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?"

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

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.)

What does it say on the scroll?

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.)

Did anybody figure out the statement on mine?

http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,58165.msg1581848.html#msg1581848
The image in the original post is indistinct but the wording appears to be a part of or a variant of the text commonly found on the scroll of the Archangel Michael when depicted at the entrance to a church, as in this example:

The last word is cut off but it's fairly clear where it's going. It's from his Life according to St. Athanasius, the bolded portion being the bit in question:

"Wherefore, children, let us not faint nor deem that the time is long, or that we are doing something great, 'for not worthy are the sufferings of this present time to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed to us-ward' (Rom. 8:18)."

(I'vd re-ordered the quote from Romans to better reflect the text being translated without affecting its meaning.)

From his Life, said as part of his advice to co-suffering monastics:

"The Lord, with your patience, will lead you out of the pit of the passions and from the dirt of impurity."

(Had to find a better image. Didn't realize the text was upside down until I did.)

Mother of God "Assuage my Sorrows"



Is it his Christmas wish list?  Does she look so dejected because she’s wondering how to pay for all of that on a carpenter’s salary?
OC.NET is full of temptations, but in temptations we are enforced, remember about the thread "Temptation in the Desert: Rachel Weisz and the Undoing of Mor Ephrem". OC.NET helps in becoming unpassionate.

Mother of God "Assuage my Sorrows"

Су́дъ пра́веденъ суди́те, ми́лость и щедро́ты твори́те ко и҆́скреннему своему̀

Seems to be derived from Zachariah 7:9:

"Judge true judgment; render mercy and compassions to your neighbor."
"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
