Elders and their sayings 2
Talking and not talking
The one who speaks because the Lord wants it, is doing fine. And the one who is silent, because the Lord wants it, is also doing fine.
The chastity of young people
The abstinence and chastity of the young people will be considered as a martyrdom of the moral sense.
St. Paisios the Hagiorate
The best counterattack
When you are attacked because someone doesn’t like you, the best method to deal with it, is not to be thinking about it but to pray.
St. Sofronios of Essex
