Elder Moisis the Athonite †
Sanctity isn’t isolation and it isn’t loneliness. Sanctity’s a beautiful and sacred relationship. A relationship with God, the source of sanctity, who sanctifies people and makes them images of meekness, divine persons. There’s no sanctity other than that bestowed by God himself on his faithful servants. It’s not a discovery, an asset, a personal achievement, an individual success or a moral feat. It’s not about breaking records, winning championships or being the best.
