. . . Of Whom I am Chief

“One first gives himself totally to God, and then God cleanses him and gives him back to the people. When such a person believes that he is the worst of all, then one of his “Lord have mercies” said on behalf of the world is worth more than someone else’s one thousand “Lord have mercies.”

from an Athonite Gerontikon
