Your heart must really burn in your chest
Cultivate your love for Christ at such a point where, when you pronounce His name, tears should run down your eyes. Your heart must really burn. Then He will become your Master. He will be your Guide, Your Brother, Your Father and Your Elder.
Saint Amphilochios Makris
Someone else waters
In our world the farmer cultivates the land, but he also needs rain and water from the sky.
Saint Makarios the Egyptian
It is spread upon everyone
God’s shelter and providence spreads upon all people, but only those who have cleansed themselves from sin can see it.
Saint Isaac of Syria
