St. Porphyrios on Asceticism in the World

"Orthodox asceticism is not only for monasteries, but also for the world. Prayer within the church, full services, and the glorification of God in the spirit of love are a great blessing. You should know how many souls are tortured by the passions, and how much they are comforted near the love of Christ!"
-St. Porphyrios of Kavsokalyvia
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
