Let Us Forget All That Divides Us

Let us forget all that divides us: hostility, competition, superficiality and hatred. Let us only think of where we are going and before Whom we will stand. Let us understand that all it takes to stand worthily before the Lord, to be able to accept us, is to accept and forgive each other with love, to support the weak on this path, to strengthen the sick, to give hope to the hopeless, and help everyone arrive at the goal.

- Metropolitan Anthony (Bloom) of Surouzh
