Let Us Guard Our Faith As The Greatest Treasure

By St. Luke, Archbishop of Simferopol and Crimea

Do not be scandalized when you hear what is said against the Faith, since they who say those things do not understand its essence... You should always remember the basic principle that the early Christians knew very well. They considered unfortunate the man who knew all the sciences, but did not know God. Conversely they considered the one who knew God to be blessed, even if they completely lacked human knowledge.

Guard this truth as the greatest treasure within your hearts, proceed straight ahead and do not look to your left or to your right. Let us not allow them to make us lose our bearings, with the things they say against religion. Let us hold on to our Faith, which is eternally true and undeniable. Amen.
