Standing at your deathbed, the Apostles cried aloud in wonder:
The Palace of the King withdraws: the Ark of holiness is raised on high.
Let the gates be opened wide that the Gate of God
may enter into abundant joy,
She who asks without ceasing for great mercy on the world.
SAINT PORPHYRIOS ON OBEDIENCE
Rev. Gregory Jensen
~~“TURN YOUR HOME INTO HEAVEN”
On one of St. John Chrysostom’s maxims
St. John Chrysostom
St. John Chrysostomwrote, “Turn your home into heaven; you will do this not when you change the walls or rebuild the foundation, but when you invite the Almighty Lord to your repast. God never disregards any kind of supper. Where there is spiritual science, there is humility, sincerity and modesty. Where the husband, and the wife, and the children are in accord and united by the bonds of virtue, there is Christ among them.”
