“Snow can never emit flame.

Water can never issue fire.

A thorn bush can never produce a fig.

Just so, your heart can never be free

from oppressive thoughts, words, and actions

until it has purified itself internally.

Be eager to walk this path.

Watch your heart always.

Constantly say the prayer

“Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me.”

Be humble.

Set your soul in quietness.”

St. Hesychius the Priest
Ἅγιος ὁ Θεός, Ἅγιος ἰσχυρός, Ἅγιος ἀθάνατος, ἐλέησον ἡμας

"When we say during the Holy Sacrament of Marriage’ prayers, that the woman shall be obedient to her husband, the husband must also take heed when he is told in the same prayer, that he must love her. The woman must also not forget that this obedience is her way to salvation. And if the man is the head of the family then the woman is the heart, and this heart is made by God that He may find rest in it."
Elder Arsenie Papacioc
