Eldress Makrina: "When we make our nous a Heaven..."

Jesus Christ Pantocrator, the Son of God, the Savior of the World (source)
When we make our nous a Heaven and our mouth a Church and we are patient, God will number us with the monastics of the end times, whom a saint has said will have greater glory than any monastics from any other age. This is because today there are no virtuous guides as examples and everyone struggles alone as he is able. We need to protect our eyes and our ears and ceaselessly pray in order to have the grace of God.
-Gerondissa Makrina Vassopoulos of Portaria
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
