ΛΙΠΑΣΜΑ ΓΙΑ ΤΟ ΘΑΥΜΑ




Grace has been given mystically to those who have been baptized into Christ; and it becomes active within them to the extent that they actively observe the commandments. Grace never ceases to help us secretly; but to do good - as far as lies in our power - depends on us. 

St. Mark the Ascetic in The Philokalia, Vol. 1

                                                               ***************

Grace operates as well through the unworthy, so that we are sanctified as well thought unworthy priests. 

Blessed Theophylact of Bulgaria

                                                              ****************

What is grace? It is the blessed power of God. . the power that cleanses, sanctifies, enlightens, that helps in doing good and withdraws from evil, that comforts and gives courage in misfortunes, sorrows, and sickness; that is a pledge of receiving the everlasting blessings, prepared by God in heaven for His chosen ones. 

St. John of Kronstadt
