Quote for the week

“In truth, eternally and in reality, this oil filled with light is a venerable proof of your love, God on high. This is why Paul himself deemed it fitting to say directly in his teaching on grace and thanksgiving, “He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God, who has also sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee,” and also, “Do not,” he said, “grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.”

  • St. Gregory of Narek, from Prayer 93 of his Lamentations
