Ви́дите бра́те пꙋ́ть сей ѹзкїй иже вво́дитъ въ райскую широ́ту а широ́кий вò адъ

"Do you see, brethren, that this way is narrow which leads to the breadth of Paradise, but that wide is [the one] to Hell?"
"Take heed, you who listen to me: Our misfortune is inevitable, we cannot escape it. If God allows scandals, it is that the elect shall be revealed. Let them be burned, let them be purified, let them who have been tried be made manifest among you."   - The Life of the Archpriest Avvakum by Himself

Thank you, hawkeye.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

Пе́рвѣе вси́ ви́ды мꙋ́къ изнемо́гꙋтѣ не́же мы́ Хрта на́шегѡ ѿве́ржемся

"All forms of torture will first fail before we reject our Christ."

(Included above are the letterer's mistakes, specifically the wrong stress mark on final letters and the absence of a necessary abbreviation mark for Christ. I couldn't figure out how to replicate the superscript on the last word but since it was wrong anyway, I fixed it.)

St. Anthony of Optina

Возложим печаль нашу на Гд҃а и покоримся его святой волѣ успоко

Save for the last word, it's from his letters:

"We shall place our sorrow in the Lord and submit to His holy will peaceably."

(More or less. Try as I might to standardize my responses, I can't replicate some of these texts on my phone. The superscripts above were either changed or written out instead. I've also dropped the stress marks because there aren't enough and two out of three don't make much sense.)
