12 Wise words and Advice from elder Paisios… as a spiritual guide for our lives! 

• "Many people have it all, but they also have sorrow because they haven’t find Jesus Christ…" 

• "Whether we pray for ourselves or for others, prayer must be heartfelt…" 

• “Today, in the midst of so many dangers that we live, God protects us like a mother protects a young child, when it begins to walk. Now, Jesus Christ, Virgin Mary and the Saints help us the most, but we do not understand it. Imagine how the world would be, if they did not help! " 

• "God never abandons us… We abandon him!"

• "With a glance at the Sky, everything would change!" 

• "The years we are going through are very difficult and very dangerous, but in the end Jesus Christ will win!" 

• "In order for the paternal books to help, we must read them with humility and prayer…" 

• "After the demonic rain, the divine sunshine will come!"

• “Treat everything with love, kindness, patience and humility. Be like rocks. Everything erupts on you, but like the waves, everything falls back. You must be calm!" 

• "The Lord was crucified, he did not crucify anyone - he was killed, he did not kill anyone!" 

" Glory to God "should never be missing from your lips!" 

• "Why, Elder, while we have often felt the omnipotence of God, do we not see His blessing to us?" "It is a trap of the devil. The devil throws ashes in the eyes of man, to block the Grace of God. Because, when the man sees the providence of God, his granite heart will soften, he will become sensitive and he will burst into praise, and this is not in the devil's interest ".
