“Paul, the other apostles, and innumerable saints after them gave their lives, shed their lives day after day forgetting themselves… They lived for others, they gave as generously as they had received. We also are called to learn the joy, the exhilarating, the wonderful joy of giving, of turning away from ourselves to be free to give, and of giving on all levels, the smallest things and the greatest things. And this can be taught us only by the power of the Holy Spirit…”
(Metropolitan Anthony of Sourozh) [Generosity; Love]
