FROM ST JOHN OF KRONSTADT (MY LIFE IN CHRIST I.5)
A man becomes spiritual insofar as he lives a spiritual life. He begins to see God in all things, to see His power and might in every manifestation. Always and everywhere he sees himself abiding in God and dependent on God for all things. But insofar as a man lives a bodily life, so much he does he do bodily things; He doesn't see God in anything, even in the most wondrous manifestations of His Divine power. In all things he sees body, material, everywhere and always - "God is not before his eyes." (Ps. 35:2)
ODE III FROM THE KATAVASIAS
THE MEETING OF THE LORD IN THE TEMPLE
As the firm support of those who hope in You firmly, O Lord, now confirm the Church that You established, which You purchased for yourself with Your precious Blood.
FOR THE DEVOUT MAN ST MAKARIOS OF EGYPT
In that you loved the life-style of Angels you lived far away in desert places, O Father, and carnal passions you subdued and thus you became a bearer of God and a peer of Angels.
DOXASTICON FROM ORTHROS
Now in these last times, at evening on the first day of the week, O Christ, You came and stood among Your friends; and by the miracle of Your entry through the doors that were locked, You verified the miracle of Your resurrection from the dead. You filled the Disciples with joy, and imparted to them the Holy Spirit; and You gave them all authority to forgive sins. Moreover You did not leave Thomas to drown beneath the waves of disbelief. Therefore grant true knowledge also to us, and forgiveness of offenses, O compassionate Lord.
