soul. Pride is difficult to detect in oneself, but the Lord leaves the proud to be tormented by their impotence until they humble themselves." -- St. Silouan of Mount Athos
