That Which is Bread

Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? – Isaiah

Life is blessedness

Life is blessedness, and not simply because we believe in blessed eternity; but here on earth life can be blessed, if we live with Christ, fulfilling His holy commandments. If a man is not tied to earthly goods, but will in all things rely only on God, will live for Christ and in Christ, then life here on earth will become blessed.

St. Barsanuphius of Optina +1913
