By St. Luke of Simferopol
The rose doesn't speak but it gives off a strong fragrance. We also need to be fragrant, to emit a spiritual aroma, the aroma of Christ.
Let the scent of our actions be heard from afar - good, pure, just and full of love.
Only this way can the Kingdom of God that exists in our hearts be revealed, manifesting itself not with words but with power. Amen.
