“…there are the daily opportunities for expressing Christian love — giving alms, visiting the sick, helping those in need. All of these means, if one’s heart is in them, are what help to make the Christian different from the world, because they lift his eyes above this passing world to the heavenly Kingdom which is our goal as Christians. These are the positive means of going deeper into Orthodoxy.”
(Fr. Seraphim Rose+ ‘Orthodox World View’)
