St. Tikhon of Zadonsk: If we want, Christian, to have our heart filled with divine love . . .

Icon of St. Tikhon of Zadonsk“If we want, Christian, to have our heart filled with divine love we must first empty them of the love of this world, its frivolous and sinful customs and then turn our hearts to the one God, our only good and happiness and eternal beatitude.”

— St. Tikhon of Zadonsk,  “True Christianity”
