“Nativity is the blessed feast of gifts, for God offered us the greatest gift possible: His very Son. He offered us, in the most intense and intimate way, His love, urging us to be, in our turn, lovers and love-givers”. #MetropolitanNifon
”Let us not be sorrowful when persecuted; let us rather rejoice that by being chased away from the precious things of this earth, we run for the heavenly good, according to the One Who promised the beatitude to those who are persecuted for Him. For theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven, by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ”. St Gregory of Nyssa #FastingWithJoy
"Any virtue is connected with another in a series of special links. Prayer is related to love; love is connected with joy; joy with docility; docility with humility; humility with service; service with hope; hope with faith; faith with obedience; and obedience with simplicity" #SaintMacariusTheGreat

“We are close to those bright moments when Christ our Lord descends into the world so that humans become kinder. We hope that following His example our young people will make a better, juster, more righteous and holier world”. #MetropolitanAndrei
