“The soul, which has the true fear groans saying, ‘I will sing of mercy and justice; to you O lord, I will sing praises. I will behave wisely in a perfect way. Oh, when will You come to me?’ (Ps. 101: 1). She walks in a perfect way, so she does not fear, for love casts out fear. When the Bridegroom comes to her arms, she fears but she feels secure. She fears not to be thrown in Hades, but to be without sin lest her Bridegroom forsakes her.” -St Augustine . . . “There is one who fears lest he is whipped; this is the fear of the slaves.

“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. Ephesians 4:2-3 And to show that this is the law of Christ, hear the same apostle commending this very law. Bear one another’s burdens, says he, and so shall you fulfill the law of Christ.

“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

“The Lord came fore this reason: to take away the sins of the world; for it is impossible for mankind to get rid of them except through washing them away. Therefore it is necessary for the person who believes not to depart from this world while bearing the old man. As long as a person does not, through faith, kill the old man, bury, and die in him (the old man), then he will go to that place and be punished for his earlier sins.” – St. John Chrysostom #believe #hetrampleddowndeathbyhisdeath #Hehasdeliveredusfromthepowerofdeath #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

“Accordingly, I beseech you, let us so perform all our actions that we may not fail to obtain such glory as this. To obtain it is by no means difficult, if we desire it, or arduous, if we apply ourselves to it. For, “If we endure, we shall also reign.” What is the meaning of “If we endure”? If we patiently bear tribulations and persecutions; if we walk the narrow path. The narrow path is unattractive by nature but becomes easy when we choose to follow it, because of our hope for the future.” – St. John Chrysostom #endure #endurance #wewillreign #ChristIsRisen #TrulyHeIsRisen #wearerisenwithHim #dailyreadings #coptic #orthodox
