The Quest for Holiness. Abbot Tryphon



The Quest for Holiness


Holiness comes only to those who struggle.
Not an hour should pass without taking time to examine our heart, for the hour of judgement can come at any time, and we must be ready to give account to God for our life. When we practice examination of the heart, we do so with the knowledge that there is no spiritual improvement if we do not seek to please God with holiness of life. If we find good in our deeds, we must attribute it to God. If we find we've neglected our spiritual struggle, and acted with foolish abandon, we must turn to God in repentance. Each moment of each hour we must resolve to turn ourselves around, and with God's help, fight against the enemy of our souls. Holiness comes only to those who struggle.


With love in Christ,

Abbot Tryphon
