Walking in Church is walking in Heaven

21 December 2015 Spiritual words
 

Walking in church with a pure heart will bring you salvation. 

When they read the Word of God, we shall forget all the worldly things and focus on listening God’s commandments.

Fearful are the Sacraments committed in Church! Therefore, we need to enter the church with fear and tremble.

Walking in church with a pure heart will bring you salvation, but if your heart is tainted, you enter the church towards sin and judgement. 

Those who partake with the Body and Blood of Christ without being worthy, they bring punishment upon themselves.

If those who taint the Royal Porfira are punished, then how much more worthy of doom are those who partake with the Holy Sacraments with a tainted heart?

(Translated from Patericul Lavrei Sfântului Sava, Editura Egumenița, 2010, p. 148)
