“If you loved your brethren, there would be none occasion of stumbling in you. Hear the Psalm, what it says: Great peace have they that love Your law, and there is to them none occasion of stumbling. Great peace it says there is for them that love the law of God, and that is why there is to them none occasion of stumbling. Those then who take scandal, or, occasion of stumbling, destroy peace. And of whom says he that they take not and make not occasion of stumbling? They that love God’s law. Consequently they are in charity… Moreover, how is it they do not take occasion of stumbling, but because they forbear one another? As Paul says, Forbearing one another in love, studying to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

“For He brought Himself as a Victim and holy Sacrifice to God the Father, reconciling the world unto Himself, and bringing into kinship with Him that which had fallen away therefrom, that is, the race of man. For He is our Peace, according to the Scripture. And, indeed, our reconciliation to God could no otherwise have been accomplished through Christ that saveth us than by communion in the Spirit and sanctification. For that which knits us together, and, as it were, unites us with God, is the Holy Spirit; Which if we receive, we are proved sharers and partakers in the Divine Nature, and we admit the Father Himself into our hearts, through the Son and in the Son.” St Cyril the Great #Sanctification #Christisrisen #TrulyHeisrisen #HolyFifty #dailyreadings #coptic #orthodox

“Lord, turn Thou our faces away from the world by the desire of Thee, that we may see it for what it is, and no longer believe in a shadow as in truth. Fashion us anew, O Lord, and renew and give our mind zeal before death, so that in the hour of our departure we may know the purpose of our entrance and departure from this world. And so, having finished that work for which Thy will first called us to come into this life, may we then hope, with our mind full of confidence, to receive those great things which, according to the Scriptures’ promise, Thy love hath prepared in the second, new creation, things the remembrance of which is guarded in the faith of Thy mysteries.” St Isaac the Syrian #WillofGod #oursalvation #HolyFifty #Christisrisen #TrulyHeisrisen #dailyreadings #coptic #orthodox

“What He declares, here, is nothing but this: “Belief in Me is not an ordinary thing. It does not come by means of human evidence or proofs. It rather needs a proclamation from above and a spirit whose disposition is good. God attracts that spirit so that it may accept the proclamation.” Saint John Chrysostom . “I shall not cast out the person who comes to Me: that is to say, I shall not throw him like a useless vessel…as a despised person and he will not remain without a share of My care. I shall gather him into My barn and he will dwell in the heavenly places. He will see himself having all hope surpassing man’s understanding.” Saint Cyril the Great #comeasyouare #cometoChrist #GodsLove #GodsMercy #dailyreadings #coptic #orthodox #HolyFifty #ChristisRisen #TrulyHeisRisen
