Excerpt from "Prayers by the Lake"

"Truly, my God, You are just as great with or without the world.

You are equally great whether the world glorifies You or whether the world blasphemes You. But when the world blas­phemes You, You seem even greater in the eyes of Your saints."

+St. Nikolai of Ochrid and Zica, Prayers by the Lake, VI

Just recently I used the same quote on a different site. St Nikolai is amazing... I hope to get his icon and a copy of his Prayers by the Lake.
