Fr. Seraphim (Rose) of Platina: On the Mind and Living Faith

When I became a Christian I voluntarily crucified my mind, and all the crosses that I bear have been only a source of joy for me. I have lost nothing and gained everything.
–Father Seraphim Rose (Cathy Scott, Seraphim Rose: The True Story and Private Letters, p. 191)

Orthodoxy is life. If we don’t live Orthodoxy, we simply are not Orthodox, no matter what formal beliefs we hold.
–Father Seraphim Rose (Cathy Scott, Seraphim Rose: The True Story and Private Letters, p. 231)

For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ . . . (2 Cor. 10:3-5 ESV)
