“Let no temptation overcome you. Let no darkness cloud your path, and no trial come upon you in which you do not immediately turn to Christ our All-merciful God,, Who has trampled upon death and abolished the power of the devil.

Remain in Christ’s grace and He will guide you all to salvation. Remember the end of our lice, the never-setting day of Christ’s Kingdom, and you will know why you are alive and for what you are striving.” – Hieromonk Seraphim (Rose)
