For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world- our faith – 1 John 5:4 .

“It is said that an artist wished to present a painting of peace. He chose to paint a very stormy day and a huge rock that was battered by waves on all sides. In this painting there was a ship that was wrecked by the waves… a dove that built a nest in a hole in the middle of the rock lay there quite secure. The artist then wrote the word ‘peace’ on the rock directly below that hole. This is our peace in Jesus the Rock of ages. In Him we dwell and have rest among the tribulations of life” – Fr Tadros Malaty .

“Believers in Christ are joyful and victorious, but in whom? In Him since He conquers the world because His members overcome the world” St Augustine
