St. Amphilochios of Patmos: Living Orthodoxy

“Do not be afraid because of your Orthodoxy; because as an Orthodox Christian in the West, you will often be isolated and always in a small minority. Do not make compromises but do not attack other Christians. Be neither defensive nor aggressive; simply be yourself.” – St. Amphilochios of Patmos

St Paisios: Gifts and Faults

“God in His goodness has arranged things perfectly, so that with our gifts, we can help each other, and with our faults, we can be humbled by each other. For every person has some gifts; but everyone also has some faults which one must struggle to overcome.” – St Paisios of Mount Athos
