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.

Saint Innocent Apostle to America

A Quote by Saint Moses the Ethiopian on god, evil, judgement, peace, good, virtue, christianity, hope, freedom, and truth

Do not rail against anyone, but rather say, "God knows each one."  Do not agree with him who slanders, do not rejoice at his slander and do not hate him who slanders his nieghbor.  This is what it means not to judge.

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 Baltasar Gracian on virtue, self-respect, integrity, and judgment

Never lose your self-respect, nor be too familiar with yourself when you are alone. Let your integrity itself be your own standard of rectitude, and be more indebted to the severity of your own judgment of yourself than to all external percepts. Desist from unseemly conduct, rather out of respect for your own virtue than for the strictures of external authority.

Baltasar Gracian (1601 - 1658)
