In proportion as the ardor of divine love brings you nearer to God, so will a larger concourse of saintly brethren flock to you. For, as the Lord says, 'A city set on a hill cannot be hid' (Mt. 5:14).More John Cassian quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
No other virtue makes man more equal to the angels, than the imitation of their way of life.More John Cassian quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is by means of these that we attain perfect love, through the grace and compassion of our Lord Jesus Christ, to whom be glory through all the ages. Amen.More John Cassian quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
...when we abandon visible riches... it is strange goods and not our own that we are leaving. And this is so even if we boast that we acquired them through our own efforts or that they were passed on to us as an inheritance. I say nothing is ours except what is in our hearts, what belongs to our souls, what cannot be taken away by anyone.More John Cassian quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When we say 'hallowed be Your name' to God what we are really saying is 'Father, make us such as deserve knowledge and understanding of how holy You are, or at least let Your holiness shine forth in the spiritual lives we lead.' And this surely happens as men see our good works and glorify our Father in heaven.More John Cassian quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
