Agapi en Xristo: 100 sayings of Gerontissa Gabriela
Serbian Patriarch Pavle
Metropolitan Amfilohije, Montenegro
All those who were baptized into Christ, were baptized into His death. If we accept our death, God enters our hearts.
" We have been able to see many Euro-Atlantic countries effectively embark on a path of renouncing their roots, including Christian values, which underlie Western civilization...Policies are pursued that put large families and same-sex partnerships in the same category, belief in God and belief in Satan...holidays are abolished or given other names, names that shyly conceal the nature of those holidays..." (Vladimir Putin)
"How good it is to be in Church—to hear the holy prayers, the chanting and the reading of the psalms! What spiritual depths are concealed in the psalms and other divine prayers! Of course, the reader cannot grasp everything; but if just one thought makes a lasting impression, then much has been gained." - St. Nikon of Optina; Orthodoxy
