None really, I just thought it would be nice to have an on forum source of these words of wisdom.
I have also been reading sections from a book on the sayings of the desert fathers I was given at my baptism, and found some of their sayings and actions truely inspirational.
One I especially like to reread is by Gregory the Theologian
"These three things God requires of all Baptised: Right faith in theheart, truth on the tongue and temperance in the body."
"The true Christian is a warrior making his way through the regiments of the invisible enemy to his heavenly homeland." - St Herman of Alaska.
