The Healing of Demonic Possession - Constantine Zalalas

Δώσε μικρά και πάρε μεγάλα ( Άγιος Ιωάννης Χρυσόστομος )


Όσο έχεις τόσο κάνει.
Έχεις ένα οβολό μόνο να δώσεις στο φτωχό
Αγοράζεις τον ουρανό τον ίδιο.
Όχι γιατί είναι φτηνός ο ουρανός
Αλλά γιατί ο Θεός είναι φιλάνθρωπος.
Δεν έχεις χρήματα;
Δώσε ένα ποτήρι κρύο νερό.
Όποιος δώσει ένα ποτήρι κρύο νερό για χάρη μου
Σʼ αυτούς τους καταφρονεμένους
Θα λάβει την αμοιβή του μας λέει ο Kύριος.
O ουρανός πουλιέται κι αγοράζεται κι εμείς αδιαφορούμε.
Δώσε ψωμί και πάρε παράδεισο.
Δώσε μικρά και πάρε μεγάλα.
Δώσε θνητά και πάρε αθάνατα.
Δώσε φθαρτά και πάρε άφθαρτα.

Άγιος Ιωάννης Χρυσόστομος

The compassionate God still calls to Himself all that have turned away ( St. Tikhon of Zadonsk )

The compassionate God still calls to Himself all that have turned away, and He awaits them and promises them mercy.

Sinners that repent are still saved; both publicans and fornicators cleansed by repentance enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.

The loving Father still receives His prodigal sons come back from a far country and He opens the doors of His house and clothes them in the best robe, and gives them each a ring on their hand and shoes on their feet and commands all the saints to rejoice in them. 

 St. Tikhon of Zadonsk

In danger from the invisible enemies of salvation ( St. Justin Popovich )

“If you are suffering for your faith in Christ, the Lives of the Saints will console you and encourage you and make you bold and give you wings, and your torments will be changed into joy.

 If you are in any sort of temptation, the Lives of the Saints will help you overcome it both now and forever. If you are in danger from the invisible enemies of salvation, the Lives of the Saints will arm you with the ‘whole armor of God,’ and you will crush them all now and forever and throughout your whole life. 

If you are in the midst of visible enemies and persecutors of the Church of Christ, the Lives of the Saints will give you the courage and strength of a confessor, and you will fearlessly confess the one true God and Lord in all world─Jesus Christ─and you will boldly stand up for the holy truth of His Gospel unto Death, unto every death, and you will feel stronger than all deaths, and much more so than all visible enemies of Christ; and being tortured for Christ you will shout for joy, feeling with all your being that your life is in heaven, hidden with Christ in God, wholly above all deaths.”

 St. Justin Popovich
