“Тогда вздымается Геннисаретское озеро, и из пучины на берег начинают вылезать давно утонувшие, полные ярости свиньи и кидаются на несчастного, который сам сделал выбор между ними и Богом. Когда нечистый дух выйдет из человека, то ходит по безводным местам, ища покоя и не находит; тогда говорит: возвращусь в дом мой, откуда я вышел. И придя, находит его незанятым, выметенным и убранным; тогда идет и берет с собою семь других духов, злейших себя, и, войдя, живут там; и бывает для человека того последнее хуже первого.
(архимандрит Тихон)”
Tikhon Shevkunov, Everyday Saints and Other Stories

“Everything on our earth—both the simple and the complicated questions, both the little human problems and the challenges of finding the great path to God, all the secrets of the past, the present, and the future ages—all can be resolved only by such mysterious, ineffably beautiful and omnipotent humility. And even if we cannot understand its truth and meaning, and even if it seems for now that we are not ready for this mysterious and all-powerful humility, nonetheless, that humility by itself will reveal itself to us through those incredible persons who are capable of possessing it.”
Tikhon Shevkunov, Everyday Saints and Other Stories

“As St. Ephraim the Syrian wrote, the Lord does not seek the monk or the layperson, the scholar or the simpleton, the rich man or the pauper, but only the heart that thirsts for God, full of a sincere desire to be true to Him and His commandments!”
Tikhon Shevkunov, Everyday Saints and Other Stories
