THE

THEOLOGIAN 25 JANUARY

St Makarios
(Christians)

St Peter of Damaskos:
... the Holy Angels in their infinite Happiness and Wonder
can never satisfy their longing to Glorify God;
and because they have been found worthy
of celebrating so Great a Master,
...they
they sing His Praises ceaselessly,
marvelling at what He has brought to pass...
pass
as St John Chrysostom says,
and ...advancing
advancing to still greater Knowledge,
Knowledge
as St Gregory the Theologian states.
It is the same with all the Saints
in this world and in the next.
Just as the Angels transmit Illumination to each other,
so intellectual beings are instructed by each other.
Some derive their Knowledge from the Divine Scriptures
and teach those who are more in need,
while others are taught Spiritually by the Holy Spirit
and make known to their Brethren in writing
the Mysteries that have been Revealed to them...

THE

THEOLOGIAN 25 JANUARY

having been Anointed with the Ointment from the Tree of


Life, Jesus Christ, the Heavenly Plant, are considered worthy to
reach the Degree of Perfection of the Kingdom, and of the
Adoption.
Indeed, they are Participators of the Mysteries of the Heavenly King
and enjoy the Confidence of the Almighty.. They enter into His
Palace, where the Angels and Spirits of the Saints are, even while
they are still in this world.
Even though they have not yet entered into the full Inheritance prepared
for them in that Age, nevertheless, they are most certain because of
the Pledge, which they have already received (the Anointing), as if
already Crowned and reigning.
Nor are they surprised, as though it were a strange and new thing,
that they are about to Reign with Christ, because of the abundance
of Grace and their childlike abandonment to the Spirit.
That is because they enjoyed that Relish of Sweetness and that effective
Working of Power while still in the flesh.

Archimandrite Sophrony On Judging Others


What am I when I judge my Brethren? As long as I do not see them
as our Lord sees them, all my judgments will be wrong!
We must begin rather with Prayers for them - with the idea of being
Obedient and of not judging your Brethren.
We must begin with the desire to serve others with Love, like St Silouan,
who, on Feast Days, was grateful to be allowed to serve hundreds of
Monks in the Refectory. He was so happy to see how much Christ
Loved those people - those Children of God he served them with
much Love.
Everyday tasks, accomplished in such a spirit, can become an
extremely pleasant Spiritual Food.
Because of such an Attitude of Service, in the evening our heart will be
very tender, and we will weep before God over our own defects - our
own lack of Love.

and to the Holy Spirit

We shall be Blessed with clear vision if we keep our eyes fixed on Christ, for
He, as St Paul teaches, is our Head, and there is no shadow of evil in Him.
St Paul himself - and all who have reached the same Heights of Sanctity had their eyes fixed on Christ, and so have all who live and move - have
their being in Him.
As no Darkness can be seen by anyone surrounded by Light, so no
trivialities can capture the attention of those who have their eyes on Christ.
Those who keep their focus upon the Head and Origin of the whole
Universe has them on Virtue in all its Perfection - they are focused on
Truth, on Justice, on Immortality and on everything else that is Good, for
Christ is Goodness itself.

brought the Harvest of the sublime

With the
Spirits Fire, from the Church Thou
burnt away the thorny weeds of the

Highest Love for Divine Philosophy,
Father of Fathers, and the Pastor of
Pastors, Bright Star of Priests, and
the Pride and Joy of the world, and

Gregory.

Wisdom Thou put Thy Most Precious

imbibed its Most Sacred Drink, to the
Believer Thou hast imparted sublime
Theology. And Thou stemmed the
soul-corrupting course of heresies,
for
it
was
brimming
with
blasphemies. The Holy Spirit indeed
found Thee as the Pilot of the Ship,
scarring away and driving back
assaults of the impious as if but
gusts of wind; for in Monad of
Essence Thou proclaimed the Holy
Trinity.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son,


and to the Holy Spirit
