Love is happiness: pure and simple
The more you love Christ, the more it seems to you that you do not love Him and yearn more and more, to love Him.
Because the most beautiful and compelling discourse about love is the embrace, let us open widely all the arms of our heart and to hold everyone in our embrace so that we can reach Christ.
People away from God are, in fact, alone and the most unhappy people in the world both in this life and in the eternal future.
Based on the Saint Porphyrios of Kavsokalivia, father Dumitru Staniloae, father Ioan Iovan, Saint Paisios the Athonite
