Christ Is All We Need

StJohnKronstadt“Christ is our hope, our cleansing and sanctification, our resurrection, life and repose. He alone is what we all need, and therefore, the Orthodox Church constantly pronounces these words aloud so that we may hear them during Holy Services of the Church, and be constantly renewed. For we are inclined to forget the only thing we need. With death all will be taken from us, all earthly goods, riches, beauty of body and raiment, spacious dwellings, etc., but the virtue of the soul, that incorruptible raiment, shall remain with us eternally.”
-St. John of Kronstadt
