St. Ignatius Brianchaninov

“It is necessary that reading be assisted by a way of life:
‘Be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only,
deceiving your own selves’ (James 1:22).”

– St. Ignatius Brianchaninov

“It is necessary for salvation that the one who has been baptized into Christ should live according to the laws of Christ.”

“Spiritual discernment is acquired by reading the Holy Scriptures, first and foremost the New Testament, and reading the holy Fathers whose writings correspond to the type of life the Christian lives.”
