Volume IV of The Philokalia: The Complete Text

“Brethren and fathers, it is god that we make God’ mercy known to all and speak to those close to us of the compassion and inexpressible bounty He has shown us. For as you know I neither fasted, nor kept vigils, nor slept on bare ground, but—to borrow the Psalmist’s words—‘I humbled myself’ and, in short, ‘the Lord saved me.’ Or, to put it even more briefly, I did no more than believe and the Lord accepted me (cf. Ps. 116 : 6, 10; 27 : 10. LXX). Man things stand in the way of our acquiring humility, but there is nothing that prevents us from having faith. For if we want it with all our heart, it will immediately become active in us, since it is God’s gift to us and a pre-eminent characteristic of our nature, even though it is also subject to our individual power of free will.”
—“On Faith”
