On a Christian life

Site page

Faith consists not only of being baptized in Christ, but also in fulfilling His commandments. Holy Baptism is perfect and gives us perfection, but does not make perfect those who do not follow the commandments.

St. Mark the Ascetic

Repentance and humility establish the soul. Charity and meekness strengthen it.

Monk Evagrius

Avoid praise, but do not be ashamed of reproach.

Rejoice when you perform the virtues, but do not become exalted, lest, arriving at the pier, you suffer a shipwreck.

Venerable St. Nilus of Sinai
