A deeper state

17 October 2021

When Christ, the Apostles and the Fathers speak about peace, they don’t mean abstention from bodily or spiritual warfare, but an altogether more profound spiritual state. It begins with the pacification of our conscience, but also involves participation in the uncreated energies of God. People have to self-identify positively before God; they have to be at peace with themselves, with their neighbor and with God.

Elder Efraim Vatopaidinos
