A Saying from the Fathers

"You must kill egoism. If you don't kill it yourself, then the Lord, hammer-blow after hammer-blow, shall send various misfortunes, so as to crush this stone." - St. Theophan the Recluse.

Well, thank you for the message and plug in your sidebar, too! I have very much enjoyed your blog and hope my friends and family will visit as well. It is important to me to have them read other Orthodox perspectives as I am the only one in my circle who is Orthodox. God bless.
