This is where the king is
To escape from a foreign land and find our true home, where we can connect directly with God, we need to enter inside of us, in our hearts. This is where the king is, this where the kingdom is located.
Saint Nikolai Velimirovich
Pure and absolute confession
Take great care to clean yourself with pure and absolute confession. Do not leave any sin inside of you, so the enemy cannot find a way to throw you down again.
St. Joseph the Hesychast
