† Archimandrite Georgios Kapsanis, Abbot of the Holy Monastery of Gregoriou
It’s egotism that prevents people from loving God and their neighbour. Christians strive to root out egotism from within themselves, to root out the passions that darken their mind and make a prisoner of their heart. They strive to please God. They know God’s commandments and want to observe them assiduously in their lives.
