Saint Jean de Cronstadt, Russie (+1908):
Plus l’homme mène une vie spirituelle, plus il se spiritualise. En tout il commence à voir Dieu, en tout il voit la manifestation de sa toute-puissance. Toujours et partout il se voit comme demeurant en Dieu et dans sa dépendance. Mais plus l’homme mène une vie charnelle, plus il devient entièrement charnel. Il ne voit Dieu en rien, même dans les manifestations les plus miraculeuses de sa Toute-puissance. Il ne voit partout et toujours que réalité charnelle et matière: “Il n’y a point de crainte de Dieu devant ses yeux”(Ps. 35:2).

ΠΑΤΗΡ ΣΤΕΦΑΝΟΣ ΑΝΑΓΝΩΣΤΟΠΟΥΛΟΣ
Κάποτε, ο άγιος Γρηγόριος ο Παλαμάς είχε μία συζήτηση με έναν σεβάσμιο Γέροντα, ονόματι Ιώβ.
Ο Άγιος υπεστήριζε ότι όλοι: νέοι και γέροι, άντρες και γυναίκες, μοναχοί και λαϊκοί, μικροί και μεγάλοι, μπορούν να προσεύχωνται αδιαλείπτως, επικαλούμενοι μέσα από την καρδιά τους τον Ιησού και μάλιστα με την καρδιακή λεγομένη Νοερά προσευχή.
Ο μοναχός Ιώβ είχε επίμονα τις αντιρρήσεις του και επέμενε ότι αυτό είναι έργο μόνο των μοναχών και ασκητών της ‘ερήμου’.
Μετά την συνομιλία τους ανεχώρησε ο καθένας στο κελλάκι του. Και θέλησε ο Ιώβ να προσευχηθεί και

Saint Nathalan / Nachlan
Bishop of Tullich, Scotland (+678)
January 19
Saint Nathalan or Nachlan (+678) is a saint who was active in the district now known as Aberdeenshire, Scotland. He is also known by the names Saint Nachlan and Saint Nauchlan.
Saint Nathalan was born in the village of Tullich, for which he was eventually appointed as bishop. The earliest church in Tullich was founded by Saint Nathalan in the 7th century. He also built churches at Bothelim and Colle. He was a nobleman who cultivated. He possessed a large estate, which he cultivated and distributed his harvest generously to the poor. He was one of the Apostles of that country.
Saint Nathalan is reputed to have built the first small chapel on the windswept clifftop at Cowie sometime during the 7th century.
One very rainy summer the great saint, in a moment’s weakness, cursed the rain which was hindering the

Because she has from the Apostles, without break or change, both her doctrine and the succesion of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, through the laying of consecrated hands. In the same sense the Church is called Orthodox, or Right-believing.
“You are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; and are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;” (Eph. 2:19-20).

Saint Paisios of Mount Athos in Greece (+1994)
& the young George the Tibetan Buddhist monk
Source:
ORTHODOX PATH
George, a young man of sixteen or seventeen, came to Mount Athos in Greece to go from one monastery to another. Though Greek by blood, he had been raised abroad from early childhood among Tibetan Buddhist monks in their monastery. He had made a great deal of progress in meditation, and he had become an accomplished sorcerer, able to summon any demon he wanted. He was also an expert in the martial arts. Using the power of Satan, he made impressive displays of his abilities: he broke hazelnuts in his palm, and tossed away the shells while the nuts remained attached to his hand. He could read closed books. He struck large rocks with his bare hand, and they shattered like walnuts.
Some monks brought George to Saint Paisios so that he could help him. George asked Saint Paisios what powers he had, what he could do, and the St Paisios answered that he himself didn’t have any power, and that all power is from God.
George, wanting to demonstrate his power, concentrated his gaze on a large rock in the distance, and it shattered. Saint Paisios took a small rock and made the sign of the Cross over it, and told him to destroy it too. He concentrated and performed his magic, but he couldn’t shatter it. Then he started trembling, and the satanic powers―which he thought he controlled―since they weren’t able to break the rock, turned against him and hurled him to the opposite bank of the river. Saint Paisios picked him up in a miserable condition.
“Another time,” recounted St Paisios, “while we were talking, he suddenly stood up, grabbed me by the arms and spun me around backward. ‘Let’s see Hadjiefendis get you lose, if he can,’ he said. I felt it was like blasphemy to say that. I moved my hands a little, like this, and he was jerked away. He jumped up in the air and tried to kick me, but his foot stopped near my face, like it had hit an invisible wall! God protected me.
“At night, I kept him there, and he slept in my cell. The demons dragged him down into the pit and thrashed him for failing. In the morning he was in a bad state, injured and covered in thorns and dirt. He confessed, ‘Satan beat me up because I couldn’t defeat you.’”
St Paisios convinced George to bring him his magical texts, and he burned them. “When he came here”, St Paisios recalled, “he had some sort of charm or amulet with him. I went to take it, but he wouldn’t give it to me. I took a candle and said, “Lift the leg of your pants up a little.” Then I put the lit candle against his leg―he yelled and jumped up. “Well,” I said, “if the flame from a little candle is for you, how are you going to endure the fire of hell that you’re going to end up in because of what you’re doing?”
St Paisios kept the young man close to him for a little while and helped him, so long as he was willing to be obedient. He felt such compassion for him that he said, “I would leave the desert and go out into the world to help this boy.” He made an effort to learn if he had been baptized and even found out the name of the church where his baptism had taken place. Shaken by the power and the grace of the Elder, George wanted to become a monk, but he wasn’t able to.
Saint Paisios would refer to George’s case to show what a delusion it is to think that all religions are the same, that everyone believes in the same God, and that there’s no difference between Tibetan Buddhist and Orthodox monks.
