St. Pishoy the Great (Commemorated on 15 July)


Quote of the Week

“Ask for repentance in your prayer and nothing else, neither for divine lights, nor miracles, nor prophecies, nor spiritual gifts—nothing but repentance. Repentance will bring you humility, humility will bring you the Grace of God, and God will have in His Grace everything you need for your salvation, or anything you might need to help another soul"

St. Paisios of Mount Athos


For Your Edification
