“The Easter greeting I gave them was ‘I pray that the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ may raise up in our souls every noble and beautiful sentiment. And may He lead us all to holiness and to triumph over our old self together with the passions and the desires.’ ┬áThis is what the Lord asks. This is why we pray that His resurrection may help us, they may give us grace to put to flight and mortar fire old self and become worthy of His church. So we pray for the Lord to help us. The greatest miracle worked by Christ is His resurrection. Don’t let us ever forget this.'”
(Elder Porphyrios in “Wounded by Love”)
