St. Silouan the Athonite: The saints were people like all of us. . . .

Icon of St. Silouan the Athonite“The saints were people like all of us. Many of them came out of great sins, but by repentance they attained the Kingdom of Heaven. And everyone who comes there comes through repentance, which the merciful Lord has given us through His sufferings.”
