The nation doesn’t simply need what we have, it needs what we are. – St. Teresia Benedicta (Edith Stein)

Priests have received a power which God has given neither to angels nor archangels. It was said to them: ‘Whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever you shall loose, shall be loosed.’ Temporal rulers have indeed the power of binding; but they can only bind the body. Priests, in contrast, can bind with a bond which pertains to the soul itself and transcends the very heavens. Did [God] not give them all the powers of heaven?… What greater power is there than this? The Father has given all judgment to the Son. And now I see the Son placing all His power in the hands of men. They are raised to this dignity as if they were already gathered up to heaven. – St. John Chrysostom

Where there is no prayer and fasting, there are the demons. – St. Theophan the Recluse
