“For if these things [faith, virtue, knowledge, self-contol, steadfastness, godliness, brotherly affection, love] are yours in abound, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For whoever lacks these things is blind and short-sighted and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins. Therefore, brethren, be the more zealous to confirm your call and election, for if you do this you will never fall”

~2 Peter 1

“Every though which is not preceded by the silence of humility does not proceed from God. All that is from the devil occurs with confusion and disturbance.”

~St.s Barsanuphius and John (whose memory we celebrate today! Pray to God for us!)

“Our merit is in believing and not in knowing.”

~St. Nikolai Velimirovic (Homily, February 6)
