Trust And Obey...

...for there's no other way. Orthodox priest Fr. Stephen Freeman reflects on the means of grace:

"...The nature of grace and its work upon the soul is very much beyond the reach of our ken, much less our analysis of any process. But the Christian who regularly avails himself or herself of the sacraments of the Church, with heart-felt attention, will see that, with time, grace does the work of salvation in our hearts.

There is far too much attention paid to books and spiritual reading, with far too little attention paid to prayer, fasting and repentance. We think too much about what cannot be thought."
