Saint Amphilochios Makris
Christ is like the gardener who wants to heal your wounds from the thorns and you want to be left alone.
Even though we cannot see Him, Christ is always by our side.
When Christ slaps us, it means He loves us.
Many times, Christ visits you at your home, you tell Him to wait in the living room of your soul, while you are locked in your occupations and you forget that the One has come to visit you. He waits for you to come. When you are too late, He will leave. Last time you were so busy that you said a quick hello and then you left. You were in such a hurry that you did not talk to Him.
You must be happy. Jesus holds a chisel in His hand. He wants to make a sculpture just like you for the heavenly palace.
When you see someone who is spiritually exhausted, do not make that person carry another burden because one cannot bear it.
If you wholeheartedly love the One, then the wild beasts will love you back.
It will the most precious thing for me to see you in the Kingdom of Heaven.
When there is the flame of love, all the evil will be burnt.
When the human does not assert for one’s rights, God will inspire other people to fight for it.
May the light of the Lord bless you and always show your path.
The devil cannot stand those people who await Jesus.
With the temptations comes the Grace of God. It seems that you ruin the plans of the Devil.
One loves spiritually, and has God and his brother by one’s side through prayer. One is sad when one’s brother is not on the right path and prays for his progress.
The person who has Christian faith shall never reject it.
One who shouts has no power.
Keep up the flag of Christ to always have Him by your side.
Your mood sets me on fire. It’s like throwing coal into what’s inside me.
I want, my child, to live for Christ, to give yourself for him. When you open your heart, I want you to find nothing but Christ.
Since, Elder, you see so clearly our weaknesses and our mistakes, why do not you tell them to us?
