Everyone shall give an answer to God for himself… “to his own master he standeth or falleth.” Correct your own sins, amend your own life. St. John of Kronstadt The outward man perishes through fasting and self-control, but the more he does so, the more the inward man is renewed. St. Gregory Palamas (14th century) The way to God lies through love of people. At the Last Judgment I shall not be asked whether I was successful in my ascetic exercises, nor how many bows and prostrations I made. Instead I shall be asked did I feed the hungry, clothe the naked, visit the sick and the prisoners. That is all I shall be asked. Saint Maria of Paris (Mother Maria Skobstova) Nobody can become a Christian by being lazy. It needs work, lots of work.

Opening Reception 5:30 pm - 11 am - 4 pm Daily Chowan Arts Council - 504 South Broad Street 252-482-8005 The heart cannot remain fi rm in purity, so as not to be defiled, if it will not be crushed by fasting. It is impossible also to preserve holiness without fasting, and the fl esh will not submit to the spirit… because natural needs predominate. St. Paisius Velichkovsky Elder Porphyrios Fasting is a mechanical aid to cleansing the mind, to subjecting the will to the mind. Priest Daniel Sysoev Adam, God’s first-formed man, transgressed: could God not at once have brought death upon him? But see what the Lord does, in His great love towards man. He casts him out from Paradise… but He puts him to dwell over against Paradise: that seeing whence he had fallen, and from what and into what a state he was brought down, he might afterwards be saved by repentance. St. Cyril of Jerusalem (313-386 AD) So long as the soul is in a state contrary to nature, running wild with the weeds and thorns of sensual pleasures, it is a dwelling place of grotesque beasts. Saint Theodoros (about 7th century) As we are therefore beginning this sacred season, dedicated to the purifi cation of the soul, let us be careful to fulfi ll the Apostolic command that we cleanse ourselves from all defi lement of the fl esh and of the spirit (IICor. 7:11)…With just contempt shall we be tormented by those who have no faith, and from our wickedness evil tongues will draw weapons to wound religion, if the way of life of those who fast be not in accord with what is needed in true self-denial... In vain do we deny our body food if we do not withhold our heart from iniquity, and restrain our lips that they speak no evil.
