Elder Ephraim of Katounakia on making excuses

The Martyrdom of St. Demetrios the Great Martyr (source)
Making excuses is not written in the Scriptures. The Saints not only did not justify themselves, but they suffered willingly on behalf of others.
-Elder Ephraim of Katounakia
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
