“Obedience lifts us up to heaven, because it casts off the disobedience of the first-created people. It casts off haughtiness, self-satisfaction and likens us to God. Let us struggle to ascend to the ‘likeness/ because like is united with like. Let us unite with the source of light, of virtue and of goodness, Who is Jesus Christ Himself.”

(Elder Anthimos of St Anne’s, biography)
