A Quote by St. John of Kronstadt on god, christianity, truth, spirituality, meditation, death, healing, renewel, love, and life

Christ is our hope, our cleansing and santification, our resurrection, life and repose.  He alone is what we all need, and therefore, the Orthodox Church constantaly pronounces these words aloud so that we may hear them during Holy Services of the Church, and be constantly renewed.  For we are inclined to forget the only thing we need.  With death all will be taken from us, all earthly goods, riches, beauty of body and raiment, spacious dwellings, etc., but the virtue of the soul, that incorruptible raiment, shall remain with us eternally.

A Quote by St. Andrew of Crete on god, spirit, soul, thoughts, psychology, freedom, forgiveness, christianity, and spirituality

Arise my soul, and review your deeds which have preceeded from you.  Scrutinize them closely, and shed the rain of your tears, declaring openly to Christ your thoughts and deeds, so that you may be justified.

A Quote by St. Tikhon of Zadonsk on god, self, spirituality, evil, people, virtue, awareness, freedom, truth, and christianity

Keep from prying into other people's affairs, for such prying gives occasion for slander, judgment, and other grievous sins. Why do you need to be concerned about others? Know and examine your own self.

A Quote by Gerontissa Makrina on god, spirituality, christianity, forgiveness, healing, love, psychology, peace, and truth

Continually forgive others.  Forgive AT ONCE, not one second latter, not one half second later, because if you hesitate to forgive, jealousy comes in the door, then hatred and envy.  Forgive instantly as Christ forgives instantly.

A Quote by St. Innocent of Alaska on god, spirituality, christianity, violence, prayer, awakening, elightenment, light, and love

Do not be careless.  Pray as much as you can - more frequently and more fervantly.  Prod yourself - force yourself to do so, for the Kingdom of God is taken by force.  You will never attain it without forcing yourself.

A Quote by St. Nicolai Vilimirovich on god, patience, forgiveness, joy, love, spirituality, psychology, and transcendent

Patience, forgiveness and joy are the three greatest characteristics of divine love.  They are characteristics of all real love - if there is such a thing as real love outside of divine love.  Without these three characteristics, love is not love.  If you give the name 'love' to anything else, it is as though you were giving the name 'sheep' to a goat or a pig.

Our Father awaits us with great zeal and desire, and with love He will see us returning from afar, and He will look upon us with compassionate eyes, and we shall be dear to Him, and He will fall on our neck running and embrace us and kiss us with His Holy Love.  He will not reproach us, and He will no longer remember our sins and iniquities, and all the holy angles and all His elect will begin to rejoice over us.

If we do not see the beauty of God in this life then we will never see it in the next life.  We must see the glory of God in the smallest flower.
