Thought for the Day

"When you are completely detached from all earthly things and when, your conscience clear, you are at any moment ready in heart to leave this present life and to dwell with the Lord, then you may recognize that you have acquired true virtue. If you want to be known to God, do all that you can to remain unknown to men."

-St. Theognostos
On the Practice of the Virtues, Contemplation, and the Priesthood.
