Someone else waters

Here in this world the farmer cultivates the earth, but also needs the rains and the waters that come from the sky!

St Macarius of Egypt

 

Let us destroy them

We should not maintain the thoughts that are pleasing to the devil, but we should destroy them using the knife of the Godly word.

St John of Damascus

 

Whoever gets glory in this world, is lost with this world

Whoever gets glory in this world, is lost with this world. However, the ones who are glorified with Christ are saved by Christ. The glory of this world is death, while the glory of Christ is life, life eternal and immortal.

St Nikolaj Velimirović
