“Complete trust in God – that’s what holy humility is. Complete obedience to God, without protest, without reaction, even when some things seem difficult and unreasonable. Abandonment to the hands of God.
St John Chrysostom: Richness in Giving
“A rich man is not one who has much, but one who gives much. For what he gives away remains his forever” – St John Chrysostom
“A soul that’s been wounded by divine love is always glad, it rejoices, it leaps and dances, because it’s as buoyant in the love of the Lord as if it were riding on calm waters. No distressing event in the world can disturb its serenity and peace, nor deprive it of its joy and delight.” – St Nektarios of Aegina #orthodoxquotes #orthodoxy #christianquotes #stnektarios #stnektariosquotes #throughthegraceofgod
“Turn your mind towards Him continually. Learn to love prayer, familiar converse with the Lord. What counts above all is love, passionate love for the Lord, for Christ the Bridegroom. Become worthy of Christ’s love. In order not to live in darkness, turn on the switch of prayer so that divine light may flood your soul. Christ will appear in the depths of your being...” — St. Porphyrios #orthodoxquotes #orthodoxy #christianquotes #stporphyrios #stporphyriosquotes
