Nothing so powerful as charity

3 July 2019

St John Chrysostom, end of the 13th century, from Vatopedi Monastery IN R

Despite the fact that virginity, fasting and sleeping on the ground demand greater efforts, there’s nothing so powerful and so capable of extinguishing the fire of our sins as charity.

It’s superior to all else and places those who live it close to the King of the Heavens Himself.

And rightly so.

>Saint John Chrysostom
