WORDS FROM THE CHURCH FATHERS

He who busies himself with the sins of others, or judges his brother on suspicion, has not yet even begun to repent or to examine himself so as to discover his own sins.
St Maximos the Confessor

We were created to live on earth unlike animals who die and disappear with time, but with the high purpose to live with God not for a hundred years or so but for eternity.
St Innocent of Alaska

In order to fulfill the commandments of Christ, you must know them! Read the Holy Gospel, penetrate its spirit and make it the rule of your life.
St Nikon of Optina

The Lord calls to him all sinners; He opens His arms wide, even to the worst among them. Gladly He takes them in His arms,
if only they will come to Him.
St Macarius of Optina

Remember, never to fear the power of evil more than your trust in the power and love of God.
Hermas, one of the Seventy

Just as a strongly flowing fountain is not blocked up by a handful of earth, so the compassion of the Creator is not overcome
by the wickedness of his creatures.
St Isaac The Syrian

Happiness can only be achieved by looking inward and learning to enjoy whatever life has and this requires transforming greed into gratitude.
St John Chrysostom

The whole earth is a living icon of the face of God.
St Anthony the Great

Do not be surprised that you fall every day; do not give up, but stand your ground courageously. And assuredly, the angel who guards you will honour your patience.
St John Climacus

If you find that there is no love in you, but you want to have it, then do deeds of love, even though you do them without love in the beginning. The Lord will see your desire and striving and will put love in your heart.
St Ambrose of Optina

We know that prayer in and of itself cannot save us, but carrying it out before God can. For when the Lord’s eyes are upon us He sanctifies us, as the sun warms everything upon which it shines.
St Gregory Palamas

“So be at peace…and call upon God.”
St Nektarios of Aegina
