Love Is Action:

Love is actions—without them, there is no love. And these actions do not have to be grand gestures, simply the small, ordinary actions of our daily lives. The important thing is that these actions be done out of true love.

'How much do I love God?':

In today's Gospel, Jesus says, 'a sound tree produces good fruit.' If we look deep into our hearts, do we find God's presence, good intentions, compassion and love for others? These are the signs that show how much we love God.


Nothing can ever so humble the soul as destitution and the subsistence of a beggar. We will show ourselves true lovers of wisdom and of God if we stubbornly run away from all possibility of exaltation.

- Saint John Climacus
