“When Philip spoke to the Ethiopian eunuch something in the eunuch’s heart changed. It says in Acts that he came to believe; that is, his heart was melted by the truth he heard. The words of Scripture are very powerful and when the right interpretation is given to them something in a human being opens up if his heart is ready. Therefore, the eunuch accepted Christ with his whole soul; he was a changed man.”
(Fr Seraphim Rose)
